Hey, Friends!
Thank you all for your concern!  Pixie is feeling better and eating a tiny bit today. 
Now don’t you want to see what I’d rather do than clean house on extra days off?  Notice the different background?  Kind of plain, but I loved the linen and red.
One of the ideas from PALS – Stitching at the Beach was a darling little cloth thread catcher Myra from Gr8Dames Place made for Faye’s birthday.  Mine isn’t nearly as neat and tidy as Myra’s was, but I made it from Blackbirds’ Designs Beach House fabrics, which does help it a lot.  
I also pulled out an ornament I stitched a long while ago to finish.  I think it came from one of the JCS Ornament issues, by Sue Hillis.  I had the boards cut at my lns, Stitch and Frame.  It’s hard to see the sparkle on the backing fabric and there are pearl-ish beads around the borders.
Thanks for stopping by – again!  I appreciate all your words of kindness and humor!
and Happy Stitching
