The love goes on!

When I was at the Nostalgic Mix Fair in Totnes last month, I took with me my Scotties and Owls in Love cushions, plus a couple of Sleepy Owl hot water bottle cosies.  A very nice lady came up to my stall and spent a little while looking at them … then asked if I’d ever considered “doing” dachshunds.  And if not… would I?  Lilac?  So I thought about it – yes, it seemed like a good idea – and said I’d give it a go.  But I was all out of grey blanket.  “No problem” said the nice lady – “I can wait.”
Now she’s had to wait a little longer than I’d hoped – I just wasn’t able to lay my hands on a suitable grey blanket – until 10 days ago – when the most beautifully soft and snuggly vintage grey blanket – one of the softest I’ve ever had – found its way into my possession.  It had a couple of worn patches and moth nibbles, but nothing that couldn’t be worked around.  You’ve already seen the robins I made from it – and above are the dacshund cover and cosy that I’m just about to post to the nice (patient!) lady. 
The cushion had to be rectangular – and the dachshund just had to wrap herself around the cosy – dachshunds simply aren’t the right shape for nice square patterns.  Hope she likes them!!


Wow – if she does not – I do! They are lovely lovely – of course I love doxies 🙂 I have an old grey wool blanket from my dad when he was in the army… thanks for the inspiration! I adore your robins too 🙂 Thanks for sharing –


They are beautiful and well worth the wait, just need to get my hands on some lovely old blankets now.

Gosh! There's no way she won't absolutely love them. They are both simply gorgeous.

I've always had a 'thing' for Scotties but never had one. However, we do now have a black lab and I feel that before I give into my scottie 'thing' and make the scottie cushion I may just have to have a go at creating a labrador one.

Your blog is so inpsiring. Thank you for sharing your creations.


I have just found your blog through Florrie's. I love all your wonderful makes. I especially love the robins, so much so, I have just bought them from your lovely Etsy shop! So much looking forward to proudly displaying my new cushion!!
