Lost 3-Day Weekend...

I'm really disappointed - at least in some respects. I have pretty much lost my three-day weekend to yet another cold/sinus-y thing. Saturday I was able to accomplish a lot (tho' not quite as much as normal because I stayed up late on Friday night and really slept very late (obviously starting this bug at that point). That cut into my time a lot.

Sunday? Well, I spent it sneezing and blowing. I did sew. But I surely have not, over this three days, done what I usually can do in three days of "freedom!"

So what did I do? Besides the knitting that is...b/c I have been able to knit. How about these:

That's Three DOGGIE Bags.

Ok. Who thinks I only do cats? :)
On the right is Dog Trot, in the middle, Pretty Pooches, and then on the left is Michael Miller's cute Doggie Houses print.

I have to say Dog Trot is MY favorite. Like Jane's feeling that the cats on her Grand Mera make her smile whenever she sees it, this print is constantly surprising me. Oh! - that border collie is tossing sheep in the air! My heavens, that Labrador has a mallard in his clutches!! Tee hee, that Husky is knocking over the penguins! There's something new and amusing in the print every time I look at it! If I were a dog person, that would be the bag I'd carry!

All are the Mera size. And these are headed to a gal in Northern Virginia who always asks me to do these as auction items for her dog club. I hope they are fabulous fundraisers for the club...and you can just see below the bags are a couple of coordinating checkbook covers I'm adding in to hopefully improve the chances that they raise a lot of money!

Tonight my grandson will be with me again (I'm thinking I might have caught what he had last week - sigh) and I'm hoping I can put another scallop or two on Catharina. But failing that, I'll be knitting on the Trekking #160 sock.

It's back to work tomorrow, and I don't have an option of being sick. It's a payroll day. The accountant's "command performance!!"
(everybody loves me on payroll day!)

Oh! So sorry you were sick for it. But at least you didn't have to miss three days of work - wait. That didn't sound right.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
