I have an excuse!

I swear, I swear, there is a reason I have been away for so long! It has feathers, and is multicoloured!

She is a female Jenday conure. Two years old and quite full of herself. She is a rescue! Should I change the blog title to Foolishness, Fluff & Feathers? (That is a joke, I am not changing it, you can't make me!)

I forgot to update on Monday! I suck, I know. So, to make up to you I am doing an extra long post. I was asked, in a comment on the last post, How I do the needlefelting. This is a post to show you/

I start with one smiley poodle, some roving (mostly wool, but the pink is an aplaca blend) a needlefelting tool that holds three needles and some styrafoam(not shown).

I then start to form the cupcake base. I decided to make this yellow cake, but I originally wanted to do chocolate, hence the brown above. Anyway, I stab the wool and sculpt it until I have something roughly cupcake shaped.
Sort of like this... Then I keep going until I make it harder and more firm.

In the picture below, I have firmed the bottom and added the dome.

A critical part of this process is a dog snuggling on your knee.
 Next, add the top layer, once again poking with the barbed needles.
 And TADA! All done! Isn't it cute?

Crafty Friday!

Yeah... I just made that up. But TODAY is Crafty Friday! Does Crafty Friday have a theme song? I don't think so. Bonus points if you some up with one. Anyway, my crafts be here:

Aren't they cute?

Monday, Wednesday, and sometimes Friday...

So... I did the BEDA thing right? and after that I was like a high school student on Spring break. FREEEEDOMMMMMMMMMMMM! Unfortunately, my blog was left behind on this Commitment Free Month... though I am never completely commitment free, I am still doing the 52 Weeks project. So I VOW to update this blog on Mondays, Wednesdays, and I am going to try for Fridays as well. I SAID try! If I don't feel free to come up with some punishment. Seriously, feel free.

Last weekend Lola had an Agility trial. It was her firs AKC trial and she Q'ed in Standard. Woot! Here is the obligatory Ribbon Pic


I also got her 52 weeks picture that at the trial

Is it our turn yet? 39/52
I also met a fellow dogster there, which was cool. She was really nice and had a sweet little merle sheltie!

I also have a video of our Q run, I will post that when I find my video camera. I have some other pics to post, but I will let this one stand as a trial post.

See you Friday!

Week 38 and an Agility Trial

Those are my toes, and of course Lola's. I think it is something different, an I rather like it. That is week 38.

This weekend we have a trial in Alpharetta, GA. Wish us luck!
