Good morning peeps, the sun is shining here and it looks like it’s gonna be a beautiful day. Of course, everyday is beautiful – its just the weather that can let it down! Living in England I think I need to be hypnotized into loving cold wet weather!!
Anyway, today I thought I’d share a little picture (or two) of my doggies…
Firstly, here is Teddy
Then we have princess Lilybett
They are both standard poodles and are half brother and sister – they have the same mum but different dad’s. These pictures were taken in June 2015, so Teddy would have been just under 2 years and Lily just under 3 years, and they were both in need of a ‘spa day’
Any hoo hugs for now ✳
This post has been sometime coming. I have no good reason, or excuse……but I do apologise to all of you that have been waiting, longing for my next post ! Ha! Ha!
the thing is, there hasn’t been a whole lot to say lately, But my old crochet hook has been on fire!!
A few months ago I joined a knitting group that meets at our local palliative care unit and I have got embroiled in charitable makes and display pieces and in between times I have been making stuff for ‘Vintage Miss Daisy’
one of the more popular pieces has to be the Hippie-Potamus……
I have been making them to order…..
Made from a pattern by Heidi Bears they are so sweet. I love the colours I chose to use, they blend in with my vintage style perfectly!
right now I have a cup of tea with my name on it!
Just thought I’d share with you –
When they aren’t eating, pooping, sleeping or rough housing they like the spectator sport of watching people go by!
With the weather getting a bit more chilly by the day I thought it was time to get out the crochet hook.
with a little inspiration from the wonderful internet and not a pattern insight, this is what turned out……
A cabbage patch kid Hat!
I’ve had quite a lot of compliments on this while I have been out walking the dogs. ‘Him indoors’ who doesn’t have much hair showed quite an interest in it as well! May I shall have to make one for him! X
Hello Peeps, I haven’t been here for what seems like ages – I do hope that you are still there……..at least some of you.
During my ‘down time’ we have had a little addition to the happy household AKA the Little Makery……
Everybody meet the newby!
He is 8 weeks old in this picture and he is now just over 10 weeks old and has grown MASSIVELY! Even the vet was surprised……..I just hope he knows to stop growing at some stage.
With this newcomer life has become one long round of pee and poop so I haven’t had very much free time.
The Princess is being very well behaved with him…….I think they will become good friends.
We have been going to ‘good citizen’ classes (she was too old for puppy class!) and she is doing quite well with it, definitely worth going to. We have a test next week, I hope she (we) do well and passes. Fingers crossed…….I’ll let you know!
Okay, just to let you know the Princess poodle has finally healed – hooray!
We had a slight delay in her wound healing because her “lampshade” was rubbing on the bottom edge and made it sore. Catch 22 really….she had to wear the lampshade because she kept picking and licking, but that made it sore so she wanted to pick and lick! Still it’s mended now and we can get back to a bit more normality, she’ll be glad to see her doggy friends again.
As for the Prince PeeWee’ s supplies – didn’t get everything but made a good start. However, I have ordered a doggy pushchair for him, so that he can come out with us before he’s had all his jabs!! As Mirandas mother would say “such fun!”
I’m starting to get just a little bit excited now. Not too much you understand but just a teeny bit.
I’m not sure where I read it, but someone said you can never have too many poodles….one is never enough. Well, guess what, we are getting an addition to the family! Yay!!
Princess Poopy Pants is getting a baby brother……….Will probably be known as Prince PeeWee.
He is indeed another standard poodle, apricot colour and will be coming home next weekend, I can’t wait. I just hope the Princess of the house will like him.
This week end we are off to buy him his collar, name tag and lead
Oooooh! I’m even more excited now!!!
I will put a picture as soon as I have one x
It has definitely been a while since I have posted anything on here……..so sorry, very rude of me!
The thing is I have been just so VERY busy.
I have had family come to visit for a couple of weeks – which was an absolute treat. I loved having them here.
But as well as that I have still been trying to sort out online selling. it’s getting on my nerves now! I have wasted so much time trying to sort out computer stuff, time that could be far better spent making things!! Very unsatisfactory to my mind.
I just don’t understand why my items never seem to show up on google searches…….to be fair online selling is pretty rubbish if my marvellous creations can’t be found. I’ll never sell much like that and it might take a while to make my first million.
To be fair, I heard it said once that the second million is easier to make – so I might start with that one first! Ha Ha!
One of my newer ‘marvelous’ creations is a crochet bunny with an itsy bitsy butterfly resting on its foot.
“Does my bum look big in this?”
I am LOVING the crochet just lately…….I just can’t seem to stop……I’m like a thing possessed. Hee hee!
My craft stall is called ‘Vintage Miss Daisy’ and although I haven’t been out and about with it lately it is still in my mind all the time, thinking, planning, making. And today I thought I would make a daisy that I could put in the car.
This is what turned out
So that it would stand up I weighted the ‘body’ with pearl barley (ideally that could have benefited from being put into an old stocking or some such similar so it didn’t fall out through the stitches! Note to self for next time!)
