how to be happy

This illustration by Susan Branch is one of my favs :-)




There are a few things I could add to this list, but it's a good start ;-)
(especially the naps, lol)

Meanwhile, another Shepherd's Bush finish, yippee!!




this one is called Quaker Heart. A lot of fun to stitch, and I'm on a roll with SB again so stay tuned for another finish soon!



What do you think about these boys? Here they were fighting for lap space and Muttley is the winner as you can see, that's Astro under his foot....they were sleeping like this on Easter Sunday...

Quaker Heart looks wonderful...great finish!!

Naps definitely earn a place on the list of Happiness! While the Quaker Heart is beautiful...I also have to say it does my heart good to hear that dog "siblings" are just as bad when it come to fighting for attention as human siblings. Somedays it is hard on the moms...that is when we need to take that nap!
Take Care!

Great to-do list, as long as we can add "Take time to stitch" to it.
