The Case of the Missing Pancake

I was eating breakfast and Charlie needed to go outside. When we came back in, this is what my plate looked like. Hmmm... When I left I had several tasty bites of pancake left to enjoy.

Finnegan was sitting on my chair looking quite pleased with himself.

Then Charlie gave him the what for!

More Scarf Action

Scarf #3, a gift for G.

Scarf #4, a gift for A.

I think this is the longest one so far!

Christmas Morning

Charlie helping M open presents.

Brunch with the B/Hs. This isn't a great photo of anyone, but we had a great meal thanks to M.

Nap time by the heat vent after all of the excitement.

Nap time for the puppy too.

Scarf #2

This is my second (actually 3rd, I didn't get pics of the very first one) scarf present of the season. They were delivered to A+E on Sunday night and I think that they were both happy with them!

Now for more cutting and sewing!

Back in the Craft Room

I have been out of the studio for the past few weeks and with the arrival of one Charles Garnet Rider my time has been filled up with lots of short puppy walks. I finally got back at some sewing yesterday.

The following are some scarves I have been working for Christmas gifts, (hopefully no one is following the blog too closely!).

A few weeks ago all of the thrift stores had half price on all of their clothes. I stocked up on some dress shirts and put the collars and button hole strips to use!

This one is all thrift store supplies from the upcycled shirts to the super score on a couple or meters of blue corduroy.

This was my attempt at a machine stitched signature, but I think I need to get the free motion foot on!

This is the start of scarf # 2.

More to come when it's done. Hopefully this aft!

Curling Up

It's tough being a puppy. There is playing and peeing and eating and napping to be done, all the time!

A New Addition: Charlie

My friend Willow dropped around with a puppy looking for a home. Until she arrived I was determined that I didn't need a dog any time soon. Then I met Harley (now Charlie). The cats are unsure at best, but I think that they will come around.

We are working on potty training and crate training to start, but he knows his name and only barks when he's chasing the cats. (There may also have been a little howling in the night from the crate)

The happy family :)

Living Room Update 2

The old dining room hutch and giant couch are gone. And the Christmas tree is up, just waiting to be decorated. I will be keeping my eyes peeled charity shopping and on Kijiji.
