Sally, Biscornu and Leprechaun Lodge

A week ago yesterday, our 13 year old miniature Schnauzer, Sally Bear, had a stroke.  It's been a bit of a rough week without her.  Our oldest miniature Schnauzer, Missy, was her best friend.  Sally was our Miss Congeniality - she loved everyone.  She followed me everywhere and was first to snuggle in my lap or lay beside me.  Sally's tail never stopped wagging, even when you'd scold her - she was so glad you were talking to her ;).  Whenever I'd come home, there she'd be - on the couch - woo-wooing,waiting to give me ear nibbles to tell me she missed me and welcome me back.

Sally is now waiting for us at Rainbow's Bridge. 

I ran across this beautiful biscornu pattern from Sharon Manspeaker - Roberta's Pups Biscornu (http://xstitchhappy.com).  It reminded me of sweet Sally.  I worked on stitching it together this past week.  It's my first biscornu and I look forward to doing more.  Sally - Here's to you, Baby Girl.

Here is a freebie I stitched from Blue Ribbon Designs (www.blueribbondesigns.com) called Leprechaun Lodge.  Isn't it adorable?  I can't quite decide how to complete it - pillow? ornament? Stay tuned!


  1. So sorry for your loss! Hugs and prayers!

    Your stitching is wonderful!

  2. Kim, I am so sorry. Man, it's hard losing them isn't it? It does help having the others though doesn't it.
    What a sweet biscornu. I have Leprechaun Lodge collecting dust in that "to do" pile.
