Let's waste time....

I have been endeavouring to embroider this all day, or I should say, I have been faffing all day.
The reason for my distraction ....this..... my heart bursts every time I look at him...
Daisy....well, she is keeping well out of the way. She made herself comfortable for a while in my scrap fabric basket. She will come round eventually. Daisy loves fuss and she's been getting a lot of it. x
There is a little piece of paper stuck to her mouth in this photo..it looks like she has one lonely tooth peering from her mouth!
Thank you so much for lovely comments about Button Nose and Daisy...every single one, so very much appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by. x

They are both so cute, Viv - no wonder you're distracted!

Scented Sweetpeas said...

oohh he is so so cute! Your older dog will come round, ours turned all grown up on us when we got Ted and now he is as much of a puppy as Ted and they love each other to bits. Gorgeous work by the way.

Both doggies are precious! Perhaps they will make an appearance in the embroidery...

lilylovekin said...

Both your babies are adorable. We got a puppy and it took a while for the older stateswoman to come around but eventually she did, and the two of them can not be separated. It takes time.

Im surprised you got anything done at all, I am besotted and he's not even mine. Jane xx

Mrs Yappy Dog said...

yes a distraction indeed, Daisy is very cute too, I would have trouble knowing which one to stroke and cuddle first!

What a lovely distraction!

Becca said...

Hi Viv, beautiful embroidery again. I just love your new little baby too, and I'm sure Daisy will grow to love him soon. My hubby wanted me to tell you he went to school 2 miles from Alton Towers, is that near you? :-) Becca

Button Nose and Daisy-OF COURSE you're distracted. They need YOU to take them for a walkie.

I love it that you wrote about wasting time. My new post is basically about the GUILT I feel when I "waste time."

Sending love and spring flowers,

Oh Viv he is GORGEOUS! Have been away for a couple of days so haven't been online for a little while. And the stitching is lovely too. I'm sure Daisy and he will be bosom pals before you know it. x

Hi Viv
It will all sort itself out, my Mum acquired an old jack russell last week and he has to learn to fit in with 3 female terriers, he's doing quite well so far. I haven't blogged Wally yet but he is next on the list.
Well done for taking the plunge.

I've just been oooh-ing and aaah-ing at your oh so cute puppy! I would love a companion for my dog Bella,but I don't think I could manage two dogs at the moment.

Little Billy Button Nose is totally edible... Not literally of course!!

I will just have to make do with my vintage straw filled pooches until the day we can have our own Billy BN..

His big sister will soon learn to love him and boss him about!

The embroidery looks great..
Daisy will come round eventually -like everything in life, it just takes time....

Jackie said...

Oh I'm in love with Billy Button. And Daisy too. I don't know how you manage to get any work done at all.

A Time to Dance said...

I think he would distract me too....

fibrefrolics said...

If I had those two around, I would never get anything done.They both have such sweet lovable expressions. How could you possibly ignore them. We have a dear old Airedale who quite rightly demands we pay a lot of attention to her so I know what its like! Love your new header too.

Michelle said...

oh he is totally and utterly adorable ! x

MrsP said...

Oh what a gorgeous distraction- I would get nothing done - ever!!

love your studio AND the puppy

Bobo Bun said...

Just catching up with all your news Viv and what news. It's never easy moving on, but you sure did pick an adorable little boy. I bet you could forgive him any rascally behaviour.
Hopefully Daisy will get used to him soon.

Fowey is gorgeous. Glad the fair went well.

LOVE STITCHING RED said...

Your newest addition is adorable and I love your photos of the Homespun Fair and the cakes and vintage goodies. So glad you discovered Fowey. As well as St. Ives it's on my top 5 list of places ever! I love Fowey for the shops and Daphne Du Maurier's house across the river and Boddinick and the little ferry and the twinkling lights at night

Have a wonderful weekend :o)
