Fall Sale

Just a quick note to let you know that I am having a sale at my Etsy shop. I have some gorgeous new fabrics I am going to use to make some Fall bags. New shape and style too. But I need to clean up some inventory to make room for the new. Check it out and tell your friends.

Happy Belated Birthday Mom!

Better late than never! I simply love the way this bag came out. I was not sure how it would work out, I have never put a zipper in a large sized bag. But it worked perfectly. My daughter modeled for me and you can see it is just adorable. I think you will really enjoy the bag, Mom. Happy Belated Birthday!

What a Mess!

See that tangled mess? Well, that is after working on untangling it for an hour when I thought to take a photo. It is 4 balls of yarn and what a mess!

Every morning the neighbor's dog, Koda, comes over to play with Max for about an hour. Well, this day, Max went up to Koda's because our lawn had just been fertilized. I brought my socks to knit while I supervised the dogs. Not that they really need it, but this is new territory for Max, so I didn't want him getting into any trouble.

Well, Max did grab something he probably should not have, so I put my knitting down and went to retrieve said item. When I turned my horror.....Koda had my project in his mouth.

Picture this. Very happy dog looking at me with mischief in his eyes. I move to approach him and he excitedly runs away. He stops, looks at me and again runs away. No matter how I screech STOP, he is having way too much fun to listen.

Now, picture this, Koda has run around the playhouse, around the sand box, around the swing set, around the deck furniture, up the hill, around and around again. Imagine a gigantic spider web. Then Koda finally drops the knitting and steps on it. Here is the good news, the wooden US1 needles were jammed into the ground, but did not break!

Humor me for just one more moment. Now I am running around trying desperately to gather all the yarn (almost 4 entire balls worth) while both dogs think playing in the web of yarn is the best playdate ever!

The socks are still being knit. They are riddled with dog hairs and sand.

I hope you enjoyed my story. I am able to laugh about it now, but it did take me a day or two to see the humor in it.
