I have decided that I just can't crochet a flat circle - what am I doing wrong? This is meant to be this....http://lallylou-lou.blogspot.com/2010/10/apples-from-teacher.html
But as you can see, erm..... it isn't. I have the same trouble with this so it has to be me. Remember this
The pups have changed so much over the last few days. They are standing up for a little bit and walking around, rather the the hairy slugs pulling themselves along.
And now I just need to sort this out. A selection of brooches to be finished off. The ideas are in my head but I have been struggling to find the time to sit down and add the backs and the beads to them. They will either end up on the Christmas stall I am thinking about doing or as presents etc. I have really enjoyed 'painting' with the fleece via needle felting. But really need to finish them off before I start anymore.
It is a beautiful day here in Bridport and I really should get out into the garden, but I am sat here on the sofa, puppy watching (they twitch so much when they are dreaming), Lily is laying on my feet, house is peaceful (Josie is on a school trip to New York - and doesn't want to come home) and I am just looking around my cottage, thinking. Do you ever wish you could sort out the mess that makes up your head? I'd love to learn how to empty it and just have what needs to be in there rather then all the craft ideas, life dilemmas, thoughts of what will happen in the future, just to stop it racing all the time, I might be able to sleep better then.
Actually, in fact, Lily has wind so I am moving. Nothing like that smell to bring you back to earth!!!!

And now the fun has started.... the process of weaning them off Lily and onto proper food. It isn't something for the light hearted, house proud person. In fact, if my washing machine packs up now I'd be, well, buggered actually.
They sort of loose their cuddle appeal for a few days. I seemed to spend yesterday in clothes that had puppy pee, poo and food over them. Whoops, seem to be in them again today, Ha Ha! Who cares, I am a slob, have no interest in dressing to impress, Lily loves me unconditionally!! (Clean underwear mind you!!) - But I suddenly remembered what I was wearing when I had walked half way into town, maybe the J's are right to be embarrassed by me. The sad thing is I didn't turn around, I just carried on!
Trying to get to grips with the new blogger layout and the 'easier' way of posting. I must admit that my brain can't function too well at the moment, but I think it will be a lot easier. I always found adding photo's a chore. They seem to go on a lot better, for me anyhow.
