Here are the 2 sisters together again. Lotje stayed with us for 2 weeks because her new owners went on vacation. They both had a wonderful time together.They played in a fenced part of our garden, unfortunately I had some potplants and some decorations still standing there.....You can guess what happened with it!
Well, that's my fault, I should have known and removed them.
One thing that happened was a bit scary though. I had an old enamel ware milkcan there and suddenly I heard lots of noise so I looked outside. There I saw Abbey stuck with her head in it, I tried to get her out of it but I couldn't. So I shouted for my husband to help me.She was in panic and her hart went so fast, mine too!
It took some time but after we used water and soap her head got out.

This is an apron I made for the fall apron swap I was in.
Hopefully my partner likes it.

And here are some of my birthday presents.

And these lovely things I received from a swap over at crochetaholics swap from my partner Joann.

My husband is at work and it is a very rainy day so I think I will do some crafting this afternoon.
Have a lovely sunday.

O,o,o... wat maak je toch ook mee met een stel van die jonge honden. Ik snap dat je even in paniek was. Maar het zijn wel scheetjes om te zien hoor. Zijn het drentse patrijzen? Leuke cadeautjes voor je verjaardag, vooral de foto's van de kinderen. En ik weet wel zeker dat je swappartner het schort mooi vind!

Monique, your swap partner doesn’t just like the apron, she loves it! I can’t wait to try the recipe you sent. I’m involved with a diet contest with my brothers and sisters right now but as soon this round of torture is over apple pie here I come. After viewing your blog I can see why Lucy put us together. I love what you have done in your home and yard. They are beautiful. Thanks for the apron. Kathie

Hi Monique,
Wat een prachtige foto van het schattige duo Lotje en Abbey. Tjeetje wat moet je geschrokken zijn met die kan over Abbey's koppie...zo zie je maar, met kinderen kun je de gekste dingen soms beleven maar met de huisdieren ook !!
Nog van harte gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag hoor !
Groetjes, Janneke

Oh monique, die kleine hondjes! Dit lijkt wel een scene uit een film! Je kunt het zelf niet bedenken, gelukkig heb je de emmer los gekregen...
Je schort ziet er leuk uit hoor! En (ik heb je volgende post ook al gelezen natuurlijk) De schorten die je teruggekregen hebt is ook geweldig! En nu naar de keuken om iets lekkers te creeren!
