Crocheted Sweater for Sheli

Shelibean is a nudist. He hates wearing store-bought clothes and sweaters. Since we rarely take him outside in the winter-time, it’s not an issue. However, I still want him to have a sweater when we do take him outside. And it’d be a big bonus if he is content in it.
It occured to me that he enjoys my crocheted collars and blankets that I make for him, so maybe, just maybe, he’d might be more content in a sweater I crocheted.
Starting early this morning, I set about crocheting him a sweater. It went together easier than I thought it would. I can’t believe I actually got it finished.I don’t have a pattern, so for the length and the width I kind of went by a store bought sweater. The store bought sweater just has slits where his front legs go,  but I decided to put sleeves in it to try and keep him a bit warmer.
I think the sweater turned out pretty good.
I think Sheli looks adorable in his new sweater.
He seems to like it quite well.
He strutted around the house in it and acted happy.

Sending out warm thoughts and snuggles to your pets.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Happy 5th Birthday Sheli-bean!

The top news for the week is that today is Sheli-bean’s 5th birthday. I tried to take a new photo of him to post for today, but he’s having no part of it. He thinks since it’s his birthday that he should be able to choose if he’s photographed or not. Mmm, I had to agree with him. So here’s a photo I took of him awhile back when I caught him sitting on one of our end tables. He’s such a funny boy sometimes. I decorated it a bit to celebrate his special day.

My dear sweet Sheli, we love you so very much. You’re a wonderful part of our hearts and a special part of our family. Thank you for being our wonderful bossy adorable little boy. You always cheer us up when we’re down and give us many smiles every day. Thank you so very much.

Happy 5th Birthday Sheli-bean!t3345puppy-2

2017 WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge
~Shadow~

“This week, grab your camera and capture a shadow.”
~*~

7-25-2013I couldn’t take a shadow photo this week. So, I went through my old
photo files and picked out one from 2013 of Shelibean, his shadow
and the shadow of some flowers I was growing on the porch.
I hope it’ll do okay for the weekly challenge.

 Wishing you all fun with the WP photo challenge!

WIP Wednesday – New Blankets for Shelibean

When Shelibean first came to join our family, I discovered that he loved crocheted blankets. I crocheted him 4 simple little blankets. I used Red heart yarn that I had bought several years before. It was even the last of the yarn. I was happy to use it up. Crocheting Sheli the blankets restarted my love of crochet and yarn crafting in general. The blankets have held up really well even though I wash them alot. I figure they’ll last for a few more years.8-15-2012-sb

It’s been 4 1/2 years since I made the blankets. I thought Sheli might enjoy some new ones.  I use a simple granny square pattern. The blankets work up quite fast. I plan to make 3 (maybe more)

Shelibean’s enjoying the first 2 blankets so much the he lay still while I took his handsome photo.

Wishing you all progress in your
works-in-progress, whatever they may be.
