Friday Finish!


This has been one of those days. This morning I decided to trim Bean's nails and misjudged, so I had to   try and keep him still while I held a compress on it and Bill ran out for a septic stick. Next time I won't attempt it without someone else holding him, while I cut;)

Then I start cooking and while the cookies are baking, I get all the apples out for apple crisp. I need water to rinse them before I cut and my water is coming out brown. I check the other taps and they are all brown. It seems the town was putting in new sewer lines and broke into the pipe that runs into our house, ugh. So, I had to wait most of the day for the water to run clear and then run all my taps to clean out the pipes. I finally was able to make my crisp and clean the house.

I wanted to make a punched piece to go with a piece I made, as a gift and finally finished it tonight. I still have to fill in a few spots that I missed and I also need to redo the greenery in the snow basket, it needs to be a brighter green to show up. I enlarged the design and think I got carried away, it is 7" x 6".
Now I have to decide how I want to finish it. The design is by All Through The Night. I did the piece in 6 strands of dmc floss.


Bean has been keeping me busy, most of the time. He has toys to play with but after a while, when I am not looking, he grabs something off a shelve and starts chewing, so I cannot take my eyes off of him. This is what happens, after a few seconds of quiet, I found this on the floor with him. I just bought it yesterday on sale, but still, I would have liked it to last the season, lol. I hope everyone had a fun halloween, no one stopped at our house, all the kids in the area, are grown and gone.

Oh, Debbie. I love the snow angel. I like how you made designs within the sections. I don't know that I would have thought of doing that.

Great needlepunch!!! My boy Ben loves his toys to death too. He doesn't purposely tear them up but plays with them so much they up needing a mom's repair too. So glad new toys will be in abundance since it is getting close to Christmas time and I can throw out some of his favorite stinky ones.

Love the snow angel! I've never punched with six strands. I need to get back to some punch work.
That Bean, that must be a reason puppies are cute - they are quickly forgiven :-)

oh, the joys of having a puppy. I remember when I had a puppy. She would get my thread and make a mess with it.
I never did like trimming my dogs nails.
Love your snowman.

That's been happening to us all summer, Debbie, they've been working on the water mains - sometimes we can't take a shower in the morning, always an unpleasant surprise! Glad it finally cleared up for you. I LOVE your little snow angel!
And don't feel bad about Bean's nail - it happens to all of us at least once, I think!
