Sad News

Stiggy my dog, whom I named my blog after, passed away today
He was taken ill on Thursday and seemed to be doing well Then today he took a turn for the worse and we had to make the hard decision to let him go He was a wonderful dog, so good natured that even in pain he never grumbled
My blog title will remind me of the 9.5 years of fun and happiness we had  after someone left him tied to gate Everyone who met him thought he as a girl and only about 2 years old So he became known round the village as the only gay dog in the village after the comedy show Little Britain The heartache now is nothing to all the joy we had with him
God Bless you Stiggy and RIP

Its Been Too Long....

Wow how has so much time flown by since I last blogged No excuses just very busy at work and at home and we were preparing for the Goodwood Revival Meeting Which was a fantastic long weekend
Well I am back with a project and also to  thank all who have stayed with me x  This project was made for a friend to give as wedding gift I made the box by hand To finish the box I used some silk ribbon (the ties from dresses!)  The image on the candle is from Charmed Cards & Crafts and is coloured using my promarkers onto tissue paper I then used greaseproof paper to hold the image in place and heated it my heat gun until the tissue paper dissappered into the candle  This picture shows the front of the candle and the front of the gift tag The gift tag uses the pre- coloured image that came with the set This is the rear of candle again the image on the candle was coloured using my promarkers and the image on the gift tag was the precoloured image I have had this digital image of George & Dottie for ages now…
