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.
Fabidoo! Looks like he really belongs on the path - woe betide any postie trying to get past him!ReplyDelete
Looks fab Mrs, he needed to be there, guarding the door, hope he doesn't bite me next time I come for a visit! ; )ReplyDelete

I love the look on the ugly duckings face. It's like he's just bumped into the bulldog and is doing like ducking poops at the prospect!ReplyDelete
He does look perfect there....love the ducks too!ReplyDelete
I can not believe it: you still have dwarfs? amazing!ReplyDelete
glad your phone can be fixed!
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. :-)ReplyDelete
Delicious glass of lemonade!! Nice fix, Susan. :-)ReplyDelete
