I love babies, embroidery and old fashioned Baby Clothes!! I am the designer for the pattern line "The Old Fashioned Baby". My designs reflect my interest in vintage infant's and children's clothing, as do my classes, many of which include techniques and embellishments used from the late 1800's to the 1950's. I teach these techniques around the United States and publish some of my designs and ideas in Classic Sewing magazine. And I love Roses and all the flowers in My Garden (and yours too, probably).
This morning as I was getting dressed Strider picked up my fluffy polka dot sock and started to slink away with it (he still takes things and runs off with them). I stopped him.."Strider, drop it!"...he just looked at me (I know he was wondering if he could get away from me before I could get to him)...."Drop it!!" and he did.
This is not the amazing part.
I put the sock on and went to pick up the other one but it was missing. I turned to Strider, pointed to my sock and said "Go get it. Bring it to me" He got all excited and ran off.
Then he came back with my other sock in his mouth!!
Now, THAT IS AMAZING!
Well, I am impressed!
He must be really smart and is hindered in his capacity only by his owner...me!
