This is the completed back and two front panels of the sweater I started a few weeks ago. Thanks to the terrible weather we have been having, I have had lots of snow day and indoor time to work on it. I think I am close enough to finishing that I won't get bored and give up. I really like the pale pink color too. As long as I don't hit any roadblocks with the collar or button bands, I should be able to wear it in a few weeks.

My friend Kathy is at it again, dressing up her dog Patrick for a holiday. I'd be his valentine in a heartbeat! I will be getting a new granddog in about two weeks, McDonwald a Scottish Deerhound. I personally think he should have been a Clumber Spaniel, but the way Colleen convinced her husband to let her get a dog was that this breed does not shed. If his personality is as sweet as his cousin Wolfie the Borzoi, who currently lives on our farm, he will be an amazing addition to our creature community!

Every year at this time I get an uncontrollable urge to knit. This is the start of this year's project. I got an email promotion from Craftsy for an online video class to make a sweater. I made a sweater a few years ago but it only had short sleeves. I hope I can sustain my interest to complete it. I bought the light pink yarn so I could wear it in the Spring and not give up on it when the weather started to warm up.

Even though I detest New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, this picture makes me smile. This is my friend Kathy's Jack Russell Terrier named Patrick. He allows her to dress him up and take his picture for every holiday. He could be the follow up to William Wegman's Weimeraners. I had a weimeraner some years ago and he would no way let me dress him up let alone pose for pictures!

This is the finished top of the 30s reproduction fabrics quilt. I thought I had enough fat quarters to start with but had to buy more and pull things from my stash. I am trying to make myself quilt the three unfinished tops I now have before I start another project. This is so hard especially with three recently purchased books from Amazon. New small projects might be ok to do!
