The Dog is driving me Nuts!!!
I have been home for 4 days and every time I try to get on the computer or use my sewing machine the dog come over with this obnoxious squeaky toy - puts it on my lap and squeaks it like crazy until I throw it. If I hide the squeaky toy she does the same thing with her ball or rope - but the squeaky toy is the worst by far!
And tonight, the #$^ dog got my Joyce Chen bambo salad fork OUT OF THE SINK -- and chewed the heck out of it!! Jim will have to add that to his list of things "Pam needs replaced" (along with the slippers). She has also taken to chewing big holes in Jim's socks. He could be completely sockless by August at the rate she is going!!
I have been doing as much sewing as I have been able to this week. I thought I would get so much done with Jim away and me off work the entire week. I did manage to make a "This and That" charm bag. I had bought the pattern at the Craft and Sewing show in Abbotsford. Wendy had made one not that long ago, she made hers slightly different than the pattern. I followed the pattern using charm squares and then put the zipper in differently and put it together upside down! That I will also blame on the dog. Of course I still don't have the camera for pictures. Jim will be back tomorrow. It sounds like he has a terrible cold - so he has not been to happy the past few day.
I have been re-arranging my blogs. I started up a "Google Reader" which I put all the Q4P blog on and then all the other blogs are still on "Bloglines" I am hoping that it works better for me to follow the blogs I like to read regularly and still be able to go around the Q4P blog ring easily. I like being part of the blog ring and meeting the new bloggers as the join and the ring gets bigger. I found out about Google Reader from Nancy. I quite like the way it works - and it is nicely linked with the Blogger and Picasa because it is all by Google. So far so good.
