Since I have no ladies to show you today since #10 and #11 are traveling to their owners via the postal service, I want to show you something near to my heart. The other day I was blessed with a personalized collar for my Toby. Jen, my friend, who works at Patched Works in Elm Grove, has a new puppy too. Hers will be giant sized (maybe medium giant, when I think about it) and mine will stay tiny (I'm hoping.) A few weeks ago Jen got on a kick making dog collars. AND, when I say "kick", I really mean KICK. She was having such fun she eventually made about 60 of them in all sorts of styles and colors and sizes. Go check out her blog. What a hoot! BUT, I can understand! Duh.....the ladies! How many have I made? 'Course, who's counting?
Now, I was going to show the new collar on Toby, but right now his hair is so long that you can't see anything around his neck, in fact his leash looks like it is coming right out of his neck so I thought it better to photograph it alone.
Did you note that it's adjustable? How cool is that? Just a click and it's together or apart, unlike his old one where I'd have to find a hole to put the little thingy into and with all his coat, that was a real trick. SO, the whole point is to thank Jen for this great gift for my little guy and to get all of you over to her blog to check out those collars for sale.
On a different note, I think there is a spook invading my Flickr stream. Let me explain. I have a Flickr pro account. I'm not sure if you can tell without one where your "hits" are coming from or which item is getting the most views in a day, but something weird is going on with mine. Since August 22nd, this mug rug is been viewed an average of 69 times each day. Not 40, or 80, but almost without exception, 69 times each day. So, so far, that is an additional 1242 views since August 22nd and a grand total as of this writing of 1844.
So, I don't get it! This mug rug is in the Wisconsin Quilt Museum. It's in their gift shop, for sale. Can you help me here? Why is this particular mug rug (not even the coolest one I ever made) getting all this attention? Does anyone have a clue?
