Hi Fellow Stitchers!
Whittaker met with his 'new trainer' yesterday with stellar results ... she liked him .. he liked her ..and wasn't freaked out at all at being in a strange building with new smells. And he would like to show you (via this picture) that he has already learned to come when called and immediately go into a sit! Whadda Good Boy! So far, the COME/SIT is working as long as he isn't barking at something, trying to catch a cricket or other small bug, or teasing the cat. Working on it ... we have lots of homework to do between now and the 18th when we meet with the trainer again though.
And this morning, we got the results of his DNA test back (Wisdom 3.0 Panel Breed Identification from Amazon) and ...... drum roll please .......
he is 50% German Shepherd Dog and 50% Great Pyrenees ... DNA results goes back 3 generations. That confirms what we had been thinking. We thought we could see GSD in him, but the "livestock guardian dog' was strong in him, with the inattentiveness to our calling him and the fierce barking .. that's the Pyrenees for sure .. warning us about the leaf ninjas', 'zombie squirrels', and 'unknown noises that he is certain will try to kill us all'! LOL
With that, it's time to show you the newest that have been released this week:.
we order weekly from Hoffman, Yarn Tree and Wichet will be glad to get you what you see!

From DMC ... (no ship date given to us yet) Etoile Floss Collector's Tin
A Collector's Tin with all 35 colors of the NEW Etoile Floss, one skein each. Also included are Two Free Charts. This six strand floss with a twinkle effect adds a beautiful, subtle sparkle to your needlework. Same number of strands and thickness as regular DMC floss; coordinate seamlessly with the DMC flosses and use the same color numbers (for example, regular DMC #816 would be DMC Etoile floss #C816); 73% cotton/27% polyamide.
**We will also offer all 35 skeins in an organza bag (the same as we did with the previous 35 new DMC floss skeins) ... no free charts will be available this way, but the shipping cost will be much less than the Collector's Tin was/would be). Choices! You get Choices!!!

Make sure you don't end up like this poor stitcher .... she forgot to reserve her spot and now, all of her friends are stitching at a retreat and she's left all to her lonesome at home, missing all the stitching fun!
From Deb's Needle:
DEEP SIGH ... still sloughing my way through Songbird's Garden Series, The - Merry & Bright ... I really love this one and especially how it's coming along, but am getting really tired of how long this has been going on. Not the project's fault .. all mine (and doggy distractions from Whit) .. and yesterday I discovered I'd put several 'leaves' in totally the wrong place .. again. I'll be exceedingly happy when that 'frog' leaves my house and this one is done and I can begin something else!
From LIZZIE KATE ...
Moon Over Blackbird FREEBIE!
LK has included a few options (2 border choices) so you can personalize your fall stitchery. Choose your favorite, or stitch it several times with different choices and share the autumn goodness with those you love.
OK .. that's pretty much it. Please Note: There will NOT be a Newsletter Update this next Friday .. as I'll be at our A Stitchalot Weekend Retreat at the hotel. We have 58 attending and I won't have time to sit in a corner somewhere and tap tap tap away on my laptop for several hours. So I'm sorry, but you'll have to wait for your next update on October 19th. I know you can be patient ... so until that next Friday night newsletter update ......
