My new best friend! and WIPocolypse (Aug 2)

My stitching mojo is back!  Thankfully because I seem to be in a funny place moodwise (probably because I have a big MRI scan next week) so it is  nice to sit and lose myself in the rhythmic inning and outing of stitching and watching a piece of art grow and grow.  

My youngest is determined to go to school next year so we have been busy falling into a school-like syllabus so he will be prepared.  I am a little sad that he feels he has to go just in case cancer comes back, but he seems to be thriving in our new fund formality and he really does rock at fractions!  And an added bonus is that as he works, I can stitch!  So here is my WIPopcolypse update so far.  It is growing and that is all anyone can ask for!

Meet Jamie, my new best friend.  I have him on loan for 6 months, meat for manners.  His owner is a lovely lady who has given me the confidence to do this.  I was very nervous but now I am just really excited.  Jamie is lovely and comes to me whenever I call his name.

He is a bit of a poser: as soon as he heard the camera he looked up.  'Say Hay' lol.

I am putting Citronella on him so try and keep the pesky biting bugs from biting him.  It works!  They bit me instead!

Isn't he lovely?

I will update the post later with my WIPopocalypse...Thank you Maggee for agreeing to the HUGE xmas exchange!  I am really excited about it (see previous post) and don't forget to enter my giveaway!!!  I draw the winners soon....(two posts back but I have labelled it so just click on the side bar!)
