At Last, I have finally listed the Hare quilts for sale. They are NOT in the Etsy shop, but currently HERE on the gallery pages of this blog. If you are interested, do email me :)
The latest Quilt, 'The Hare Wheel' is very nearly finished, although this is progressing painfully slowly. Time is so short on these long summer days, I rarely come indoors until the light is fading. Quilting is definitely better suited to winter evenings.
Here is Daisy dog, in terrible disgrace.
Friday was a bad day in her eyes, right from the start. I was out all day, and she hates to be left behind. To add to that, when I returned home, I had to take Magpie to the vets to have the dressing removed from her tail, revealing a nicely healing cut with 8 neat staples in it ( that's a story for another time!). Daisy was left behind BY HERSELF, which she was most put out about. Later we all went out to a barbecue, and the dogs were left behind AGAIN. ( I hasten to point out that in between being left at home, they had been for two good walks). Several glasses of wine later, we wobbled home, and were horrified by the scene that met our eyes when we opened the front door. Magpie had chewed all the staples out of tail, and re-opened her cut, and due to the extreme wagginess of her tail, had flicked blood all over the kitchen. Daisy, meanwhile, had decided to remove half the stuffing from the sofa, and there was fluffy wadding everywhere. Luckily Steve and I both saw the funny side of it, particularly as Daisy was so racked with guilt that she was unable to look at us. Magpie, on the other hard, spent the rest of the evening staring mournfully at us, mortified at being made to wear the 'cone of shame'.
He likes to play with Sandpiper, who is much more tolerant than his mother, even though he keeps chewing her legs.
