The past two months we have been living the camping life while waiting on our house to sale so we can start building our new house. As much as we love camping it was beginning to be a little difficult for me to work. You see, Blitz (our Italian Greyhound) loves nothing more than to get into my yarn. Did I mention she LOVES yarn? At night when I would be trying to work while the kids and hubby were chilling out she would boop the back of my head, pull my ponytail  holder out of my hair, or jump over the back of the couch into my lap until I put my work up and lay down with her. Talk about being SPOILED!

We decided to start looking for a house and a nice back yard for the girls. After looking for a few weeks we found a cute house, good size backyard in a small town. When I say small I mean small – like population of 400. LOL We just started moving in and getting acquainted with the surrounding areas. I apologies for the square not being completely flat, it has been tucked away in my bag designated for this crochet along.
