Of Cats and Dogs


The second poodle was finished today.  I used up the last of my black grunge on this guy.  I'm using the same black for all of the eyes and noses - used up the last of that strip.  The funky poms and ear - coffee beans and that is gone.  All of them will have the same Kona White background as it is a piece I need to move out of here.


In fact, I spent most of two days just cutting to gleen that black tote.  It was working backwards from my usual system to sort bags of scraps (large to medium to small to smallest) as I wanted to use up the smallest scraps first before heading into small and medium.  Larger pieces will only get cut into should I need them to fulfill the bricks and mini charm sizes, but I found another bag of black scraps!!!  I think it is mostly strings, but I will pull what is useable for those project as I have all the pieces cut for the poodles.  Now, if I can find that lid......


Bella is being borrowed next door as my Mom is having a mouse problem.  So I only have Moe who has been a bad boy.  We had some lovely spring like days and this guy did some neighborhood carousing and got in a scrap with someone.  I tried to get his injuries - cut down his nose and his left ear is has two 'tooth' marks from a bite.  He knows he is in the dog house with Momma, so won't look you in the eye or flash his wounds.

(linking up with Whoop, Whoop Friday and Feline Friday)

We are in for a very rainy weekend which will wash away all that snow and maybe do some low-land  flooding.  I have some serious housecleaning and clearing out to do.  Oh, and some sewing time as well.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  8. Such an adorable poodle block, Sharon--I grew up with a mini poodle named "Jou-Jou" (meaning toy in French). So, i love how this block looks. Lovely work hugs, Julierose

  9. Oh Moe - it's just not worth it buddy to get into it with the neighborhood ruffians. Z wasn't happy with me Saturday - he came in with 2 ticks and did not want me to pull them. He lashed out and my check swelled up but after 50 minutes I got those suckers. He acquiesced yesterday and let me pull a third in 30 seconds. Hopefully our boys will shape up eventually...but I'm not gonna hold my breath!

  10. Well I guess boys will be boys, but I bet he's sorry he's in trouble. But it doesn't sound like that will stop him the next time. You've made a lot of progress on working through those black scraps. Can't wait to see more of your poodles.
