Playing





Just kidding - it's not like that at all!   But it is wet and wild and neither Daisy or I are showing much inclination to go outside unless we really have to.



When Daisy's routine is disturbed she doesn't eat properly which meant very little food on Monday whilst we were out, and not a lot yesterday because she was knackered.  Her Ladyship made up for it this morning and then spent much of the day sleeping off a massive breakfast.



I spent it in the sewing room 😊😊 and Madam came to check up on me occasionally (or when she thought it was time for another Bonio).



Bit of a cheat really, this is 'no sew bunting' which I made up, but I expect someone's already done it to death on Pinterest or YouTube.  I realised life was far too short to sew all the fabric into neat triangles, then spend HOURS turning it right-side out and burning most of my fingers trying to press the seams neatly.  The liberal use of Bondaweb to glue two pieces of Christmas fabric together is not to be under-estimated!



I did make my own bias tape for the binding, and am particularly pleased with some rather fine top stitching to finish it all off !

    1. Thanks Kate, there is likely to be more bunting later today :)

      My little 'poster' is the inside of a shoe box lid - the outdoor brand Innov8 used the slogan for a while - and it makes me smile everytime I see it 🙂

    1. By the look of tonight's forecast Eileen, I don't think you will have much choice but to hibernate tomorrow. Stay safe, x

    1. Cheers kiddo, glad you approve of the imagery :)

      I am surprised the sloan appeals to you - after all, you're not in the slightest bit obsessive about anything, are you (pfnar, pfnar, pfnar!!)

  4. I found your lovely blog via Susan Smith's reading list. I (very) recently lost an extremely elderly cat so I'm enjoying your posts about Daisy and the challenges of being 'staff' for an elderly pet. Jx

    1. Hi Jan, welcome to Bag End, but I am sorry it is under such sad circumstances. We've been where you are now and it hurts like hell.

      In August 2009 we had to say goodbye to Ollie (Daisy's predecessor) and for the best part of a year leading up to it I was his 24/7 carer. But it's what you do ... take care. x
