Maddy's Off and Running!

Here is the beginning of the portrait of Maddy. I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but here goes! I am following a coloured photo I took of Maddy last winter on the deck looking cute as a button.

The weather has been up and down, some days snow and cold, the next, rain and melting snow. Well, I guess that's winter in the North Atlantic.

Hard to believe that Christmas is less than one month away. The stores are starting to be so crowded and almost impossible. Imagine, in one month, it will be all over, except the bills!

I am not a "bah humbug person" but I hate how commercial Christmas has become. I guess it is up to we, the people, to make it less commercial and more about enjoying time with friends and family.

    Here in Ohio, Christmas begins BEFORE Halloween!!! I think if I worked retail, I would hate Christmas music.
    Please keep us posted on Maddy's progress.
    Hugs :)

  2. Hi Julie,
    I know you posted this quite a while ago and somehow my commenting has gotten waaaaaaay behind! Hope Christmas hasn't gotten too out of control for you! I love your Maddy rug and hope you are making some good progress on it! I've been thinking I should do one of our Smokey and Max but too many other things keep getting in the way!!
    Hope all is well with you and P and Maddy!
