A patchwork dog this time!!

Morning all and Happy Good Friday to you. 

I have been dabbling with the sewing machine of late and so I have a bit of patchwork to share with you today. The pattern was in a C&C magazine and looked fairly simple and here's the result...

First of all having a mooch about the garden!!


having a rest on the bench after Suzy gave him the run around!!



It's nice having two dogs again!! I don't miss Mog every day now, but certain activities remind me that he's not here. Mowing the lawn for the first time was heartbreaking as he used to painstakingly follow me up and down, up and down for the whole hour it takes to mow our lawn.


One way......


...then the other!!
Suzy on the other hand will attack the mower once or twice and then lie down!!

I am taking my scottie to play here...

  5. Love your patchwork doggie, and I had to smile looking at your photos of your 'helper' doing the lawn. It's so sad when they're gone, but they share so much when they're here.

  16. Love your little patchwork Scottie dog, Sarah...very clever of you, and I love the fabric colours. (I couldn't sew a teatowel to save my life!).

    Dear old Mog...I love the picture of him on your sidebar...he looks so sweet, and that is so cute the way he followed you when you were mowing. I know what you mean about being heartbroken the first time you mowed the lawn after his passing...it's the 'little things', isn't it that can set us off. It is almost 2 months since we lost dear Pally, but it seems like yesterday, and there are so many 'little things' that we still miss about him.

    Hugs,
    Jennifer. x
