Is it possible I haven't posted a new blog entry since last Tuesday? Not sure where the time goes!

It is gray and stormy today and my little dog Elsie is not enjoying the cold one little bit! She is wearing the new fleece sweatshirt I made for her in the photo above. There was enough in the remnant from Hancock Fabric, I was able to make two for her, but she won't leave either one on!

The goal was to protect her (all 4 pounds of her) from the elements, but she doesn't seem to see the benefit. As soon as it is wrapped around her, a frenzy sets in and doesn't stop until she succeeds in removing the wrap.

Hopefully, she will get used to the feel soon and stop fighting it!

I'm almost finished with an altered-book spread and will post the photo tomorrow.

For now, I'm trying to install the Verizon DSL wireless modem in the house. The cable connection has been a nightmare for all four years we've had it. Time for a change!

I love the sweatshirt! Is it a pattern or did you make it yourself based on her body size? I have a 7-pd. maltese-shitzu mix and always trying to find warm sweaters I like. Maybe I need to think about making something...

The sweatshirt is a pattern I made from a friend’s doggy coat. I adjusted the girth for Elsie and moved the waistband toward her bum. (She’s a long skinny pup)

I used Velcro for closures, because it’s faster to get on her. Unfortunately, it’s faster for her to remove, too! LOL!
