So - my day started well - fairly inclement weather which has got nice and sunny as the day ahs gone on. I was able to finish that pesky navy block so that all three are now completed.
Then, listening to the Archers Omnibus, I cut out and sewed the first of the three orange blocks (yes it is a rusty orange in real life!) before venturing out in the cold but sunny weather to walk the dogs - Daisy is now so used to walking that she pulls (not hard because she's not heavy enough but enough to raise her front paws off the ground when `I won't let her!)
So far so good - I even enjoyed some of that campfire stew that I cooked yesterday with a nice jacket potato for lunch - very slimming world! The dogs had a nap and everything was calm. How quickly things can change.
I decamped into the study to do some church accounting work and the dogs followed me into their bed curling up together. Then I heard the ominous "chomp chomp". Looking down Daisy was chewing the ends of a toilet roll tube. That's okay I thought. "chomp chomp" - now it was a ball point pen that she had found. I took that off her before she could explode the ink inside. "chomp chomp" Now it was a knitting needle - not to be advised! She hasn't got enough teeth to do any real damage but it could hurt her so that was taken off her. "chomp chomp" - now it was an ink cartridge! I honestly don't know where she finds these all - there is nothing around her bed, she doesn't seem to move, the cartridges are up high next to the computer but!!!!!!! I guess the exercise of getting up and taking it off her is good but some peace and quiet would also be good. Daisy is 4 months old now so , in human years, going through the terrible twos - I guess that explains it then.
The next block in the Splendid Sampler is an embroidery one. One of the reasons that I used a predominantly red colour way so that any redwork would fit in so I am highly delighted! Now - where's that light box to start tracing?
