The Return of the Bulldog

Okay, sulking mostly done here and life needs to move on, even if I do feel bereft without my phone. On the bright side it is fixable (yay), and soon I will be able to once again spend my time waiting for the girls on the school run, and at dance class, utilising my time the way I usually do - replying to comments and other emails.

But phones are not the be all and end all. Life does indeed move on and I got the time to return to my girlie freezer paper piecing today. I reinstated the beloved bulldog, and the poor sad stand-in has been removed to return in another project some other day. I managed to get the bulldog back into the piecing with the help of greater minds giving me advice. I tend to just get annoyed when something goes wrong and lose the ability to approach things logically then. So a big thank you to everyone who convinced me that the bulldog must return and that it would not be the right royal pain in the behind I was envisioning.


As you can see I got the other side of the garden finished too. I love those wee little ducklings and the 'ugly duckling'!


Now, just the sky to do and then I can think about quilting.

  30. Actually the bulldog looks far better in his new position I think (so it is an ill wind 'n' all that.) Love the block, and the story it is telling. :-)
