Seeing Cherries!

I decided to make a jacket/harness for my little precious doggie, Suki. I <3 cherries and so I thought I would 'try' my pattern that I just made to make a sweet harness for her! She's so funny because she loves to wear clothes but she hates trying them on, or have things go over her as I was trying to fit this pattern and the pieces on her, she would run away, and I had to chase her all over the house...

Finally catching up with her was fun, but exhausting!

Well, it's not knitted but quilted and almost done. I have to look for some wide velcro for the abdomen area I wanted to make a hawaiian one for her too. It isn't easy to find purple hawaiian fabric at Joanns = go figure that one!

The Cosby Sweater Project

The Cosby show...1980's..was my favorite show. I was so bummed when they finally decided to stop production because it was so funny. I love Bill Cosby's humor and his family values. He might not be perfect but he certainly had a way about him that was just too funny and yet, you knew he cared about the kids on his show and "FAMILY".

one of the things they always had, was a sense of fashion too, and sweaters! Finally someone has made a list of the sweaters they wore on the show...I thought it was great..maybe you will too!

New yarns....

Again Treasure hunting at Tuesday morning! i wonder what store they got these from but they are gorgeous! I love the selction they had..they had several different color waves for this lovely Louisa Harding ribbon yarn, called Kimono Ribbon. Lovely rich colors!

The other yarn I found was Wisdom yarn POEMS...nice 100% wool yarn perfect for felting. They did have another wave that was more turquoise, (5 skeins) but I decided that I have enough yarn...gasp! so I have to wait on these......

In Memory of ....Lilo

I used to have 4 cats..

this is my shy girl, Lilo. She was the sweetest cat, who just loved to be petted but not picked up and cuddled. She would sleep next to me and she was just so gentle and sweet.

she didn't like the doggie (suki) but I have to say that as she was sick, suki would cry and watch her in the crate.

suki and I both miss Lilo

Now, I just have the 1 dog and 1 cat....little more manageable, but I miss the ones who have left....
