I am playing Hardanger this week. I am working on this ornament from the 2003 Ornament Issue of JCS. While it is pretty, I will admit that the buttonhole stitch is one of my unfavoritist ever. Okay, not a word, but you catch my drift. Kloster blocks and eyelet stitch are no problem. It is the edge of the buttonhole stitch that bugs me and trying to get it even.
I made it over to Target tonight. There is still a lot of Christmas stuff in stock even though it is 50% off. I think there are a lot of reasons for this. Anyway, I was there to pick up dish soap, and wandered past the dog stuff on the end cap. They had a little Christmas dog toy set with six toys on clearance for $4.99. I brought it home and Liesl thought it was Christmas all over again. She loves toys and usually does a victory lap when she gets a new one. She is so happy.
It is supposed to freeze tonight. I have the extra blanket at the ready and expect that Liesl will be waking me up at some point to lift her onto the bed. I am looking forward to dog cuddles. I shudder though to think of what my yard looks like after the ice gets to it. I am also wondering why the weeds are impervious to ice. Oh, well, it was a good evening for a cup of hot cocoa, and I was pretty happy that I had my homemade marshmallows to put into it.
Gotta go tuck in the furry princess...
