The last two posts I've made have been my monthly TUSAL updates, so all you've seen from me in awhile is all the ORT's that I've generated but not what I've been stitching on to generate those ORT's. So, here's an update of all the stitching that I've been up to!
First off, I finished By My Hand by Barrick Samplers. I personalized it a bit and now it's off at the framer's who has a stunning frame picked out for it. I can't wait to show you!
Next up was Margaret Cottam. She was a really fun stitch and perfect for fall with those rich jewel toned colors. I must admit, I didn't have any plans to stitch her but then I saw one stitched up in person and fell in love. I took progress pics along the way, so here is Margaret Cottam.
Margaret Cottam was stitched on 35 ct. WDW Cocoa with the called for threads. All I did was pick a tighter weave so she'd be a little smaller (and so I'd only have to use one thread to stitch with). I was back in Wisconsin last weekend and picked out a fabulous frame for her at Lynn's of Madison.
I've obviously been stitching a bunch and just too busy to post. One of the reasons I've been so busy lately is that Sage and I are in the process of becoming a certified pet therapy team at one of the local hospitals. We spent three weeks in class and are now doing paperwork and tests to finish our certification. Here we are graduating from the program! Next we will get certified through TD, Inc as a team and I will complete the volunteer training at the hospital and then we'll start visiting patients. I'm looking forward to having my rescue dog help others in need!
