And it wasn’t ready for Christmas! If you didn’t get your Pollyanna gift from me, skip this post, eh?
So I thought maybe the ‘M’ setting would be like the ‘B’ setting on my old K1000. I pushed the button, and then couldn’t get the camera to stop taking the picture or shut off or do just about anything. Except it got this
does it look like a book cover for a creepy mystery?
It ended up as 42 inches long. Just a tad short. Enough to wrap once, but the tails just stick out of the wrapped section around the neck. Should I put fringe on it? The fringe would have to be red, or black/gray/red; there isn’t enough to do tails in all black. Should I pick up and knit or crochet an edge? Fringe is quicker, and it is already late, but I’m open to suggestions here.
Franklin was charming, warm, welcoming, and entertaining. Much different than the tough guy gym rat he looks like in his host photo on his blog. Or maybe he’s channeling Dolores in that picture?
Took the two of us adults to settle them, but it was over as quick as it started and they were tail wagging and ready for a treatie. So the stuffed toys now only come out for short bursts.
Have you all seen the Craftzine blog? All kinds of interesting stuff shows up there, knitted and not. I was especially taken by the gun-shaped purse, though I wouldn’t want to wear it travelling or in airports (and I’m not really a handbag kind of person).
The girls are about to have some new cousins. Their auntie is 62 days pregnant, and ready to pop any moment. I thought maybe they’d come yesterday. The best Christmas gift ever, life.
Auntie Bear, sister to the girls’ mom
She may not look it, but Bear is 1/2 border collie and 1/2 yellow lab. But put her near a ball and she is all border collie. The father is a different dog than the girls’ father, a lovely, boxy, well-tempered apricot standard poodle. Bear, her sister Micky (mom to the girls), their mom Kate, and their dad Tucker are all used in therapy work with kids. Which explains a lot about my girls’ general good temperment.
kate, micky, and one of their pups a couple of years ago
I had a dream some months ago that my friend had a batch of puppies running around, and some of them looked like little red Zuzus (I didn’t have Gracie as a pup, so don’t have that connection). I’m very very interested to see what these puppies look like. I’ve a standing invite to come watch them being born (unless it’s the middle of the night), so I’ll probably have puppy pics. Not sure if all the pups are spoken for, but if you’re interested in more info, let me know and I’ll hook you up with my friend.
