I wasn’t in the least expecting to have a spaniel or a Friday Sewing Finish this week (although I do have a crochet finish) but because we have two cats coming to live with us we thought we’d better get a puppy.
To elaborate a little, my eldest daughter is coming back to live with us and bringing her two cats and a rabbit. I initially thought it would be a good idea to let the cats settle and get a puppy in the spring but then we decided that it would be better to get one now and get the whole business of increasing the menagerie and persuading them all to get along together over with in one go.
Then, because I went into a shop to buy freezer bags for a year’s worth of soup I made with vegetables from the garden whilst puppy watching and they didn’t have any freezer bags but did sell pet blankets I bought one one instead.
Then, because I have never got around to recycling these fabric trimmings and some unusably hideous pieces of polyester curtaining that came in a scrap bag (with some very nice linen) I decided to make a puppy bed and use them for stuffing.
And here it is!
