New Acquisitions #5

I have a whole week of new acquisitions lined up. You will think that I have been shopping up a storm, but you must remember that these represent two-and-a-half months worth of shopping. That doesn't sound so bad, does it?












This knitted dog was made by a Zimbabwean woman - she was selling them outside the hotel near our house. She had a whole row of sweet little animals. I didn't see her again - I wonder what happened to her? I know that some Zimbabweans left the country after threats of xenophobic violence were made after the World Cup - was she one of them?

I hope she is ok wherever she is. I like her little doggy, he looks kind of embarrased but sweet!

Sad thought, the dog s a bit too, but mostly sad is what humans do to others.

A knitty Snous pooch! I am so glad you brought him home, now that woman will forever be in your thoughts and hopes for better times. And since you have posted this, in ours! I would say this is one of the best buys ever!

I totally agree with Linda Sue.

A lovely little dog. Perhaps ypur purchase finally gave her enough money to go home to her family!

That would be very sad.
