Remember this? It's the wall hanging that my friends Jeanette, Kathy and I all bought at the same time and decided to work on them together. It's gotten more blog time that anything else I have ever done and it's finally finished so I can move on to posting other things.
I am really pleased with the way it turned out.
This has nothing to to the the wall hanging, I just thought she was so stinkin' cute I had to show somebody. She sleeps like this quite often.
Sometimes I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels and not getting much done so I have to make something small to get a sense of accomplishment. This little fabric postcard is going to a friend as a little thank you card.
For all you guys that have been following my blog for awhile, you may remember the post "You can't keep a good dog down". In case you don't you can read about it here.
Well, its months later and she still hasn't given up hope.
I've been asked why I just don't let her go up there so in case you are wondering too here are the reasons. #1 She is still a puppy and loves to destroy things, #2 It's the one place the cats can feel safe, #3 She loves to dig in the litter box and eat the tasty morsels if she can find any, and lastly , she seems to think it's OK to peddle on the carpet in our bedroom. If only she would put all that effort and energy into doing useful things.
I received gifts from two of my friends this week and I really don't know what I did to deserve them. The first one is from my friends Susan, between her and her husband, they are two of the most creative and talented people I know. She came to pick up a table topper that she will be quilting for me and handed me this marvelous wooden box.
Her husband had made one as part of a gift at a Christmas party for one of the small quilting groups I'm in. We played a game and someone else ended up with the fabulous hand made box, but I was coveting it like none other. I'm not sure what she did to get her hubby to make another one and I was just so thrilled to get it I didn't asked any questions.
The second gift is from my neighbor and friend Gert.
She said her daughter made them for me, again I don't know why but aren't they cool? They are potholders and you can put your hand inside the pocket when you use them. How cool is that?
I've been knitting scarves like crazy. I made one for myself a while back, then one for my daughter. Just before Christmas I received an order for one and when I went to buy the yarn it was on sale, so I bought a bunch and have been knitting ever since. I am going to put a couple in my etsy shop and if they don't sell, well, I guess they will be gifts next Christmas.
