I DID IT - I DID IT - I Almost Did It

Hi Blogger Friends.  I would like to give a warm welcome to all my new followers and a howdy to the others.  Thank you all for reading my blog and for the wonderful comments.  I do so love to read them.  Sorry, I'm pokey at replying, but I get there eventually. 
Well, my leg decided to get another infection last Thursday.  Usually it gets red blotches - I take antibiotics and a few days the blotches are pretty much gone.  Its weird this time.  I just have like 4 red and very tender spots.  There is one on the top of my foot that really hurts - the others are pretty much gone.  (Of course, we all know that I don't get normal stuff.)
What you came to see.

I DID IT - I actually kinda sorta backstitched a mouse on the back of the horse.  I think he looks okay and a whole lot better than the other two I tried.  I also backstitched the shelf/rack and the ropes/leads.

I Almost Did It - Darn, I'm 200 stitches short of finishing page 2.  I did the white sacks and the creamy and yellowy by the carrots.

I DID IT - Finish #14
Thankful Critters - Urusla Michael
14ct antique white aida
Started 1-15-12
Finished 9-1-13

Good Morning - Joan Elliott

I have also been the lucky winner of a couple giveaways.

I won this absolutely adorable owl from Liz at Tangled Web.
Thank you so much Liz.  I love Owlie.

I won this hidden giveaway from Sharon at It's Daffycat.   
My very first pin keep with pins.  My favorite floss and hand lotion.  And some fabric.  Thank you so much Sharon.
I am so envious of all you stitchers that stitch on high count fabric.  There is just no way I can see those little tiny holes.

I'll leave you with a picture of the lapghan that I crocheted for Kaye along with Morris strolling by.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Hope you leg heals: funny but the spot on your foot sounds like gout? I wonder if that has been considered? I love the finishes and the stable is coming on beautifully. The mouse is lovely xxxxx And the finish is perfect.

Love your mouse on horsies back! Great finish on the critters and I am sorry to say that you made a mistake - Furio is quite convinced that you made the lapghan for him! Seriously, though, we both love it and use it every evening and think of our dear friends so far away.

Well done on your finish :)
And congrats in your secret giveaway win :)
Your mouse looks great - I can see how hard that back stitch is but it's worth it as the whole design really starts to come to come to life with it added in :)
