A Finish & An Answer!

Good morning! I do believe this has to be a first!!! I started & finished this piece in just a few days. Then, my husband only waited a couple days (until the weekend) to make the frame. So, the piece was stitched, framed & hung on the wall all within a weeks time.!!!
I had stitched the other three pieces last fall, but we didn't get them framed until a few weeks ago. As I went to hang them where I wanted them, I told him I had to do a 4th one. He said to just put  a small shelf or something on the 4th peg. I wasn't happy with that, so off to stitch the 4th one I went. Thankfully, I found the matching fabric & he found the matching wood for the frame.
That tells about the finish part of my title! The Answer part is referring to Bronson. I would not rest well until I went out & visited him & found out for sure what I thought. So, the little guy that I babysit for & myself went out one day. We got there soon after they opened that day. I waited & waited for someone to assist us. Finally, a lady came out & asked if she could help us. I said I would like to look at a dog. She asked which one...I told her Bronson. She told me that he has been adopted, but was still there, so we could look at him if we wanted. I said sure, I would love to see him & also look at the others who were there.
We went back & went to the big dog room first. We walked down the aisle & I spotted Bronson. He was all scrunched up in the front corner of his kennel like a scared rabbit. As we got closer, he got up, went to the back of his kennel & proceeded to growl & bark at us. I don't know if he was growling & barking at me or the little boy, but I KNEW then that there was no way, even had he NOT been adopted already. He had too many similarities to Dudley.....if you remember him!!! I could not have adopted this dog & felt good about it.
So, we wait again. When the right dog comes along, we will get another, otherwise, we will be very content & happy with Mo.
have a great week! Enjoy this beautiful time of year!

Love all your frames - so colourful and really shows off your stitching beautifully.

Pity about Bronson but at least you know now.

Carol said...

What a great group of all stitchings, Shari--so glad you decided to stitch the 4th one :)

Bronson doesn't sound like he would have been the right fit for you, but I'm sure another dog will come along very soon!

Hope you have a wonderful week...

Your Halloween wall is adorable. I'm impressed that your husband can make the frames for you. What a money saver ;)

Mylene said...

WOW! All looks great, Shari. The frames fits perfectly. Great job to you both.

Mary said...

Shari, your Halloween pieces look adorable grouped together. You are so lucky to have your own custom made frames!

The right puppy is out there waiting for you. Your patience will pay off.

Oh Shari, your Halloween pieces look gorgeous hanging together on the wall. It would have been a pity not to stitch the fourth in the series. You're so lucky that your husband is able to make all these great frames for your stitching. They couldn't look better!
