Crafts and Dogs

I like to craft. Whether it is knitting, crocheting, quilting, sewing or writing. I always have to be creating something. Even when I’m trying to put together the next book, I have to craft with my hands and not just with my mind.
At Christmas, I made the new puppy a crocheted bed. She loves it. Now it’s going to need a cloth cover after she managed to get the thing caught on her collar tags. Poor thing was chased about the room by the bed that was stuck in her collar.
Traumatized. Nope, she still sleeps on the bed. Now she tends to flip it up out of the way when she’s done with it. I never knew a dog would want a Murphy bed.DSCF0327
Right now, I’m crocheting a zig zag blanket. Colors are red, white with the border color black as an accent between color change rows. It’s looking pretty sharp.

I have another project I want to give a jab at. It’s using a loom my mother bought way back in the 80’s. We found the loom recently and couldn’t remember how to start the thing even. I even suggested to mom, that she should try closing her eyes and see if she could remember the hand motion she had used when she made all the placemats years ago. She had no luck. The loom once again went back into storage under the stairs.
This might change though. Tonight I came across a video showing how to use the darn thing. I had watched the video the manufacturer had posted a year ago and it didn’t help, but this one was much better.
