My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening Everyone!

Well today we come to the end of July and the conclusion of the Just One July SAL hosted by Justine.

I worked on Dinosaurs all month and accomplished quite a bit for me especially with all I had going on in July. Helping my daughter find and purchase a home for us, moving little things over to the new place, shopping for appliances, breaking my last "good" pair of glasses, the loss of Pest our beloved dog and everyday life...

This is how it looked on July 1st

and here it is now

Artist - Stephen Michael Gardner 
Designer - Flumpkins X Stitchers
Progress as of 07/31/16

I plan on keeping it out to finish that section before I move on to something else.
Then I need to get back to Dreamcatchers so I can get that sent off to my brother.

I would like to take a minute to say THANKS to Justine for hosting this SAL and
I do hope that she will do it again because Dinosaurs! needs a lot more stitches!

One more thing!!
This weekend was Empty The Shelter at our local Animal Control so we went to browse and see what they had available! Well...we found one we LOVED and in the same cage was another who was also calling our names and wanting to go home with us so instead of taking home a new member of the family we took home two!

What a wonderful thing for you to do - to rescue two beautiful dogs. They do look adorable.

I do love your Dinosaurs! I can't believe July is over already.

Excellent progress on Dinosaurs - you put JOJ to good use.

What delightful additions to the family! I'm so glad you get rescue/shelter pets and these look like real loves.

Wonderful progress Faith! You had a really great month's stitching.
It seems these month-long SALs are quite popular so stay tuned for Solo September! I already have my project picked out.


Your new additions look like they settled into your car right away for the ride home!
