It's Friday, TGIF!

and more sharing. When I was a little girl - like 4 ish - my Dad brought home this little teeny, tiny black poodle from a hunting trip (exactly what a dog and hunting have in common I am not sure) and we named her BeBe (bebette in french means black bug - and I probably spelt it wrong) and it was love at first sight. Another thing about me was I never liked to play with dolls - they didn't talk back and just were so boring....but I loved to dress my dog (and cat) in my doll clothes. I don't think I grew out of that little I love dressing my little doggie, Guinness. I also have discovered I am quite crafty, who woulda thunk it huh? I passed the - teach yourself to crochet class in 10 minutes and managed to figure out how to make this little gem for my little doggie doll...

I also would like to give myself a little round of applause - as I finished my Mother's birthday present - from 2 years ago! Well, when I started it I had no distractions to speak of - and along came two book contracts, traveling, moving, building a house, deadlines for EK and what have you....but it's done. Just in time for me to start another birthday present for her - and it's due on March 28th. I think I'll choose something a little less involved....and before I submit that idea for the 3rd book.....people - am I crazy or what? So, this is some kinda crazy Art quilt that I am totally loving....and thinking maybe I should make one for myself....

Have a great day everyone!
