couldn't wait


had to begin at least a little. other things needing to be finished, but i couldn't wait. the wheat colored

i have needed something for this futon couch for a long time. it's the dogs'. they are neurotic about it.
in warm weather i put a sheet over the cushion, in cold, a wool blanket. i almost never sit there because

so, again...thank you. it is such a good feeling to see your comments appear. and also come to know each
of you more and more by the exchange.

much love and appreciation to you

Your cover is going to be fantastic! It's the same way at my house, the minute I sit on the couch I have both dogs keeping me company. That's a really important stage with your raven....

Aahhhh... I have four dogs also so I know what you mean. One of ours is a rottweiller X rhodesian ridgeback who weighs approx. 40kg so when he comes to join you...there aint much room left.
I am liking the look of your new futon cover (and I'm sure the dogs will too).
Lovely to join you on your blog.

writing on your blog about a denim

attempt such a thing...

taught me a Lot.

And you have a very 'warm' and 'inquisitive' presence my friend... and yes, I do love Leroys feet. When I get home I will post a photo of him for you...the most gentle, loving soul.
