Makin It...

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

So ever since Maggie posted about the Whippets tag yesterday, my Mom has been humming this cheesey 70's tune. Silly woman! Anyhowl, Maggie tagged me to post about making something. Here's what she Maggie barked:

I'm challenging bloggers to make something, anything, and post about it. Let's see what you creative people come up with! Here are the rules:

1. Make something, anything. It doesn't have to be complicated or artsy. Make a list, take an interesting picture, make some one's day, make dinner, make a doodle, make fun of yourself, make a poem, make your bed (OK, that last one is lame).
2. Write a blog about it. With pictures for extra brownie points.
3. Link to this blog and challenge six other bloggers to do the same.
Well, as you pups all know I am VERY talented. What I thought I would share is about something I do very very well which is....
Do you pups remember that post? Well I gave Mom quite a surprise when she came home from lunch and saw that I had performed open bed surgery - hee hee hee. I still proclaim my innocence.
Does this look like the face of a guilty pup? I think not.

I somehow think this is not what Maggie and the Whippets had in mind so I thought I would tell you about something Mom recently made for my Auntie Joey for her barkday. You know how I always tell you about how my Mom likes to knit, well, she made this really really cool journal/notebook cover...


I have to say, even I'm impressed by this!!! Just look at the cable-y details...


And I like the pretty ribbon she used too...very chic I think!!!


Auntie Joey really liked it a lot and was very proud to show it off. My Mom said she really liked making it too!

Well, now I have tag 6 doggies...let's see...I'm going to tag my Mack, Sparky, Asta, the ever handsome Marvin, my divas-in-crime Lola and Bella the Boxer! Show us what you can make!

Hate to tell you, but you did look a little guilty....

Your moms knitting is spectacular.

Cookie and crew

Gus said... 7:28 PM

We disagree with those who say you look guilty. I am sure you are simply distressed because you could not stop the terrorist who did that! And we AGREE that your Mom is a great knitter.


Bella the Boxer said... 7:30 PM

Oooohhh, my Mom's very jealous of your Mom's knitting abilities (she's not that talented in that department). But now you've got her brainstorming about things she can do when she gets back from Mexico (yup, the humans are vacationing AGAIN!). She and Dad are taking a Oaxacan cooking class, so maybe she'll whip up a spicy dish to share with everyone.

xoxo - Bella

Pee(S): Thanks for the compliments about the website. You have a discerning eye and your approval means a lot! Woof!

Hi, Ruby!
You and your mom are so talented! Each one in your own way, of course!
The mess is great and the knitting too!
Kisses and hugs

Moco said... 9:43 PM

Who broke into your house and tore up your bed. They were even brazen enough to glue stuffie fuzz on your mouth. Grammie likes to knit also. She is making socks right now.

Bentley and Niko said... 9:47 PM

I like your mess! Very avante gard! I also like the notebook cover, but I loves pink! Bentley doesn't as much, but he still thought it was nicely done.

That is a very pretty thing your mom made.

Lenny said... 8:35 AM

Your mom is so talented! My mom tried to knit me a sweater. Then it was going to be a scarf because she couldn't make a sweater. Then it was full of holes so she threw it away. Pathetic.

Your friend, Lenny

Petra said... 9:15 AM

You certainly have talent, Ruby Bleu! I thought a tornado must have hit your room until I realized it was YOU that created the mess.

Your mom doesn't share your talent, but we're all made differently, aren't we?!

Faya said... 10:31 AM

My VĂ©ronique has to see this....she won't believe me when I say that EVERY dog is doing this....
Kisses, Faya

Ruby Dear,

I can see the "stuffing/fuzz" on your lips. Next time, you need to remove the evidence before your Mom comes home- then she'll have NO idea who did it...

Stay cool-

That cover is awesome, how come Auntie Joey I got that and Nanny is still waiting for her afghan, and I don't mean a dog. Hee,hee


Noah the Airedale said... 5:30 PM

We like your work Ruby. It's most impressive and so is your mum. That notebook cover looks great.

Hugs and tail wags
