Nothing....








Nothing bead-wise to post about! Ive been too busy caring for a sick dog. Maddux has started fevering again, poor sweet boy! Its been a rough time with losing my Mom, Maddux being sick, and my camera getting broken! I have been working on my BJP pieces, slowly but surely. Hopefully I will be posting the finished piece this week sometime. The crochet bug has bitten me and I have been making the cutest mug cozies! They take about an hour each and are so darn cute. I think they would make nice Christmas gifts, just add a couple mugs and some coffee or tea and put them in a basket! The color combos are endless, you can customize them to your color scheme in your kitchen. I am a very beginner crocheter (is that even a word)? but I found the pattern easy to do. If you want to check it out, the pattern is free HERE. I leave you with a picture of one of my mug cozies, and my most handsome Maddux!

O, the cozies are cute! Great idea for a Gift Basket.

I sympathize with the sick dog syndrome. I am fighting a loosing battle for Junior. Its a lot of time, effort, and love that only another dog lover can understand.

Blessings,
Carol

Sorry things have been so hard for you guys lately! Love your! Bubba is such a gorgeous boy!

I love the cozie! I think you are right they would make an awesome gift! I know I would use one! *wink wink* I have an Art booth at the Farmer's Market starting this fall for 8 weeks. Let me know if you want to put some in :)

The mug holder is charming. Hard to believe you're new at crochet... it looks very professional. Yep, a gift basket of mugs, cozies and coffee would be delightful!

Sorry about Maddux. I hope he gets better soon.

So sorry about your puppy, I know what you are going through. We almost lost my greyhound Hans today, but he pulled through again. It's such a helpless feeling when there is not much you can do. I hope he gets better :-)
