Okay, who can resist cute animal pictures?  I know I can’t, so here are a couple for your enjoyment.

Guess who came for a visit to maison Lulu Bliss… Why the lovely Natalie from Coquette and her adorable dog Lulu!  My two doggie boys were quite impressed with the city girl Lulu, and Lulu seemed to love our backyard.  While the doggies played (in some cases scared or annoyed Lulu), Nat and I worked on finishing up a project for her daughters’ school.  I got to show Nat a quick way to bind the edges of the school wall hanging, we got to chit chat and do a much needed catch up.  Then a yummy lunch.

Another sweetie, Peanut.

Yesterday, I delivered a slipcover to my friend Carolyn and got to hang out with another adorable pup, Peanut.  We went for a quick trip to the very interesting Fabrics R Us store, in San Jose.  Then I finished the slipcover for her home office recliner.  She recently redecorated her home office in shades of black, white and yellow (as you can see in the pic of Peanut), the brown recliner in the corner just wasn’t cutting it.  So, we slip-covered it.  Let me tell you, that was the first time I slip-covered a recliner, a probably the last.  There are a lot of moving parts to consider.  Here are the before and after shots:

Black and white recliner after.  It still needs the ticking pillow to be made.
