Finished the ear turn backs today, I need to tinker about with the shading under her chin. I need my tutor to check it on Friday & hope we can start to add her whiskers
Still tidying in doors, the oddest things found in the Kitchen, was several packets of gate fixings ( hooks & eyes) & geology rock sample. I’ve decided to set a side a small cupboard for his wheat/ gluten containing things, to try & cut down on cross contamination. I’ve been tidying all over the house, getting rid of lots of clutter. I might even be tidy in each room!!
These caterpillars are about 3 weeks old now. They are High Brown Fitillary butterflies ( hopefully)
Luna & May have been helping me in my garden they are worn out. Even the post man could creep up on them, probably not.
We gave them to M&D today, they really liked them.
I got the pattern for Christmas jumper dachshunds from Esty, but the pattern has no obvious link on it.
Happy Christmas crafting. Still got a few things to finish.
My first Christmas card, I have not made cards for a long time. I saw this chart on Esty & thought it would be perfect for my friends Tracey , as she love dachshunds too. We don’t get many opportunities to meet up, but this weekend we are, I’m going to take it with me, I hope she likes it.
I’ve been putting my new small class sized sewing machine through its paces this week to find out what it can do. Mum brought me an Soul blossoms jelly roll & pack of fat quarters ( still unused!) for my birthday last year. I’m making some chair seat covers & a table runner for the dinning room. These are the patch work part of my chair seat covers. I’m in the process of joining all the nine patches together to make the runner. I’ve now got to remove the old fabric chair seat cover & replace it with cotton, next job find staple gun.
Although it’s been hot here Luna has taken to wearing a Tshirt , she had heat rash under her arms, it stops her scratching it. She is so funny about it, a new one arrived today, she kept pestering until I put it on her.
I know the sun might be shining but that grass is still wet! So I’m staying here in the dry under the table behind my Dads modelling stuff. If you want me come & get me!
We had to climb in to get her, biscuits & bones didn’t work, but the grass was dryer, she spent quite a bit of time ‘hunting ‘ anything that moved.
Luna & May had their final vet check today, they are most thankful that a return visit is not required ( they hate the vets with passion & howled all the way there). The stitches have healed so well they can return to normal ( including stairs). Luna & I have returned home. Luna is now watching everyone go by from her prime location the front room window , on my chaise lounge, or in Luna’s mind the most expensive dog bed ever!!!
