I must be better.  Completely over my pneumonia.  I've been looking.  Looking for something more.  I've got 4 quilts all set to baste/quilt/finish.  I've got my Snow Days stitchery block 9 to work on.  Several quilts to make without stepping out of the house to buy fabric.  

Yet.  I am restless.  Looking for something different.  Not to replace what I'm doing now.  Just something to fill this little void...this one right here.  I've been looking and  Looking at files I've had for a long while.  Wanting something else to stitch.  My mind seems to be working overtime.  I need to fulfill these errant creative let these creative juices flow freely.  

So, I made a start at something.  

Tag, You're It! Creations.  Pieces of Tag.  Well, not really Tag...just a brown dog.   Small.Simple.Fast...Perfect!  And, not always the brown dog...I've got other colors of floss.  And, more a few other breeds, too.  

Why 'Tag, You're It!??  Because that is Tag's AKC registered name.  And, I do love the brown boy.  Because he is 'it'.  Actually, he's all that.  And more.  Really.  {grin}  Sorry...I get a bit carried away sometimes.  

I made this little design into a pillow to hang on my cubicle wall at work.  It measures ~4.5 x 6 inches and is entitled, "Stay"...the first in a series of 4.

So, what do you think?

What a fun piece with tag. Our pets are wonderful to get our creative thinking, going. Now if I can just get my energy back, lol.

I just love the embroidered dog you posted. It is so cute. I was looking at the books you posted that you had read and I think I have read about 1/2 of them too. I will write down some of the authors I didn't recognize and try and get some of the books.

I like the name too.

Super name for a new business! Plus, you can plainly see that Tag is "all that". I actually tried to click on the name thinking it would take me to some patterns...perhaps that's the next step! I think you're on to something!
