Yes - I mentioned in my heading that we have a new puppy. Those of you who follow "stitching noni's" website will know that we lost our beautiful German Shepherd - "Daisy" - to bloat on the 26th May. We don't have children together (I have 2 grown up boys from my first marriage) - so our fur kids are very important to us. To lose Daisy so suddenly broke our hearts and she has left a big big hole in our lives.
Quite by chance we met a lady who lives quite close to us who had a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel "Milly" who was pregnant. She had 2 girls and a boy and we put our name down for one of the pups. Last Saturday we picked up our new baby - Mitzi. She is sooo cute (and very wilful for a small dog!!!). Not too many puddles on the floor and I have spent the weekend making our house and garden puppy proof.
Say hello to Mitzi......
Since Daisy's death I have struggled to focus on the bigger projects so I have been having fun on some smaller bits and pieces. The pin cushion with the flower is included in the give away, the second pin cushion with the embroidered cat I have given to my Mother-in-law. And the 3rd pin cushion I will keep for another give away - or something....
This has also been an excuse for me to play with my new embroidery machine - wow its brilliant!!! I have made a set of place mats with dogs on - (yes a King Charles Cavalier and some German Shepherds) and I just just bought some more material so I can make some more place mats.
The 2 round pin cushions are "Spools Pincushion" from www.rileyblakedesigns.com. The top cushion is based on "Border print "buckshot" pincushion" from Jenny Beyer Studio. (I am a great fan of Jenny Beyer - love her colour theories and met her last year when she came to Perth).
Better get on as I promised to make some BLT's for lunch!!!!
See you again soon...
