Yes. He's a schnoodle (schnauzer/poodle). My DD got him as a rescue about eight years ago when she was living in Seattle, but she couldn't keep him in her apartment so he ended up here with me and Willow (shiba inu). Willow passed last year, so it's just me and Stevie now, growing old together.

Hi KatyNora! How are you doing? I have just been messing about with this handbag I'm making, only have the lining, zip and a few more embellishments to do. Do you thing it's elegant enough for a wedding?
I'm well, thank you. The autumn weather is beginning to settle in on us, so I'm anticipating some cozy knitting time this week. Of course, that will depend a lot on my dog, Stevie, who likes to take over my lap when I sit in the big chair. I do love my knitting, but I love Stevie too.
Your handbag is lovely and reminds me of spring. I assume it's color-coordinated to your outfit for the wedding. Will you post a picture for us when you're all dressed up?
You're doing better than me. I don't think I've completed a single pullover or cardigan for me. I have too much startitis and not enough finishitis. :)
LOL! I didn't know there were "proper" medical terms for our knitting conditions. I think I'm the same as you. :lol:
Daralene, I'm so sorry to read of your mother's passing, but grateful that you and your sisters and your son were all together for her and for each other.
that's it - and you are right - they do have a lot of yarn - is that where we bought that multi-colored green/orange mohair that you made into a scarf and i have about four inches of mine done. lol --- sam --- one of he lovely things about seattle is that it is such a walkable city - so easy to get around.
We have gotten so many beautiful yarns over the course of your visits that I really don't remember for sure where they all came from, but it sure has been fun acquiring them. :lol:
i know which one you are thinking of - can't think of it's name either - i have several hanks of yarn from there. --- sam
I only made it to the one by Pike Market, but I loved that one! I can't remember the name of it, but I am sure you know it, Sam.
I think the shop in the Market is called So Much Yarn -- and they're not kidding!! :D
if you need any ideas for seattle let me know - you could even meet up with katynora (am i right on that?) - and have a mini yarn hop - there are several lovely shops in seattle. --- sam
Absolutely!! And I'm pretty sure we could convince Miss Pam to join us as well. :D Just let us know when you're coming, Poledra, and we'll roll out the red carpet.
Welcome home, Londy. I'm glad you made it home safely.
Everyone's so busy it's hard to keep up! Welcome little Ellia Dae, and welcome home to Purly. I'm glad to hear you're on the road to recovery. And Saxy, it's good that Sarah was able to bring little Hunter to the memorial luncheon. It seems to me that the presence of a new life so much a part of the airshow family would be a comfort to folks who had been there at the time of the crash. Safe travels home, Londy. It sounds like it's been a wonderful trip, but I know it's good to come home too.
I had a busy Labor Day weekend. Friends came over a couple of times to help me clear a load of dead wood out of the back yard. On Sunday, we went to the local "Taste of..." festival and tried foods from different area restaurants -- Thai, Italian, BBQ, and homemade ice cream, all quite tasty. Yesterday I went to knitting at the LYS, misread my pattern, and managed to mess up the lace on the shawl I'm making. Agggghhhhh!!! Thank heaven for lifelines! It's back on the needles now but a good deal shorter than it was when I sat down to knit. I think I may put lifelines in more frequently from now on. :cry:
Hi everyone hope you have had a good day, except G... (
Baby cuddles are the best thing ever, aren't they? I'm sorry your friend's cousin is ill, but it's good that you got to spend time with her, and that you have those happy memories.
Melody, you and your friend and her DH are all in my thoughts and prayers. May you find peace in your love for each other.
VA Sharon, I understand your concern about getting things sorted out. My DD lives in New York and step-DD in Montana, so I hope to have things well under control before the burden falls to either of them.
Julie, I'm glad you were able to have a good talk with Bronwen, and I'm impressed with how well they handled teaching the children about loss when they knew the family pet was ill.
i get about 200 emails a day - 90% of them are recipe related. --- sam
Good Grief, Sam!! How do you ever have time for knitting -- or anything else?
Thanks for another tasty opening, Sam. I don't cook much, but it sure is fun to see all the goodies you come up with. And thanks to all three summary ladies for keeping track of all the happenings.
Happy Birthday, Kate!! Not sure of the time zone difference from here to Gran Canaria, so I hope I haven't missed the actual day.
A celebration was held in Nova Scotia for the Merchant Navy on Sept 3, 2014, but only 30 of the old sailors showed. The rest were either too old to make it or are no longer with us. They put up a display at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Nova Scotia. They said at that time that that was their last celebration.
There is also a plaque in Burlington here in Ontario, as a lot of the boats came from the Burlington harbour.
I'm sorry they couldn't continue the Nova Scotia observance, but it's good they had it, and impressive there were so many veterans there nearly 70 years after the war.
