This dress was fun to make and all the fabrics did match in the end. I just LOVE the dress and this will definitely not be the last one made from this pattern. My daughter just loved it!

Cinder is 12 months here. She is a Bull Mastiff/Boerboel (South African Mastiff) breed. I grew up with Boerboel in South Africa and they're dependable family dogs.
Mastiff are origanilla bred to be hold dogs. Guards of earlier estates caught poachers with dogs. Only trouble was that they were mauled so bad that they didn't survive to be put on trial. So these Mastiffs were bread to hold the poacher untill the guard can arrest him. The dogs were also transported to South Africa and went through a couple more mixes untill it became the well known Boerboel (farmer's bulldog). Bred to fit into families and also be a guard dog. Boerboels closely watch his owner's non verbal and verbal communication to decide if the owner is in danger and should be guarded. Otherwise it just relaxes. They very good with kids

and here is a video for those of us who didn't do it right the first time":
and because I didn't do it right the first time I stumbled on the 100facts of Chuck Norris which really made be holler. Like Leading hand sanitizers claim they can kill 99.9 percent of germs. Chuck Norris can kill 100 percent of whatever * he wants.
And because of Lisa's post I read mistyeiz's reply regarding Chuck. She goes a bit further with chuck. Read more about that on her blog Stitch by stitch. I seemed to have had lunch with my sister (which I'm sure I don't have) under my bed (yeah right, of all places I'll definitely will not pick this spot)because I can (no I can't! you haven't seen what I chuck under my bed and it is not mr.Norris)
and then it reminded me of a friend showing me the blender video. It tries the different things that the blender can handle by trying to answer the question: "will it blend?". Well you can guess it...: will chuck norris blend?
I must say I can tidy up must faster than chuck. What? Come to think of it he never tidies. Maybe he tries to clean up the bad guys but when he is finished he leaves a mess behind. My husband is better than Chuck. He cleans up after he made a mess.
That is why I did not marry Chuck.
