Give Thanks

I had a small Stitch-In here at my house a couple weeks ago. (two weeks this Sat) I decided to start a new piece that day, instead of try to work on one of my larger WIP pieces.
I had seen this one stitched by someone on the 123 message board & decided it would be a good one to do! So, first I pulled all of the flosses and then I switched out the 3 pumpkin colors for my Victorian Motto Sampler flosses. The rest are the called for colors. I used a piece of potato lugana that I had on hand.
The pattern is called Give Thanks & it is an older pattern by Katidid.
I love how this turned out & I want my husband to make a frame for it & then I will decide how to finish the frame.
relaxed Elmo (sorry...taken with my phone!)
Elmo is doing fantastic. Who would believe the differences between he & Dudley. Oh my!!!! We loved Dudley, but we are so much more comfortable with Elmo. He is a delight to have in the home & we are so thankful we found him. He has renewed our hope in rescue dogs!!!!!

Cute piece you're working on!

OMG, I just realized Elmo is a Standard poodle! For some reason, I thought he was a TOY poodle! LOL!

He looks really cute on the love seat!

Elmo is a total cutie!!! Best wishes for all of you. I always think that those who rescue an animal are truly angels on earth.

This a great photo of Elmo - he obviously feels right at home!

It is you! One of your buddy stitchers at the stitch-in mentioned she'd been to Shari's house. I wondered if it were you! She's a sweetie - glad you all can get together. Elmo is so cute! And of course, great stitching!
