This past Christmas my nephew David asked me to make him a blue puppy like the one he saw in my shop. Gee, it only took me three months! Of course, I couldn't send a puppy to David without making one for each of his brothers. So I've made four puppies - one for each boy. I put little collars on these instead of the usual neck scarf and used Velcro so they can easily take them off and put them on. Plus I added a little thrifted button for a tag.
To close out the week and kick-off the weekend... here's a picture of something that I see everyday: my bookshelves. I've always admired it when people's magazines were organized into holders. For my birthday last year Mark helped me assemble this shelf from IKEA and I put all of my magazines and books onto it. The lower shelves (which you can't see) have baskets full of fabric and notions. It's a great shelving unit because it's two-sided. The other side holds books too! The other side faces my sewing corner and holds some of Mark's books like his Penguin paperbacks. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a great weekend! See you Monday.
