After much contemplation and a little advice from my friend, I am removing the red scallop part of the swag and replacing it with a smooth edge. It looks much nicer and makes the workmanship easier and neater. I should have all of the pieces ready to sew this evening. Ripping out is not my favorite thing to do but in the long run, I think I will be happier with the results of the new version.
I took my labrador retriever swimming today at a friend’s pool. He dove right in and it took me a while to get him out of the water. You can see his joy! He commandeered a little baby floating toy and swam the entire time with it in his mouth. You would have thought I had given him a T-bone steak. It wore him out so he is now sleeping……actually he is snoring!
