Oh happy day!

Yesterday was fun and full of surprises!! I received my swap package!! Yay! It contained some beautiful fluffy purple mohair yarn, grey yarn and a cute purple crochet hook case. I've already put all my hooks in it. This case is a lot better than one the I attempted to make months ago, my hooks would always fall out and I didn't make enough slots in it. SO glad I got a new one! Thanks Brie! I'm putting my swap in the mail today. Hope you like it!

After work yesterday, my mom and I took our dogs for an hour and a half walk. She has a large German Shepard Tilly (alpha female), who isn't very friendly with other dogs, especially small ones. We'd like to break her of those behaviors, so we tried what Cesar Milan always suggests. We took them on a walk together and never let them touch or greet each other. We just kept walking them at the same pace and kept moving forward. You know what, that dog whisperer might actually know something after all. By the end of the walk Tilly had stopped pulling to get near Izzie and didn't snarl or show aggression! That is huge for her! We're going to try it again after work today. Hopefully they can learn to be friends! All Izzie wanted to do was play with her =-)

I started my CAL last night from the group Friends with Yarn. So far so good! I think it will look great once it's done. Shouldn't take me much longer to finish. I had some downtime at work yesterday and whipped out another small project. Its totally impractical and pointless, but cute nonetheless. An apple cozy:

PS. do you think these dogs are a little spoiled??


  1. Yay! I'm so glad you liked it. I think i forgot to mention that the mystery gray yarn is almost a full skein. I used only a tiny bit of it to fill in the top of a hat and it works up really well. I got it in a swap, too, so it's making its rounds!

    I can't wait to get my package!! :)

  2. Looking forward to your CAL! Nice gifts from swap, btw ;-)

  3. You got some great items in your swap. I will look forward to seeing what you create from the purple yarn. I've not worked with these types of yarns before.

    I also queued that apple cozy. And you know I won't use it, but it sure is cute! I save projects like that for when I really want to craft but don't want to do anything major. :-)

  4. Yes,...............Those dogs ae spoiled rotten. I'm also taking couple classes at a community college. Just waiting to transfer to get get my degree in BS. Major: Nursing.
