At my house



At my house we have adopted a lost cat called Sophie. Isn't she sweet? Here she is meowing and asking for some milk in a bowl. At my house I'm thinking about the great weekend we've just had. The sun was shining and everyone seemed happier & full of energy.


Bill had his haircut and is looking super spunky, I love it when his hair is short like this.


He is also getting into his new (op shop) yo yo and masterings some pretty tricky manoeuvres. I'm kicking myself for not buying the whole box of yo-yo's, at 20c each! What was I thinking?



I managed to get back into the world of sewing too, after being away it felt quite weird. I'm a bit excited about these new cardi's and I can't wait to get cracking on some new bunnies this week. Keep an eye out as I will be adding to the shop in the next few days.


Speaking of bunnies I'm just finishing these three for lovely Cathie.


I also finished a bed cover/quilt which I might put in my shop or take to the market. I"m loving the mismatched vintage fabric.


Not really loving the unpicking bit though. Things didn't line up properly first time round...


Because it's Spring we also did a bit of Spring Cleaning. We have a funny sort of alcove thing outside Lucy's room (which was an old shed that we turned into her bedroom) which connects it to the rest of the house. The dogs have always slept there but we are relocating them to another part of the deck so that Lucy can use this area as well as her room is quite small.


It was FILTHY after several years of doggy use. Spiders aplenty and lots of dust and the odd bone. Lucy, with some help from the others, cleaned all day and did a fantastic job! Can't wait till the next stage begins as it needs a little carpentry to seal it from the outside.


Here she is outside her bedroom having a well earned rest & snuggle with Max & Daisy.



You should see Freddie chasing Max around the garden. He is such a cheeky boy. I gave him a taste of his own medicine yesterday, although I didn't do any wing flapping like he does. I'm hoping to pick up his new companions this week, two new young ducks to keep him company.
What are you up to this week? Are you joining in with Lou Lou? I'm a tiny bit early, for once.
Hope you have a happy week, more sunshine please!! See you soon xo

ps: a special hello to the readers out there who don't like to leave comments, you know who you are! Here are some tulips just for you x

The bunnies look wonderful Beck! It seems Lachie and Bill have the same taste in haircuts! Your vintage bed cover looks quite pretty. I hope Fred likes his new companions too.

Wow, beck your quilt is gorgeous! And those bunnies...so lovely! How nice to have some hard working little helpers about the place, I love the energy the sun seems to give everyone..

Tania said...

Funny little alcoves are the best! I'm a bit of a nooks and crannies lover amongst all the open plan - there needs to be someplace snuggly to hide every now and then, don'tchathink?

Oh, I love the bunnies! Love them!

:)

Kate said...

I love that the kids all pitched in to help with the cleaning!

I also hate unpicking. It always happens when i'm in a hurry to do something or not concentrating. I had to unpick one bag 3 times. 3!! Since then i've been trying to focus more and only sew when I have enough time to relax and enjoy it.

Thanks again for the little pirate.
