My WIP







I don't usually post on Wed, but I did last week and I guess I am again today. It is hot and humid again. And I am having a hard time getting myself in gear today. So I am blog hopping, and thought while I am here I might as well post something. Last post I talked about my dog, Buddy, and how we were going to doggy school. Some have asked for a pic of him so I am posting a pic of Buddy. Yes, he is one of my WIPs..he is only 6mo old and weighs 65 pounds already. The vet says he will probably be about 120lbs full grown!! Yikes..so I need to make sure he is well mannered. We have class once a week and I will keep you updated. Last walk he did very well with the heel thing..and sitting is pretty good esp if a treat is involved...down seems to be a challenge for him..waiting is very good, for me anyway. My husband is still Buddy's favorite toy. That is my husband's fault..he is just a big kid. I thought I would show you what is on my hook..it is another swirl tabletopper..in yellow..started it last night. I am hoping to have it done by Sunday.. Well..that's about it for now..everyone have a great day and good luck to those on the east coast hoping you guys come out on the good side of the storm..

Vikki, I can't seem to get going today either so I am having a jammie day. It is hot and humid and I had the beginnings of a migraine so I took my imitrex and am just going to piddle in the house. Love this new doily. You do the prettiest patterns.
Buddy looks like a big puppy. I love big dogs. When they are trained and obey they are a joy to be around. My neighbor has a med. sized dog that I call Psycho. She is not socialized and is crazy. I am scared to death of her. It is a shame because she is a beautiful black dog and could be so different if she had been taught. Keep us posted on Buddy. He is a charmer. Stay cool!

Buddy is beautiful vikki! our big shepard is just a little over 120lbs but you can never really tell until they fully grow... a friend of ours, their shepard is closer to 130...yikes!!! Shepards are the best dogs to have(don't tell that to my little dogs) in my opinion because they are very loyal and they are excellent watch dogs. Enjoy buddy!! :o) Your newest doilie is beautiful and I love the color too. have a nice week, hugs, Jennifer
