WHY STEWEY IS NOT ALLOWED TO WATCH ANY MORE OLYMPICS, BY THE SPINSTER STITCHER HER VERY SELF

This will be very short and sweet today, folks. Stewey is out in the car waiting for me to take him shopping. I can guarantee you that if I'm not out there in about three minutes, he's going to start honking the horn. This, unfortunately, will result in me having to run out there in my nightgown. And considering that I'm full-on into "winter legs" mode, I'd really rather not.

(Believe me when I tell you that nobody needs to see that on a Friday morning in Hoosierville.)

(And by nobody, I'm referring to the construction crew that's noisily building a house down the street.)

There I was...minding my own business while watching the Olympics and happily stitching away on My Land. I thought that Stewey was sleeping under the blanket on the ottoman, but it turns out he was up in the studio, pencils clutched in his paws while furiously drawing in his little notebook.

Stewey has decided that he wants a pair of gloves just like this: But he wants to wear them with this:
Given my sewing skills (or miserable lack thereof), methinks this is going to be a very long day. Damn dog.

  5. Stewey's such a crack up! Perhaps you can turn his attention to something else. The Olympics aren't over yet - but then, again, those gloves are stunning!

  6. Yay for winter legs! Is it bad that I have winter legs all year long?

    Tell Stewey that I don't think black is his color. Maybe feather gloves in a nice bright blue?

  7. What really needs asking is what Stewey's lady friendS have to say about his desire to wear feathered gloves and skin-tight body suits with spangled snakes?

  8. Stewey, me thinks leather would not be becoming for you. You will not pull the chicks in wearing tight leather!

  9. ROTFLMAO!!!

    And btw - I am in full "winter leg" mode as well... and am in full agreement that they should never see the light of day, no matter what state you're in! :)

  10. What a great thing about getting old, the loss of winter legs! I have less hair on legs than every, but then I am over 60. Hmmm, TMI!

  11. Just think of the people who put all of those sparkly things on costumes! What a job.

    I can't wait to hear how the shopping excursion turned out ... mostly because I have such a bizarre mental image of Stewey dressed as Evan.
