The winner of my giveaway is .......

A lovely blogger and crafter who goes by the name of Rachael Neale . You can find her work here at Made with Love she truly has an eye for a good design and I love her work as there is always something different from other sites, any way Rachael has won my little ballerina and I hope she likes it :)

Also today was a bitter sweet day as our cross border bearded collie had to visit the vet and neither DH or myself thought she would be coming home esp as she is 18 yrs old.
She is suffering from dimentia, peeing in the house and also collapsing alot as there is something wrong with her back legs.
So this morning before work I had tears as I said goodbye to her and emailed DH from work for updates, he had to take in at 10am and he emailed me at 11 to say she was home.
She has a urinary infection but is in no pain and for such an old dog is in good health, her back legs are weak because of old age, I can relate to that.
She is now on 2 lots of tablets one for the infection and one for her legs.


I really hope they work as it is so sad to see her keep collapsing as once down she can't get back up without our help and as much as I try not to after picking her up for the umpteenth time in so many minutes I start to feel annoyed....must try to be more patient :(

Our cat Merlin is nearly 19 and he has lots of problems too. It is very, very sad. I really do understand how you feel, all the best Mat

I ma so sorry to hear about the dog, went through that with a few cats and they didn't come back home. @ in the past 6 months and I have one that is 17. It is so hard I know and patience gets thin. Maybe the meds will help, be positive!

That's sad - but 18 is a fabulous age. We lost ours at 10, and I still miss her so much. And that was 7 years ago! So I know how you're feeling. x

thanks for your lovely comment - the fabrics are gorgeous. I'm rediscovering some absolutely wonderful fabrics in trying to destash... I love doing commissions, and if I've got the fabric, that's no problem. I was actually thinking of posting pics on my blog of some fabrics to say people are free to choose, so you saying that has encouraged me to try and get organised and do that. I'm posting a pic soon of another make from my stash... I'll let you know when pics are up. If you like the letter fabric, you'll love it. xx
