Dogs High Visability Jackets

Missie and Ruby were both very reluctant little Models but once they are finished they will wear them proudly when away.

As we do a lot of caravanning and camping away from power & lights it is sometimes very hard to see our 2 little Dogs in a torchlight. Not that they wonder off too far.

Reflective strips & bone shapes and Fluro Orange Jacket was my solution to helping me find them in the dark.

Bring on the next camping weekend so we can try them out.
Shhhh I haven't told one sister in law yet but there is one in the making for her Sasha.
Lets hope they do the job that they are intended for.

Quilt No 2 is Started

Pinwheel Blocks are made out of 4inch squares.

We sewed a 1/4" in from our pencil lines.

Then cut along the pencil lines.

Hey presto I now have 64 x 3 1/2' squares.
Off to my second class and hopefully more to report soon.

Cold & wet now for the knitting.

With the cold and wet weather here it is time to dig out last years knitting that I started. Hopefully it will be easy to pick up from where I left off.
