Good morning to all on this exciting Wednesday.....Exciting? I hear you say. Why?
Since we had to have our old furry friend, Rocky, put to sleep on March 1st we have been searching for a new puppy but wanted one 8 weeks old around the beginning of June because we have a holiday booked in May [the first proper holiday in about 6 years :-) ]. We have been waiting patiently to hear if an expected litter we had found would include any little girls and Monday we heard that the mummy had had a litter of three puppies and one of them was a little girl.....
Meet Milly. She is a little cairn terrier [the same as our last three dogs] and she was born at nearly midnight on 16th April. She is just 2 days old here and isn't she a cutie? We will go to visit her when she is about 4 weeks old then she will come to live with is when she's 8 weeks old....and I can't wait :-)
So this is what's on my desk today....3 new little fleece blankets, two new bed pads and 4 new bed pad covers all made ready for the arrival for our new little friend Milly.
You might think I'm totally mad but the fleece blankets were just £6 for the piece so they worked out at just £2 each and the bed pads and covers were completely made out of my stash...bargain eh?
The other thing that is going on at the sewing machine this week is ATC making ready for the swap in May. Alas I will be missing in action on the actual day but would really love anyone who would like to swap ATCs this year with me to email me your name and addresses ASAP so I can put them ready to be posted in my absence.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I plan to write a list of names in a post as you contact me so you know I've put your name on one of my ATCs....do it now so I know how many more ATCs are needed please.
The other thing I wanted to say was there were a few blogs I was unable to leave messages on last week....my Ipad has been playing up. I did manage to read all that called on me and really love seeing what you've all been up to....there really are a lot of talent out there. Sorry if I didn't manage to leave you a message.
