A Cover, Bag and Quiche!

The cold miserable ice rain today left us time to do indoor projects.
The Doggies were happy to do a little snoozing.
Nap Time!
Snuggling is always better with pillows
And while they snoozed.... 
Time for a little Studio YA work 
Mr. Yesteryear Acres designed this shirt
I decided my sewing machine cover was much too plain
No one wants a boring grey cover! 
Time to add a little flair 
Mr. Yesteryear Acres helped with the thread art
I love her!
 That's MUCH better! 
Next up - working on sewing skills 
My very first bag! 
Admittedly there are MANY mistakes, but I figured out how to make box corners, straps and put in a lining. 
My next bag will be even better!
In between the sewing, I had time to make Mr. Yesteryear Acres a Mushroom Onion Quiche for dinner. 
Maybe ice storms aren't so bad after all!

Everybody's Buddy

Ernie McDoodle is quickly becoming everybody's buddy! He is the sweetest, happiest, kindest doodle around! He loves bringing toys and sticks to the other Doodle Doggies and gifting them as presents! It just makes my heart melt! 
He is Hickory's favorite pillow

"What are you looking at Mom? Can't you see its snuggle time?"

Maverick's favorite partner in crime... "Do you see that squirrel?!?"

and Blossom's favorite personal bed heater... "ahhhh so toasty warm!"

I couldn't ask for a sweeter Doodle Doggie! 
Thank you for loving us all Ernie McDoodle!!!

Always,

Amelia

Echo by your side!

One of our Yesteryear Acres Doodle puppies went home to a family that sadly found out that the Dad had terminal brain cancer.  The family named their beloved puppy Echo and Echo became a constant companion to the Dad. Echo never left his side.  After Echo's Dad passed away, Echo needed a new job.  So did Echo's mom. So Echo and her human mom began hiking.  They hiked miles and miles and miles.  They hiked until their hearts weren't as heavy as they were when they first began their hiking adventure.  Echo's mom works in a retirement home and up until a few weeks ago, Echo had no interest in going to work with her.  Echo's mom went to work just like she always did but suddenly, Echo decided, yes, yes she would love to help at work! Echo's mom began bringing Echo with her and the residents fell in love with Echo as much as Echo fell in love with the residents.  Echo is now bringing her healing loving touch to everyone at the home and both Doodle Doggie and humans are filled with joy.
Echo knows how to bring smiles to each heart

And boy does she love it when the residents make her smile!

Echo says she loves her job and wishes everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Birthday Crafting Genius

Yesterday was our older daughter's birthday and we celebrated her day doing the thing she loves most....crafting! Abigail's Artistry is coming along nicely and we have had the very best time these past few months crafting, sewing and embroidering together.  
Abigail created some beautiful kitchen towel collections.
She will be moving soon and these towels are going to look great in her new home!
She also made hand towels
and sweatshirts
And her very own doggie "Bear" wearing a scarf for the winter
We all love her creations!!!!
This past week Abigail and I took a sewing lesson
Abigail went right to work
on her very first sewing project 
Can't stop her now! 
Looking good! 
She made a table runner in just one day AND
matching placemats!
Happy Birthday to my Crafting Genius.  I feel so lucky and so grateful to share our love of creating beautiful projects together!
