Tongue Out Tuesday

This photo was taken with my Nikon D5100 camera, if you're curious. (an affiliate link)
Tongue Out Tuesday.  Charlie, the rescued Springer, says hello.
My boy Charlie, our English Springer Spaniel.  He's so pretty.  He was rescued off the streets of the Alabama Gulf Coast.  He's so happy here.  He has such a good life.  He had a terrible life before and bonded with my husband hard and fast. We didn't have the heart to separate them.  He was our first foster and our first foster fail.  :)  He is one of the best things to ever happen to us.   If you would like to follow ESRA on Facebook, you'll hear all kinds of good news stories about rescued Springers.  All Dog lovers are invited.

I hope you'll follow our blog and keep up with our dog fostering journey.  We love company.

English Paper Piecing with my English Springer

I've got Charlie asleep in my lap and I'm hand piecing some hexies.  I've worked so hard this week.  I decided to start the weekend early by taking it slow.  I'm thinking I'll make him a little hat?  Naaaa....he would hate it.  

What are you doing this weekend?  Got plans?  We're working on our son's room right now.  Photos to follow.....  Or check out my Instagram or Facebook, as I update more often there, than I do here.    

This is Charlie, our first Springer foster, and obviously, first foster fail...and that's totally ok. :)

If you need anything for your pet this summer, please shop through the Amazon affiliate link below.  We thank you for your support.  I highly recommend owning a Thundershirt to get you through firework season!!!  We lost Charlie last summer for 10 days on the 4th of July.  Make sure your dog is tagged and microchipped before it's too late.
