Tallulah likes Bex's wool:

 ABOVE:  That's the 3rd ball she's demolished.  Bex isn't that happy with our little girl right now.  I am sure Bex has now covered the top of her wool basket to keep Miss Tallulah out.

Last night I got the quilting done on the Mariner's Compass, and sewed on the binding too.  Now I have to put a backing on, work out how I'm going to hang it and do the finishing off...

ABOVE:  I'm really happy with it!

ABOVE:  fairly hard to see, but just showing you the quilting stitch I used... a wave pattern, quite neat!  Bex suggested it and I'm glad she did, or I might have been too scared to try it.
It wasn't even that hard, seeing as it's a programmed stitch on the machine.

So, today?  As we got bugger all housework done over the weekend, I might devote the morning to doing a bit... then after lunch I'm off to the Hospice Shop.

Right... catch ya later.

ABOVE:  Someone found the dog's bed quite comfy... and lots of fun.

ABOVE: Then he found out that the dogs didn't really enjoy his 'company'.

ABOVE: Tallulah decided Dante's little seat was a better option.

I've developed a cracker jack headache this morning... so fingers crossed it goes before I have to leave for Hospice.

Well... it's been an eventful afternoon.
I had a bit of an incident on the way home from Hospice... but will talk about that tomorrow.

Today's treasure:

 ABOVE: This rather nice winter dress... it's pure wool by the feel of it.  It will be great for next winter.  $1.00 !

ABOVE:  This lovely necklace, I've had my eye on it for weeks and today I just couldn't leave it there any longer.   

I also got about 6 wooden picture frames of various sizes, for me 'doodle' art pictures.

Bex cooked a lovely spaghetti bologniese for dinner.  I love not having to cook.

Excitement in the house.  Steve is about to buy a van for his work.  He's on the hunt and may have found a good one to look at, hopefully tomorrow.

So... I think that's me for the day... I'm going to have a nice, relaxing evening, probably watching TV tonight.  I've got a bit of eye strain from sewing so much the last few days, so am giving it a few days break.

End of Day:  a good day, with a bit of a 'blimp' at the end.  More on that tomorrow... I'm 'saving' it till then! *smiles*
nite nite


  1. My Collie Ollie LOVES wool. HE loves yarn, roving and felted wool dryer balls. I bought a pair of Wool Haflinger clogs and Ollie was highly "interested" in them - So I returned them as a precaution!

  2. haha, I guess Bex will be making her knitting bag puppy proof :-)
