Which Would You Rather? Hmmmmm

Seriously......I just made up this fun little poll (10 questions) on my Squidoo page. Wondering if you're game to play? The intro question, which would you rather be doing... Lying in a hammock in Hawaii or answering polls? Well, that's a no-brainer isn't it? ha

The other 10 which would you rather questions may make you stop and think. Please share if you enjoyed the poll. (And yes, ANYONE can take the poll and answer or comment. You do not need to be a Squidoo member.) Aloha for now!

Pet Alert - Pet Rescue Decals

I love animals! In case you've not seen these pet rescue decals......Pet Alert. Here you go:

I'll never be able to repay them for all the love they've given me in my lifetime, but I'm doing what I can to keep them safe,

donating to Pet Food Banks so less fortunate pets won't go hungry,

With all the fuss about rescue pets, makes you wonder really.......Who rescued who? :)

Hope you have a purr-fectly fine day. Please offer a furr-ever home to a rescue pet. The love returned is ten-fold. I promise! :)  Go here to find an animal shelter near you. Aloha!

Make Dog Bandanas for Rescue Dogs

Dog Bandanas
I found a great tutorial online to make dog bandanas that have a casing for the collar to slide through. This style of dog bandana is safer and more comfortable for the dogs to wear. While the original instructions called for single fabric, I double the fabric to increase wearing time. (If one side gets dirty, flip it over.)  

Today I dropped off 35 dog bandanas for the rescue dogs at the Hawaiian Humane Society. I chose mostly bright cotton fabric, easy to wash and wear. Each bandana required less than 15 minutes to make. I consider it time very well spent if it can help a loving animal attract their "matching human" and find a furr-ever home.

 Dog Bandanas for Rescue Dogs
Please consider making dog bandanas for rescue dogs. Better yet, visit your local Humane Society or no-kill shelter and ask what you can do to help the animals. Every shelter will have a Wish List.

Our dog, Lana, was a rescue over two years ago. She is the absolute finest pet we have ever known! If you wish to make a dog bandana or two, here's how.

I pray everyone can experience and enjoy the love of an animal. Before you drop off your dog bandanas at the shelter, read the 5 Ways Pets Can Improve Your Health

Our and Lana's thanks to every person who is kind to animals.

"Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures." - The Dalai Lama

Outdoor Tablecloth - Easy to Make

This easy to make outdoor tablecloth is made of oilcloth. I made it reversible, so both sides are easy to wipe clean. On those nights when company is coming and you're feeling rushed, just flip the tablecloth over to freshen the look. (No one will know but you.) ;)

Here is the style of folding cutting board guide I use when sewing large projects. It's very affordable and makes quick work of layout and cutting.

This cutting board is a generous 3 ft x 5 ft and folds up quite flat when not in use to save storage space. I consider a cutting board an essential part of any of my sewing projects and would feel lost without it.

Cut two same size circles from oilcloth.

Pin wrong sides together. Bind edges with doublefold bias tape.

This outdoor tablecloth is reversible!
With the variety of patterns available in oilcloth today, you can make a reversible outdoor tablecloth for many different looks. They are easy to make and easy to wipe clean. Create an affordable table cover for your outdoor area or to take along on your next picnic. Have a wonderful weekend!
