Anyone For Chocolate & Coffee?

This chocolate contains no calories or fat, so enjoy, guilt free!!

The mug rug is a swap gift from my lovely bloggy friend Katherine

Thank You very much to Karen at Journey of A Quilter who hosts the linky each week for those of us who stitch these little wonders... One Flower Wednesday is a great way to connect with other flower makers & slowly grow your own garden too...

7am this morning, and yes he does really sleep like that!

Speaking of slow, I had a disappointment with the Polka Dot Girls. I was stitching Block 1 stitcheries & realised that the fabric I was using was really not right. Even with its backing of weaveline, it felt thin & I realised that it had little nobby bits in the weave. How embarrassing to only notice that AFTER starting to stitch on it?! So I have purchased other fabric that is a very similar look (&better quality!), traced up the designs & will re-start the stitching by weeks end.

That is a great idea to make a flower from this fabric.

our doogie sleeps like that but in the bed under the doona with us!!!!!!!!!!! love your hexie too. looks like choc without the calaries too. better to fix the polka dots now rather than be disappointed later. maybe you might be able to make something from the first block so it doesnt go to waste

Darn, always disappointing when something like that happens. Maybe those ones you started can be used for something else...we all make those sorts of off decisions sometimes and wonder what we were thinking...funny puppy, at least he looks nice and comfy, Jindi gets herself into positions sometimes that I really wonder how on earth she can be comfortable enough to sleep but she does!

Don't let a little hiccup dampen your spirits...your Polkadot Girls is going to be awesome! What sort of dog do you have? Looks a bit like my Cavalier King Charles :)
