Photo Bomb Charlie and Amazing Grace Prayer Shawl…

Yesterday was the release of my Amazing Grace Prayer Shawl…. I had so much fun making it and thinking how it would bless someone’s shoulder’s when they are suffering or recovering from Breast Cancer.. or any Cancer…   When I finished it up and went outside to start the photo process… My trusted dog Charlie came with me… Just like he always does!

.

I set the prop up with the prayer shawl… And began to test lighting…  As usual Charlie wanted in on the action!  I (as always) told him to move out-of-the-way… and made sure he understood not to be in the pictures…Hmmmm

He is sneaky…I laughed once I saw the picture…But I wasn’t surprised!  He is 80 pounds of Boxer joy and wanted to help in his own way… Maybe he was trying to tell me the lighting was a little off… I hope this brings you a little laugh today…

If you haven’t seen the Amazing Grace Free Pattern Series, it is available in the pattern tab above… It is all about Breast Cancer Awareness and helping in any way I can!

Day 7 Knit & Crochet Blog Week – 4KCBWDAY7

.

Today is the last day of the Knit & Crochet Blog Week Challenge… I can’t believe I was able to post all 7 days!  It has been fun and I hope you enjoyed it too!  Our last assignment,,, Day 7,,, Is to talk about “Where we would like to be 1 year from now with our Crafting”…

I have already stretched myself this year by opening my blog and life up to all the world with my crochet… It has been a great experience so far…  But, my main goal in the next few months is to get my Etsy Store up and going… It isn’t so much the work it will take to get the store open,, Its more having enough crochet products  available…  Thanks to  my friends at our local store Alpine Originals, I sell many pieces each month there… So I will have to step up my game and get some things going for online sales… Who knows, all this crocheting could work into a full-time job at the rate I am going…

.

Since my topic for the last day is asking about the future, I didn’t have any pictures to post to go with the subject,,,, So, I though I would show you a few pictures from my life… Hope you enjoy!

Charlie!!

This is Charlie,,, My 3-year-old Boxer….  If you know anything about Boxers, you know they are stuck in puppy stage for life… Overly energetic, a bit hyper, statisticians, athletic and of course they think they are somewhere in the top of the hierarchy in the family!  Of course Charlie is all that and more!!!

Charlie, A Girl’s Best Friend!  He hangs out with me every chance he gets.   Sometimes a little to close!!… If I stop to do anything he is laying or sitting at my feet… I would trip and land very awkwardly… But by now,,, I always know he is there and just know how to move so I don’t go flying across the room…

This is Charlie just being an energetic Boxer… Running as fast as he can to me down the path of snow… Hoping I will give him a treat!

I say he is my best friend… But I think he has a lot of “best friends” in our house!  This is “his” cat-his other best friend..She loves him right back…

This morning he was so excited over the new snow and the prospect of digging around in it to find his bones…  He loves the snow!  He would spend all day running through the yard plowing through it with his floppy dog face…

.

Well, That’s my Charlie for now…  So here is to a girl having a faithful best friend!
