My stitchy, crocheting dog sitting weekend

First I thought I would show you all my little dog for the week. She's my son's little dog, she's called Poppy and is a Norfolk Terrier. We are looking after her this week as they have gone on holiday and me and Richard have decided we are doing a 'fair swap' when they get back, the dog for the Grand-children!! (hehe) as Poppy is so much better behaved and does everything you tell her. (Don't worry Christian, Chloe and Jessica Grandma's only joking!!!
Below Poppy's picture is what I've been up to, a bit of crocheting, the coloured one is going to be a baby's little blanket it's done in Larksfoot stitch where you pick up on the row below. The other is a good old granny square, not sure what it may become. I've well and truly got the crocheting bug. I found some fantastic tutorials by the crochet geek on You Tube, she explains really well and there is loads of patterns to choose from.
And finally a little bit more of the secret stitching............any more ideas???
Well I'm off now to kit up a new start, it's going to be a small Christmas ornament from last years American mag I got...it's never too early to make a start. Happy stitching  xx Bev


  1. I know what the stitchy piece is! You're gonna like it when it's finished.

  2. Hello Bev...I know what the stitching piece is, too! I have the project in my stash and hoping to start it sometime this years, when my stash pile gets a little shorter (although the memorial day sales of a couple online stitching stores, didn't help). I love the crochet items, I'll have to check out the You Tube videos you mentioned...for I own crochet hooks, just don't understand how to crochet.
    Take care

  3. Ha! people started Christmas ornaments back in January, and some have finished. Check out Kerrie's blog http://xstitchlibrarian.blogspot.co.uk/ (I hope she doesn't mind I'm sending you there). She has most amazing ornaments for her christmas tree. I am very jealous. I wanted to start and have a total of zero. Me and cross stitch don't go hand in hand. Made millions of flowers for a top three years ago, still not assembled. I prefer knitting. I think what you stitching will have 'needle' in it.

  4. Aww I know what the stitchy piece is :)
    Happy stitching x

  5. Lovely projects you have on the go and the doggie is really cute :)

  6. Now I know what you're up to, and I know you'll love hanging it in your stitching area!

  7. Ooohh exciting now some of you know!! My darling grand-daughter will pick a name out of her favourite little basket, who will it be???? xxxx

  8. Er... I must be dumb!! I still have no idea what this stitchy piece is!!! Nice work on the crochet! x
