I am planning on making smaller versions of this chap in brown and white.

Dylan on the sofa just could not keep out of the action.

I have been looking for my own ideas of hiding the dreaded loo roll.  I think that this is pretty ok, will be doing them in a different colour and designs.  This is my own design.  I am hoping to develop a range of them.

Celebrate 100 Years Of Royal Albert

Just look at these beautiful pieces of craftmanship and colour.

The 100 Years Collection at Royal Albert celebrates over a century of outstanding design, floral heritage and tea drinking. Enchanting tea-sets take inspiration from a different decade since 1904. From the pastel mint and floral lines of the art deco thirties to the rich regal tapestry of the 1900’s…you’ll be spoiled for choice and can mix and match for a fusion of modern-day romanticism and old-school nostalgia.

Vertical Gardening

Todays adventure

As with every day I get up take dogs out for their early morning walks, then come home have breakfast – today I got ready and went to the shops to buy their food and biscuits and mine of course.

Today has been really nice, the sun has shone and there is a cool breeze, but not cold as such.  People have been busy doing their own thing and Carrefour was not too crowded – it seems to be the only place I can get the assorted biscuits for the dogs, their treats.

Today I met someone who has been here for over 18 years and still enjoying being here in Spain.  I myself although I do love it here find that being on my own now has its drawbacks.  Getting out to meet people is  real must for me in the next few months.  I know that there is so much going on.

I have decided to concentrate of making some things for the craft fairs this year so am busy knitting away making toys which I really enjoy making.

These past few days I have made some polar bears and their cubs and a zebra – these are in miniature bit trying for my hands as I have an injured right hand which makes stuffing the animals really difficult.  Ah well so we move on.  I am in the process of making a purple teddy which when completed I shall be exhibiting my works here on my blog.  Along with the places I buy the yarns and patterns.

So now I am off to do a cup of coffee and do the ironing – well it has to be done.

Have a great day everyone.  Look forward to promoting my own toys shortly.  But as a taster here is something I did not long ago.
