Scottie Dog Embroidery Set #2

I've been working on two more Scottie Dog embroideries.
Free vintage patterns from French Knots

Aren't these cute?
And we don't even own a dog.
For now I'm content with needle and thread.
I've been collecting vintage animal embroidery patterns to be placed in a baby quilt.

Handwork is so therapeutic.
I've especially enjoyed working on small embroidery pieces as we've traveled on road trips.
I know a lot of people can't stitch as they ride in a car, but I find it relaxing.

Fun to mix it up with a few little Lazy Daisy stitches and French Knots.

Hi Nedra,
I found you at Julia's Place, when I was checking out everyone on her blog list. You've just been added to my favorites list - I love your blog! And I just adore those scottie dogs. You don't have to have a dog to like those little guys - I think everyone does!

I love your blocks. I saw a 1930's repro fabric that had great big Scottie dogs on it that I wish I would have bought - it would have made a great backing!

Absolutely adorable! Yeah, I can't work in the car anymore. I suddenly started getting carsick about 7 years ago. Never had problems the 28 years before that! (go figure)
