A Spiffy New Collar

Molly got a spiffy new collar today, from the pattern in Bend The Rules Sewing. I've had that book from Bookswim for so long now, I think I must buy it. Great stuff in there. I re-purposed the clip from the Disneyland lanyards we get every year with our vacation package. I even used the metal clip to make a lanyard for myself. Now I match the dog. Could I be that much of a goob? Don't answer.

This is Oreo. He came to us via a wonderful local rescue group, HARP. He is adjusting to life in the Maupin household, and he is one serious love bug. He gets so relaxed when you pet him that he'll actually fall over, but look out when the feather wand is near! He was very curious about the camera, and wasn't too interested in holding still for a nice, posed shot. This was one of the few non-blurry pictures. He is really bonding with Madeline, and runs up to greet her when she gets home from school. That's exactly what we had hoped for. Now if he'll just stop walking over my keyboard...

Yes, I have finally finished a painting. I started this in May, I think. The background sat around forever. Yet another heart, I know, but what can I say? I'm obsessed.  Let's just call it a series. That doesn't sound so crazy.
