Work in Progress

Due has gone to the country for the week - so it's a little quiet here in my world. The weather is starting to cool and it's a good time for Mom and I to work on some new designs for our fall collection of pet floorcloth / placemats. You can check out our etsy store by clicking here.

Mom likes to comb through pages and pages of design magazines to get ideas. For patterns, for color combinations. The "SoHo Bone" above was inspired by the blanket in the current issue of Martha Stewart Living.

The fun and mod paw print mat - we're going to call it "The Gramercy" was inspired by this vase we found on the pages of the September issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

This one was also influenced by BH&G's September issue. Mom loved the kitchen back splash and tried to use that color palette in our new "Washington Square Bone". I think Mom really enjoys mixing up the custom colors. It looks to me like she's playing with her paints - but then that's just me!

I hope you enjoy seeing a little of our work in progress. I need to crack the whip and get Mom to finish the detail work on these last two so they can be posted in the etsy store by this weekend.

Saturday is suppose to be beautiful. I'm hoping Mom will take me to The Ramble in Central Park. Although you have to stay on leash at all times in The Ramble - it's a lot of fun. It's heavily wooded and the closest thing us city dogs have to being in the mountains. I am very envious of the photos Sierra-Rose posts on her blog about her adventures out west.

It's funny you mentioned me...with a few camping expeditions under my belt, I seem to do much better out there in the wilderness, then here at home..urban...too many ways to get myself in trouble!
Have fun at the parkie!!!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
