We left here Thursday morning for a much needed long beach weekend. I had such great intentions of making more Pieced Hexies. My only sewing time last week was spent getting these ready to stitch. I had kitted up 7 designs thinking I would get them all finished and have nothing to sew. So I grabbed my knitting box along with my to go knitting bag.
I did not open my sewing box. Not one time! We were so busy with running around and clamming and resting that I even did very little knitting.
When we got home and things were somewhat put away, I wanted my recliner-clamming is hard work on an out of shape ole broad! So when the Super Bowl came on, I decided to work on these. I am so glad I started on them again. They are so much fun to make! You can find Mickey's books at her website.
Saturday we visited the local Humane Society and as soon as I saw this little guy, I knew he had to be part of our family. So we adopted him. He is a 4 year old long hair chihuahua. We changed his name because Pretty Boy sounds like a bird name. He is now Jessie Sam-Buzz Domke. Today I'll make an appointment with the vet to have a well baby check up and a neuter. I'm not saying he was from a puppy mill but I have a suspicion. He is fitting in nicely and even stayed on my lap while I was stitching.
