MY BOY IS HOME AND SKELLY FINDS

Hello and welcome to all new followers thank you so much for following my blog i appreciate you being here.
We brought Charlie home yesterday he was a little quiet after having six teeth out two of which were root extractions and i asked them to clean his ears they were very dirty but he wouldnt let us clean them so the vet did it whilst he was out so
he earned quiet i think but today he is a bit more like himself so in a day or so he should be back to normal im glad to have him back and i think he's happier i hope he's happier and pain free.
Today i found some skeletons i have been looking for these for ages so im glad i finaly found some they were attached to a piece of twine but came untied easy enough now i thought i could dress some of these up and put some of my hats i made on them think that might be a fun look

MY LATEST EBAY PURCHASE

Hi im still waiting to go pick up charle we can get him at 3.30pm so thought i would blog to show you my latest purchase before we collect him. I got this this morning so im thinking of things i want to do with it, I thought i could pinch some of pauls ideas for finishing it i like the cotswold stone effect in buff colour tones i want to try the etching on it and i plan on having one wall without a window so it makes interior planning easier i thought i would make it a mystical shop selling witchy things and herbs maybe all things associated with spells and nature etc....

TRYING TO KEEP BUSY

Hi today has been a stressfull day we took Charlie to the vets this morning for his dental op but when we rang at 4.00pm to see how things went they hadnt operated on him and wont until tomorrow their excuse was there wasnt enough vets on today but they made the booking in the first place so how can they even come up with a stupid excuse like that. I worried all day hoping things went allright and now i have to go through it all again tomorrow im so angry with them..... dont get me wrong im glad Charlie is ok but he's been there all day without food for no good reason but at least tomorrow he will be pain free when they take his teeth out.

Ok so rant over i stitched a christmas mat and some cushions today and a wall hanging from a few days ago when im worried i stitch. Enjoy the pictures see you tomorrow with better news hopefully

IM A LITTLE WORRIED

Yeah....
as you probably know from reading my blog i have six cats five of which were rescues the last one being Charlie(picture in the side bar) well Charlie has had some major problems after being tossed out by his previous owners when they got tired of him instead of just asking someone if they could take him in i suppose they didnt want to inconvenience themselves..... so no home no food no warmth or shelter in freezing cold weather and believe me the winter we decided to take him was freezing. We took him in paid the vets bills were told he was border line hyperthyroid so they got him feeling better, but lately he's losing weight again so we got him checked out and yep you all guessed it he needs his teeth out now this is going to be the third one in as many months i have to say the other three are doing great so i dont dissagree with the vets descision but im just worried that he's too poorly to get through it. He has had some sickness the past couple of days but i think the need for his dental is great so we take him in tomorrow he'll be there overnight i always worry about my fur babies when they are away from home(god i sound like a worried mother) in some ways i feel like one haha but him being so poorly makes me worry even more i really hope he'll be ok after all he's been through in his little life and he's only 8 or 9 now not quite sure exactly. things could of been so different for Charlie if they had taken the time to rehome him properly but then we probably wouldnt have had the chance to care for him and im glad we have he's such a loving cat and i pray he'll be ok tomorrow. please if you see a stray animal you could possibly help but think would perhaps be too much trouble or someone else can do it please think again. I hope i can give you all some good news tomorrow and tuesday and be able to stop worrying

NOW FOR SOMETHING REALLY DIRTY!!!!!

Hello again
I have some pictures of pauls second build this is a crofters cottage but he opted for the dirty weathered kind and not the whitewashed sort this is based on a genuine welsh crofters cottage dating from the turn of 18th century. I Think he's done a great job but alas its not for me its now sat in millies miniatures shop the pumping station in Cardiff south wales. so if you happen to be near there please pop in and take a look it looks far far better up close in real life than these pictures could allow.

DURACEL BUNNY..... YEAH RIGHT

Im back for round two today i finally got out of bed got dressed although its a really good thing that no one can see me lol... i just took some pictures of my bath mats i stitched using the same pattern as the welcome mats but changing the word...like duhh lol...and using some softer colours i really like them although the colours dont look as soft in the pictures i used baby blue and baby pink but they look a lot harder i also took some pictures of inside my springwood house this is the house im working at right now making things to fill it up, the residents seem to be more settled than when we last paid them a visit. anything you see stitched i did and my cakes and teapots are in the kitchen i also made the apron hats bags laundry basket and bedding...wow i sound so up in the mini department what i should tell you is its a good thing you cant see half of them up close lol.....not clever.
Im up and about im not sure how to lay down i must have energy like the duracel bunny haha yeah i wish i still feel like crap but lying down didnt help either so i just as well try to keep going. see you tomorrow
