Happy Sunday! I had hoped to be sharing my Sewaholic Gabriola with you today with my week 2 roundup, but I’ve been spending all my time taking care of Piper. I came home from work on Wednesday to a very upset and scared pup who crawled her way to me and climbed in my lap (she never sits in my lap). She had done major damage to a hot spot while I was at work to the point where it was bleeding. We had to take her to the vet and she has been traumatized ever since. Therefore, we’ve been keeping a close eye on her to avoid the dreaded “cone of shame” or in Piper’s case…the inflatable doughnut. I’m a super light sleeper, so I’ve been sleeping on the couch with her so I can hear if she starts licking it. My husband has also been pampering her with chicken on the grill, since we can’t get her to eat. I know..I know..we are spoiling her, but what can we say…we love our fur baby! Anyways, I still managed to wear something handmade every day this week and I had an opportunity to pattern test a pair of shorts that I just couldn’t pass up. More on the shorts to come!
I have blogged about all of these makes, so check out my posts to read more about them!
