Have a little faith!

Yesterday I blogged that Daisy was having a terrible day!  Whilst that was undoubtedly true, there seemed to be a number of people who took some delight in her misbehaviour with one person actually suggesting that I give her back!  Well today she is being an angel.  She has slept for most of the day (probably tired herself out yesterday) and has had no accidents in the house - in fact she hasn't had any accidents in the house (I don't count using her training pad in this ) for several days - including yesterday!  So, no, I am not giving her back.  I have faith that she is growing up!  She is only 3 1/2 months old!



So, rant over.  Today has been a day of rest - as a Sunday should be.  I slept really well and then dozed again in front of two hours of seeing programmes on Create and Craft.  First job on the agenda was to complete block 2 from The Splendid Sampler challenge.  Block 2 was released on Thursday but I just haven't had time, until today, to complete it.  It is a challenging square consisting of 36   1 1/2 inch squares - some of which are made from half square triangles.  Once completed the square then requires a little hand embroidery - a job tailored made for an afternoon sofa visit!

Next up on the task list was getting ready for the craft group tomorrow afternoon.  We are making a mini tote bag from The Splendid Sampler so I have cut out all my pieces and printed off some instructions for everyone to follow (we don't have internet access for everyone to use at the hall).


After lunch and the usual housework issues (loading the dishwasher and washing machine etc) it was time for the afore mentioned embroidery plus some more handsewing from the Anni Downs quilt.  After I had sewed the body of one butterfly the phone rang - Wendy, who never asks for help, was in trouble with her shoulder.  I went round and persuaded her to go to the Urgent Care Centre in Louth where she was treated and a prescription issued.  That all took the best part of tow and a half hours but we are lucky to have such a local facility - Wendy was seen almost straight away - the treatment took the time.  (Me - I caught up with British Bake Off!).

So I guess this evening will see the afore mentioned hand sewing and completion of block 2 - mind you block 3 has now been released and seems worse than block 2 - there are 20 squares measuring 1 inch by 1 inch!!  Ah well - that's for another day I guess!  I'm off to give Daisy a cuddle and defend her from her critics!
