Stuffed Dogs

Stuffed Dogs

I've mentioned I get a bit obsessive with projects.
I'm sewing and stuffing Scottie dogs.
My friend Andrea has convinced me to sell at the Wheeler Farm Farmers Market.
I'll try it out.
I have a few Scottie dogs to sell.

Scotties. (14)



To stuff. (17)

To sew and stuff. (48)

Freya: "This is how dogs say 'hello' ".

Yes Freya.

Tulle Over the Top

Tulle Over the Top

I sewed my self a skirt .
I was planning on taking it to Disneyland when we go next Saturday but after sitting in it I decided it's only a standing dress. I guess I'll need some leggings with it.

Sewing tulle sucks. This time instead of ruffling it I gathered bunches of strips and sewed them on .

I fell in love with this fabric the first time I saw it.

It's by Alexander Henry : The Ghastlies.

It reminds me of Edward Gorey.

I want to make a softie of the little fat boy in stripes.

And the best is the knitting witches!

The fabric also reminds me of my favorite Halloweeny book.

I've been on a healthy eating kick.

To those that complain they can't eat healthy I present to you The Village Bakery sandwich.

(9000 south a bit east of Redwood).

You can't eat both halves in one sitting.

Turkey provolone on sourdough.

Chicken salad on multi grain wheat.
