Bruddahs from anuddah muddah! Benji and Paco.
Laura recently adopted Benji and was trying to figure out what breed he mostly was - Paco is a fox terrier mix (according to several vets who've seen him over the years) and I think Benji is as well. I might be a bit biased when I say how cute they both are.
I suspect Benji is probably as devoted to his owners as Paco is to us. Paco is my shadow, and when I'm at my desk, this is usually where he is:
Wedged in between the spokes on my desk chair...apparently the blanket is too far away from me.
I just lobe you so much, Mom.
This one is for Lori, who has a beautiful garden and is always treating us to her "What's Blooming" posts on Friday:
My one day lily plant that isn't orange. It only blooms sporadically, too - most of the time it's just a clump of green.
Sit and Knit update: My mom requested a pink poufy baby hat for a shower gift, and I also needed to make one to be included in a display that my knitting guild will have at our library later this summer, so I knocked both of them out:
Wouldn't these be adorable on twin baby girls? I have a friend who's trying to get pregnant - is it wrong that I'm hoping she has at least one girl??
I've also been making good progress on that pink shawl:
I pinned it so you can see the lace pattern - it's coming along, although I still have over 150 stitches left to pick up, so this is definitely a long-term project. The white stripe you see is my lifeline - I need to move it to the row of stitches that the needle is on. With this in place, should I make a catastrophic mistake, I'd only have to unravel to the lifeline. Of course, my fingers are crossed that I won't have to do that!
My birthday is on Monday, and I've already been receiving treats via email - so far I gotten:
- Yogurtland - 16 oz free (that's A LOT of yogurt - might have to share it with Jeff)
- McAlister's Deli - $5 off coupon
- Starbucks - free drink (time for my annual Frappuccino, yum)
- IHOP - free pancakes (haven't been there in a long time, but their Harvest Grain and Nut pancakes might be calling my name...)
- 20% off coupons at Jo-Ann's Fabric, Lone Star Quiltworks, and WC Mercantile (yarn!)
Have a great weekend - our monthly AIM post will be up on Monday!
