E-gads! It's getting to the point where soon I'll have to go to the park and take pictures to show you, I'm afraid. I'm running out of projects. Lately, I really don't feel like doing much and I don't know why. I should clean my house, groom poor Toby, plan nice yummy meals for suppers, clean up all the bags of scraps and junk I have sitting around here, clean out some closets, plus tons of other things I can't think of at the moment! I need some ambition, is what I need! Or a fire! LOL E-gads, I hope I didn't jinx myself there....that would be terrible!
I did finish the Halloween quilt that I was going to give my daughter for Christmas though:
I gave it to her already. I am such a sucker for keeping secrets and I thought why shouldn't she enjoy it for this year too? So now, I'll have to come up with something else for Christmas..........
I did work on my ornaments for the Trim a Tree handmade ornament swap though. First I made an owl:
And a bear:
And I started making some Christmas mice too. This was my prototype:
He is really ugly compared to the new ones which I will show you next time. I could make them all day actually. I was having such fun with the hand work. It's been an age since I've done that kind of thing and I so enjoyed it......BUT, I have obligations. SO..... today I will partake of the ladies again. I have 3 to make and I MUST get myself going on them. The drawings are done, the fabric is pulled so wish me luck.
In the meantime, I must give you a smile. After a week or so of rain a few weeks back, and having one drowned rat of a dog each time Toby came in after doing his business outside, I decided to buy him a raincoat. Problem is that once I put it on him, he stood like a statue for a full 10 minutes until I took it off. The only, and I mean THE ONLY thing he moved the entire time were his eyes. I wish you could have been here. My hubby and I had the laugh of the year! Poor baby!
