Pachyderms, Daffodils, and Puppies

I saw this book on Amazon and thought I'd pick it up,  Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts.

I've had a stash of old work shirts from my banking days holed up in the shed.  I had found a little stuffed elephant in the book that looked fun, and just knew those old shirts would be perfect for it.  Blue IS my favorite color, after all, and it seemed like such a waste to throw out so much material in my favorite color.  (I'm a pack rat, I know!)

RIP, WaMu, I still miss you sometimes.

But at least now I have something tangible to show for the stock that I lost. 

Still needs a tail.  It's a work in progress.

In other, non-pachyderm news, our first daffodil is blooming on our property.

And guess what else is growing like a weed?  

Yup.  Vet visit tomorrow!  He's mastered sit, down, and sometimes runs when you call him. He's been a good puppy so far- we haven't had an accident in a week (knocks on wood).



    This is on my amazon wish list. July 1!!!

    Also: your pup is ridiculously cute! And smart too, apparently!

  2. Oooh, that looks like a great book!

    Why thank you, I love our little corgi. He's gained almost two pounds in two weeks, so I'm not sure how much longer I can call him little. They grow up so fast! (sniff)

  3. Wamu huh? Ouch sorry. Cool creation though.

  4. Yeah, it wasn't the best time in my life. :) But hey, live and learn!
