Look at the precious In-the-Hoop surprise I got today! Charlie, the newest addition to Pickle Pie Designs thinks I spend too much time on my embroidery machine so he tried to put a stop to it. (Nice try, Charlie!) Charlie came home with us a couple of weeks ago from the local animal shelter. He was a gift to me from my beloved for my big 4-0 birthday! Charlie likes lounging, pouncing on toes, and, apparently, embroidery.
