Happy News at Last!!!!

Can you believe it I've got happy news to share. Our darling puppy was born on Wednesday evening. This is him with his Mum Pippa , brother and seven sisters. There were only two boys in the litter. One cream and one red. You can see Cupar (dark coloured puppy) on the left off the picture. We need to wait 5 weeks before we can go visit him and then another 4 weeks before we get to bring him home. It;s going to be a long 9 weeks. 

I have been working on this piece to give to Brenda & Brian at Lomond Hills as a thank-you for our new puppy. I hope to frame it when finished.

The only other stitching I have been doing is a little progress on my Curly Q stitch-a-long with Sally and Mouse. I really need to give her some hair as she is starting to freak me

I couldn't resist treating myself to this cute tea-bag holder last week. There was also some lovely sheep tea towels. I may need to buy one on my next visit.
I thought I would give you a closer look at my sheep scissors that a few people commented on in my last post. I was thrilled to receive them from a lady in the States in a exchange package. I believe they came from this site 

My dear friend Rosemary surprised me with this beautiful bunch of flowers yesterday. I think they are "Sweet Williams". I was so touched by her kindness.
I just want to finish by saying thank you so much to everyone who took the time to comment on my last post. Not having been around very much lately it was so nice to see there are still people out there interested in reading my blog. I hope everyone is having a lovely Summer. Happy Stitches!

Hello Lainey

What lovely news and what a gorgeous puppy! It will seem an age until you bring him home. We met our kitty Molly when she was three days old and the wait seemed never ending. It's well worth the wait though!
I love your wip for the puppy breeders!
Lovely SAL too.
Those scissors are just brilliant and I love your flowers!
Hope you have a lovely summer (:
