Hallo Again

Well, here we are, 3 years later and I am finally back. 

It has been such a long   and hard time for us, with losing dear Tommy and health problems along the way, the time has simply flown away and so finally I have taken stock and decided it is time to get back into the real world and make contact again!

So many things have happened, too many to tell, suffice it to say that I am back quilting and crocheting  and looking for things to work on.  Lots of ideas running around in the head, which i will discuss with you all as we proceed.

So I must tell you, we have rescued a new boy poodle. He is not Tommy, nor will he ever be, but he is a great buddy for Priscilla who was being weighed down by the job of looking after the two of us and has taken him to her heart and appreciates his assistance! (or so we like to think)...

His name is Kosta, and he is a 12 year old boy who was a breeder. When we got him, he did not know how to be a pet, but after 14 months he is learning very fast!

Both he and Priscilla will be 13 years old , Kosta in December this year and Priscilla in February 2020. My how the years fly!

As you can see, they are both wearing their jackets today as it is only 20 degrees Celcius here and is overcast and miserable. They do both love to be warm and cosy...

I photo or two of the back garden nowadays:

Towards the Bali Hut, see how overcast it is today?

I think that will be it for now, I will be back in a day or two with some quilting and other pics.

Please leave me a comment so I know you have stopped by - Thanks!

Taking Time Off

I have just dropped by to let you all know that our darling Tommy passed away on 6 August.  He had been very ill with cancerous tumours in his lungs, and we spent all our time with him.

I have decided to take the rest of this year off and come back next year when I am over this awful event.

I know that you all will be shocked, but keep a lookout for me, because I promise I will be back.

Rest In Peace
Our beautiful boy

Baby It's Cold Outside!

Just dropping by to let you know that we shall now have until next Sunday, and then we will be back to normal and the word photo will be "black".
Of course I will post another "black" also!

Last night it was around 6 degrees Celsius here - the coldest temperaw ture for June since I don't know when. Tonight is shaping up to be just as cold, so we have the aircon on to try and keep us warm.  I hear that it has been below freezing elsewhere, so wer are pretty lucky I guess!

I have been very busy, knitting and crocheting my little heart away, still teaching myself to use the knitting machine, I really think that I need lessons!

I've started knitting some scarves - here's one that is finished:-

I thought that this little neck warmer was adorable -I've never seen anything like it, so I made one!

and here it is done up! Can't wait to wear it!

I am also working on a crochet blanket for the single bed in our spare room - almost finished but I took time out to make scarves!!

I'll show you more later this week, I've been too cold to get it all together for pictures!  So I'm afraid you will  have to wait for me to thaw out a l;ittle bit1!

Word Photo Challenge 2016 - Week 16

As I typr this tonight, the rain is simply pelting down - this is the best lot of rain tht we have had this year! It is wonderful to hear it on the rooftop, and see the water tanks full and overflowing! Our back garden is now underwater, hope there will not be too much flooding overnight, they are saying on the news that it is still coming over Brisbane and the south east, so there may be even more before this finishes.

We are safe and dry

So "black" was the word for today, and I'll guarantee that you can't guess what my picture is of!

Here is a not so good picture of our mini poodle, Tommy.  He is not so very well at the moment, though I suppose we should expect that, after all, he is 12 1/2 years old almost. He has been in and out of our vets over the past week, and we are just hoping that his xrays next week are better than the last.

Send him your best wishes, won't you - it looked like a tumour  in his lung last week, possibly. Like I said, we will know more next week after more xrays.

Join in with your black photo, and we can all visit you!!

It appears that something has happened to my Mr Linky - so you're off the hook till I investigate.

Word Phto Challenge 2016 - Week 15

Welsome back to week 15 of our challenge for this year!

Hope you all had fun with this word.

There are lots and lots and lots of directories, arent there?

I chose a couple from my computer:-

I thought that "phone directories" was as good a place as any to start

and I was right! So I chose 2 instead of the 100 or so!! I think that's renough to prove my point, don't you?

So join in with our Linky below and be a part of this week's word challenge!
