Team dachshund. πŸ‘

Named Kielo dress. My second, first was in a knit and this one's in linen. For this woven version I added a generous (1.5-2cm) seam allowance at the sides between underarm and ties for fit. Just need summer to come back now so I can wear it! #namedpatterns #kielodress

Next make (Fen dress) and new make (Kielo dress, just needs hemming). Maybe one too many blue linen dresses? 😬

Baby watermelon in our garden! πŸ˜ƒ

Friday night couch sausage. (I think we might be winning him over). 🐢

I've been laid up with a neck injury since early December so have been a bit quiet here. But, just wanted to mark this happy occasion. We adopted our second sausage today. This is Buddy - 21 months old and full of energy. We are already a bit besotted. #sausagedog #rehomed #sofarsogood

Sunday sewing. Deer + Doe Melilot view B - all done bar the buttonage and hem. Woo! #ddmelilot

Long weekends for the win. πŸ‘

Just found this teeny weeny egg in the hen house! In all our years of chicken keeping, we've only ever been delivered 'teenage' eggs from the newer layers, like the one in the middle here (normal egg from one of our older ladies on the left). Could this mini really be from a chook - or do we have an imposter?! #eggs #backyardchickens

A BBQ of sausages this morning. 😍 #adelaidedachshunds
