Again I must begin by thanking everyone for their kind wishes for Miss Daisy’s wellbeing. I am completely overwhelmed and so appreciative of all your caring and generosity at such a difficult time for my furry friends and I. Sadly, after a good beginning, Daisy is no longer reacting as well to the drugs so her vet is trying different combinations to try and find the dosages that will work best for her. She’s still enjoying all the extra attention though, and is particularly pleased to have “trained” me to offer her tablets hidden in chunks of tuna! Ben is also very pleased by this development. (the furry twosome behave rather like very young children so to avoid jealousy if I give something to one then the other must have some too). He LOVES tuna!
Alongside all this canine activity I am still packing of course. My workroom is all safely sorted, folded and tucked into large cardboard cartons, and now it’s time to move downstairs to begin rolling rugs and wrapping pictures. Moving day is in exactly one week’s time – in fact by this time next Tuesday we should be in our new home. But I’m getting ahead of myself! While sorting through my scraps I came across several copies of a little book I put together some time ago …
And no, I have no idea whatsoever what they were doing buried in my scrap basket! So Rosie decided to offer them as a giveaway both on Facebook and Instagram. She will post them anywhere in the world, so if you’d like the chance to win a copy then please just CLICK HERE to enter on Instagram and CLICK HERE for Facebook.
Finally .. I’m delighted to have completed the last softie in my Wind in the Willows inspired series – Ratty, seen here with the others in the series….
He’s different to earlier rats I’ve designed, with shorter legs, less pointed snout, smaller ears and nice markings on his limbs and tummy. His pattern will be in the July issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine, so watch out for him then!
