(with apologies to Dolly & Whitney, both of whom sang it beautifully)
After the snowy disruption of the past 2 weeks, normal scheduling was due to re-commence this week - in my mind anyway - yet somehow things got turned topsy-turvy once more and here we are at Thursday again already.
This week, it was nothing to do with the weather, and all to do with our two furry babes.
The good news is that the Ben-dog's sprained elbow has healed well and she is almost back to her usual bouncy self. But the bad news is that we've spent the past few days shuttling the Jerry-dog backwards & forwards to the vet whilst they do all possible to avoid having to operate & remove the "as-yet-unidentifiable-on-the-x-ray" object that she has ingested. Sigh . . . Labs will be Labs - everything is fair game in their world . . . Sniff then eat, seems to be the default rule of thumb.
So, whilst I've been fretting over the poorly pup, a little distraction in the form of creating was called for.
Meet Olivia Owl - ain't she sweet?
She took a lot longer to create than I had anticipated, but I am very chuffed with how she's turned out.
Olivia Owl is a gift for a special little girl who's coming to visit in a few weeks time, and I'm hoping to make another one for her brother too
. . . in more "boy colours", naturally ; - )
Now that I've got the template cut out and the methodology sussed, hopefully the next one won't take quite as long.
And I'm busy-ing away making & putting together the goodies for All4MeggyMoo's I Love Hearts swap. I can't show them to you yet, but here's a behind-the-scenes sneaky peek:
Hope you're having a happy crafting week,
