For Mollie


I heard through the grapevine that Mollie (not Molly) felt all left out after her sister Paddy (not Patti or Patty) recently made it on my blog. Little did Molly know I had pictures of both of the girlie dogs! I look forward to the enthusiastic greeting I'll get from the girls later this week when I go to visit with Ann and Dan!

Well, we survived the snow storm! Looking at the radar, it seems we're pretty much done, we may get the odd light dusting of snow. Todd is getting ready to go out and clear our driveway. Once its done I'll go out and get pictures. We got A LOT of snow... how much I don't know I haven't heard the official word yet but according to Christin who I've been chatting with on MSN our total from Friday afternoon until now is 51cm! That's half of a meter/yard stick folks! Don't forget we got about 20 earlier in the week!

Being stuck in the house I stitched most of the day yesterday.... except for my ahem, nap. I'm making a good start on model #5. As for Model #4 I've asked the magazine to get in contact with the designer for a substitute for the missing thread. The shop that sent me the supplies has it on order, but will it arrive in time? Who knows? The shop suggested that the ombre was a gold to a coppery gold and suggested blending 918 and a gold blending filament. I pulled them out and e-mailed my contact at the magazine and said ummmm no this is a rusty red, it won't work with the description she had given me and it just doesn't look right.

Stay tuned for snow pictures....

We had snow flurries! Didn't stick, but it was cool to see the snow flurries.

Both Mollie and Paddy are looking forward to your visit later this week. They will beg and drool to show their love!

Mollie is such a sweetie.
I should mention the 51 cm is at the Ottawa airport.
Hope you get the thread thing sorted out...

Well, the only good thing about the snow is stitching time. You certainly had more than your share. Very cute doggie too.
