Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

Houseboat Poodle

This is just a quick post to show you the photos of the latest in my line of illustrious toilet paper poodle cozies.  I know you've been waiting with baited breath.  Here she is:

This gal has been great fun to work on.  I've been so jazzed, I've already gotten her successor well underway, and she will have her debut before many days have passed. Prepare to be amazed!  (Okay, I know--you're more aghast than amazed, but I'll take what I can get.)

If you're thinking that this poodle cozy is a little plumper than the ones you remember in your grandmother's bathroom in the sixties, you're right.  Like all Americans, today's TP poodle has been super-sized.  No more trim little rolls of tissue for the modern cozy--it's the same ubiquitous modern tubbiness that pervades the rest of western society.  Oh, well. At least she's not wearing low-rise jeans and a midriff top to emphasize her dumpy figure!
