Willow, Rugs, and Scarves!

Willow loves to be wherever the camera action is!  Here she is modeling how exquisite she looks lounging on my newly hooked rose rug.  She especially likes to be seen on this rug because it's bound in a pretty sage ribbon, and the colors set off her winter coat.

Above, Willow is snugly wrapped in my most recent fiber challenge.  I have so enjoyed the lovely photographs of crochet work I've seen lately on blogs, and especially on Flicker!  So....dug out my hook and thought I'd dive right in.  Well....I sort of forgot how to crochet!  Thank goodness for all the wonderful video tutorials on line.  I found a pattern for this lacy scarf that's very easy. In fact, it's called the Easy Lacy Shells Pattern Scarf.  My scarf success prompted me to pick out three yummy yarn colors, which I'll show you when I have my first granny square crocheted!

Modeling is such grueling work, and now Willow tires.  She does look lovely in a rose colored scarf.  Fortunately, body image is not a problem for her as it can be with many models.  A pretty lacy scarf can hide a lot of Fancy Feasts!

Your Rose rug is really beautiful. I love the way that you finished it with the ribbon.
Willow is a great model indeed.

Come by for a visit anytime.

The rug is beautiful and what a totally cool finish you've added. How did you do that? I love it!

Love your rose rug! How did you do that ribbon trim? It really adds a fun and whimsical touch! Catching Willow yawning is a hard thing to photograph....I've been trying to get one of Max when he growls and shows his teeth...it's so funny. But he knows I am taking the photo and he won't do it for anything! I have been thinking of trying to crochet again too. That might be a disaster though! LOL Great post! Cathy G
