Stitching and Cooking Today

Here's the LHN design Be True from William Shakespeare. Love this. I am actually tweaking the colors a bit to fit my decor for the room I'm putting it in. I decided to frame with the mahogany frame; therefore instead of white border, I'm using DMC 221. I'm thinking about adding wooden heart buttons I have in my stash instead of stitching hearts.

Oh, lookie here! This is Ren tonight. He's eating his supper. Center-cut ham, oven-baked sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar, cinnamon and 2 green beans. He really gets into it. He turns his little legs inward as he eats. He can't see or smell or hear much anymore so we have to put him right up to his plate and then Wham.......there he goes!

The country eggs, double-yoked made a good cake. Or at least the Bodyguard likes it alot. But as a confirmed bachelor of 44 years when we got married..........he likes everything I cook! LOL

Ok, I've been a little chatty tonight so back to stitching........and cleaning up this red dye mess!


  1. Hey this is BG and that was the best cake ever. I'm still amazed when she bakes. Never going to lose any weight on me folks.

  2. That cakes looks like DMC 221! What a sweet doggie!

  3. Oh my gosh! It does look like DMC221! Boy, I've had red on my mind today! LOL

  4. The cake looks yummy. And I'm working on the same LHN piece although I started in the bottom right (why I did that I don't know). This is my carry around project so I don't get much time to work on it! You'll be done before me.
