I took my little pal for his annual shots.  While waiting he approached another dog in the waiting room.  Ouch, the dog struck out and hit poor Casey on the eyelid. His eyes quickly became bloodshot.  he had an impromptu operation and wore this little "hat" for a few weeks.  Not a happy little dog.

Tumbling Blocks

I started to make a tablecloth with these diamond-shaped pieces of batiks.  Still a long way to go.  When I eventually sew them together, I will need to place them facing the same way.

A little jacket for a little girl

This was the easiest knitting I've done for a long time. Thick yarn and size 5.00mm needles, it as knitted from the right sleeve to the left sleeve.  I added the buttons later.

Soft toys

I found patterns for these toys in craft books, I gave them to my two younger  grandchildren.  They  received one of each.

My granddaughter's party dress

Here is a little dress I made for my granddaughter when she was 3 months old.  I found the pattern on Annie's sewing site.  It ties on the shoulders.

A going away gift

This quilt belongs to a young girl who was in our Sunday School but moved  from Australia to England last year.  Each of the other children drew a picture for her on fabric,  the fabric  was passed onto me and I made this.  It was presented to her on their last day.
Part of my back garden is in the background,

Teddies that surf and kitties that swim

This is a floor rug that I made for my new granddaughter.  As the title says, it has lots of cats and teddies.  The backing has a rabbit scene stripe, very colourful.
I have been working on a large Storm at sea Quilt for quite a long time and still haven't completed it.
This is part of it but I had to turn it sideways. It is 60" X 30.  The lower half of the other side has since been added and I am planning to put a Mariners Compass in the top right corner.  I was planning to give it away.
