Dogs and Pin Cushions

I decided to buy a pre-made doggie hat for Pete to see if he would wear it or not. I would love to make him some doggie costumes but I don't want to go to all that trouble just to find out that he won't wear it. He looks so cute in it but he really doesn't like it at all. He will wear a bandana around his neck if the weather is cool enough so I guess that will have to do.

I am done with all of the pin cushion ladies! Yay! I am relieved. Now on to the next obligation project which is a RR piece.

Pin Cushion Ladies

This is what I've been working on. I have to make 80 ladies. Yikes! I'm hoping to finish them all in a week.

Busy, Busy!

As you can see, I have no crafty updates. Spring is always a busy time for me. We seem to expand our garden a little more each year so I have been out there planting, watering, composting, and weeding. If all goes well, I will be harvesting tomatoes, squash, zucchini, green beans, purple hull peas, Lima beans, corn, cucumbers, potatoes, swiss chard, and various peppers. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

I am hoping to get a few crafty things done this month though. I have a RR piece that I need to work on and I promised my Mom to help her make 60+ pin cushion ladies (It's a pot with a painted face and a pin cushion hat) that she is making for a Mother's Day banquet. When we get some of those done, I will post a photo. They really do turn out cute.

I also need to work on my cousin's quilt but I doubt I could finish it by the end of this month.
