ON THE HOOK

Ginny’s Patronus Cloak continues to grow……

This cloak may be my biggest crochet project ever, with this kitchen window valance running a really close second.

 

and, if you’ve kept up with me over the last few weeks, you remember our new four legged resident here at Casa  Coleman – Dixie

 Being the puppy she is, some of my fiber and several needles and hooks have taken it on the chin,  necessitating the purchase of replacements.  I got lucky this weekend when I went to buy replacement hooks and found this nice set of Boye ergonomics on sale at Wal-Mart.  I prefer wooden needles/hooks, but until Dixie gets over her appetite for wood, I’ll be sticking with something a little sturdier. 🙂

NEW KID IN TOWN

Meet Dixie, the newest addition to Casa Coleman…..

 

Dixie came home to us on Sunday, 7/22 from a local rescue outfit, Out of the Woods Animal Rescue.  She is five months old and is of unknown parentage, but we suspect a bit of hound, maybe a touch of boxer, along with a tiny amount of pit bull, with some terrier thrown in for good measure, from the look of her ears.  She is awesome, calm and smart (we started “sit” and leash walking yesterday and she caught on quickly. 👏👏👏

Moving along, it’s been a long time since we had a puppy and we haven’t had to cope with the chewing, curiosity and regular trips outside to nail down the housetraining thing. 💦💦💦 She’s done really well with that, no accidents in the house yesterday, hoping the same for today. BUT……I’d forgotten that anything on the floor or within her reach is fair game, finding this when I let down  my puppy destructiveness guard –

Yikes!

I did get it all sorted out and rewound,  but it took a LONG time. 🙂

and this

This used to be a size 1 circ…☹️

Again totally my fault for not retrieving fallen objects and leaving things within snouts reach.  Lucky for me, I’m still trainable. I think.
