Dance By the Light of the Moon

This picture is from the Silver Needle website. I ordered this project awhile back because this is our yard typically at night on some occasions. Our 2 Black labs will sleep all day ~~~play and bark all night. I've been awake now since 4am due to one of their escapages and can't go back to sleep. This time I just got up and went straight to the perculator and made me some coffee to stay up and read. I'm not sure if Raven and Ruby are "dancing by the light of the moon" but they sure sound like it. Thomas may be at the root of this issue sometimes as he does like to tease and play cat and mouse game with them.
Ren is a whole other issue. He has his own little schedule and nothing wakes him up at night. He likes to sleep late in fact. We have to get him up on days we work to go out before we leave and sometimes he is a little grumpy. When he comes back in , he wraps himself in his blanket like a turban, just his head hanging out.......and back to sleep. He comes alive mostly when I cook dinner and will become quite theatrical until his plate is fixed!
Well, here's hoping that you are getting some good sleep!


  1. Hi Jennifer,

    I saw your comment on my blog - I actually have Quaker Christmas. I've been stitching it for about a year now (very slow going). :) Thank you for your offer though! Love the pattern you ordered by the way - I need to check out the rest of your blog! :)

  2. Sounds like your dogs have quite a night life! When I have nights like you've just had (not so often lately), I give up and find a book. Sometimes I can get sleepy enough to snooze again ... about ten minutes before the alarm goes off!

    Love the project you ordered.

  3. I should have put the designer on this one. Its by Primitive Traditions and they recommend 40 ct but honestly I haven't stitched any 40 count yet. I have looked at some 40 count linen but it intimidates me a little because its so small.
    I have had a time trying to find the recommended linen, called Silver Fir, but it looks like a lovely blue color. LNS did not have it when I checked last.

  4. I love that pattern. Have to put it on my wish list. So many great ones and so little time. :)
