1 Decorating is making progress. It will be beautiful in time…….
2 This amazing picture of an immaculate wood-stack in the shape of an owl came my way recently. I can’t imagine actually using any of the wood.
3 I started knitting the Snow Dog months ago but have put off the sewing up, my least favourite part of making anything. Today, in a break from painting the coving, I made a start. It’s hard!

Do you have the Snow dog Pattern?

It was in a magazine. I’ll see if I can find it. 🙂

I thought I’d seen some interesting wood stacks, but this one hits it out of the park. Wow. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

Fabulous isn’t it? I would love to have one like it but wouldn’t ever want to take a log out! 🙂

Snow dog -intriguing name, even more interesting that is clothing for for a baby. The knitting and sewing is pretty much a foreign concept, though I know enough to appreciate it has its challenges.
I have seen many a wood piles, but never one stacked with a painters touch. In the north, the die hards who heat with wood take their wood piles serious an show great pride in a well stacked pile with the best of wood. My brother is such a person. When i visited him this past summer, a trip to see 20 chord of neatly stacked birch was in order -can’t image him doing this but am going to suggest it if only to hear his reply.

How wonderful, Sally, I come by and see you STILL find 3 beautiful things each day! Just beautiful, in itself. But really, nothing beats those wee booties 🙂

That owl is wonderful! What a shame to waste it x

so lovely so creative, Thank you dear Sally, love, nia

With an arrangement like that I would never ever make a fire. So creative.

Nope, there’s no way I could burn any of that wood – no matter how cold it got!
Your snow dog pieces are adorable, hope you’ll share the finished work. 🙂

Too detailed for me to sew…but, I now you can do it!… love the stacked wood… had my husband looking closely as I showed it to him…
November 27, 2013 at 10:42 pm
I will do it but in short spells. It’s getting the face right and the angle of the ears so that it really looks like the one in the film – nothing less will do! Thank you for your encouragement. 🙂

I so understand wanting to get it right…when I paint it’s the same way!

give the snow dog as a puzzle
November 27, 2013 at 10:22 pm

Those socks are so adorable 😀
November 27, 2013 at 10:43 pm
They were the easy bits and I am very pleased with how they turned out. 🙂
November 27, 2013 at 8:00 pm
wow you are good… those tiny socks….
November 27, 2013 at 8:03 pm
But it’s very hard to sew up. Everything is so small. I was going to make three, one for each Grandchild – now I’m only going to make one, this year at least! 🙂
November 27, 2013 at 8:04 pm
I can imagine…. I admire your work!
November 27, 2013 at 8:06 pm
Thank you very much! I’ll show you again when he’s all sewn up. :):)

Amazing – my log stacking is a little more basic 🙂
November 27, 2013 at 8:02 pm
So is ours! 🙂

November 27, 2013 at 8:01 pm
Wish it were mine! 🙂
November 27, 2013 at 7:02 pm
Hi there, I love the owl – I too would find it difficult to use the wood.
November 27, 2013 at 7:12 pm
Thanks for calling in and taking the time to comment. I’ve never seen a wood-stack like it. 🙂
November 27, 2013 at 6:53 pm
Hey Sally ~ Give it a lil time and effort and complete the sewing , i m sure it will turn out beautifully.
November 27, 2013 at 7:11 pm
Thank you for the encouragement! The really hard thing is making the little Snow Dog recognisable! 🙂
