Friday Finish with Bean!


Another week and I haven't gotten as much as I planned, done. Bean does take up a lot of my time, lots of walks and keeping an eye on him so he doesn't eat everything he can find. He has lots of toys but always seems to want something he can't have.

My sister was up for a visit, so I got her things finished and forgot to take a photo of the snowman mat. It is a design I have made before but with hers, I used buttons on his front for a fun piece. I couldn't find a basket for the snow angel, so I had my husband cut out a hornbook for it. The design is by Brenda Gervais and she gives the template for the hornbook with the pattern. I did not stain this piece since my sister isn't into prim.



Bean loves to chase and carry things. I got him a stuffed sheep, it is now a sheep, minus the stuffing. The head was made of a loose linen, not a good material for a dog toy. He can now walk up stairs, but still afraid to go down. He can get off the couch, by taking a flying leap and today he was using his tongue to try and open his cage, the boy is getting too smart for his own good.

I hope everyone has a good weekend. We have nice weather coming back, so it looks like the perfect time to go for some walks with Bean.

The snow angel is something I like very much. It looks good on the horn base. Very prim and very good looking.

Love the snow angel. Glad you didn't stain it because the colors are so pretty.

Bean is adorable. Border collies have a lot of energy which I'm sure you are finding out, lol.

I had to bust out laughing at you post about Bean. He has a sheep, minus the stuffing!!!!!! OMG do I know about that. Bruno is very gently with his toys which is rare, but Oni and Brit. Brit wasn't happy until he got the squeaker out and Oni would pull out stuffing and it would stick to his whiskers, he looked like Santa. What fun we had with them. That picture of Bean with his sheep is priceless!
