Wish I was there...

Grace is on her senior trip and is hanging out with my favorite character!

I'm so glad she's having fun!

Would you be happy...


If you came home from the groomer looking like this?  When we took Daisy a few weeks ago, she didn't seem very happy!  I thought she looked pretty cute though.  Still love her eyes, it amazes me that one can be ice blue and the other, dark brown!



I've begun quilting my Kansas Troubles block of the month.  So far I'm just stabilizing it because I can't decide how to quilt it.  Any suggestions?


 Another new project is in the works...a wool Christmas table mat from Primitive Gatherings.  I've fused everything down, now need to do the buttonhole stitch along the edges of the appliques.  This WILL be done before Christmas...pictures soon!  Oh...and I've started a crocheted afghan for my youngest to take to college.  Can you believe she doesn't want a quilt?!?  She's leaving for her senior trip to Disney World on Wednesday morning.  With the Boss in Denmark/Italy this week, I think I'll have a little bit of sewing time in the next few days...can't wait!

Sock Fail


I sat down to have a cup of tea and work on my Tidepool Socks.  I've been totally uninterested in them, they just weren't knitting up into something I liked. I fought it hard, I tried to like them, really I did, but there was just something about them. So now they look like this:


Yep, I did it again.  Back in December I ripped out a sock I had started for the boss...right about the time I got to the heel flap, which is where I was on this one.  Now I'm wondering if I'll ever finish a pair of socks...or even one sock!

Daisy was right, a walk was exactly what I needed before my class tonight. Smart pup!
