Crochet assistant...

I did some housework today, a load of dishes, some hand-washing, counter swabbing... but I did get some nice crochet time in the sunny afternoon.  My Cairn Terrier, Buddy, has his place on my lap, on my left thigh.  The rest of my lap is for my MacBook Pro, or crocheting.  

He's my assistant.. :-)

I got Buddy for my husband for Christmas 7 years ago.  He tells me often that this dog is the best gift I've ever given him.  When we got him he was the size of a little stuffed animal and I put him on my lap on my left and the laptop on the right and that's been his "place" ever since.  

I've been working on this rainbow blanket in Rico Creative Cotton for a *LONG* time! I'm 2/3rds done, then will do a border edging.  I'm getting ready for this project to be done so I can get on to something new and exciting.  

We're going to my son's house tomorrow to visit and take Chinese take-out for them for dinner.  Our daughter-in-law had surgery on her foot and her mom flew up from Los Angeles to help with the kids while she recovers.  That will be nice to see her, I haven't seen her since the wedding over a year ago.

Here's hoping that you all have a great Sunday and a super week!  

Hugssss, Teresa
