Getting Close......

Sheesh, every time I type .... (dot dot dot), I think about the Bachelorette show and the significance behind that comment.  Oh, well, moving right along ~  I'm getting close to finishing up my Frost Sheep rug and it is about time for heavens sake.  Have been so busy that my little bit of hooking time is definitely enjoyed each time I finally get to pull some loops.  My goal is to have it done in time to take to Cape May in September for the rug show at Rugs by the Sea rug camp.  But I still have the other Edward Tulane rabbit to make for a 3rd teacher in Texas and it needs to be there before school starts.  Here is my sheep as of this afternoon.

I still haven't decided exactly what I want to hook for that camp as the loss of Shadow took the wind out of my sails, plus the orders and now must think about making some things for my next craft show which is two weeks after I return from Cape May.  And, I've also been busy filling out applications to adopt a dog thru where I found several appealing Rottweilers thru Majesty Rottweiler Rescue.  I don't think that Shadow would want me to be alone because she took her work and watching over me very seriously.

And, this is a reminder that today is the last day for the special sale at  My wool smorgasbord bundle arrived today and look at all the goodies.  It will be fun trying all these different pieces of wool that I have not previously ordered but because I chose the 'remnant bag' will get to experience some of the wool without having to buy a whole yard ~ who'da thunk about such a great idea?

Well time is whittling away at the day I'd better get busy working on my rabbit.


  1. Saundra your sheep is looking great!I am taking a break from housework it's hot today! I am so glad your looking into getting another dog. You are so right to do that. I prepared when my Indy was getting old to have Maulie . I knew how hard it is. Good luck on your search for a great dog.Cheri

  2. Saundra,
    I love your sheep rug and is going to turn out fabulous!
    I am so sorry for your recent loss of your beloved pet. Life isn't the same without them at our sides. I know another wonderful fur child is waiting out there to watch over you and help ease your loss!
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and your recent comment! I am slow at getting around to everyone's blog these days but I eventually do!
    Stay cool in these extremely hot weather conditions!
