Hello! So much time has gone by between my last post and this one… I am sorry.
Our new puppy has taken up much of my time. We’ve had Pebbles, our chihuahua puppy, for two months now. I’ve enjoyed these early days with him very much. He’s gone on lots of socializing adventures to Home Depot and other stores (including a yarn shop), parks and walks in the neighborhood. He is a very sweet boy, but a little scared in new places, so this effort while he is still young should make him a happier adult.
Pebbles is now 7-months old. Our vet said he is at his adult weight which is about 3-1/2 pounds! I thought our older dog, also a chihuahua was little at 7-8 pounds. This guy is even smaller. So you can get an idea of his size here is a picture of me walking him. Pebbles walks very nicely on a leash and enjoys going for walks. He knows when we’ve turned around and are heading home which is when he will pull ahead and get a little excited.
I try and include a little bit of dolly related making on my daily to do list. I find that this is the only way for me to get anything accomplished for my dolls. If I wait for everything else to be done… well, it never is. Sometimes I even have some cuddly company while working.
I recently finished this spring ensemble for my beautiful Kaye Wiggs MSD sized Gracie. I must say I wish I had a cardigan like Gracie’s!
I have also started another spring ensemble for the Kaye Wiggs girls. Last weekend found me seated at my sewing machine, gathering and sewing the skirt onto the bodice.
During the week I finished the dress up by hand sewing the bodice lining to the waist seam and adding snaps. The cardigan was knitted and waiting for the dress to be sewn. Hopefully, either this weekend or next week I will find some time for completing the embroidery on the cardigan.
I am wishing you all a wonderful weekend. It is supposed to get into the 60s tomorrow here in northern Illinois! I hope you are having some beautiful springlike weather also.
Take care–stay healthy, my friends!
