New Project

We have found that no matter how hard we try to keep Sophi off the couch that for the time being its a losing battle, especially when we leave her home alone. The advantage is she doesn't scratch up our couch she just likes to curl up into a ball and go to sleep. John suggested that I make a blanket out of fleece for her to lay on. So last week I went to Hancock Fabrics which had all their fleece on sale for 50% off and bought enough to make this blanket and two coats for Sophi. I finished the blanket today. I took two yards of fleece, cut them in have and then just tied the two halves together by cutting strips. It was an easy project and she loves it. I hope to make the jackets this week. Some of you may say why are you making clothing for your dog? Well shes very tiny, lived in Las Vegas for most of her 4 years so shes not used to our colder weather. And its cheaper to make them than to buy them. Espeically since she doesn't like the sweaters. So far the only thing she doesn't fight wearing is a fleece jacket we bought her so I have taken on this challenege and will post pictures when Im done.
Sophi is a wonderful addition to our home. Shes very loving and so far only one accident and that was the first night. Johns working on training her a little more and so far its going good.
Love you all. Have a great day.
