WOYWW....

Good morning to all on this exciting Wednesday.....Exciting?  I hear you say.  Why?

Since we had to have our old furry friend, Rocky, put to sleep on March 1st we have been searching for a new puppy but wanted one 8 weeks old around the beginning of June because we have a holiday booked in May [the first proper holiday in about 6 years :-) ].  We have been waiting patiently to hear if an expected litter we had found would include any little girls and Monday we heard that the mummy had had a litter of three puppies and one of them was a little girl.....




Meet Milly.  She is a little cairn terrier [the same as our last three dogs] and she was born at nearly midnight on 16th April.  She is just 2 days old here and isn't she a cutie?  We will go to visit her when she is about 4 weeks old then she will come to live with is when she's 8 weeks old....and I can't wait  :-)

So this is what's on my desk today....3 new little fleece blankets, two new bed pads and 4 new bed pad covers all made ready for the arrival for our new little friend Milly.
You might think I'm totally mad but the fleece blankets were just £6 for the piece so they worked out at just £2 each and the bed pads and covers were completely made out of my stash...bargain eh?


The other thing that is going on at the sewing machine this week is ATC making ready for the swap in May.  Alas I will be missing in action on the actual day but would really love anyone who would like to swap ATCs this year with me to email me your name and addresses ASAP so I can put them ready to be posted in my absence.
My email address is wipso@toucansurf.com and I plan to write a list of names in a post as you contact me so you know I've put your name on one of my ATCs....do it now so I know how many more ATCs are needed please.






The other thing I wanted to say was there were a few blogs I was unable to leave messages on last week....my Ipad has been playing up.  I did manage to read all that called on me and really love seeing what you've all been up to....there really are a lot of talent out there.  Sorry if I didn't manage to leave you a message.
Hugs,
Annie x

Milly is so cute, you will love having her around! Glad you're getting a holiday, much deserved. I can't commit to multiple atc making this year, there aren't enough hours in the day... Helen #1

Sewn ATS, sounds intriguing. BJ was #4, then #16, finally #17 but could end up as #15 if my incorrect links are removed - what am I like!

Welcome to the world little Milly, you will be so loved when you get to your forever home. I'm looking forward to watching her settle in Annie.
Meanwhile have a great creative week

Aw Milly is so cute. I love my Mr Baxter. He is getting old now but I know I will get another dog when he's gone as I don't think I'll cope with the isolation I often feel without the company of a dog. Love your blankets and dog bed pads. Clever you. I will email you so we can swap. Take care Zo xx 35

Hi Annie, Milly is gorgeous. I'm waiting to go get a rescue cat, which I've put off until after our holiday next week. I'll be emailing you for the swap,:). Love that paw print fabric! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #8 xxx

Aww! What a cute puppy! I bet you can't wait! But going on holiday is also something nice to look forward to.
I like the doggie blanket. This little miss is going to be utterly spoilt. But I'm also thinking of your new carpet....
Thanks for visiting earlier,
Have a good week,
Lisca

The puppy is so cute! I used to have a rottweiler. I miss her terribly. But we just travel too much right now to get another puppy. I hope you enjoy your vacation and your new little bundle of joy! You sew your ATCs? Wow!

Neet said...

First of all thanks for visiting me yesterday whilst I was out and about.
Guess What? Milly has stolen the show. Oh Annie, she is gorgeous and I wouldn't be able to wait for her arrival either. Don't you just want to hold her and smell that puppy smell? Am sure we will get lots of photos of her when she arrives, ... please.
Now was there something else on your blogpost?
Love Neet 5 xx

Diana Taylor said...

Oh I've just fallen in love! Milly is the sweetest little girl - I hope we see lots of her when she finally gets to join her new family. I love the fleecy fabric with paw prints on - how cosy and cute! Hope you have a great week,

Hi Annie so very thrilled you're getting an ultra cute new little puppy in eight weeks time.
A bug congrats by the way also on your wedding anniversary love your red rose up above. Would swap but suspect my making atcs will be too late, as I'm AWOL for while too....and I'm not organised like you. Sorry. I have some lovely ones of yours, too. I love them.
Thanks so much for the inspiration,
