New Start - Dog House Sampler, LHN

Linda and I started a new Stitch-Along last night of the Dog House Sampler from Little House Needleworks. I bought this chart from Tricia, and Linda already had it, so we decided to stitch it together on Wednesdays!


I haven't stitched a sampler yet, with ABCs.  This one caught my eye because it has words mixed in with the alphabet (Bark, Fetch, Leash, Paws, Woof).  I am stitching it on 14ct Fiddlers cloth.  I am getting tired of this zebra stripe Q-Snap cover.  I only have 2 of the 8x8 size and I'm using the other one on the Violets Teacup. It's time to order more from Christine's Q-Snap Huggies!

Here is my inspiration for the Dog House Sampler!  His name is Teddy.  My daughter picked him at the animal shelter because he was the biggest dog they had.  He was a year old in this pic and weighs 100 pounds.  They told us he is a Yellow Labrador, but I think he has some Mastiff mixed in there too.  He has amazing yellow eyes.  The big baby sleeps at my feet under my desk all day and is snoring there right now!

Have you noticed that most cross stitchers have cats?  I wonder why dog charts aren't as popular as cat charts. On the HAED website, there are 201 cat charts, but only 6 dog charts!  What a difference!
