I’m not really here. I’m half way through an assignment. I thought I ought to show you some makings for Jodie Cyprus Dog Rehoming’s charity.
This set of leads and collars go with some adopt me coats I made. See below.
More blue martingale collars.
A little buttoned cushion for Lyla in the car.
Kaffe Fassett collars in pale pink.
Set of adopt me coats for Jodie Cyprus Dog Rehoming.
Lettering was printed on.
Logo was sewn on.
I won the gorgeous vibrant painting!
Spring has arrived in the garden.
Tulips from Amsterdam.
Wonderfully scented vibernum.
The pack love the warmer weather.
Lyla is fitting in well. She is my study buddy.
How many triangles?
Bell, Enterprise and a Mirror in a race on the lake.
The start of the race.
My birthday present- a herb partierre. Daughter grew some of the herbs from seed for it.
Love the sight of cherry blossom against a clear blue sky.
New life on the canal.
So beautiful with dainty beaks.
There are the usual pairings I have seen year after year.
2 white call ducks stay near this established couple.
The garlic woods are greening with a smattering of bluebells.
At last I have something non dog to share-
A 1-2 year old’s dress and hat with a strawberry theme.
Dress detail with strawberry flowers.
Of course I had to make the matching coat too. It is still pinned down as I had only just finished it when the photo was taken.
It too has strawberry flowers. The popper fastenings are underneath them.
That is all for now. I am so sorry that life has taken over from Blogland for the moment. The course finishes on 1st June. Hopefully I can catch up with all of you then if not before. I am missing Blogland and knowing what you are all doing, but I can easily lose half a day reading current blog posts, let alone properly catching up. It is time I just don’t have at the moment. Sorry. Thank you for your patience.

Terri has shared this on her blog so it is ok to show here.
Close up of the stitchery- penguin, sheep and reindeer.
Close up of the snowman and birds pattern repeat of the border fabric.
I am excited as there is now a 50/50 chance of the UK having a white Christmas. The last time snow settled here was 2010, but my husband can’t remember the time before that. It would be so good to have snow again. I’m already humming “Let it Snow.”
A little crochet adventure Attic 24’s Bower Bird.
For those who are new to crochet, her tutorials de-mystify crochet terminology. Professional crochet pattern makers could take a leaf out of her book.
Mrs Tiggywinkle is now safe at the rescue. They will keep her well fed and warm over the Winter as she just isn’t big enough to hibernate.
Then in Spring when she is heavy enough (650g)she is going to be released with some others in the countryside. That must be so much better than our tiny enclosed town garden. Both the rescue and us were amazed that she had managed to find her way in with brick walls and 2 low gates. She must’ve been very small or born here. I will keep an eye out for litter mates who are likely to be just as small as her and need help to survive the Winter.
Deb Strain’s Celebrate the Season panel. Details below. I quilted the squares, did red tabs and bound it in white. The backing has Christmas flower fairies on red. (no pic)
