My new friend, Maria, and other stuff

I don't know what I was so worried about, bringing this new dog into my life, because I love her!  She is beautiful and loving and gentle and is so smart!  The 2 older dogs here don't know what to think of her, but they'll adjust, after a rocky morning, we're having a peaceful evening.

Be looking for some new Critters in my shop, probably by the end of the week.  I have quite a few that are in the "finishing up" stage.

Quite at home.  

Here are a couple of sneak peeks, unedited photos for my etsy shop.  

This lazy pony is made out of muslin instead of felt.
All natural colors, I love the look. 

This squirrel was done in an embossed felt, 
with coordinating belly and forehead.  

This squirrel, done in muslin.  I really love this pattern.  
Wanna see another one?  

You sure?  

Ok

The very elusive, rarely seen...Zebra Squirrel.
Known for it's red nose, and glittery forehead and belly.
Quite a catch.

So, now that you've been updated on what's been going on around here, I have to go find a good harness pattern on Pinterest for my new canine.  

Play Nice!  xxoo

Maria

Did I mention that I was recently rescued by a most adorable, sensitive, gentle canine?

This little girl has more love in her that seems possible.

We're going to be Therapy Girls together, and visit the elder hones here in town.  This girl, my Maria, will be a great comfort to them.

There's just something about this one.

Play Nice.  xxoo

What Have I Done?

We just got both kids outta the house, and I go and adopt a dog?

How could I resist?

Off to Amazon.com to do some shopping!  *squee*

A planned day vs. reality. Reality won.

I am happy to have a day off, slept in a little bit, had a shower and put on clean jammies.  I was already thinking what I was going to make today, but I wanted to try out my new photo box that DD got me for my birthday...got that set up, battery dead in the camera.

Alright, I am not at work, it is a beautiful day here.  We had a storm this morning that was nice to listen to.  My battery will be charged in a minute, I'll just go cut out a pig or something.  Went into my sewing room to do just that, but I had gotten a couple of props out for the photo shoot...I've been thinking about putting a little something with my Critters, but wasn't finding what I was looking for.  The thought popped in my head that I, myself, do actually own a good amount of what we call "Little Guys"  Like for example, a little hand carved Giraffe...anyway, these are stored away in a dresser, different drawers, There area absolutely no clothes in that dresser, it is full of a bunch of stuff I've gathered over the years.

An hour later, I have a basket of Little Guys, but no felt has been cut as of yet.

I'll go try now.  Wish me luck!

3:12, back from the grocery store.  Better to go get the supplies for the Pro Shop today instead of in the morning.  Had to change into real clothes, put on a bra...but I made it.  Got my jammies back on, having a cold beverage...gotta check and make sure I haven't missed anything on facebook, right?

I re-listed a bunch of Critters yesterday, Getting ready to do some more, battery is charged, but my get up and get at it is a little in need of a rest for a few.

A thought entered my head, re which Critter to make.  I have the felt in front of me, and the pattern.  All I needs is a little Netflix in the background.

Show you what I came up with next time, until then, go take a look at the other Critters, yeah?

Play Nice!  xxoo
