It's done!!!!! It's even initialed and dated.
I spent the drive to the beach sewing and finished it up on Monday. I am so relieved to be able to take this off my "to be finished" list.
I've been trying to decide what to do with this project and I have decided that I am going to have it framed and give it to our veterinarian as a thank you for giving us our newest family member, Charlotte. If I haven't shared our awesome, royal acquisition, I give you Princess Charlotte:
Her parents were the number one (dad in Australia and mom in the United States) show border collies and she was the pick of the litter. She belonged to Kathy's mom until last year, when she passed away from cancer. Kathy had been looking for the perfect home for her and decided we were it. I can't even begin to tell you how much I have bonded with this dog and how much I miss her while we are here at the beach. We are lucky that Kathy wouldn't allow us to leave her in any hands but her own while we are gone but I cannot wait to get back on Saturday and go pick her up. She has become a part of my heart. And I used to be a cat person...
Working on another finish (should wrap it up sometime today as it is pretty hot even on the beach and I prefer to go down in the evenings).
I hope you all had a wonderful IHSW and are staying cool. I see that we are relatively cool compared to most of the rest of the country, so I am grateful for that and air conditioning in beach houses!
