Isn't it strange that once my blog was the only thing on my mind? I thought about the next post all the time. I took my camera everywhere so I could document my life and then I wrote about it and then  checked to see how many people had read or commented. I read hundreds of other blogs and always left comments. I worked out how many years I had left as Google declared how many mb of space I'd used up.

Well..I enjoyed all that and all the friends I made and met via the blog.

Now it seems fb is my new 'blog'. However I want to continue the blog for myself, even if no-one reads it because as I've said before, its a nice chronicle to look back on. 
Its almost 6 years old now. I can hardly believe it.

I've recently had another, private,  blog on the go for my online course which I have recently finished. I enjoyed it so much and it put me in touch with a lot of lovely people. 

This is mainly a craft blog I suppose and I like to note the pieces I've made . Here's the latest.
 I thought I'd try something a bit pictorial so this is the outcome. 

 I used pre-felts and constructed a background, and then machined it and hand embroidered it.

 Its perhaps a bit insipid..I can't tell. 

 I put pictures on my fb page and got a lot of new likes because it was shared. I apologise of you've seen it.

I have an opportunity to exhibit in a flower related exhibition so it might go there.

In other news.....Hetty had an operation on her eye lids last week. Poor little sausage had lashes, tiny ones, growing inside. It took our veterinary practise almost two years to agree with the groomer that she did indeed have eyelashes growing inside her lids, hence the horrible brown staining and permanently damp cheek.

So she had the op last Thursday and seems to have made a good recovery but on Thursday evening she was in a stupor, swaying and trying not to sleep. 
All is well now though and she's back to harassing the poor cat when he comes between us!

Here she is on Mothers' day before the operation, carefully positioned by a human!

More doggy brother..about to turn 60 and living on Costa del Sol, has just got himself and his wife a puppy.
Meet Stevie G. (He supports Liverpool FC) a Spanish Water dog.
I'm so sorry they're in Spain. I want a cuddle..but he already has a passport so maybe he'll visit. 
Whats Spanish for 'sit'?

He looks bigger than Hetty already and he's only 9 weeks old!
Finally..just for the record. My husband is in Ennis, Ireland, this weekend at a big music/concertina  gathering. I was going to go but decided against it. Not Ennis, but Venice was my desire.
So..very excited..we are having 6 days in Venice in May. 
Can't wait.
