A Bed And Two Dogs

For my birthday, my sister and my two girls bought me a new sewing machine. WOO HOO! Today was rainy and yucky, so I decided to do some sewing and test this baby out! While going through my things, I came across an old dinosaur w/sneakers comforter that all three of our kids used while growing up. They all LOVED IT! It was ripped and worn in spots, but I didn't have the heart to get rid of it.

As I was trying to figure out what do do with it, I went into the kitchen and this is what I saw...

Notice her look. . . .


Right then I knew what I had to do. So, I grabbed some pretty flowery girlie fleece I had and I started cutting and sewing.

As soon as I was finished, I laid Pheobe's new bed on the floor. No sooner had she laid down, she started snoring! Lol

Awwww. . . . .we just love our little princess!

Oh, how cute is that! Of course every doggie needs their own bed.
How nice that you got a new sewing machine for your birthday! I'm sure you'll put it to good use!
Have a great day! :)

I have a NEW sewing machine too - it's a Singer Curvy ... I LOVES it - don't they stitch nicely? I had an olde White machine that was 10+ years old and you could hear it coming a mile away even after fixing/adjusting it.
Hey - GREAT bed for the doggie. :) Snoring LOL!
love you!
