Yippee! The scarf sets are finished! And I'm sure you'll agree that Pam
did the best job on her set. I love it!

Oh and there's one detail I need to mention...I've been asked about the crocheted flower on the hat. Yes, I actually did that myself and I am NOT a crocheter. Here's the book I used for the instructions and believe me--if I can make that flower, your dog could make that flower.
It's been a busy time around here...so many distractions to keep me from keeping up with things. Got an email yesterday letting me know that a certain Miss Chelsea
has run out of patience waiting for pictures of my new little distraction.
So for Chelsea and everyone else, meet Jane!
Jane is 11 months old and is part Chihuahua and part, uh, ummm...any thoughts?
I am totally NOT a tiny dog person. If someone had told me that someday a dog with even a molecule
of Chihuahua blood would be living in my house I'd have told them they're crazy.
My youngest son Jeff and I had gone to a pet rescue place in San Jose looking for a particular dog we'd seen online. When we got there, we were told the dog had already been adopted and that her new owner was on her way to pick her up. Sigh. But next to that cage was Jane. She put her little paws up on the bars of her cage and whimpered. That was all it took.
I've been in contact with her previous owner and know quite a bit of her history. She'd been taken away from her mother at 3 weeks of age and had been abused. She was a wreck when her previous owner adopted her. Over time she became a loving, devoted dog to her owner but was terrified of men. All men.
Seems like maybe our house is the wrong place for such a little girl? Well, no! Jane's absolute favorite person on the planet is Jeff. She adores him and it's awesome to see my shaggy-headed, metal band tshirt wearing kid melt when she cuddles up to him.
She's still nervous around my husband and son Nick, but is making progress. And I can say that she's the sweetest little bundle of love I've ever seen.
As you can see, she likes arranging her bat ears in different poses. And yes, she already has her own quilt (but more on that later!)
