Mid-Week Misc

Hey Everyone!  I'll try to concentrate as I write but I have to admit, I'm also watching the CMA's.  EEeeek, I'm so excited.  I've been waiting all week for this night. I've turned into a total Country Music lover. Not so much the twangy older music but it's the current music I can't stop listening to. I have a dream to make it to Stagecoach in the spring. {we'll see if that happens!}
On to sewing news. I bought a cute coin purse pattern from KEYKALOU shop on Etsy. I think they are so adorable and something everyone could use.  I've made a couple so far but still need to add to my shop.  Take a peak:
Owl Coin Purses
I know, my phone should remain my phone and not be my camera.  Sometimes it's so much easier to snap & send off to my computer since it's always in my pocket. Here's a shot of a few currently in progress.  Should be up this weekend.

  In other news, you may have heard me mention once or twice {or a million times} about my darling Italian Greyhounds. They are the most awesome little creatures ever! This past weekend we went to the Fall I.G. Play-date.  {Yep you read that right. We do play-dates for our fur babies}. One of the gals in the rescue group opens her home & back yard to us. Sometimes up to 40 or 50 adults and just as many I.G.'s. It's hard to resist rescuing just one of these precious pups! The dogs are real social and really enjoy hanging out with their own type. The adults get to hang out and enjoy great food and conversation.  Usually there is a raffle and money raised goes to help a specific pup in need.  It's really a wonderful organization and not limited to just California.  Take a look at this basket of donated items... a doggie bed, a doggie themed lined basket filled with scented tennis balls, pull toy, natural biscuits, shampoo, two red ceramic bowls, Paul Frank leash & matching martingale collar, to name a few.
Raffle Basket for Italian Greyhound Rescue
Isn't this a wonderful basket?  Guess who won?  Our little Abby and Mia won! They were so thrilled and couldn't wait to play with their new toys and use the pretty new bowls.  
We did have a little incident that day while at the gathering.  Mia {our "biggy-iggy} decided to walk right into the pool.  I happen to see the whole thing from the other side of the yard. I think she thought she could walk on water or something.  It happened so fast!  And with a big "Plop", Mia was in the water. Sinking fast. Everyone heard the noise and luckily, one of the Dad's went flat on the deck and reached for her. He missed the first time but was able to catch her collar the second time. I don't get it, the doggie paddle instinct never kicked in. You could see all four legs just hanging straight down and she was following! We laugh about it now but at the time, it was so scary. Mia didn't seem bothered by the mishap, she carried on the rest of the day like nothing happened. No spitting or sputtering either, so I presume she's a good breath-holder. 
That's all for now!  I hope to show off Christmas goodies in the very near future. Enjoy the rest of your week.
Until Next Time,
