Puppies and Politics

I am sorry I haven't posted but I have done no sewing at all. We have been on no trips anywhere interesting, mainly because Rupert gets so car sick even over 3 miles. I had stayed with him whilst house training was going on and that has worked. But he is a chewer. He will chew anything and everything. Everything. Money, chairs, cables, cushions, magazines, tissues, books, phones, ipads, anything and everything. It is getting better but we still have a long way to go. I have made a tea of chilli powder and put it into a spray bottle. Whenever he finds something new to chew, it gets sprayed. He has chew toys and bones. He chews those as well...... But he is cute and lovable. He has saved my sanity over Brexit and Trump. Whenever I despair he gives me a cuddle and for a few minutes all is right in my world.

Did I mention he chews everything? I had one day when I stitched a few hexagons, but you guessed it. I put it out of reach on a table to turn off a timer, and he ate it. Luckily I caught him before he swallowed the needle....

So if you like puppies, see how big he is getting. If not, just ignore this post.

I miss my quilting, but I love my dog more.

Lovely way to start the day.

I can reveal the quilt now it is in the show and been judged at the World Quilt Show in New Hampshire.

I wasn't expecting to hear until later on today if it had won anything so to find it has a blue ribbon (American ribbons are colour coded) was a wonderful way to start the day.
Happy Dance!
