Doxie Sox in Misery


This is my latest creation. I tried to get a close up of the bling on his neck. It is actually a bracelet. I bought a bunch of them ....... at some point in time.


I found them in my massive re-do of my sewing lair and thought they would make a fine little collar. This one is green glitter and is a perfect match to the sock. I suppose a contrast would show up better.

Finally downloaded the pictures off my camera last night. Had to have my son's help. Seems that I am not the only one who HATES Windows 8. Windows 8 is not compatible with Nikon cameras. What used to be an easy task now has several steps. I still have not figured out how to edit the shots. At one point last night I had a slide show going that I could not stop. Filled the entire screen and kept going and going. Had to sign out to make it stop!


This cabinet is full of fabric. This one holds knit fabrics. The bins on top hold batting and small pieces of t-knits. There are two more big cabinets that hold my cotton prints. I have 12 file boxes with scraps for doll clothes and 8 big plastic bins of flannels and fleeces and stuff I don't know that I will ever use, but cannot bear to part with. The tall skinny shelf is turned sideways and has bins with current projects in them ( hey, I get distracted!). I turned it sideways so I could mount the dowel with ribbons on the side. Too bad it won't hold all my spools (they were on sale!).

So, that is what winter hermits do in the middle of no where, in the great state of Missouri (pronounced misery). I actually heard a newscaster pronounce Missouri as misery just the other morning. Probably a student and I have not seen her back on the morning news since. Maybe she decided to go in a different direction ....

All those cabinets filled with sewing goods! You are indeed industrious. Your state of misery made me laugh and I too hope the young broadcaster has moved on.

Since I am an Apple aficionado, I told my husband about your Windows 8 Missouri, I mean misery. He said that is possible. Old cameras and new software do not mate well.

Oh, windows 8.
Please disregard anything I may have told you...
The little doggies are darlins.

I hate, you hate, we all scream our hate for Windows 8. We got it at school last year. Nothing like going around your elbow to get to your thumb.

A cabinet full of fabric? Something tells me I'm going to see a doggie made out of my shirt material one of these days.

I could snuggle in with a bunch of material and spend my winter this way, too. Your doxie socks are a cute creation.
