wips: little stripes for little bodies.
Right after Jackie died last winter, I knit a lot of stripes. They were all for little bodies. It was so meditative and allowed me to find color in darkness. And use up bits and bobs from my stash. When you’ve been knitting a long time, you realize how much little tiny bits of leftover…
I love making homemade dog treats for my pups. Please make these homemade peanut butter bacon biscuits for the canine in your life. You–and they!–won’t regret it.
vday for doggies.
It’s important you treat everyone you love to something special on Valentine’s Day. But I’m a firm believer it should be something unique and handmade, rather than some over the top grand gesture. A meal at home, a hand drawn card, oh, and perhaps, some peanut butter and bacon dog biscuits for your beloved canine.…
summer canine bliss, 6.23
It’s about that time of year again; the wonder corgi, sir winston churchill, getting a boat ride or 100.
officially summer, 6.20
It’s officially summer, and the corgi Sir Winston Churchill, despite hating the heat, does love boating. And so he takes his second ride of the season. If this isn’t pure bliss, an utter representation of a dog’s life, then I don’t know what is…
snuggling with pup, 3.25
I spent a lot of my break just playing with this here Sir Winston Churchill, and he in turn paid me thanks with snuggling and smiling at me under the blankets. What a ham.
dinner guest, 1.23
My mum serves brilliant Sunday dinners. Our recent dinner guest, Willa Cather the pup, is one of Sir Winston Churchill’s closest chums. She liked sitting politely at the dinner table during dessert, whilst Sir Win paced at the thought of my mum’s gingerbread cake.
pup in snow.
Sir Winston Churchill just adores the snow. He gets energized by the cold–and since his legs are so squat, he has to pop his body and prance through the high drifts in the most adorable mania known to man. He is like a child who wears their pajamas inside out the night before the chance…
Sir Winston Churchill decided to burrow in my bed blankets the other night. Smitten.
a dog’s life, 9.9
Sir Winston loves summer boating extravaganzas; he basks at the back–in the wind, excitement, and ever so slightly pushes the envelope of risk, stretching his short little legs right toward the edge. And he looks gorgeous in black and white, too.
Sir Winston Churchill loves to look out the screen door in search of chipmunks, and his neighbor friend, Irish Wolf Hound Kendrick, who looks like a small pony. A sight to see next to my little guy Win.
For some reason, the corgi Sir Winston Churchill just loooves standing on my knitting…and, well, the coffee table, too. So if you’ve ever been gifted something handmade by yours truly, its probably got a bit of a contribution from Winston too… I think he’s attracted to all my yarns and projects because he can smell…
