I was in the sewing room last night? Some nights it's a job just keeping Dumper out of my sewing chair, off my pattern pieces, and away from the pin cushion.
You may remember the story of Dumper's expensive surgery several years ago. That's right. Was doing some hand stitching on a bonnet when Poppy called. When I got back to the sewing room, the needle and thread were gone from the bonnet. An X-ray at the vet's office was all we needed. Cost us $800.00 but we still have little Dumper.
He loves this cutting board, but his favorite toy is tied to the end of that string underneath him...it's a few Guinea feathers I picked up in the yard.
Anyhow, I did manage to get a little sewing done, in fact, lately have finished four little pinafores...
Pinafores like these used to sell good at craft bazaars. Don't know why I ever stopped making them.
Haven't quite finished this one...
but have three more cut out in a size 6.
Also pulled out the pattern for the girl's Pioneer Bonnet...
The rain finally stopped but good grief, the high winds and freezing cold that moved in still keeps us inside. Whew! and with all the trees gone from across the road, there is absolutely no wind break from the north.
behind the bed. He must have partied all night.
Weetie and Smokey are our big eaters! This is normally where they sit and wait for someone to come by and ask, "are you hungry"? See that pitiful look?
Guess that's about it for now. Poppy and I have been cleaning out and moving things around a little. Will save that for another time.
Appreciate your visiting.
PS. Dr. Davis gave me back the rusty needle and thread he removed from Dumperoo...
