challenge 2011 week four!

Yay I'm on time!

This week I seen my second Son leave home to set up home with his Girlfriend.   Its a bittersweet time as most mothers know.  The joy at one less teenager in the house,  One less set of washing each day,  extra time for me.  on the other hand, One less person living here, giving me a hug,  giving me a smile.  Still life goes on and the world turns.

We have a little Doggie called Poppy.   When our Beautiful Jessie-Dog passed away Poppy pined for her and became very attached to our Daughter. Now when ever Princess goes out then Poppy sits on the back of the sofa and windowsill waiting for her to come home!  And you know what?  That dawg can tell the time!  At three O'clock everyday faithfully,  she takes up her station on her cushion waiting for Daddy to return with the Princess! When they return,  What a reunion!  you would think they hadn't seen each other for weeks instead of hours!  I love the way dogs are so faithful to their owners.

So crafting time.......

It was my Nieces birthday and she is a avid swimmer so i decided to make her a swim bag.  I didn't have a lot of time so made it as simple as possible.  I bought a new towel and removed the trimming.  Added some teddy bear fabric and a handle and finished!  The beauty of this bag is that it can be used as a extra towel to dry herself and then bunged in the washing machine when she gets home from swimming with no messing about!   Quick and easy to make and a really practical present.

Hi Lovelies! You know, I was reminded this week how life is so precious.  We get one shot at it and we aren't like cats and have nine...
