Hi you crafty bunch!!
Sorry I’ve been absent for a while, it’s been one of ‘those’ years when it comes to my health issues, flare up after flare up in my spine!! I was just starting to recover from lumbar issues, thankfully just in time to go away for 5 days with my parents, over on the other side of the country, to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary , and then within a week of getting home my sciatica flared up for the 3rd time this year and I was stuck in bed for yet another week until I could walk again, aaaaargh.
On the plus side I had just started making doggy bow ties (having had a friend request a couple of collars plus a bow tie before we went on hols), which I almost entirely sewed by hand anyways, so that gave me something to keep me busy sewing in bed when I was able!! And my gal sat by me most of the time, being the adorable Saluki Fox Nurse Lady Arwen
I don’t usually post stuff on here that I ‘make for a living’ (e.g. I don’t sell enough to have to pay tax, but it buys me fabric to make clothes with now and again ) but since it’s all I’ve been able to make this last month I figured I’d post 'em! Plus they’re super cute, and Mr Loops captured some cute piccies of Arwen wearing one this morning, and I knew you’d all appreciate that!
I used elastic on the back so that they can be easily slipped onto a collar and with minimal irritation to the doggy!
And here are a couple more cute piccies of Arwen doing some modelling!!
Aaaaaanyways, I’m still far from being recovered but at least I can sit at my desk and do a little sewing now, and yesterday I managed a little walkies with Mr Loops and Arwen out at Lydney Lake!
Hopefully see you all soon with my next faaashion make (which will hopefully be a hoodie, all being well…)
