I hope you have all had a good week and a nice relaxing weekend.

Our weather is still cold, with some showers, but also a lot of sunshine.  

Birds are starting to check out nest boxes and Daffs are almost out.  Crocus and Snowdrops have been out a couple of weeks now.  Shrubs are showing buds, as are trees, so spring isn't too far away.

Polly and Albe are getting fed up with the weather.  They'd much rather be outside in the garden, but even they are doing their business and then coming more or less straight back in.

Thought it was time for a few shots of Albe.  He is such a lovely lad, but he doesn't like his photo taken:)




 I got him in the end:)



This is Polly's new night coat.  It's so well made I have ordered another one, but that will be in a different pattern.



I treated myself to this Swiss Cheese plant the other week.  My very old one had died.



I have put a few new crafting projects on my PurplePoppy Crafting page.


Well you all take care.  Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

On my desk are the makings for a Tag Swap.  We had to do three tags, one for a lady, one for a child and one for a man.



Backing papers and embellishments on.

Below they are finished off with Washi Tape and Ribbons.



Hope you all have lovely WOYWW.

Happy Valentines Day

Well our weather has thrown almost everything at us this week.  We've had sunny and dry days, but really colds winds.  Torrential rain, gale force winds and cold.  Whatever the weather it has been so cold:)

Polly and I wish you all a Happy Valentines Day.  Polly is still looking for her Valentine.





Even if it is cold, Polly still wants to go for her early morning walk.   



Still no zoomies for Polly, so she's making up for it by playing with her stuffies and eating her chews.  Here she's keeping hold of it:) 




Best place with this weather is in bed.  Well partly in bed in this case:)


Hope you have all had a good week and you are looking forward to the weekend.  You all take care and keep dry, warm and safe.  Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

Stormy Sunday

By heck we are in for some very stormy weather.  The winds are already gusting.  Think there will be a few things flying around the village.



Here's Polly taking no notice of the winds outside.




Hope you all have a fab weekend and any bad weather misses you and you all remain safe.

Remember to hug your hound/s.

Had a bad back so not done much crafting.  Here are cards I made recently.


The card below was a Get Well card from Polly and I to my friends dog who had an operation on a slipped disc.  



Hope you all have a fab day.
