The puppy is finally here, little Muppet has taken over the asylum!!! she may be tiny but she has already made her presence known, it was funny yesterday when we brought her home my other dog Freebie just kept wandering over to her and looking at her as if to say " what the hell is that?" today she has overcome all that and has made sure that little Muppet knows she is the boss here. I have had to go round the house making sure all tiny bits are put away, she likes to chew wires so they have been hidden, she follows us all over, we have to be careful as she is so small, have a look at the photos and see why I am in love

so tired its been a long day

I fit under the coffee table

my big teddy

checking out the garden

I am still the boss

not a mini tutorial

I have been resting, yes really I have, but I have this problem I cannot just sit and do nothing, so I got on with my Christmas decorations, I hear the groans now, but I think you will like these,
Last year at our craft club, one of the girls taught us these, not sure where she got them from, but I thought I would share them with you and show you how they are made
hope you will understand my pictures and instructions
so here goes
finished decorations

these can hang from your tree or anywhere you would like to put them

items needed, gold tiny pins polystyrene egg, fabric cut into 5cm x 5cm squares

cover one end with your fabric, then start making your triangles

5cm x 5cm square

fold into a small triangle

pin round the egg, this usually takes 4 at a time

keep going round with your fabric triangles

when you get near to the bottom cover with fabric

finished decoration

well that's how you make them, hope you enjoyed it.
very excited tomorrow we go and pick up the puppy, yes little Muppet is joining our home, let the madness begin.
thank you all for lovely comments.
I am enjoying this late summer, just what we need to keep us smiling, long may it last
see you all soon

thank you

I have been reading through your lovely comments and I thank you for your kind words and the encouragement you all give me, not doing much this week having to rest my body, it seems like I can work a week then have to take a week off, still at least by doing this I can continue with my creations.
see you all later
