Happy Pups

I had to share these fantastically happy dogs with you too.¬† Thanks Elaine for sending them to me, they brought a big smile to my face ūüėÄ

Want to liven up your blog?

Scotty Dog Cap

6 Jun

Recognise this fabric?¬† It’s the same fabric as my “Scotty Dog Skirt” AND(!) the “Scotty Dog Bag” – 2 separate posts; the skirt is almost finished.

After seeing to the skirt, there was quite some fabric left, so after making the little bag, I covered one of my British army caps…and there’s still some fabric left hehe ūüėĬ†

Me wearing my Scotty Dog Cap :p

 

Chester’s Poop Bags

Madame Chester had a personalised poop bag holder especially made for her.

Don't get caught short!

Under The Gate

28 May

These beautiful lilac flowers grow on my garage.

I took these photos today when I came home…

Then,¬†under the gate someone squeaked at me.¬† Next, a black nose appeared¬†and a reaching paw scrabbled underneath.¬† It’s so nice to be greeted when you come home ūüôā

Sea Dog Sweater

16 May

Chester Pup got treated to a beautiful cream coloured nautical jumper – – – knitted by her grand-pup-mother.¬† I am useless at knitting so very pleased to receive this autumn / winter dog coat for my Jack Russell…perfect for colder days.

The dog coat pattern came from a book called Knitted Dog Coats: Over 20 Designs for Handsome Hounds and Perfect Pooches by Anna Tillman.

Mum knitted this for her grand-pup

This is such an adorable book, the photos alone with the different types of dogs wearing all styles of coats are lovely to look at.¬† But…if you are a knitter and a dog lover this book is a real treasure!

Below, photos of Chester wearing her new Sea Dog Coat :p

...finished with nautical "sea anchor" buttons!

 

My Little Sea Dog all set for autumn and winter.

Scotty Dog Bag

6 May

I designed and made this little Scotty Dog Bag during my first couple of weeks of grieving – – – Dad would have loved it.¬† The fabric matches the skirt I’m still(!) making on my dressmaking course.¬† The skirt will also feature this Scotty Dog applique (on a black panel)¬†but with a dog lead – gold chain or chain stitch in gold embroidery thread.

They at the dressmaking course think I’m dog-mad.¬† I think they’re right :p

Happy Christmas!

18 Dec

Maybe not Chester Pup’s First Christmas (that was last year) but this is her first experience of snow.¬† She was fascinated, charging about the garden, sniffing it…trying to work out what is this?

Sugar, the Forever Mexican, was having none of it…resolutely, sensibly staying indoors.¬† Curled up on cushions where it is warm.

Me?¬† I felt like I was 6 years old again.¬† Amazing that most of the UK is covered in the white stuff.¬† It’s been many years since I’ve seen this much snow in Norfolk.¬† Shame it’s melting.
