William and Kate

Warm congratulations to Prince William and Kate.

I did say I wasn't going to watch because there has been so much hype about it, I was getting fed up of it...... but....... this morning I just got carried away by it all and sat and watched them get married.

Then had to go out and do some shopping so recorded the rest.......


Here's to the future King and Queen.

Lets Go For a Picnic.....and a Giveaway

Remember the wall hanging I showed you

Well, it's not a wall hanging any more!!  One of my lovely friends said it reminded her of a picnic quilt - **light bulb moment** - what a good idea... I now have a little picnic quilt


I used the charm pack I won from Jaybird Quilts and guess what Julie is hosting another GIVEAWAY for the same fabric but this time it's for two FQ bundles 8 yards in total, wow, and that's not all Julie is giving away one of her patterns too - listen, just forget I told you this because I want to win it......Hey where are you!! oh it's too late you've gone to enter.

A Very Special Day

Today is a very special day at our house, someone is having a special birthday, someone is 18 years old today...


Here she is waiting for someone to adopt her, she is the one on the right.  She was 6 months old when we got her, the woman we got her from had rescued her and her brothers and sisters before their owner drown them....I know....hard to believe anyone would do that.

Sorry its a small pic but our camera wasn't that good in those days.  We were told to keep her outside in a kennel because she was very distructive, always ripping things up and knocking her water dish over.  We soon found out that she was only doing this for attention, and, because she got alot of attention and love with us, she stopped being naughty - well not as naughty as she had been, just puppy naughty!!

"Please will someone get my ball"  Hubby had kicked the ball for her and it had stuck between the handle and the door.......he never was able to do that again!!

This was one of her favourite spots when we first moved to France.

Now it's here.....

or here......

Will someone tell me why I bother making nice soft beds when it seems Lady would prefer a pillow of potatoes!?!?!?!

These days she can't see very well and can't hear very well, though she has ALWAYS had selective hearing!  She has her good days when she still thinks she can chase after Sam and catch him and she has her bad days when she won't eat and sleeps all the time. Sam is her eyes and ears now, if he moves she follows (especially at food times!) But all in all for her age she does really well.

Happy Birthday my little Lady.

Love you loads.

Sam's New Bed and a Giveaway

Today, Sam got a new bed, I think he likes it.....

"is this mine? I'll just sneak on and see what happens, is she looking?...she hasn't told me to get off yet"

"just give it a test run see if it's soft enough"

"I love you Mum......"

In case anyone is thinking "she hasn't finished it - it's still open on one side, well it is finished, Sam is like another JRT I know, he likes to actually get inside his bed on a night, like a sleeping bag ...... they're clever these JRTs.


Raggedy Station is having a giveaway to promote the opening of her new store, the draw will be done on Friday.  You can win 12 fat quarters.

I'm off outside into the sunshine now, it's been 35 degrees today woo hoo summer has arrived!!

What Have I Been Doing?

I seem to be moving from one project to another just lately, which is so not like me. I won a charm pack and pattern from Jaybird Quilts

so decided to have a go at a pinwheel wall hanging, have pieced it and got the border on but not quilted it yet.

In the evenings I have been doing a stitchery

Can't decide what other border to cute are those little butterfly buttons!

This weekend I have cut into my Pom Pom du Paris layer cake - can't tell you how scary that was!!  I am doing Schnibbles Brocante by Carrie Nelson This is how far I got:

All the quarter square triangles need trimming to 4" square, not my favourite bit, the squares aren't in the right order yet I just laid them out to see what it looked like.......

Oh and did I mention I am doing a Bronwyn Hayes stitchery quilt -  no pictures yet.

Sooooo as you can see no finishes but plenty of starts.........

And I'd just like to say THANK YOU to my followers I love that I now have 50!  leave me a comment if you stop by, I love to hear from you.

Hugs Linda x
