Bothy Threads cut-thru SAL Update 8

Hi Blogger Friends.  I think I made some nice progress on the Stable.  As you can tell from my updates, I always skip around when I'm stitching.  Always have - always will.  I get bored with an area so  move on to a different one.  Actually, I stitched the whole horse before I moved on this time.  (kinda scary)  Except, she doesn't have a tail yet.  I named her after me "Old Gray Nag".  I keep telling her as long as she keeps nagging me for her tail, the longer she has to wait.  Point being, if I stitched in one area it would look like at had more done.

Stable

John's Narrow Boat

Thankful Critters - Ursula Michael - Every other weekend SAL with Debbie.   Stiff fabric and way to many quarter stitches equals very time consuming.

Halloween House - Ursula Michael


I have to tell you a funny story.  I had the front door open Monday and there is about a one inch space at the bottom of the screen door.  We keep a towel there, but I have a bad girl that likes to play with it.  So I spend all day putting it back.  I go in there about 3:30 and there is a baby lizard on the floor.  Now mind you, I have 10 cats.  The only cat in there is the 18 year old Persian who could care less about a lizard.  Not another to be found.  I grab the cat scratching post and put it on the lizard and jump up and down (sorta).  I look underneath and its curled up.  I put the post back and jump up and down again.  Look - still curled up - touch it with the corner and it takes off.  (stupid or should I say smart thing was playing dead).  So I get it  into the bathroom.  Put the cat tree on it and repeat.  Still didn't work so I put a bucket over it and decided to let my husband get rid of it when he got home.  He goes in there, picks the bucket up, lizard runs under the door and is now nowhere to be found.  (Still no cats either)  So now I won't open the door because I'm worried that another lizard will come in and they will have sex and I will have dozens of baby lizards in the house.

Thanks for looking.    Linda

Enjoyed reading your post! Good progress on stitching!! I too skip and do different parts of stitching quite often. I hate quarter stitches especially if the design is small and if hanged on a wall, no one is going to notice the hardwork gone into the details.

Old gray nag is cute, I love the girl feeding her carrots. And in Hawaii aren't geckos in the house considered good luck? Maybe it's the same thing with lizards?

Anne said...

Hopefully the lizard will turn up and there won't be any more!! Great progress on all your WIP's!!

Lynn said...

that stable is coming along nicely!!! And is she really innocent or just playing one???

SoCal Debbie said...

Stable looks wonderful, Linda! Thankful Critters is coming along so quickly! Halloween House looks caught up to mine now.

I had a lizard story like that too, but the dog and cats were all looking at it. One of the cats finally grabbed it in her mouth, but it got away. I thought it ran back outside, but my daughter found it dead the next day under the dog bed when she moved it to vacuum. Yikes!

ROFL at your lizard story especially the thought of lizard procreation!

Your stitching is looking good too, lots of progress even if the old grey mare doesn't have a tail yet.
