Stitching ABC #48

Dog-sitting success! My sister's family ably succeeded in looking after Clarence for the weekend. They said they had fun, and Clarence was tired at the end of it so I think he enjoyed himself too! Best thing about it is that we don't have to worry about him now when we're away as we know they will look after him just like we do - so that is a big relief!

It's funny - the kids were so excited to have him, but terrified of him when he went near them! Hopefully when he goes back in a few weeks time, they will get used to him and overcome their fears. They had to be told that saying 'sit' and running away does not encourage Clarence to actually sit and wait - running means playtime! I'm sure they'll work it out when they look after him for a bit longer next time.

Over the weekend, I got a fair amount done on the Stitching ABC - it just seemed to come together quite quickly so now I only have a couple more blocks to do. 

E for Embroidery hoop and F for French knot are done, and A for Applique is almost done too! That just leaves B and C to go! Woo hoo!
Happy Stitching,


  1. Your ABC of stitching is looking great!

  2. Almost done! A finish is looming on the horizon!

  4. So glad the weekend worked out well with Clarence and the kids :-) Your stitching is looking wonderful. Yay for an almost finish!
