What I have been working on..

a rug of our dog, Daisy.  Here is the rug with Daisy hooked and a bit of adapting.  The pattern is by Margo White named Dog with Flowers and is 22" x 36". 

I wanted her name in the rug so decided to not hook the flowers over her back and put in her name.  Then I thought the flowers should be daisies so I redrew the flowers.

I am really happy with the way Daisy has turned out.  I especially love how her ear is!

The other photo worthy thing I did this month was I baked a blackberry pie.  I like baking pies but I never am able to get the crust rolled out without it pulling apart and just other wise looking like a 3 year old made it - my baker Grandpa would not be proud of my attempts.  This month's pie though came together awesomely.  I took a picture before I baked it because I was so proud and shocked at the result.  Almost looks good enough to be in a cookbook.  Grandpa would be proud of this one!  :)
