Been a mundane week, work, sewing and dog walking. The big red quilt I made got posted to its forever home this week.
DD2 SIL and baby Ziggy were down for twenty four hours. They had come to see Bob perform in his show at Centre Stage. Did not think I would see Ziggy but she was up before I went out to work.
Crap quality picture, taken with my phone across a half dark living room.
One of my colleagues at work came across some unused curtains that she had had for years and wanted to know could I use them, So thanks to C for adding to my material stash. I am making her a piece of applique as a thank you.
Dropped Bob at gymnastics and then took Lilly for a walk. Her usual field that she really likes has been fenced off. Sadly this means all the dogs will now go into the already busy field so will make walking her there nearly impossible now.
Friends of ours are due to get married in May. Hubby is to be his best man. So we went down for a visit and a catch up on some of the details. The wedding is on Arran, my suggestion last year, and so we have booked a room and just need to get our ferry tickets come pay day. Took Lilly with us, and they put their dog in his cage in the hall. Have to say we were surprised there was no woofing or growling from her at all. She was even up at the cat nose to nose and being nice. Maybe there is hope yet. Here is Lilly getting round them and lying on the back of their couch watching out the window.
A lovely walk up to Failford. Not been up there for a while. Was rather muddy but Lilly loved her walk and her exploring in the woods. This little dog just loves to run and run.
DD1 took Spud to A&E as she had hurt her foot, they were not too worried as she is still weight bearing, apparently strapping it up can do more harm than good at her age. So as she was not going to be back in time I picked the twins up from nursery. One of the local gardens has two ducks so they showed me them on the way home.
Been busy doing various bits of sewing. Finished this one this week. This is my first piece that I have sold for the charity but I am holding onto it to let other people see my work in case they want to order.
Back at the optician. Have used the two lots of drops he gave me but not doing much good. He thinks my right eye is allergic irritation and my left infection. Gave me different drops to try and to go back on Monday.
Took Lilly to the vet as she seemed to be in pain. He seems to think it is a disc in her back and gave her an anti inflammatory injection. Made a difference very quickly and she came home and ate willing for the first time in a while. Not much they can do for it except injections but he is hopeful it should settle.
Received a food delivery yesterday for a blog post. So tonight's tea was oven cooked chicken and veg with some Dolmio sauce and a jacket potato.
Using up the last of my annual holidays this week. So been busy with the sewing machine. This is my first attempt at what they call cathedral windows. A very time consuming piece of work but very pretty when it is done.
Made this into an envelope cushion cover. It would benefit from a run over with the iron.
What have you been up to this week?
