Ghillie Mcdog would like to thank you all for your kind words about his handsome self.... and for those that have asked he is a fully fledged Scottish Deerhound - he is in fact the only true Scot living at Sea House!
Deerhounds are a massive breed of dog that truly are wonderful to have around - now - Stephen and i are Whippet addicts as is evident by the number that we own, but i have always loved the larger hound breeds too and when the news that a litter of Deer's were only just up the road we had to have a look and of course we gave in to temptation :)
now we own both breeds the differences are clear, they both will take what exercise is on offer but are generally a lazy lot - ours are happy as long as they have a mad sprint at least once a day, so anyone who has been put off thinking that these running dog breeds need lots of exercise can rest assured that they do not.
despite his size Mcdog is soooo gentle, he is loyal, our most obedient hound and would never knowingly hurt anything or anybody - the only time he causes me pain is when he suddenly decides to lean his body weight against me thus pressing me against a wall or worktop or when he steals from the worktop which he can rest his chin on!
would we have another Deerhound?
if one needed a home we would take it in in a blink of an eye, but we could not afford to purchase another - they are expensive.
whilst on the subject of the hounds.... Sue rightly pointed out that i had not officially named the new chaps....
so, today i give you
he is absolutely lovely and has become well and truly a member of the team :)
with the extra bit of weight that he has put on since he arrived he has also gained so much speed!
he is the fastest out of them all followed by the bean and miss moo - it is magical to see the ease at which he sprints x
i shall introduce you to Badger's best buddy next time
but that is enough doggy talk
on to crafty things......
a little sewing of items that will be available to buy direct, via Folksy or Not on the High Street...
they will also be added to my wholesale list...
Toadstool needle case.....
made using a piece of Vintage blanket, lined with green felt and inside two useful white felt pages for all those needles and pins.....
and staying on the sewing theme....
Hare Pin Cushion
again made from my most beloved Vintage wool blankets, Vintage green floral fabric, Vintage lace and a linen Hare....
they have both been such a joy to create and i have plans for so much more
sadly the alloted sewing time is becoming less and less as the days lengthen
there is so much to do outside and in,
but more on that soon
over at Sea House
