I just realized that it is “National Dog Day“! In honor of this special day I thought I better chart out a stitch that reminds me of “Dog Prints” for all of the dog lovers out there! I may not currently have my own dog but I am going to show a couple of photos of my Surrogate dogs thanks to Judy Wald McConnell!
So without further ado, here is today’s Paw Prints Darning pattern. Remember to stitch this as a darning pattern from top to bottom.
Here is the stitched sample, stitched with one strand of Petite Very Velvet.
As you can see I had been trialling putting in a paw pad below the stitch, see the stitch on the far left picture. You could do this but would have to change the spacing in the chart. I opted for the plain paw print and think it would make a fabulous background.
Now here are my surrogate puppies!
Of course no post would be complete without a cat story and they do have four paws as well
So, Sir Tango had not been eating dinner very well the last two nights, which is highly unusual! Also, the girls kibble bowl which is behind a gate was going down rather quickly! Today I caught him red handed eating the kibble on the stairs behind the gate!!! He had made a bigger hole in the gate to squeeze through and has been having snacks whenever I am not around, little rascal! Gate has now been returned to its normal size and I will be monitoring more closely
So folks, that’s all for today enjoy putting in a stitch or two for me!
