Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Friday Smile - Week 5

Yesterday was the day for the two hooligans to be tidied up again, hopefully to herald the start of Spring.  Even if it is not Spring yet, it does mean less mud etc brought into the house, and makes grooming easier.  Linda brings her big van, parks it on the drive, plugs in to our caravan power source and does everything out there, and takes the ton of excess hair away with her, not to mention the garden full of mud that they collect.
This first picture is of littley, Gemma, looking very mournful because her big pal, Flash has already gone out into the van for his wash and brush up, and she hates being left behind.  She has the most fluffy legs you could imagine, which are a nightmare to keep clean and tidy.

Here you can see both pups watching their Boss carefully as he might have a treat for them if they are good, both clean and tidy now after their visit to the big van.  Flash is still wearing his collar (second one as the first just got bashed to pieces).  He is recovering nicely from his "hot spot", but will still not leave it alone.  We do not want the hard work of the last month undone with one session of scratching, so he will wear it until the damage if fully healed.  Then, maybe, the damage to our legs and the wallpaper and doors can be repaired.

These two always make me smile, and they kept us both sane while we were coping with both our mothers deteriorating at the same time.  They are always pleased to see us and give us unconditional love.  They are always full of joy at any attention and activity, which is so infectious.

I hope these two hooligans make you smile a little today.  If you would like more pictures to smile at, just go across to see Annie, alias Wipso, at A Stitch In Time, to see even more.  Even better, post a picture of something that makes you smile and link it up.  Spread the joy.

Poor little Gemma, but aren't they both gorgeous after the haircuts.
Hope Flash isn't wearing his accessory for too much longer.
Thanks for the smile.
Have a good weekend.

Hi Maggie,

Your pups are just beautiful! I had to put the cone back on Muffin as her sore around her mouth has come back. Next may be allergy testing.

Now back to your WOYWW post!
