Spotted Hare Complete, Another WIP and Emma

I finished stitching the coussinet biscournu (I'm doing a HAPPY DANCE).  Can hardly wait for the finishing instructions.

I'm working on a pair of Flip Swaps, designed by Sandy Arthur.  They are fun, interchangeable straps that fit onto sandals marketed as Switchflops.  Hopefully I'll get these completed before the sandal season is over.  But there's always next year or a vacation in a warm climate in December.  :)

On a sillier note, we have a delightful five pound teacup white chocolate schnauzer named Emma.  She is as mischievous  as she is cute.  We should have named her Tigger from Winnie the Pooh.  Whenever I see her bouncing around the house, the following chant comes to mind: "The most wonderful things about Tiggers, are Tiggers are wonderful things.  Their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of springs!" She has a crooked smile that makes us laugh every time we look at her.

Little Emma has her own car seat we tether her harness in on the console of our Escape.  She LOVES rides.

Here she is in a sweater I knitted for her.  You can't see it well, but there are ruffles on the back of the sweater and faux pearls around her neck - because every girl needs a black dress and pearls.  HA!

Yes, she's spoiled.

Happy Stitching - Cheers!


  1. Awww, Emma is adorable!!! Love the pics of her -- and so stylish in her sweater too! Love your Spotted Hare piece -- so pretty!! I'm envious.

    And I so love the idea of SwitchFlops! I've never heard of them before. And how cool that a needlework designer came up with a strap for them.

  3. Switch Flops is really neat!
    Emma is precious!!!! Love her in the Escape(we love our Escape, we are on our second one). She looks lovely in her black dress and pearls.
