Meet Sawyer


Hooray for writing a blog post and then not hitting publish. I wrote that last one Jan 7. Guess I really procrastinated on that too!

I got my loom warped in time for the workshop, and most of the dust bunnies cleared away.  I still have the warp on the loom or I’d take pictures. I want to do a little more designing myself before I cut it off.  I also finished the two tencel scarves that I copied from a friend. Pictures coming when I remember to take one during daylight. The next workshop is Crimp & Create with Dianne Totten.  Now that I’ve got the scarves off the loom I’ll be taking to the workshop, I can procrastinate winding the warp for that one.

One last trip for items donated to the guild. I brought back sewing supplies, a sewing machine, a rug loom or tapestry loom (I’m not quite sure which it is, or maybe it’s both), fabric, and more yarn. Our neighbor has a trailer so he was kind enough to take us there and haul the loom back so we didn’t have to take it apart.  Now to get everything cleaned up and out of our garage. Lizzie (my CRV) doesn’t like sitting outside all day and night *pout*

Last Saturday, our local animal shelter had an event.  Half price adoptions, vendors, a band, hot dog stand, and raffles. We have been talking about getting another dog for quite a while, always dithering back and forth about how the current pets would deal with another. Saturday, we met this guy

Sawyer

Bella, our GS mix, in the background, and a handwoven towel on the floor to the right haha. This is Sawyer, previously known as Milan, which sounded like Disney’s Mulan to us, which is not fitting for such a handsome man. The paper on his kennel said he is 1/2 Australian Shepherd and 1/2 German Shepherd, and he is 5 years old. We took him to his free vet checkup, especially since his first night here he started coughing, and the vet thinks he’s closer to 2 than 5. He got antibiotics for his kennel cough and is on the mend now.  We are dealing with some challenges but we believe he is a great dog.  We’ve been very spoiled with Bella from the moment we got her so these challenges are a learning experience for all of us.
