Speaking of foster babies, I'm
If you recall, the little girl was already adopted when she came to crash at our house for 5 days until her family could pick her up. That was probably a good thing, because she sure was a cuddlebug! And look at those little feet.... squeeeeeeee
Addie was not shy at all and made friends with all of the Lapdogs. I adore this first shot of her and Tut...
Addie always seemed to have to keep a paw on Sophie when they napped. I don't know if it was a security thing or not, but it sure was cute!
Little Addie was constantly trying to get big foster brother Zeus to play with her.
Lazy Mama Lola was caught snoozing with little Addie alot, but my favorite moment was when I caught all 3 girls in a pig-pile snooze fest!
It was a pleasure to have Addie here with us for a short time until her forever Mom could pick her up. Here's a few more cute shots that I just have to share...
Here's a shot of Addie in the car on the way to meet her forever Mom. I always send our fosters home with something from their stay with us (she took her favorite chew bone), but boy was I surprised when Addie's Mom showed up with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for me! It was so touching and very special...
Addie's Mom has kept us up to date on her progress and has been sending photos (I'll share some in an upcoming foster update). The little tyke is doing very well and has already grown a bunch! She has 2 human siblings at home that she loves to entertain as well.
Now that you've all got your puppy fix for today, guess what? I actually have something for Fiber Arts Friday two weeks in a row! No, not another FO (not yet anyway), but a little LYS visit. While I had purchased goodies from the wonderful ladies at The Elegant Ewe several times before at various fiber festivals and events, I had yet to actually visit the store... until Monday. You see, I had a job interview and was pleasantly surprised when I realized the company was was just down the road from a yarn shop! If I were to land that job, I'd definitely have a lunch time perk, don't ya think?
Of course I had to shop, although just a little bit since I'm on a very frugal unemployed budget these days. After
While I was winding up the yarn earlier today, I also wound up this gorgeous handspun, hand dyed pale faced Leicester. Tut thought it was pretty irresistible too.
This little pit of purple heaven was a gift from the inlaws when they traveled to Ireland last fall (it's from Spin A Yarn and is marked from sheep of Johnstown co. Dublin). They brought back a Guinness bottle opener for Matt and I got yarn (Mom-Sue is good like that!). I've been eyeing it for months now, looking for just the right project... but so far I'm stumped. It's thick and thin, so I'm thinking either a scarf or cowl, but there's no yardage on the label. Any pattern or project ideas out there?
Enjoy your weekend... and don't forget to enter my contest to win a $25 gift certificate from Calico Dragon Bags if you haven't already! I know you sure could use a new bag for spring after all...
