Holiday, Hockey, Horton’s and Hound

I’m back from my quick break to Toronto. I’ve only just sorted out some photos, and I’m not going to totally bore you with them all so I’ll give you the highlights. Still this is quite a long post by my standards with a couple of important pieces of news (in my life anyway) so […]

Friday Life Recap

I’ve not been blogging (or Instagramming) as much lately, mostly because I’ve been doing other boring work that helps to pay the bills and not really sewing much. Work has been busy and will get busier next week and I’m finding myself falling asleep in front of the TV in the evenings. Once I have […]

Window shopping for dogs

Fletcher is getting worse very quickly- not in how he is acting, he still doesn’t notice anything is wrong (I don’t think, though he did try and spin round to see what was wrong yesterday), but the amount of blood is beginning to frighten me. We’ve had a discussion and not having a dog is […]

Aside from housework, a jaunt to Morrisons, a nap, reading Giant George’s book, watching Snakes on a […]

Top dog…

That’s what you get when you’re trying to be thrifty and at the same time guess how something should look just […]

The Birthday Cake

Here’s the cake I made for OH’s birthday as my first ever sugarcraft attempt, and also the biggest bit of baking I’ve ever done! And here’s what it was modelled on…

Dog Baths and Workshops

WARNING: Image heavy post with lots of dogs! After ages of meaning to try out the Wash and Wags soap from Just Soaps, we finally got round to it yesterday. Jane from Just Soaps sent me one as a little something for Fletcher after my post about the failed dog show a while back. He […]


So I thought I would post up my first press release, mainly because I trust WordPress not to lose it, and I trust my computer a lot less! The newly established jewellery range, PennyDog, by its very name and logo is influenced by the greyhound. Founder Kerry Wilkinson named her company after her newly adopted […]
