Dog Jacket

I bought the book 101 One Yard Wonders awhile back and flipped thru the pages to see what a quick project would be for a newbie sew-er like myself to get into in an afternoon. I had/have alot of fabric scraps lying around and I was trying to create a project using those scraps in a re-fashioned/recycled kinda way. Well here is the result....A dog jacket for my dog Poochie!!!

I started with 2 jean skirts of mine that where too small and hadn't been worn in ages. I'm sure I could have made the jacket with just one skirt but I was trying to not to get alot of the seams, etc that were in the existing skirt into the finished jacket. I can see a few mistakes I made (not pressing out the seams, and putting the velco on backwards lol) but I think it came out pretty cute!! I think I'm gonna save the pattern and maybe make a lighter weight version for spring/summer.

Let It Snow, Let it Snow, LET IT SNOOOWWWW!!!

Cookie madness has been going @ my house. My knitting group had a cookie swap over the weekend and I made 6 dozen gingerbread cookies to swap. We had a great time @ the party!

I'm late for Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving has come and gone and I missed it (or missed blogging about it). My family/situation/relationship has shrunk and/or changed but the feelings remain the same. I didnt cook for nearly as many people this year as I did last year (just my daughter, my sweetie, Poochie, and myself) so it didnt take DAYS of cooking like in years past. Basically, I spent the holiday full of food and love surrounded by the people I care most about. But I know what you really wanna know about....WHAT DID YOU COOK?!

I made a ham, pecan pie, carrot cake, cranberry sauce (1st time), buttermilk biscuits, greens, mac n cheese....whew! It was great!
