Beautiful Flowers on Fabric, on a Dog, on a Gift, and for the Weekend

There are only two weeks left in this Summer of 2010. I can't believe where the time has gone. It's always like this. Where have those lazy days of summer gone when I was a kid and summer seemed to last forever?

I thought I would share some of my felted flowers with you today as modeled by my sister Jenn's English Bulldog Oscar. Oscar is 8 years old and has turned into the loveliest dog. He is a real lovable guy. When I was working on my Felted Flowers Pattern, I thought it would be fun to show the lei on some other creatures besides Olympia. Oscar is a great model and sits well for the camera!


Looking over the shoulder....

Hoping the heat will cool off...


Waiting for his moment in the spotlight to end....


If you are looking for an "end of the summer" knitting project, check out Olympia's Felted Flowers Pattern on my webpage here. There are all kinds of fun uses for them including decorating gifts. Don't you love the background fabric I found for this photo? It is actually a "bedspread" from Urban Outfitters. Great flowers and motifs and makes a fabulous tablecloth.


This weekend we'll be sharing our farm with the guests at my second "Getting Stitched on the Farm" class in 2010. It is a floral themed venue which will be full of colorful inspiration, beautiful flower inspired ideas, and knitting and crochet. I can't wait to meet all the guests.

Will you sell postcards of Oscar? That over-the-shoulder shot is fabulous.

Awww - I love Oscar. He looks very happy to be sporting felted flowers. My Wilma (aka Girly Girl) is sending him bully kisses.

Just wanted to check in and say that I was the very pleased recipient of a lamb sweater with the flowers around the collar for my birthday from my cousin Kate who is a regular reader of this blog! I absolutely love the sweater and now cannot wait for lambing season in February. My little Jacob black and white spotted lambs are going to be so fun to play dress up with! :) Thanks! And I LOVE the flowered collar on your sister's bull dog... So cute! :D
