This is Bonnie.  She is 2 1/2 years old and she has come to live with us.  A couple of months ago our beloved dog, Ginger, died and it has been rather quiet without him.  We were looking for a puppy and were offered Bonnie by her breeder.  She is a bit nervous around new people but she's settling in and it's lovely to have her even when she leaves muddy footprints all over the place.

Weaving/Plaiting Paper

A plaited paper basket woven from strips of A4 envelopes.  The instructions are from another library book, "Time to Weave" by Jane Patrick.

Blanket in the making

Spinning and knitting is happening, admittedly slowly, but I'm spinning and knitting the wool from the last post up into a blanket.  The pattern is modular squares so I can knit one square at a time when I feel like it. The colour is growing on me, though I don't think I'll ever be enthusiastic about it.
