Hi gang! So, shall we start with cuteness, the finished object or the not so cute? I'm afraid if I start with cuteness I may lose you for the rest of the post. The finished object I'm saving for the end because most of you won't believe I actually finished something. So I guess we head right for the not so cute. This....this used to be an orderly stash room.
I found this when I got home Friday and went to find some yarn. I think it's time for another installment of "Stupid Conversations Had At My House."
Me: Why is my dining room in my stash room?
T: Cuz I moved it in there?
Me: You're an ass.
T: For moving the furniture?
Me: No..Well yes, but for giving me a stupid answer. Why did you move the furniture into my stash room?
T: Because we're ripping up the dining room carpet.
Me: Oh. Ummm...You're sister and her husband are due here next week.
T: Yeah, it's easier to rip up the carpet and claim construction than it is to try and clean the carpet.
Me: The carpet is so bad you'd rather rip it up, hoping there's a serviceable floor under it and claim construction??
Me: Are we that damn messy?
T: Penny was. When was the last time you looked behind the dining room table? She destroyed it!
Me: Ummm...well....behind, huh?
T: You're so observant.
Me: Piss off, dear.
So yeah, we're ripping up the dining room carpet. I guess. It didn't happen over the weekend so I guess my next few evenings will consist of...carpet ripping. I'm doing a lot of guessing here folks.
So anyway, on to the cuteness! I cornered Saoirse in the living room and demanded a picture of her saying her presence was requested. I got this.
Cold shouldered. By my own dog. If she could have reached me to bite me, she would have, y'all. Luckily, she is lazy and I would not step closer to her. I swear vengeance upon her come Wednesday when I get home and she and Alex are back from the groomers. Hee!
Now, this is where Tinker sleeps while I play on the computer. My cat is retarded.
He sleeps on my left foot. Under my desk. Alex sleeps on my right foot. I have living slippers. This will rock in the winter time if it ever comes to Texas. Until then, I am dying with the hot feet.
Moving on past the cuteness.....move on, people. Come on, get off the pictures already. I am dangling a finished object in front of you. Yarny goodness. Wanna see?
It's a dog bone mat! For the babies' water bowl cuz they are messy drinkers. This thing is fully washable and it's acrylic. I really don't care how messed up it gets because I can whip out another one in a day or two! I used blue, green and white to match my kitchen. The pattern was found on the Crochetville forums and was designed by Andrea Wallace.
I finished something! Now I need to move chairs so I can get to my stash because I know a few people who need one of these for their furry beasties. I just need to know colors folks or I'll just make it "bone" color. Anyone want one? I like making these. E-mail me. Seriously. I wanna make you people dog bone mats. Now.
*Ahem* Sorry. Obsessive. I'll go take my meds now. Hee!
