Half A Tree And Bad Haircut

 I have 1/2 a little tree with some ornaments I finished this morning. I am typing and pulling hot glue off my fingers.. It is coming off my skin better than my nails that has polish.  lol  Here are some close up shots:
 Blackbird Design. I stitched on green linen in 2009. Finished 2011.
 Blackbird Design. I stitched in 2010. Finished 2011.  Are you seeing a trend here?.. Stitch one year, maybe finished within 2 years.  lol
This next design is by: Daffycat. I stitched this one this year and finished this year!!  WOW!!!  lol  This pattern is available here : http://itsdaffycat.blogspot.com/2011/11/snow-hop.html . She also has some cute reindeer freebies! 
Our cocker spaniel Rebel is in need of a shave bad.. I have left messages with the girl that does her haircuts for us. I have not heard back from her yet. So... you see where this is going? I decided to try it myself with the clippers that hubby uses. Well... Rebel is now sitting with her back up against the heater.. Why?  Her momma cut her real short.. Can you say Scalp? lol  Only on her back.. I didn't finish her haircut.. So, she is embarrassed!  Yes, as in Bare $ssed!
hahaha... I know it is not funny to her.. Hubby asked If I could at least cut her hair from in front of her eyes so that she can see that her backside is Bare..lol  I think she feels the draft back there, that is why she is backed up to the heater... lol  I know... get it fixed! She is 15 years old and has back problems, she can't stand for long periods on time. The pet shops, Petsmart, ect.. Will not cut her because of her age. Something about stress and they don't want to be responsible.. if she goes into a seizure or dies. Our regular girl comes to our house to cut her.. Less stress and I am there with her. Oh please let her answer her phone today!!  My baby looks bad!  I would take a picture, Rebel said NO!...
Till later......

Beautiful ornaments. It takes patience to stick with such detailed projects. Maybe that's why I don't sew. I'm dying to see a picture of your dog. I've been known to mess my daughter bangs. I can totally relate.

It is so hard to find a good groomer around here. I have done the same thing in desperate times to my Schnauzer. He is never happy with me. I get so stressed about leaving him when he shakes like a falling leaf at the groomer. Only have 1/2 and ornament tree too-poor Alabama stitching trees.

Well sweets at least you learned you are a much better stitcher than dog groomer!
Makes me laugh though as I often cut my bangs with my craft scissors and it always looks like crap! hee,hee,hee.
