Born and RAISED...

My Mom made me this snazzy new basket to hold my toys, all of them! It's great, and was worth the wait. Sometimes I have to be very patient. ~sigh~ She posted last week about the basket being born, she had to go to the store and buy more thread; plus, wrap more clothesline to make the sides higher and higher. ( I have a LOT of toys!) In fact, I think there's room inside for even more, I am going to ask her to take me to the toy store... CAR TRIP! ~wag, wag, wiggle, wiggle~
Oh, yeah... there's plenty more room in here...
Life is Good!

Awww, so cutemous. Way to go on the rockin' cool basket, too. Speaking from basket-making experience - please allow me to say you are Uber-Cool. I cannot fathom the work it took to reach this size. Yep, this was some effort. Allow me to add that you have my Uber-respect . I'm just sayin' from knowin'...

Hannes may now have tied with Shelby for my 'other people's CUTEST dogs' affections! The basket turned out beautifully..you are so patient to use such fine rope!

Quilt Hollow said...

I know just how long it takes to make those baskets....fab job! I see some serious toys! Now that is one lucky doggie!!

Beautiful basket! And you actually made one and made it bigger. They've been on my 'to do' list for so long, the clothes that used to hang on the clothes line no longer fit ;)

Nane said...

Wow what a lucky dog. Now if you can just train him to put them all back when he is done playing!

Hannes,

I love to get in baskets too. Sometimes it's just the easiest way to get your toys.

See you soon.
Love,
Mason

Way to go, Hannes ~ you've been SO patient . . . that is an awesome basket (and a great hiding spot, if you snuggle down 'under' the toys!

Have fun on the car trip to the doggie toy store!

dz wonders how much close line and fabric granny would need to make for a basket big enough for her to fit into.....

Patchwork Penguin said...

You look so sweet in your basket...... and I know there are so many more toys to put in there for you.

Can you ask Mommy to email me and let me know where the instructions aer for this basket? Thank you.

WTG--the basket looks great and how nice that puppy appreciates all your hard work. Just hope he doesn't confuse the basket for a toy!

Lizzie said...

Love your basket! where did you find this pattern or how to make up your own pattern?? I would love to use up some of my stash this way!

Hannes is one lucky pooch. Looks like he loves to pose for the camera! Cool basket, was it difficult to make, I've never seen one of those before?

Dear Hannes,
I know for a fact, that Mt. Tabor Board & Grooming have lots of toy & treats on the wall as you come in the door. I visited there this week for a hair cut & bath and I couldn't make up my mine which one I liked best. Happy shopping.
Your friend,
Bentley

Hannes looks very pleased with your efforts.
