...get my sewing done this morning x..

I managed to sew some sweetie blocks ..

for this months Brit Bee swap queen .. she wants Christmassy blocks x AND my stash Bee blocks ..

I was preoccupied and forgot to take a picture BEFORE I parcelled them up! They are off centre miniature blocks xx He-He x

I also sewed down the binding on a cot quilt..

NOW....... the reason I was pre-occupied.... is that I had to work out my strategy to get GUS into the bath!! His relationship with water begins and ends with the need to drink it!!!!

SO .. the plan was ...

When we get home from the afternoon walk

1. Do-not take off his lead

2. RUN (!) up stairs .. dragging him with me

3. Dash into the bathroom and throw him in the bath

4. Wash as quick as possible

5. let him get out

6. get towels on him BEFORE he covers the bath room with shaken water

WELL... it mostly worked xx I had to fight off an excited Sam who wanted to get IN the bath while stopping Gus .. who wanted to get OUT!!! and .. the bathroom got pretty wet!! He NOW smells lovely .. although NOT speaking or making eye contact with me xx lol x...

AH! the joys of pet ownership ... I'm exhausted now!!!

That's a good plan. Dogs and baths aren't always the easiest combo!

LOL Great plan to wash Gus, sad Sam wanted to join in.
Hmmm ! Gus doesn't look pleased.

Oh poor Gus! He looks really put out and then you took a photo as well!!! The blocks are great as the baby quilt..well done.

The patchwork looks great, and therapeutic, the pouch waging doesn't sound as relaxing!

Even washing the dog is entertaining. Thanks for the laugh.
