Michelle Griggs is maybe 'new to you' but she has been around for a loooong time!

COPIED from THE HOUSE OF STITCHES Newsletter:
If you see a design that you like; buy it! Buy it NOW!! We can never be sure how long something will be in print. And, most designers do not let us know when they discontinue a design. We find out the hard way when we try to order it for you. We are getting calls and emails nearly every day from people who are looking for charts that have gone out of print. I hate it when we are not able to get you the projects that you want! So, this is not a shameless sales ploy; it is an earnest attempt for you to be able to obtain the charts that you need.
Today is my dog Whittaker's (Whit's) GOTCHA DAY! Yup, 1 year ago today we picked him up from the Big Fluffy Dog Rescue in Indiana and brought him home. He's still a handful, but we can see where this big boy and is growing into learning how to be a 'dog' and get/give love.
He's JUST learned how to DO "puppy dog eyes" to get what he wants and has that 'trick' down pretty pat! LOL The barking we will have to live with, but having that DNA test done early on and learning his breed makeup (50% Great Pyrenees/50% German Shepherd Dog) has really helped us to understand his makeup traits and how to deal with stuff he does. No idea what happened to him in his first 2 years, but now at 3 1/2 years old, he has learned a lot, is insanely smart, and .... we'll keep him! Whit says WOOF .... Ari says Big Woof (at least they get along as big CAT sister and little dog brother)
OK .. I think that's pretty much it. Got to go stack wood and then ... maybe stitch .. maybe read ... who knows. So, until next Sunday and your update ...... Stitch Happy!!
