Life has been a bit crazy at my house this week. My 8-month-old Golden Retriever, Tanner, has had an upset tummy. My 18-year-old daughter, Meg, has also been dealing with some dehydration and exhaustion. And my husband has been dealing with some ongoing health issues. And I have been busy taking care of all of them.
It hasn’t left a lot of time for beading. But I wanted to do a “thank you” gift for a friend who watched Tanner last monday so that I could go to an amusement park with my family.
My friend, Doug, has a Boston Terrier pup. She is a bit younger than Tanner, but not much. I looked her up on my “collar sizes chart” and they suggested a 15 to 18 inch collar. So I started there.
I knew that I wanted to put her name on it too. And this is what I came up with for that part.
For a motif, I chose:
And for my pattern model:
I thought this little guy looked cute.
I named the pattern “Stormy – A Lightening Bolt Dog Collar Motif”
Well the gift is wrapped now and ready to be given. Hopefully tomorrow I can post a photo of the collar on Stormy!
Operation Baby Spoon Update
I have also been working on the Baby Spoon project as time allows. Here is what I have done so far.
I like the look of the piece, but before I write up the instructions, I want to try a sample with tablecloth vinyl and a non-water soluble glue. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
