A close up of the fabric, another poppy print, again a bargain from the Fabric guild.
Once I have showered I will be wearing this one, it is cooler today and this fabric is a bit heavier,as is the lining. With a long sleeved tee shirt under it will be perfect, I may wear a belt and then again may not.
A close up showing the lining.
We took the dogs out for a walk around 8:00 last night and it was still very warm, they were happy to stroll for 30 minutes.
This is what happened when we got back, I just had time to make a cuppa....
You can just see his shortie socks, he has asked for a couple more pairs.
Poor thing only has 9 pairs!
Herbie just managed to open his eyes a smidgeon but Ben was out for the count.
They stayed like that till it was time for bed.
I had a little time in the sewing room during the afternoon and ran up some white cotton bags, no handles, just for storing bread in the bin, not That bin, the bread bin. I have put straps on a couple for hanging onions and garlic, string bags are all very well but every time that I touch them there is a shower of little bits of dried skin to deal with.
I finally made Francesca a Dresden Plate cushion with the extra block from her quilt, I will post a photo tomorrow as I forgot to take one. I also made a start on quilting the lap quilt, I will photo the back so the surprise is not spoiled.
A quick break for a shower.
Now I really must get these dogs walked before they drag me bodily off the sofa. Herbie has been to sit by his lead at least 6 times.
i love the poppy print dress, did you make it yourself , its very nice, both dresses are, would you mind telling which pattern you usedReplyDelete
I did make them both, they are from my own patterns. They are both based on commercial patterns but have been adapted so much as to be almost self drafted. I do not remember the pattern number for the shift dress but am almost certain that I blogged about it last year. I think that it was a Simplicity pattern, I know that it was half price from Hobbycraft.Delete
Herbie is definitely becoming quite a character! I love hearing about him. It's good to see that he and Ben are happy together too.ReplyDelete
He is developing by the day, Ben is happy to snuggle up with him but when he becomes too boisterous he gets a sharp telling off.Delete
I love those fabrics. Lovely and summery.ReplyDelete
I do like colour but not always strident, sometimes softer shades are perfect.Delete
Bless Herbie, he's a good Fitbit keeping you active.ReplyDelete
He certainly does keep me on my toes, he is snoozing now but in a nanosecond he turns into a bundle of pure energy.Delete
Nothing turns a house into a home than a doggy or two snuggled up on the sofa. I love the poppy dress, that's so pretty. It's much cooler here today but it's set to warm up again at the weekend.ReplyDelete
What lovely dresses. The lining on the second photo is gorgeous, as are Ben & Herbie.ReplyDelete
Looks like Herbie and Ben have bonded well.ReplyDelete
You are right, pretty sure it was a Simplicity pattern you started with.
The dogs are so cute! I love when they "stack", my pugs used to do that too! The poppy print is really pretty!ReplyDelete
Love the poppy fabric, delightful. A joy to see them both snuggled up together for a nap.ReplyDelete
I love the floral dresses. Poor Herbie, dogs have such a knack for making you feel guilty don't they. Jane xxReplyDelete
