**WARNING** Seriously CUTE piccies in this post!!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!!

Okay, so you’ve been warned!!!!!!!!!…..

Now, how cute is this!!??!! This is Lucy, she belongs to my dear friend and neighbour :o) ….January 10 025Isn’t she simply adorable :o)… yes I know Bear’s cute too, but I’m talking about the puppy ;o)!!!!January 10 027She’s a miniature daschund and Bear just couldn’t resist her …….January 10 034 he he he … neither could my DH!!! January 10 035 I think she’s seriously won a heart here LOL.

Well I haven’t only been playing with puppies, although that WAS fun!!! I’ve done some stitching too, mostly for Bear in her new revamped room. Firsly a new ‘skirt’ for her birdcage to catch all the messy seeds Bert and Ollie kick up!! December 09 293 And also a cute topper for her bedside tableDecember 09 322 with pockets to keep her remotes and phone in …… December 09 323I’m also working on something rather spesh, I’ll give you a little peek but you’ll have to wait to see the whole thing ….January 10 037Do you love the fabrics??? They’re “Somerset Cottage” from Moda, so soft and pretty, I LOVE them!!

I’m off to “batten down the hatches”, big storm coming through!!!

Bye for now …………….

Eww...I don't like storms! Sweet puppy, reminds me of my Molly. Thanks for sharing the topper, I might make one of those for my MIL.

Oh Joy they make me cry. I adore daschies and I lost mine little man 2 years ago January 10 - please give little Lucy a big hug from me next time you see her.
I love your topper for Bear what a neat idea. Hope you are okay with the storm

O soooo cute!! lovely pics Joy - and i can't wait to see what you are working on!


Cheryl said...

Hi Joy! Goodness me, I almost wrote 'ethel'... how silly :-)
that little puppy is the cutest darn thing.. so cuddly! And the perfect arrangement really - living next door so you can borrow for some play time. That table runner with pockets is very clever :-) and I think I spy something a little familiar in that new project ;-)
hugs Cheryl xx

Hi Joy,
Happy New Year!
I love the topper for the bedside that you did, I'm actually thinking of doing something like that to Marta bedside table. Thanks for the idea.

I need a table topper like yours with the pockets for remotes, etc. I must make one! I need a pocket for my remote, my Kindle, my heater remote, my finger nail file, my eye drops. Hmmm, I bet I can't have that many pockets! :) blessings, marlene

Allie said...

Ack - I want one! How cute is that puppy!
I love the skirt and the bedside table runner, what a GREAT idea to put pockets on it. I can't wait to see what's behind that sneak peek - it looks SO lovely!!!! Be safe in the storm!

Sharon said...

You are right, Lucy is just toooooo cute! These little daschunds are the best friends you could have. We have two miniatures but sorry to say they didn't stay miniatures!!! One of them weighs nearly 40 lbs. now and the other is not far behind. Still we love them desparately and they are very loyal friends to us. They travel with us in the motorhome and just love to travel. Hope you will enjoy this one as much as we have ours.

Valerie said...

Oh the puppy is so cute but I am in love with that remote and phone holder! Do you have a pattern? Would you share?


I want that "dog" my middle name is Lucille and I often sign things "Lucy" so she is all mine--sorry!!!
what a cute cage bottom you made and now we have to wait for another unveiling in blog land--oh my---hope the storm wasn't bad and that is it long gone--
Hugs, Di&co.
