My Granddogs and New Craft Tote

This past week I have been babysitting my "Granddogs" while Dad and Mom are vacationing in Cancun. I let them play early in the morning because our weather has been getting to the 3 digit number and it's way too hot for them in the afternoon. This morning I play fetch with them and it was cooler for me also. The big long haired German Shepherd has been looking for Dad when she looks out the living room window. When she sees a dark gray truck out the window, she starts to perk up. Then I have to disappoint her and tell her it's not him. She a real good girl. Her name is Nila.

Now comes Jillian (Jill). She is a sweetie pie too. I have had her before and she has really calmed down. I guess that is because she has 3 playmates now. She and Nila play in the house together and it is so funny how delicate they are with each other.

That's the two big dogs and we are now down to the dachshunds. First there is Willie. Willie is rather chubby, but he is so sweet. When the big dogs get frisky, he stays out of the way, but then he is 5 years old. He is a big baby and is well behaved.

Last, but not least is Cricket, she is real fiesty, but affectionate. Our first day was spent on how she was getting out of the back yard. Well, I caught her and she is just small enough to squeeze through a gate opening. Well, we fixed that and now she has no choice but to play in the backyard. She is quite the character.

In between the dogs I did manage to finish making a craft tote bag. The front has two pockets, that are divided down the middle of the bag. The back has 4 pockets done the same way. I did not put pockets inside. It was not hard to make.

I really like your totes, especiall the green and floral one. I think I like making totes now more than quilts. They are faster and a sense of satisfaction to go with it. Happy sewing and leaving a message on my blog.
