I should have trusted my instincts today when they told me "no sewing today".
I embarked on designing a new dog..........well that was a mistake, first it looked like a lamb, then it turned into a deformed goat! I sat there for a minute then let out an AARGH. Then I did what all Brits do when they are under stress..........I made a cup of tea!
Happy Monday.

Charlie is the most well behaved little puppy. He even comes with his own little chew toy embroidered with his name.
Charlie will be up for adoption in my little Etsy shop.

Just Wondering

Have any of you ever wondered how people come up with blog names? Mine is pretty simple, it's my middle name Lizzie (Elizabeth actually) and my daughters middle name Jane, hence Lizziejane. There are some really lovely and weird blog names that I thought it would be fun to find out how they came about.

While you are all pondering I'll leave you with this photo of two little frogs that were snuggled into one of my flowers last summer, they looked so comfortable.

Have a great weekend everybody.

After the weather that we have been having the last few days I wondered if I should have knitted a sweater instead of putting this poor little elephant in a bikini!

Now I know what you are all thinking, is it a regular bikini bottom or is it a thong? You'll have to check Etsy in a little while to find out!

A wonderful surprise arrived for me today from my darling daughter.
I just had to share my beautiful flowers with everyone. We often send each other little out of the blue gifts for no reason, or just because it's Tuesday.
Sometimes it's just a card or even just a granola bar!
It's such a fun thing to do, and for us it's more fun than receiving a birthday gift.
Thank you my angel, I just love them.

Quilt for a cause

I made this quilt a while back (alas it was not my pattern). I donated it to It's Meow or Never animal sanctuary to be raffled off to help raise funds.
It was such a fun project to do. The lady holding the quilt was the winner.

Have a lovely crafty day everybody.

Mary Margaret McGregor

Mary Margaret McGregor is my first attempt at a kind of art doll.
I think her smile makes her look a little sassy.

Almost Spring

I just love this time of year, every day there is something new in the garden.
My lovely flowering plum tree is just about to bloom, and I even caught this little bird taking a bath in my garden pond. It made me shiver just watching him splashing in the cold water.

Happy almost Spring everybody.

This is Daisy, and she loves wearing polka dots. Everyone tells her that they make her look slim!

I've been a busy bee this weekend sewing up a storm. This is my newest creation, I call them Quackers.
Hope they make you smile.

Just plain cute!

I found these little guys while out shopping today and I just knew that they were going to come home with me.

Great Weekend!

I had a super weekend, thanks in part to the lovely Kajsa from Syko.

Kajsa put one of my little animals in the Etsy showcase - Nellie the elephant to be exact. Nellie was sold and will be packing her "trunk" for her new home in Spain. Somehow I don't think she will be needing her fleece jacket or her orange scarf anymore.

Hope everyone's weekend was great.

Tilly and Jenny

Tilly and Jenny are sisters that live in the country.
Jenny loves to grow flowers and Tilly sells them at the market.

Our Mitzi

Our little angel Mitzi helping to wrap packages... Although I think I'd be better off without her help.

What's to be said about Timothy, he's flamboyant and full of fun.
He lives across the street and came for coffee today.

Teeny and Weeny

Teeny and Weeny are all snuggled in bed after a hard day of play.
Their tummies are full and the've had their bath, now they're off to dreamland in their new flannel jammies.

We have a little mouse friend visiting us from Portugal, his name is Fernando.
Fernando is a bit of a flirt and loves to dress up in his finery.

As much as I love living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, at this time of year it can be very dreary.

So I created my own little ray of sunshine in Lulu the elephant. The weather even co-operated and was unusually beautiful.

Hope she brings some sunshine into your day.
