Oh my, I noticed I haven't been around for a long, long time..........
It was just a very hectic time with the 4 little puppies, Bonny, Britt, Bandit and Baxter. They all did great and the 2 little girls are at their new home since last weekend, both boys are still with us.Bandit will be going to his new house around half october and for Baxter we're still looking for a nice home.I haven't been doing much crafty things lately
A while ago I received a great swap from Vicki.She send me this great blue bag.......

With inside these cute photo's of Alpaca's, just love alpaca's.

And this great yarn in wnderful colours, she also send me a wonderful bag pattern and I'm knitting it at the moment.

This was what's insede the blue bag, a great pattern, some needles and a great book! Just LOVE it.

Then I also made these warm socks for the coming cold winter.
Well, this is it for now but I will be back more often now with more things I have made and some new photo's of our new home.

On saturday the 1th of August our dog Meghan gave birth to her puppies. It was a nice and easy birth , of which we where very glad because her mother had 2 difficult and heavy labours.
The first one was born at 06.15 but unfortunately he was dead. My husband and me tried to get him back but unfortunately that didn't succeed. The next puppy arrived soon and was doing great.Number 5 and also the last arrived around 08.00. So now we have 2 boys and 2 girls and so far they're doing great!
And they're soooooo cute! I can watch them all day.
Here are some photo's of them.

I have participated in a great swap called the cosy crochet swap. My swap partner was Felicity from
She has a wonderful blog that you really must see. she makes some gorgious crochet items and she makes great photo's of them.
I'm real glad that she was my swap partner and I will definately follow her on her blog.look at the wonderful things she send me.
She had wrapped them so great but somehow blogger is acting weird since a couple of days and it makes it hard for me to post here and somehow it won't let me post this photo that I made of the whole package.

First she send me these great vintage magazines.

Then these lovely potholder and coaster she crocheted.

And isn't this lovely. Sorry for this upside down photo, that's the work of this weird acting blogger again!

Look at that gorgious little flower she made!

I have found a wonderful place for it, but I allready have some other great places for it on my mind.

Here are the things I made her. This is so lovely cotton yarn and it comes in such lovely colours.

And another upside down photo. These are cute teapot coasters.

I also send her some vintage doilies but I forgot to take photo's from them.
I have some more photo's but I'm not sure if I'm able to post them so I will try again soon.
There is something I wanted to ask.When I open my blog it seems that it looks different to me.Normally my links, archive etc is on the left side but now I have to scroll all the way down to see them and also the looks of my blog has changed, it's now completely white with some green on top. Now is my question if you also see it this way or not. Please let me know. Thanks.

At the moment I'm crocheting these granny squares. It's a wonderfull thing to do when I'm watching tv, sitting in the garden or in the car.
I'm only using these 3 coloures.
I noticed on a couple of other blogs some more granny squares in lovely green and purple colours and I'm thinking of using those colours in another granny square blanket.

I'm also working on a lovely stitchery that I found on a lovely blog
It's really worth a visit.
There are also other projects that I'm working on but I still have to make photo's of those.
Hopefully I can find sometime to do that tomorrow.
