Weekend Projects

Hooley is for sure a project.  He is actually a pretty good dog, and yet we all are adjusting.  Getting new routines down, learning rules, forming rules, and figuring out what a dog even needs!  Since dog beds at the pet store cost something ridiculous like $60 and up, we thought we'd go ahead and skip that. So I made him one today, for half that!  You can see how thrilled he is:

Ha ha. Actually, he just hasn't woken up long enough for me to whisk our deck chair cushion out from under him.  This was a neat project.  Pretty simple & quick in the end, but something I've never done before, and on such a big scale!  In actuality, it is really just a large pillow case with a funny-shaped pillow inside (flat and with edges).  I made a little tag in the corner with some of the extra fabric so that he could chew on it if he is inspired.

Other weekend projects: an apron to finish off my order for my Portland friend (on its way tomorrow, Vanessa!) and a series of cards that was kind of like this one.  The others were all even cuter than this one, but I mailed them off before I got them memorialized in my camera.

The paper did all the work for me, it is so lovely!

It looks great, she'll love it! It will be very stylish for when she hosts her dinner parties. :) And I love the card too. Good work, and glad to hear the dog is settling in!
