Happy 10th Birthday Dougie...!!

Yesterday, 13th September, was my beautiful, sweet American Cocker Spaniel, Dougie's, 10th Birthday.! I honestly thought he would not make this special birthday as the sweet dear is suffering badly from infected glands which is causing his ears to become swollen and full of waxy debri, which then sadly causes skin abrasions.

My old vet kept telling me that it was a hopeless case and that I had to put him to sleep, but I just could not bring myself to do it. Took Dougie to a new vets and in the first visit she diagnoised what was wrong with him and gave me the proper medications. Goes to show that even with pets, you should always get a second opinion..!!

My sweet boy is slowly recovering and I couldnt be more greatful. If ever it was possible to love a pet as much as I do with Dougie. He is like my contant joy and my little protector. And I am so happy be able to share his 10th birthday with you all.

I love you sweet little boy. Happy Birthday and may you have many, many more..!

Hugs and Stitching,

2x Embroidered Ornaments

Oh my goodness, I didnt realize just how many months have passed since I last blogged. Life and stress has a habit of getting in the way as usual.

On the stitching front, I did manage to embroider and finish the following 2x ornaments a couple of weeks ago.

The first is a round one that is looking slightly wonky in the photos. lol. This is my own design using Cast On Stitch Roses, and Bullion Stitch Daisies. I crocheted the edgeing myself.

The second is a square ornament, again my own design, with Cast On Roses, and Lazy Daisy stitch flowers. Little white seed pearls decorate the edge. Lace is hand crocheted by me also.

They measure at about 4" in diameter, and I have them hanging on my dressing table.

Hope you enjoy,

Hugs and Stitches,
