belts belts belts

That's what I've been doing lately, belts (needlepoint belts that is). I was commissioned to stitch 2 belts for someone who could not get motivated to finish them. Sign me up!!!! I stitched them both in 2 weeks, fun and fast. One Princeton University motif belt delieverd, waiting on the second belt to come back from the finisher. What's great about these belts is that they can be personalized ~ monogram , graduation year and this young man plays on the university lacrosse team. The belt below has kind of a sad story.... My moms friend, Jenny, stitched the belt for her niece and when she sent it to the finisher, it was lost in the mail. That's right....never seen again. I can honestly say, this is the first time that has happened. Bummer, but what can you do? In an effort to get the belt stitched quickly, I volunteered to stitch the background (sorry about the photo, it's kind of blurry).
I started this belt this am, with my little friend watching. This is Pebbles routine~~ first we potty, followed by breakfast, then sit on the back of mommy's chair and watch her stitch, while keeping an eye on the front yard. An after breakfast nap is next. I told you she is a dog not a cat, right???

The international flag belt(on the tray) is for a new friend of mine that did me a really big favor......

That is a very neat gift to give someone -- a personalized belt. I wish I had your patience.

Thank you for indulging me with another picture of Pebbles! ;)

I like the sounds of your morning routine. Sounds very relaxing.

The belt turned out really nicely. I can't wait to see the flag belt finished.

Are those horses...jumping on the belt that got lost in the mail? If so, I have got to learn to needlepoint!
P.S. I just love Pebbles!
