Busy as proverbial bees
Sorry for the size of this picture. I had to "borrow" it from the shelter website because any time I'm with her I have one hand on a leash and the other petting her below the right ear. Anyway..............Here is Kona! The dog fairy came through!! and what a great job she did. Kona is a 3 year old black lab mixed with some other things........ She is energetic, friendly, energetic, housebroken (99.99% of the time as she proved to me tonight) energetic, smart, energetic, partially trained, and did I mention she is energetic? We were pretty used to an older very calm easy going boy. Kona is keeping things lively for us! She just may be the best diet aid ever!
Meanwhile I am trying to work on a few things, in between dog walks and what I call "Lab work" (pee breaks) ahem, sorry, I digress easily! Here are some of my grocery bags. I've made about 14 of these babies so far and they are soooooooooo handy! The one on the far left has a basket in the bottom for my traveling projects, currently Yo Yo's. I'm planning to make some for my older daughters for their own shopping and hauling about. They roll up nicely and fit in the front of the car/van/truck for quick grocery runs. I get nice comments when the bag person at the grocery store is a woman too!
And here is the progress with my needle felting. I'm working on a flower pin. I'm going to attempt to work up to a hibiscus. Did you read that Flori?? Anyway, I'm tyring to get a few things made as shop samples for one of the local quilt shops that has a HUGE inventory of wool fabric. The owner talked to me about possibly teaching a class this fall. Me! Can you imagine that????
