Easter was over in a blink. But having hubby home managed to get a few more jobs done.
One unexpected job was a water leak in our en suite which is above the kitchen. So you have
guessed it. We had a bucket in the kitchen with water dripping down. Tried to find a plumber
but did not have any luck. Finally hubby found the problem and fingers crossed water has stopped.
The water has left brown marks from one side of the room to the other. So today even though
it was a beautiful sunny day I stayed home and started to repair and paint  the ceiling. I had
 the front door open all day with the sun shining in. The dogs loved it just going in and out
as they pleased. But you know me when I had finished the ceiling it made everything else look
drab so I did the walls and started on the skirting /woodwork as well. (Still to finish).

Today I thought I would show you some of my makes.

It started with Archie and Blossom small teddies. Then I have gone on to dogs with coats
all named after my dogs. Next doggie key rings and tiny doggie brooches..

Then I knitted some bunting and added material pictures to each one.
Also made more knitted chains.

In this picture you can see lots of Archie and Blossom teddies and my monsters.

I made some hanging birds large and small. And of course lots of hearts and pom pom
key rings.

                              And of course some small rag wreaths.

I have stopped making any more as they are taking over the house.
I think I need to find a  Craft Fair and see if  any of them will sell .

  I am now getting creative with fancy dress costumes for Archie and Blossom for
 fun dog shows. And making never ending jumpers as they do not last long before
 they get tatty.

Well another day of painting tomorrow. Then at least the kitchen is back to normal.

I do not know where the time is going.I can not believe we are in April already.
I am finding less time to do all the things I like doing. I do not know if it is because I am more busy
or not organising my time well........

I must admit if the weather is good I tend to make the most of it and find lots of things to do outside.
I am always making knitting, crafting everyday. Head is full of ideas. Trying to have a Spring clean
but that is going so slow. Garden needs a good sort out but that is start stop.
And now Dog Shows are beginning so making fancy dress outfits for Archie and Blossom.
The dog shows will take up my weekends soon. (But I love them).
Easter I went to two Fun Dog Shows came first for Archie and Blossoms fancy dress and that weekend came home with 10 rosettes!

And I have just started doing instagram mainly of our dogs and that is so time consuming
as most of you will know but I am hooked. (It is under Primrosesatticblog) If you love dog
pics take a look.

But to give you a taste of my doggie pics here are a few cute ones of Archie and Blossom.
Archie is now 16 months and weighs 3 lbs. Blossom is 11 months and weighs 6 lbs.

All outfits (including dolls) were made by me. Blossom loves her bows and hairbands.

They are my tiny stars.

Hope you have enjoyed these cute pics.
