That Darned Butt Spot ~

 

I thank everyone for their input on the butt spot.  I decided to change the shape just a little and color-wise make it less obvious.  I also skinnied up his back leg.  Woo hoo!  It is already bound with some wonderful, chunky wool from Ali Strebel.  I love her wool for binding rugs.  I think he's sweet if I do say so myself :)
 
I am so not a party girl and hate asking people to buy something from me, but my son's girlfriend just started selling Arbonne products and asked if I'd have a spa party.  I almost said no but thought that very rude, so tomorrow is the day.  I hope she has a successful evening.
 
This weekend will be another busy one . . . sigh.  One antique show, one fall festival and working the Ohio Pug Rescue booth at the Oberlin, Ohio Doggie Do.  That should about take care of my weekend.  But next week, I have ME TIME.  A hooking retreat in Lakeside, Ohio.  3+ days of hooker fun.  I am so looking forward to it.  I went last year and it was wonderful.  Hookers are the nicest people!!!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

I purchased 3 different variegated colored skeins of Ali's wool as well as a skein of dreads wool. Loving Ali's class and your crazy friends. Don't believe all the rumors they say about me.

Having fun and will post on my blog when I get home. Hugs.

I don't like those selling party's either. You always feel like you "have" to buy something you don't want or need. Seems like everyone is selling Arbonne these days. I envy your upcoming hookers weekend.

You are a busy lady. I love the cat any way. You do such perfect hooking and that cat has such a contented look on its face. I think it likes the spot now too. :)

I'm late making my rounds this evening. Your kitty rug looks lovely as is.

I had never heard about that product and looked it up on line. I don't use beauty product and it's too late any way for anti aging cream, lol.

I hate product selling parties and never go to any of them any more. You're a good sport for going ahead with this Spa party.
Have fun at your 3 day hook in.
Hugs,
JB
