I have done some more of the JA Christmas 2009 SAL - Christmas Wishes is now done and Christmas Tidings just needs the edging doing.
I have started stitching/beading two gifts for a colleague at school who is retiring this summer. They are two wine labels and I'm going to get a good bottle of red and white to give with them.
I haven't done any other stitching but have cut out another 12 skirts for school and quite a few neckerchiefs. I'm hoping to pin them tonight and machine them tomorrow.
DD is coming to school with me tomorrow for the week as she is doing her first week's work experience in our PE Department. She is really looking forward to it.
However we have chosen a one year old female collie cross. She is short haired, chocolate and white and at the moment is called Saffy. She has been with a family already but they couldn't keep her - nothing wrong with her just their lifestyle. At the moment she is very very nervous and shy but I guess suddenly being brought from your home and left in a kennels makes anyone feel lost.
We spent a good 20 minutes with her and by the time we left her tail had started to curl upwards instead of being down between her legs and it actually wagged a little. We are going back to see her next weekend and will hopefully have her by the end of the month. I took this photo with my phone - she looks quite happy with DS and DD.
Thanks for reading my blog - have fun.
