.... Each Day

I solved my hooking dilemma of Miss Abby tearing at the burlap.  We came to a bit of a .....compromise.   She watches from her pen.   There are 3 stages.  Here is anger and dismay
Then comes woe and despair
And finally, sweet acceptance.   Lol. This way I can hook and she can still be near me.
The result of all of this is that I finally finished hooking this piece .  It was driving Saundra crazy trying to guess what the first word was as I hid it from previous post pictures   I didn't do it intentionally but then it just became fun.  (Sorry Saundra)   So here it is  
I feel like I want to finish this one with a whipped edge but so far have not located my stash of whipping yarn.  In truth I haven't looked all that hard  lol   I woke up this morning exhausted.  I just lazed around all day in my Jammie's   It was an almost perfect Sunday except for being so tired I could barely get out of my own way.   Abby was equally energetic (thankfully) 
Isn't she beautiful?  And I'll leave you with one other thing of beauty. I think I've finally mastered the art of the cinnamon roll.  
Well, this batch anyway.  I tweaked the recipe a little as my dough didn't seem to have enough body.  ( doesn't it sound like I know what I'm talking about?)  I reduced the milk by a smidge and it made the dough roll out better.  Abby has her 4 month needle tomorrow and she will get weighed again.  I'm anxious to see how much my chunky monkey has gained.  And Tuesday night she goes to her first day of school.  Yay!!


  1. Love it ! Lord I had to whip the edges I only do it once in awhile. I did get out of the pjs and I did some house work but not all that much. I love a rainy Sunday now and then.

  2. Sweet, sweet pictures of your furbaby. I'm glad you came up with a solution :)
    Your rug is adorable!!! I've barely pulled a loop but this Thursday I'm off to a hooking retreat for a few days. I can't wait, but if I can get my act together, it will be nothing short of a miracle. I don't plan ahead like that I was dyeing wool today for the rug I think I want to work on...subject to change, of course.
    Hugs :)

  3. Sweet rug, sweet Abby, and the cinnamon roll looks yummy!

  4. Lovely Mat!!! I love those pictures, she is just so cute. I hope you feel better tomorrow.

  5. Love that third stage! Almost as much as homemade cinnamon rolls but not quite.

  6. I think all of us needs a day to spend in our PJ's and so do our furry friends. I think they enjoy it as much as we do. Ah Abby - that face melts your heart!
    Cinnamon rolls are looking great and so is your rug!

  7. Love the rug! Sending good wishes to Miss Abby for her visit to the vet. The next time you make cinnamon rolls, let me know! They are worth a trip across the many miles between here and there! xo Nellie

  8. You do like to torture me don't you? Those cinnamon buns look picture perfect and bet they were taste perfect too, congrats. Liking your mat finish...almost finish and of course your sweet Abby.
