Mom's 2nd Vallance

I think I got caught up on reading blogs. Some of you have been having fun, some of you have been getting in some trouble and Mom and I were so sad to hear about poor Charlie. That's still hard to believe!
This is mom's second sewing project. It's in her bathroom and is not easy to get a picture of. You'll probably notice an outdoor theme going on in our house. So far there's a fish theme going on with Mom's curtains and that's because those are the only outdoor themed fabrics she could find so far. There is a bear one at Walmart that might work for the bedroom, but she hasn't decided yet.
If Mom knew more about sewing, she'd open her own fabric store! There's one in town, but it's more for quilters and Mom said she looked through their entire store and didn't like much of anything and the owner was a rude......we'll just say she was not very nice to Mom. Hobby Lobby is almost an hour away and Mom didn't like what they had. She was kind of frustrated that Walmart had better choices than Hobby Lobby AND the fabric store! So until she can find some more fabric she likes, more sewing projects are on hold. Mom has an old baby bassinet that she slept in when she was a baby that she wants to change the lining and fix up and she's pretty sure she found the fabric to use on that so maybe I'll have that to share with you. She's hoping she'll get to show you more curtains instead though.
I think Aunt Gillian just pulled up in front of my house so I better go bark. I love barking at her like I don't know who she is!!! Maybe some day she'll get the hint she needs to come visit me more often - probably not though. Mom says when my aunt was younger, she fell off a horse (not Mom's fault, she was at work) and ER doctors had to do a brain scan to make sure her brain didn't didn't fall out in the dirt and Mom is pretty sure some of the wires got unhooked during the fall. I don't think that's a very nice thing to say about your sister, but sometimes I think Mom is right!!! Good thing I love both of them!

Seriously my mom says stuff like that about her sister too. But I can't say much since I make fun of Peanut that way.

Your mom is doing a great job making your house look beautiful! Have fun with your aunt; I hope she gives you lots of attention, Kaos!

Moco said...

Tell your mom to keep sewing. She will find the right material soon. Garage sales are some times good places to pick up material.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oooh.. our mom would like to invite your mom to come and stay with us so that she can help us work on the curtain that dear Hershey chewed up!!
Hope you had fun with your Aunty Gillian!



Mommy agrees with your Mom....Who cares that MV cried in prison. He didn't suffer near as much.

Uoi know I'm spotlighting doggies with flowers and sure would like to spotlight you so can your Mom send my Mom a picture.
