... pretty, isn't he?

yeah...and he's all mine.

I don't know if he'll ever be white again...

On another note...
Remember in a previous post that I mentioned a

Hiya dear Lori ...

Hmmm.. wonder if I could fit into my son's suitcase when he goes back to Kentucky for his 2nd year at College... failing that, maybe the exchange rate will dramatically increase...LOL...

Oh, and by the way....I just LOVE your fabby pup... he is gorgeous..and by the looks of him..mischievous as well...LOL

Hmm, I'm thinking I lived closer! Sounds like a wonderful event.
Love the pic's of the dog. All that hair, oh my! Maybe the sun will bleach it back lol.

Rosie said...

Oh I wish I lived nearer! The pup certainly looks like he enjoyed himself! Have you whispered the word bath in his ear?
Oh my material arrived on thursday, what a complete difference its making to myu punching. Will be back for more!

Cinlyn said...

I know that look!...it's like "what?...what did I do?" LOL...
The gathering sounds wonderful!! I wish I were closer where I could be a part of it...as a vendor & a shopper!! I've often thought about hosting one myself...we have THE perfect spot for it here on our farm! Maybe one of these years!

Ya gotta love that sweet Buddy-boy!! My pup isn't muddy but she IS cranky because she can't get out much to play.
I'll talk to you next weekend about your show. It really sounds like fun!!

Hi Lori - I'm a fan of your hooked patterns - doing Merrie Halloween now - I am going to the ATHA rug hooking national in Louisville around that time - Maybe I can plan a side trip to visit your gathering - sounds fabulous.

Hi Lori,

I've been wanting to visit your shop for the longest time. Autumn is my favorite season and Halloween is my favorite holiday! I'm making my plans to visit the gathering on Set. 19th. What a wonderful way to begin my favorite time of the year!
