Tuesdays With Tag - Time For Christmas Pictures Again...

Brynwood Needleworks - Taggart
Hi, Everybody!
Well, it's that time of year again...
Turkey leftovers, draggin' out the Christmas decorations and takin' pictures for our annual Christmas card.

First, we all had to get into our positions. Mom had to help me 'cuz I couldn't get on the waterfall myself. Of course, the water was turned off so we didn't all get soaked.

I was pretty sure I wasn't gonna fall in, but I wasn't sure Mom wouldn't fall in and take me with her! The Black Dog wasn't sure what to expect. She stuck pretty close to Dad.

I thought I'd toss a couple of ringers into the mix, so when Uncle Rick was ready to take a picture of us, I first turned the opposite way from everybody else. Yup. That's a picture they won't use!

My personal favorite was this "fake barf" picture. Can you tell I've been readin' Calvin & Hobbs? hee hee

I can't show you any of the actual good pictures. Mom said we have to save them for closer to Christmas to share. We really did get a few good ones though. Heck. Even Bella Butt looked good once she knew she was safe on our perch! You'll just have to trust me until you see 'em. It won't be long. Cross my heart.

I'm gonna head to the kitchen. I think I hear turkey leftovers bein' offered! I better put on my best "Good Corgi/Sweet Corgi" look if I'm gonna score a schnibble or two!

I'll see you again in seven! 'til then...

Gettin' Down To Business...

Brynwood Needleworks - #36 Corgi Wallet
I nearly completed the wallet to match the tote I finished on Friday. (I did take a little time off for the holiday, but worked in the studio most of the weekend.)

All the parts and pieces are sewn into the wallet, and all that's left is to sew up the sides to finish it. The set will be on its way to a new home by tomorrow.

I designed this label for my Corgi-themed projects about three years ago, and have frequently used it in many of my projects. Now that I'm embroidering "Brynwood" onto the back of these Corgi wallets, I'm installing these labels into the interior in front of one set of credit card slots.

From this sale - and through 2016 - if this label appears on a finished piece, the buyer will know that 10% of the proceeds from sales will be donated to CorgiAid. I will be doing more research to locate a charity that is involved directly in DM (Degenerative Myelopathy) research, and may split funds between CorgiAid and a research charity in the future.

Once I finish this wallet, I have a queue of other orders to fill. Today is the last day to order custom orders in my Etsy shop for Christmas delivery. Everything already on the books will be finished this week.

Handsome has a Christmas concert in Venice this evening, so I'll be quitting work a little earlier than usual today. This is my Birthday week, too!!! A little work - a little play...I can already tell this is going to be a great week!
