This weekend included Doggie Chores. Beez needed a bath and a haircut.... and before you can do that he has to be combed. Beez is a big boy who weighs in over 60# with a very thick coat. It took several hours to comb him and then wet and bath him. When that part was done I had this:
Mr. Clean but way shaggy for a poodle...almost sheepy looking.
Multiple cookies and new clippers in hand I ended up with this:
So then we *had* to go on a walk....for he really was a good boy and held still for me for about 2 hours while I clipped and scissored until I was happy. And *no* I don't felt his hair...and hair it is, not dog fur and it mats (read felts) but as I don't clip him looking to save his coat you can see it is very short bits.
I also managed to do a bit of sewing in the evening to work on the squares.
I'm OK with the Prairie Clover but it is not as I visualized.
The next is better...
The Bleeding Heart....the leaves were tricky but I was happy with the coloring.
I think the color is truer in the close up.
And finally ... at least for today....my favorite for this weekend...
The Beach Rose....or Rosa Rugosa.
The color is not as nice here as the real item....that is the felted item...
So, that was most of my weekend and although it is only 8:30pm here in Rhode Island....I'm headed to bed.
