Good Sunday Evening to all ! Stopping by to update you on my weekend ! Saturday was spent on a lil light housework , being stalked throughout the house by one cantankerous blog kitty , a lot of laying around playing on Pinterest and a quick sewing project .
About that project... My youngest sister , Kim ...known round here as "Farmer Kim " had a birthday on Friday , but she had to work, since she works second shift . So today( Sunday) my Dad, Sister and rest of the family were having a lil bite to eat and a gathering for her Birthday at a local restaurant, I knew I wasn't going to be able to go , as I still cannot sit in the car, or sit down to eat , let alone socialize , however the Princess was going to go without me ! Princess informed me that she could NOT attend a party without a "PROPER " gift , and she was right , but as always I had not a dollar to my name ! So , we decided to do what we always do , and make something !
Princess suggested a Valentines table mat or runner or something with dogs , as Farmer Kim has two bassett hound furkids named Chester and Phyllis and they are like an old married couple and her "pride and joy" .
So , as I stood at the kitchen counter, trying to find ideas on Pinterest with no luck , I decided to create my own design , so I drew up a Bassett silhouette pattern , cut it out , traced it twice onto black felt and cut 2 out ,I then measured and cut out and stitched a simple table runner from a checked cotton, appliqued a basset hound on each end and gave each hound an appliqued red wool heart . :) I hear tell that she liked it ! Yay! I think the next day I feel half decent I might try making a few with different types of dogs and cats on them to see what they look like , as this was a fairly fast easy project.
I shared in a prior post that my Dad usually makes each of us girls a handcrafted gift from his woodshop for Christmas , and that this year I asked him to make Princess her loft bed in lieu of me getting a gift ! Well today my Dad shows up to pick up Princess for the party , and tells me to get my slippers and jacket and come to the truck , he had to show me something !!! Out the door I went, bed head, pink betty boop fuzzy jamma pants, slippers and all !
In the bed of his truck ...A SURPRISE CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR LIL OL' ME!!!! He made each of us girls a "log bench " for our gardens/porches , but it was so muddy at Christmas he couldn't back his truck up to his woodshop to load them !!! They are AWESOME!!! Mine is sitting on the screened in front porch for now , which is where it most likely will stay , just maybe not in the same spot! I spent a lil time wandering around on the porch admiring my new bench this afternoon , as it has been in the mid 50's most of the weekend, which is rare for late January in Ohio! But Ill take it !!!
That's the weekend in a nutshell , will be back soon to share some more of our days with you ...until we meet again ...Ill always be ...just a lil raggedy ! hugs
