More Problems...

Once again, I am without a computer. The laptop I took on after my own fizzled and died, has now done the same thing. So now, in order to get my blog 'fix', I have to jump on whatever computer I can. There have been quite a few 'awww Mom's!' around here lately, as I gently muscle my way onto my kids computers. ( I don't see a problem with that, do you?) So needless to say, the likelihood of me posting many ( if any ) blog posts in the days leading up to Christmas is very low. I will do what I can, whenever I can, until I get another laptop of my own. Personally, I am hoping that Santa thinks I have been a very good girl this year, and on Christmas Morning I will find a shiny new laptop under my tree!

So, in case I am not able to post again before the holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to each of you and your families. I hope the new year brings health and happiness to one and all!

Wheezy's New Wardrobe

In keeping with my last post, today I'm going to show you my latest puppy project! Remember Wheezy? Cassandra's new mini dachshund?

Well, as part of Cassandra's Christmas gift, I made Wheezy a new wardrobe!

They fasten around his neck and belly with velcro.

Aren't they cute? I hope Cassandra likes them. The red/skulls, and the blue/happyfaces are flannel, the flames are cotton. I lined them all with two layers of flannel for warmth. I used Simplicity 2393.

This pattern was extremely quick and easy. If he was a girl I would have trimmed them up pretty, but, since he's male, he'd probably have a problem with that! I settled for putting his initial on two.

With the weather we are enjoying (enjoying?) today, he will certainly need them.

We are expected to get 20-30cm (about 8 - 12 inches) every twelve hours for the next two days....

Maybe the next coats should be fur lined. With flashing lights.

And stilts. TALL stilts.

Merry Christmas! Anne
