Dogs -- Yesterday we took pictures of Cain and Abel. They should be full grown now since they will be 2 years old in August. They are Sharpei/Lab mixes. Cain is our blond Sharbador. He is my 70 pound lap dog. Abel is our Labrapei, he is larger than Cain and more like a lab. He fetches and is obsessed with birds. They are brothers from the same litter.

I have been doing a lot of stitching lately and finishing some very old UFOs. This includes a Bent Creek counting book started when my children where young enough to be interested in one:

I also finished a counted needlepoint design that I started as a present for my father. Water is Life has waves in it, perfect for a man who studies turbulent flow patterns.

I worked on some newer patterns too. I finished an Easter design -- Candy is Dandy by Val's Stitching Stuff. The bunny looks so happy in the design that he makes me smile to look at him.
Although there has been lots of stitching, there has not been as much reading going on. I finished The Rings of Saturn by Sebold and listened to The Meaning of Night by Michael Cox all the way through.
