Hello Everyone,

Sorry I haven't been on here for a while - I have not been idle though.
I have recently completed my eldest nephew's wedding cake for his wedding which is this Thursday Oct. 9th 2014! I have also been crocheting for our impending 3rd grandchild who is due on Oct. 17th 2014 :o)

Chester, our little dachsie, has turned into the most adorable pet! He is such a character - he does not surface from his bed on a morning until around 10.30am - sometimes later!!! He buries himself completely under his duvet, so much so, that you cannot tell he is even there!
He is gentle & playful & can sit up & beg for Britain! I find it hard to resist him - he also likes to shimmy up behind my neck when I am on the laptop or crocheting. He curls himself around the back of my neck with his head on my shoulder like a mink stole ha ha ha!

Some photos for your perusal ------

Hello All,

I hope that you had a very happy Christmas & I wish you all a very happy new year if somewhat a little belated!
We had a fabulous Christmas - plenty of R & R & family get togethers - it is sad though how quickly it is all over with after all the planning & build up to it & how bare our homes look once the tree etc have been taken down! :o(

We are having  a rather wet winter, but fortunately seem to have escaped the flooding which has taken over rather a lot of the UK. We have only had 3 mornings when our car windscreens have been frosted, so it has also been rather a mild winter up till now.

There are wonderful signs that spring is hot on winter's heels - our snow drops are ready to flower soon & my little pots of Tete a Tete are springing into life :o) The days are getting a little longer too thank goodness!
I thought that you might like to see a photo of dear Chester in his Christmas bandana which I made for him & also the little, knitted teddy bear I made for my youngest Granddaughter Eleanor! So with that I shall say TTFN ---------
