Two Happy Dances :)

This week is going fantastic!! And not even speaking about the Australian Open, which makes me always happy to watch....

Emma Miles is finished!!!


Emma Miles
Designer: The Scarlet Letter
Fabric: 36ct Vintage Cornsilk by Lakeside Linens
Threads: AVAS silks
 
The second Happy Dance is because I have a brand new car - a Hyundai I30 Elite.  So very very happy about that too. Gotta love that husband of mine :)



And because I think about safety a bit more, Lucy got a safe seat too and wears a harness that gets attached to her seat. She loves the new seat. Added plus, car keep cleaner because SOMEONE likes to run through puddles and mud - and that isn't me.

O, wat is je Emma mooi geworden!
En wat ben je verwend, wat een prachtige auto heb je nu.
Wat goed om je hond zo mee te nemen in de auto, ik ken deze zitjes niet voor honden. Fantastisch!

Fijn weekend en lieve groetjes, Evelyne

Your sampler is so pretty! Love the satin stitches on the border. Great new car too! I've wondered about the dog seats! I hate it when mine wants to sit on my lap!

Congrats toons on a gorgeous finish, Gabi! It is so pretty, I look forward to seeing how you frame it! Congrats on the new car, too! I think Sophie and Gracie would love that booster seat rather than their kennel. Will have to check them out.

Meg said...

Hello

I love the doggie seat what a fab idea. Your DH is such a sweetie to get you that great looking car.

Emma is AMAZING, hang her with pride.

Claudette497 said...

Marie said...

Congrats on the completion of Emma Miles, it is beautiful!

Your car is awesome and I love that doggy car seat...I wonder if my yorkie would sit nicely in that. It would be far safer than having her bounce all over my car. :D

Mary said...

Nice finish! Emma is so pretty! Congrats!

Jean said...

Beautiful Finish, Emma is lovely. The doggie seat is cute

Tatkis said...

Wow, your finished sampler is fantastic!
Congratulations with your new car, it looks lovely!

Suzanne said...

Congratulations on finishing Emma, she's beautiful! Love the new car and the special seat for Lucy is a neat idea.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Congrats on the Happy Dance!
Love your doggy seat too. I can't understand why children have to be strapped in and animals don't. They can be injured just as easily and can be a big distraction if they're bouncing around.

Jeanne said...

Congratulations Gabi!! Sarah Miles is gorgeous! I was able to see a model of this sampler at my local cross stitch shop and I just love that band of holly across the middle. Great job!

Your doggie is so cute in his little basket. Hope you both enjoy the new car!

Your new RED car looks smart! The car I got a year ago is red!

Stitch Wizard said...

Emma Miles is just beautiful!! Congratulations on a really lovely finish!!! I love your new car and your little dog too!!

Aussie Stitcher said...

Your finish looks wonderful, and Lucy looks very comfortable in your new car.

Brigitte said...

Emma Miles sieht einfach toll aus! Es kommt mir vor als hätte ich diesen Sampler nicht entdeckt, als ich meine Vorlage für Nicola's SL Jahr ausgesucht habe - sonst hätte ich Emma Miles sicher mitbestellt, schon allein wegen der schönen Vögel.
