Once upon a time there were 5 little puppies. They were like any other puppies getting into all sorts of mischief. Doing things on the floor that they shouldn’t, you know what I mean. Then having play fights and rolling all over the floor getting covered in all sorts of things. Result 5 yucky, smelly balls of mischief. So the only thing for it was a bath.
So everything was prepared, towels, bowls, wash-cloths and a nice warm bathroom. I had visions of squealing wriggling puppies, sure that I was intent on drowning them!
But you just take a look.
No squealing, no wriggling just well behaved little pups taking it all in their stride and the end result……………………………………………
Five clean fluffy little angels. (ha ha)

Yes he has, but he has to wait a little while till they sort him an escort out. He is going to a new life in Holland and he will be flying there.
You can check out this charity Here.
They are having a very tough time at the present with loads of dogs and cats, puppies and kittens been dumped. People just can’t afford to look after their pets anymore.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that They can find homes for the others too.

Just thought that I would show you two gifts that I made for two of my friends for Christmas.
These are my scrappy version of log cabins. No measuring, just pick up random pieces from my scrap box. I am now making myself a couple, something similar but a bit different. You will see what I mean when I get them finished, but this is what they look like so far. These scraps where destined for the bin, what a waste that would have been.

We had our first meeting of our exclusive sewing group on Thursday past. There were only 3 of us thought. Why? you might ask. Well everyone is off gallivanting, most of them been in England.
Anyway I was sewing up a jumper that has been waiting for more months than I’d care to remember, Jude was cutting out a dress and Sylvia was cutting out fabric wool to knit a scrappy rug. Anyway I suggested that we do a Bom this year, that idea was left open for descussion . Then I suggested that we work on all our UFO’s. I know I have quite a few. So did Jude and Sylvia.
Here is my list:-
- My foxglove jumper.
- A waterfall cardigan.
- A longline cardigan.
- A knitted patchwork jumper.
- A chunky jacket.
- My hexagon quilt.
- My string block quilt.
These are what I can remember off the top of my head.
I don’t have photo’s of the others that I have mentioned but I think that’s enough to be going on with don’t you?
Think I will continue on with the foxglove jumper that I am in the middle of sewing up. So hopefully this will be the first finish of the year. Then it will be one down seven or so to go.
