My New Puppy
"Snowflake" was born May 4th. She is very cute and very busy. At 3 1/2 months and 3 1/2 pounds, she almost has me trained. This was not my plan. The little angel that is holding her in this pic is the grandson of the breeder and the pic was taken the day before she came to me.
It gets very cold here in the winter so I figured I would train her to go on "pee pads". She thinks they are for chewing up and it is the only spot in the room where she won't go. I got a drawer and put kitty litter it it, thinking maybe that would work. She thinks that's for eating and sleeping in. So far, I think I am doing everything wrong. She also bites if you try to take something away from her. She is into everything so I'm doing that a lot. Any suggestions would be welcome.

I'm Impressed

Do you sew??? I do have a sewing machine.....Mine is a stupid sewing machine. I know that because mine only sews somewhat straight seams.
Now my sister on the other hand....She has a really good machine. This is only one of the things that my sister's machine does.

Her machine made all this beautiful bedding. I read the instructions for mine and it said that I can do all this...ya right!!

I've had a few requests for the purse pattern. My pattern is posted and I would love it if you would send me pictures to post after you've made one. I plan on making more myself when I get finished with some of this other stuff. Any of you making something a little different or just have some good idea's to share? I'd be happy to post them here.

There are 6 F's in the square.....count them

If you counted 5 or more F's - you are a genious

If you counted 4 F's - You are smarter than most

If you counted 3 F's - You are average

If you counted 2 or less - maybe you should go back to school

No-sew purse

This purse is made on straight needles...double pointed work best...There are no seams to sew up and it has 3 sections inside for your "what have you "...change I used drapery rings for the the flap and made the design on the rings using a macrame' square knot and for the strap I used a half square knot which makes a twist. It could have been braided or knitted or crocheted...

I made a macrame wall hanging a long time ago and I'd been thinking of trying it again. I have a bag full of these drapery rings so I decided to combine the rings and macrame' with my knitting. You could also use costume bracelets or what have you. I didn't want to add buttons or anything you have to be doing up and undoing. Just flip it over and back and the weight keeps it closed.

Doesn't look like much but this is the purse and the inside sections. When you fold it back on will be right side out and ready to knit the flap.
Like so.....I don't take very good pictures. In the picture below, I'm trying to show the sections inside the purse before I added the flap etc.

So here it no-sew purse, complete with 3 inside pockets, all made in one piece. I think it might be cute on a teen and would go well with jeans.

Lynn's 4 layer method Carriage or Stroller Blanket

This little blanket is like no other I have ever seen. If you have, please let me know. I figured out how to knit 4 layers at the same time 20 or so years ago but have never done anything much with it. I decided that I'd better get to it before I get too much older.

The border of this blanket is two layers. The squares are 4 layers and in between the squares it is single knit. It is all done on two straight needles. It's not quite finished but I wanted to show it on the needles. The squares will be puffy....I think more so after it has been washed because the layers are not attached other than the ends which is the single knit in between the squares. It looks pretty much the same on both sides.
