You've seen her before and .........

you'll probably see her again!     We have this little guest staying with us for a couple of days and I am getting plenty of exercise!    This is her favourite spot for keeping an eye on passers by.
She is very sweet and very good too, inspite of getting me out of bed for a trip round the garden at 2am this morning.
You may remember that her name is Poppy.   We had to leave her at home for an hour this afternoon while I went to the chiropractor - she was so pleased to see us when we returned and must have wondered if we had abandoned her too.

Blogger is still a bit strange and most of the time won't allow me to start typing on the left hand side of the page even though I keep trying to re-align the text, so my spacing is a bit random and haphazard.

The house is almost back to normal after last week's upheaval for the new boiler.   The larger of the two front bedrooms is full to the brim with it's own stuff plus everything from the boxroom which is now empty and waiting for new floor covering which will go down next Monday.    However, my workroom is still not in a state conducive to creativity.  I have various ideas going round in my head - another rag rug; another piece made on the embellisher or perhaps something inspired by medieval tile patterns.   Maybe all three will get made eventually but which will I start first?  By the time I have restored order and found some working space perhaps I will know the answer.

Hello, Poppy! Where did your mummy and daddy get to, eh?

Out in the garden at 2:00 a.m.! Well, that must have been fun!

Don't let her run you ragged there, Heather.

She does look a good girl though, and you must enjoy having her company.

Your projects sound like great fun. I think I'll drag out some yarn and my crochet hook and see if I can't make something passably useful.

Best,

Kat

eek 2 am - that's not sociable Heather. I expect your ideas will consolidate as the house gets back to order. look forward to seeing what you will come up with.

I envy you your ideas. My hand is rather shaky these days and my ideas have dried up Heather. So much so that I have got rid of all my embroidery stuff because I find it too frustrating. I look forward to seeing your next project though.

That's such a shame Pat, but I think I would do the same in your situation. You still write a fascinating blog - one of the best.

What a gorgeous visitor, but the 2.00am stint's a bit tough. I thought Charlie was bad dragging me out at 5.30am.

Wow a 2.am walk in the garden is a bit beyond the call of duty, but no doubt she's worth it. Lovely pics of her.

What adorable photos! Sounds like you're having fun with her ;-)
I'd love to join you both for a walk (but preferably 2PM)
