Stitching and More Stitching

poor Chester...peacefully resting on the bed next to the computer...shortly after this photo I attempted to give him his liquid antibiotic ...
today we are switching to his third antibiotic in three days...
the first one made him vomit,
the second one he refused to swallow and merely drooled it out of his mouth...
today we're switching to a pill...
and I'm buying the expensive antibiotic/hormone free
boneless chicken breast to cook and hide it in...
Olivia...looks like a mug shot...
she was checking out my current piece of needlework...
she's such a little pistol...always on the go go go
and usually jumping on Chester
every chance she gets

I did this piece last week...will soon be a pinkeep...my design, using rabbits from an antique sampler...

A Stacy Nash design with some variation, using birds from an

Exemplars From the Heart chart

...there will be a piece of calico in the center and this will become a sewing roll...

My design using alphabets and motifs from antique samplers....I call it The Pansy Sampler in honor of my maternal grandmother...she was born in 1884 and loved to make quilts, doll clothes...any type of sewing...I am blessed to have inherited her love of handwork...

Another of my designs using the alphabets from an old sampler and motifs from my imagination...

I've been drawing up lots of designs for hooking, but the needle feels most comfortable in my hand right now...

Hey Kelley,

That poor Chester...how is he doing now? Your stitcheries are wonderful, as always. I have that same pattern for the sewing roll...going to make it for Mom for Mother's Day (planning ahead for once!), so will post photos when it's done. I see that you're not running out of ideas, so I will tell Allegra and Tag to not count on their own little pinkeeps any time soon {grin}. Love your blog...keep up the good work.

Kelley, your work is just pouring out from your hands! It is all lovely...keep it coming!

Poor Chester, I hope he is coming along well now. I am sorry it has taken me so long to come in and visit. With the disc problems and then that terrible flu, I have been totally out of the box! I am catching up and doing much better the past few days. Thank The Maker!

Olivia is adorable...she has the prettiest big eyes! My Boo is always watching me stitch and anything else I engage in craftwise. They are such little friends aren't they? Always keeping us company. :-) We are so blessed! =^..^=

Hugs,
