That beautiful group shot was taken in September, 2004...wow, that's 4 years ago, already! My sister, Julie, who used to live in the apartment next to me, is standing just out of the shot with treats...the dogs all lined up and patiently waited for their yummies!
Who's who??? Left to right: Tag, of course. Next, the sable & white collie, is Cruiser. He died in February, 2007...I miss him still. Tango, course, is the tri-color. The golden retriever is Manley, my sister's dog. I had spent time with him every single day from the day we brought him home from the breeder until she moved to Colorado 20 months ago. I miss that boy...not a huge golden lover, but he was a funny guy and Tag's bud! I sometimes called Manley 'Doodlehead'. I talk in his ear on the phone once in awhile. Then, course, there's Little Miss Princess Honey-do Allegra.
Here are a couple of other shots taken that day...

I still need to redo the tail.
AND, I'm going to redo the white of the
put in strips that are more tan.
May change a few other things, too...
but I'm relatively happy with this.
That's all for now.

BUT...don't despair. I did pick up some useful tips from her...the most important one is taking a piece of time...whether it be 15 minutes or 60...doesn't matter. Work, work, work until the time is up and it is amazing how much one can accomplish!!
For instance...this morning, I wanted to get everything straightened up so that when I start on a new project later today (more on that in a bit), I won't be feeling guilty. Okay, so I never feel guilty. BUT, this way, I feel better!!! I took 61 minutes and got so much accomplished!
So...you see, things don't really take that long to do! (yes, I know you all know this...I am the one who constantly needs reminding!)
Now, I can do whatever I want to for the rest of the day...YAY!!! Course, I do need to vacuum, but I'll do that later. Really need to do something about this, first...
This is the accumulation of some of the woolens from my last 2 projects. And, probably a few pieces for my big a** star rug. What a mess I make!
So. Last night, I had one of those lightbulb moments!Part of that moment was remembering a pattern insert from the June/July/August 2005 issue of RHM. If you want to see what it is, go ahead and look, but shhhhhh...it's a secret project! I think I have all the woolens in my stash to do this rug...so I can get right on it...I am very excited! And, I had a nice piece of linen that I had drawn a pattern on BADLY, so used the reverse side. Like I said, this is a secret project, so cannot tell you anything else for now. I'm hoping to get it done before October 31, so you'll see it soon.
Okay...off to the store and then I can hook!!!

The mats measure approximately 16 x 16 inches...and the center motif could be a pumpkin, a saltbox house, or acorns. The motif designs were supplied by me.
