apparently .....

Apparently I don't know what a car looks like nor a street sign but I seem to be able to recognize a road ..... yessiree, I'm talking about proving I'm not a robot  - what a pain in the arse it has become - I think it has run amok.  The good news is that you no longer have to prove you're not a robot if you'd like to leave a comment here.  Also, since we're dealing with the techie stuff - my blog is secure - you see the 's' after the http and the lock  - that tells you it's secure - just in case you didn't know.

I finished a couple of x-stitch pieces that I stitched over the winter.  The bigger one is "Little Dog" and the smaller one is "Old Dog" - they're both waiting for us on the Rainbow Bridge.  I did the finishing at the cabin with the bits 'n pieces that I could get my hands on.  The bigger one has cord made from braiding three strands of jute twine and the other used a small piece of cording that I had tucked away - rustic finishes but I like rustic.




We're all moved in to/into (?) our new place but if you were to ask if everything was in it's place and there was a place for everything the answer would be NO!   But the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom are set up so we can function - we're not spending much time there.  I finally found the box of kitchen dishes - we had been using the 'open me first kitchen box' - thank goodness for the 'open me first' boxes - they are a lifesaver.  We have all winter to settle in - summer is short so we want to enjoy it at the cabin - life is short at our age so we want to enjoy it at the cabin. 



don't stumble over something behind you

Your dog stitches are sweet and precious, Kate! I'm with about enjoying where you are at. Have a wonderful weekend!

Enjoy the process and don't stress about getting it all finished at once. You stitcheries look so sweet there.

Good to read that you eventually have settled in at your new place. Maybe it will take a while until all the boxes will be unpacked but as long as your life at the new place functions that's OK. We still have two or three boxes unpacked in our basement - and our last move was 25 years ago, lol. We should just get rid of them, unpacked.
Your two new finished pieces are so darling, Kate. And they look so great in that bucket full of twigs and branches.

lovely stitchings Kate, and good to hear you're settling in.
Re the robot thing - yep, it's becoming a pain on so many blogs and makes leaving comments a chore rather than a pleasure.

I like your dog stitches as well! Love rustic! Happy stitching! :)

Hi Kate... I got sick of that verification process with commenting, so one day ages ago, I just typed a comment & clicked the orange box to 'publish comment'... AND IT WORKED! So I stopped doing that robot thing, & I've never had a problem leaving Comments, go figure!

Lovely stitching too!

Your dog stitches are beautiful and love how you arranged them in the rustic setting.
I am with you, I am enjoying as much time as I can outside, I will be stuck in the house, once winter comes.
