Hubby’s work is considered an essential service and he’s been informed that even in a strict shut down they will be required by the Government to keep operating. Great […]

Canine Capers.


Grog has been helping me send out our Birthday Bash giveaway prizes today.

Dog vs. Dog


Hey guys, I’ve had an awful lot of requests for templates for different dogs breeds. How would it be if I made a template pack to go with the Pug’s Life / Kennel Club quilt patterns? You could insert your preferred dog breed without me having to make a new quilt each time. xx

I sometimes forget…

Not your fault but mine. I had a lovely birthday, I’m not really counting backwards, and I’m not worried about my jiggly bits – […]
