The Four

and I finished Winter Dog this morning. So here are the four seasonal critters from Barbara Ana – each runs about 1200 stitches.

Meet Winter Dog

Autumn Cat

Summer Dog

and Spring Cat

They might just fit in the five in hoops that I have on hand. If not, 6 inch hoops for sure. I am speaking of the fake wooden ones that look like picture frames. Sooner or later something will wind up on the walls.

Now to find the missing color of beads so that I can finish Miss Spider…

Oh – no eye pain or blurry vision to day but I am being compulsive about eye drops…

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

    Love the cats! Assume you are far enough north that the worst of the storm is not causing too many issues for you?
