Puppy in a Pram

The fun just can't be measured,
 she's gone home now and sadly chickens and cats just won't play the game,
 we did try!

Wire Hair Fox Terrier

I've been  a fan for a while.

A friend asked me to puppy sit her 10 week old.  I have had a tiny ornament hanging around for a while, so I got out the never before opened Araldite - I though it was complicated!

Made my friend a little brooch.

Here's our new friend Clemmie, she sleep a lot.

Not too keen on walkies.

Let's have another snooze.

Easter Chocolate

Too hot here for Easter Eggs so sneaking a chocolate cake and ice cream instead.
Those bunny ears get everywhere.
A good two thirds through my project, loving my new project bag, from my etsy selection. Listened to 9.45 hours of 'Pure' - clearing a Parisian Cemetry and 13 hours of trying to find a Raj husband in, 'The Fishing Fleet' and knit -
Thirty Thousand Nine Hundred and Seventy Stitches 😳

Tenerife Hanami

Have been wanting to do this for a while from Ravelry, Hanami, I have 800m, fingers crossed! Done 12 hours of The Fishing Fleet and about 5 hours of Pure, on the home stretch.
Miss Belle is joining in every activity on offer, even Water Polo where she just sits on the goal, unfortunately she has my ball skills.

Cushions Galore

All over on etsy now,

the funny thing is that most of my own cushions are falling apart,

have to get busy on that one.

Etsy Commission!

I have been selling a few things on etsy of late,  it's very exciting when someone I don't know and who has never had their hands on my work buys something.
My work is now in Italy, Texas and New Jersey.

It's even more thrilling when someone who doesn't know me and hasn't handled my work has faith enough in my skill to commission me to create something and pays me before the job is done.
I am chuffed to bits.

The last of my little stitchers completed their bunnies this week, aren't they fab.

Rode Hall Farmers Market

We set off at half six this morning with our new gazebo and it rained for most of the day.
The weather didn't dampen our spirit though, we purchased cinnamon buns and I cracked on with a sock.  My assistant worked hard and you can just spy him having a much needed hot chocolate from his christmas Thermos, it used to belong to Father Christmas - but that's another story. 
The remaining Easter Bunnies have hopped over to etsy.

Pink Wool and Green Leather - In The Bag!

Almost ready for Saturday at Rode Hall, just some scarves left to embroider,
 fingers crossed!

 The hide has been made in to a few things including this bag, the tablecloth lining is bonded to it giving it a weird rubbery feel.

Perfect stitching and I couldn't even locate a leather needle, I'd be in trouble on Sewing Bee.

It's not meant to be reversible - although it's good enough to be - 
I just like to show the up-cycled lining.
