I Can't Stop Dancing...

Brynwood Needleworks - A Commissioned Piece
Needle Dancing, that is.
I've created this as part of a commissioned piece. Now that the embroidery is finished, I'll be assembling the rest of the materials to complete it. (I'll be sure to share the finished work with you!)
Brynwood Needleworks - Making Floral Necklaces

I was assembling pendants today, too, from the flowers I've already embroidered. There will be more of these coming, too. I'm going to wait until I have a number of them finished before listing them all up for sale. If you see one you want, you can let me know, and I'll pull it from the lineup. (The lilacs and clover shown here are already claimed, but I can make another for you. Because each one is hand crafted, no two will be exactly alike.)
So, if you're looking for me, I'll either be in the Compass Barn, visiting with that little black and white cat, or I'll be in my studio surrounded by my canine admirers. See you tomorrow!

It's Been A Long, Long Time...

Brynwood Needleworks - Embroidery Threads

I can tell you the exact time I last went out shopping for embroidery threads. Sure, I've purchased a few specific assortments, but the last time I purchased threads in a shop was in Lexington, when my tutor, Owen and I went in search of silk threads for the butterfly from my RSN class. I can't believe that's already three years ago!

With all the flower bouquets I've been embroidering, I've been quickly using up a number of my favorite colors. I needed to get more. So, after Tag's vet appointment (Yes. He survived. lol), Handsome and I took him home, and went back out to run a few errands - including a stop to purchase more threads. 

By the time we got back home, it was time for airing and feeding the pups, me feeding Claudette, and then making dinner. I settled on a dish we hadn't made together in decades...egg foo yung...which takes time. (It was delicious, by the way.) Cleanup, letting the dogs out again, and then bedtime kept me from actually using any of the threads last night, so I'll be doing just that today. You know the drill. After coffee...

Tuesdays With Tag - Anticipation...

Brynwood Needleworks - Taggart

Hi, Everybody!
I woke up Monday mornin' thinkin' that this week was gonna be awesome. You know, filled with chasin' the cat; barkin' my fool head off at the wind or any other minute noise; and other stuff like that. Instead, I find out I have an appointment.
Compassionate Care Animal Clinic - Elkhart Lake, WI
I don't even know why she told me. It just means I have to worry about it until it's over. Nooooo. I have to go to the vet for my annual checkup. Great.

Compassionate Care Animal Clinic - Dr. Prellwitz & Winnie

On a good note, I'll get to see Dr. John. I really like him - even though I'm used to Dr. Stephanie and the ladies at Animal Medical Clinic in Florida. He takes really good care of me (and Bella and Carly, too!).
What's botherin' me is I know I'm gonna get at least one shot. Mom got a reminder sayin' I'm due for my rabies shot, and of course, she had to tell me. So, now I get to think about that until after I get it. I just hope there's a treat in it for me when it's all over. Yeah. I can't wait until it's all over.

I'll see you again in seven. 'til then...
"Corgi On, Corgi Strong!"
