Been a while.........

I have NEVER gone this long without updating my blog. Had a couple of things that I had to do, including this. Apparently, the root canal I thought I had on March 13th was only a pulpotomy. Who knew?

Anyway, here are the wayward squares in chronological order from March 25th to today.




Fido II - embellished stencil



Camohound - Psychedelic, man. This was actually a mask for this tile that I saved and used here.



Trumpadoodle - a detail from our 2006 Christmas card.



Eye Spy - Trumpy's eye with paisley and flowers.




Dogtrack - from a vintage postcard and Jolee's sticker.




Trumpethead - 'nuff said.


From Terry Pond's business card. She's a great illustrator and wiener dog enthusiast. Check her out.


Ok, this is NOT an April Fools Day prank. Remember this? Well, the same dog beat us again yesterday! I was spitting tacks. A year and a half of showing Trump and NOTHING. No points. Zip. He needs 15 points with two majors to finish and as of yesterday still zero.


Well today the tables turned. Not only did we beat that dog, we won our class! That didn't earn us any points, but it gave us a chance at points when we went in the ring against all the other winners from the other classes. And -- hold onto your chew toys, puppies -- we won! Trumpet was Winners Dog! And then we took Best of Winners! Trumpet and I earned two points today! Horray Trumpy! I bought him a present for his great performance.

So even tho dog month is officially over, I had to do one Trumpet tile in honor of our win.

Yay, Trumpey! Hope Mommy didn't have to pull a Tanya Harding to get you those points.

I'd take a lobotomy over a pulpotomy every time. Way to go Trumps! Good to have your blog back again youngster.
