Pets at Work



This is a typical morning in my studio with Bennett my cat and Buddy my yellow lab. As you can see they are hard at work helping me sew and create! My ironing board is constantly covered with black fur and I am thinking of taking up stock in lint rollers. This is the lesser of two evils though; the other being laying right on top of my latest project. How he escapes getting straight pins in his paws is beyond me.
Buddy is my 88lb baby who unfortunately lays right in the middle of the room. This is fine while I am working on the computer, but once I need to start cutting and sewing, moving around can get hazardous. I don't only mean hazardous because of the scissors and rotary cutter I am holding, but hazardous because of his gas problem. God forbid he eats anything other than his food, and the dog is a farting machine. In a small room, its a wonder I haven't passed out and hit my head on something. It really is bad and can actually bring tears to your eyes. But, we love him even though he is lucky he's good looking!
It's another beautiful but hot day here in eastern PA. Here is hoping Hannah will turn out to sea and not damage our beloved Outer Banks!

Hi Barb, what a sweet 88lb baby. Mine is a little frou-frou bichon frise. She gets underfoot, too. We just dodged a bullet here in Mississippi with Gustav. I hope you all do as well. I am adding your blog to my list!
