PIXIE COTTAGE,

Morning guys hope you are all well,and enjoying this heat wave we are having at the moment,poor Alice is off to the vets,this morning,as her stomache,is red and itchy due to the heat.  So it will be steroids,for her once again this happens,every summer but they wont give her any unless I take her down,even though they will say exactly the same as they say every year,she will have this for life,as its a skin condition westies get.  Oh well she is so worth the money,then I have to come back and then go out again to get results of my bone scan,so if I do not get round to seeing you all,that is why.
Right  over at pixie cottage this week, we have a brilliant sketch,plus the other option,is paper piecing,and I have used,hearts,Hannah,for my DT card this week,hope you like,it. The dress is paper pieced. The  sketch is by the lovely Pam. So if you have the time,we would love to see you join in with us this week,by following both the sketch,and paper piecing or just use the sketch,or try the paper piecing once again the choice is yours.

I love that chest and you've made a good start on that cabinet. But the pin cushion is the thing that caught my eye. I 've never seen pins like that. They are miniature art pieces on a sharp stick!! Happy WOYWW.
