Lace Class

I just finished a Lace Class with Karen Ruane
We learned to create lace pieces with free form machine sewing
which is then embellished with embroidery.

This piece is about half done.
It needs lots more French Knots and more buttonhole stitching.
The class is over, but she will offer it again.
Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet . . .
Next time I'll show the second piece on scrim, which is like cheesecloth.

Love, Linda

Duke here . . .

Can you believe what mom THREW OUT???
A Peanut Butter Jar!!
I got it out right away!
Mom started to come and get it, but I growled.
(I wagged my tail at the same time to show no hard feelings).
Wow, there was LOTS of peanut butter in here!
 To get the good stuff all the way in the bottom,
 I had to make my tongue VEEEEERY LOOOONG.
 (I don't understand what was so funny to mom).
Finally I couldn't reach any more . . . now what??
I really didn't want to put my whole face in, but I tried and tried,
 there was no other way.
I really have to keep up on the trash inspections from now on -
I wouldn't want to miss the next peanut butter jar!!
Love, Duke

A thunderstorm

It got verrrry dark

After the thunder and pouring rain, the sun came out!
Salad is coming up!
Duke prefers sun to thunder!
Love, Linda
