How much is that doggy in the window

I tried to make a dog that looked like my nephew's puppy not sure I quite managed it but the young lady who I made it for was really pleased with it.

The cushion behind him was made by Dad, he had a special magnifier and he was able to sew the cushion fronts and my sister completed the cushion. I'm so pleased I have this cushion now that Dad has passed away. My daughter has an Eeyore but it's been well loved so I mended it and washed it, once its dried it will be going home with her.

Finally finished my Beach Hut draught excluder, I was in doubt whether it needed one more but my daughter saw and took it home to check before I could photo it. So she send me a picture and it clearly doesn't need another hut. I used a free pattern on Ravelry from Jen Mitchell. I simply made each one and then joined together, there is a weighted bag in each of them with stones.

I even had my sewing machine out not that I'm that good, I made a new bag for my wheelchair cushion but if you have a Barney Bodger for DIY, I'm the Barney Bodger of Sewing. It does the job, I also took up some trousers as well but the the sewing machine as been put away for Easter since we having a family meal on Easter Sunday.
