Oriole Update & Dudley Update

I have not had a whole lot of stitching time lately, but I finally got to a point that I thought a picture was in order. I was surprised at how much progress I had made since the last picture I posted of it. I am ready to start on the female oriole now. I then have more leaves to do & it will be finished. Excuse the wrinkles....I didn't take time to press it before taking the picture & putting it back in my Q Snaps.
Update on Dudley.....
I took him to a new groomer today....she grooms in a room attached to her home. She asked if I would like to/ could stay....I said I would love to stay, because I felt he would do so much better. And I am certain that he did. He was a very nervous boy, but she was able to get him groomed. She doesn't have a whole lot of experience with poodles, so she didn't do some of the things the same as our previous groomer, but I am thrilled to have him looking like a poodle again. (for the first time since we got him!!!) He was in need of a groom back when we got him.
He is adjusting real well...he does great with us. He does great with the people I babysit for. He did great with our grandsons when we visited them down there. Now men who come into our home...another story...he is not fond of men....He is getting better, but it is taking much time.
well, this is short, but I would like to go stitch for a while now....

Beautiful stitching.I just love birds! We have a new addition too. I haven't blogged for awhile as our Lady Mae took a turn for the worse. We had to send her over the rainbow bridge last Thursday. On Saturday Devin brought home Max. He is a 9 week old mix. He is a bundle of joy to have around and is certainly making things a little easier for everyone (dogs and humans). Hug Dudley for me :)

Why there really was a poodle under all that fur!! Dudley is looking mighty handsome, Shari. I sure hope he gets over his fear of men soon.

Love the oriole stitching--such beautiful birds!!

Hope your weekend is relaxing and stitch-filled :)
