I'm Back

I know.  It's been over a year.  The best way for me to re-start this blog is to just jump in.  Many of you have been staying updated on everything over on the Ao4 Digest.  If you didn't catch the "big reveal" of the kitchen re-do, you can click here to see how it came out.  A year later and I'm still thrilled with it.

Over on the Ao4 Digest, I also posted about some webbing I purchased to make new collars and leashes.  If you didn't catch it, you can follow that link - or here's Cammie modeling the new goods:

Cameron - A dedicated follower of fashion!

Isn't she a doll?   I really prefer the limited slip collars, but had purchased a Martingale-style collar for her in that green and blue paisley print.  I LOVE the colors, but something about how the collar was constructed made it pull her neck fluffies out - so I haven't been using it.  Umm... nor has she.  You know what I mean!  In an effort to force myself to go downstairs to the Studio and start sewing (sadly, we had to say good-bye to my sweet Dave, my Guide Dog for the Color Blind) I decided it was time to put the new webbing to use and make my new little girl her very own collar by KZK.

I forgot to take the camera or iPhone downstairs, but took a couple shots with the iPad.

Those leveling bars and a demin (#8) foot sure do come in handy!

She's great company!

"For you, Cam!"

We saw a bunny on one of our first walks, so it's been strength-tested.  (Unlike Zim, Cameron DID indeed remember to stand in the Siberian high prey drive line.)  I triple-stitched the strong boxes and all the hardware is metal.  And no buckles.  I love these collars!

I'll get her to model it soon.  

Thanks for reading!

Well well look who is over here. More Cammie. I love that collar and can't wait for the modeling to begin. As you might know my MOM's sewing kit includes a stapler and duct tape. She sure could learn a thing or two form you or more like 87 things. The collar really is beautiful.
Blessings,
Goose

this is great Karen!! I will come back to see what else you are making. Camo was a great decision for your furramily...and I am sure she helps Zim be distracted from how much he misses Dave

Glad you're back creating your lovelies! Cam did a great job modeling and snoopervising you making her pretty collar! Davy taught her well!

Now that you're back in the quilting room, please make a new purse for me. I want a cross body purse with room for my Bible. Thank you. ;) I'm kidding of course. I mean about you making the bag. I'm glad you're back at the sewing machine with your new sewing buddy and I can't wait to see what you end up making.
