The embroidery continues. I am enjoying having these squares to work on. I have been enhancing the western squares with some hand work.

I had forgotten how relaxing it is to do handwork. Before I had children I always used to have something going whether it was cross stitch, needlepoint, hemming a dress or sewing on buttons I always had something to do with my hands. Now I am revisiting this and finding it is as good as it used to be and in many ways much better. As I work on these squares I have decided that I will hand quilt this piece.

I would also like to thank everyone for the kind words regarding Bronx's graduation to a Guide Dog. I found out he will be training with his new partner in his home so if I want to see him before he goes to Arizona for training I need to go to the Guide Dog Campus where he has been training since November. So Monday I am going to go to Boring, Oregon and spend a few hours with Bronx to say Good By and Good Luck.
