Earl Grey Update and Erin's Secret Project!

Hey everyone!

So old Earl is just about finished, finally! I was afraid for a little while that the Cross-Stitched Donkey's Aid Society was going to come take him away from me for neglect, but thankfully they didn't, and he's looking okay. He still needs some hooves and eyes, and the flower needs stems, but for the most part, he's done! Oh, and there's the issue of the the minor surgery I need to perform because of that third ear he seems to have. I guess I got chatting and wasn't paying enough attention to what I was doing. Poor Earl.

As for Erin's secret project, it's no longer a secret. She's seen it, but it still isn't quite finished. This past winter she was obsessed with the olympics, big time, and was annoyed because she was looking everywhere for olympic clothes and everyone was sold out. So I stitched her a little olympic pattern and am going to make it into a little pillow. I don't know how to do that yet, which is why it's still not finished. I'll soon try to figure that out so that the next time I see her she can finally keep it. I'm really happy with how this turned out. It originally was set inside the outline of a donkey, but I took it out and rearranged it a little differently. Caitlyn is working on her own's the perfect size of a project for a 10 year old, and she's keeping her's inside the donkey!

Well, that's all for now....have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Very nice pieces! The Olympics one is very cute!!

  2. Love Earl!! And your Olympic piece is great!

  3. Oh Jodie, Earl is wonderful. A friend of mine has stitched this one several times over to make pillows and each one has a different personality with a different colour. Kinda like a horse of a different colour. What a fun stitch.
    Be always in stitches.
