Raining Cats & Dogs #Handmade #Folksy

Sunday today and supposed to be better weather.. hope so... Fingers crossed.
Didn`t know what to do today until I spotted a thread on Cat`s and Dog`s. I had a look, scrolled through and decided it was a great idea and would make a nice change. So for dog and cat lovers everywhere here are some wonderful crafts just for you.
Yesterday I was at work, we were busy but had a really good laugh. The day went quickly as always and was made more enjoyable by the fun we had. I managed a bit of crochet at lunchtime, some more finishing. I`m crocheting ringlet ties onto a collar. I`ve done two and have got two to go. After that there is one more collar to make ties for. I do keep looking at the older pile that need buttons and things but haven`t got there yet. I`ve also got a couple of half finished hats to get on with in that pile too. I will get to them one day. Before that I want to finish the christmas hats I`ve made. Two are done and three to go, with any luck I`ll get them done before tomorrow is over. I`m thinking of making some Christmas mittens in the same red sparkly yarn with white fluffy edgings.... hmm... maybe even a scarf? What do you think?
Anyone got any opinions on what you`d like to see made? Scarves or hats in particular colours or styles maybe? I`m always open to new ideas.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
Have FUN and ENJOY!!!

A dog is a real friend,
while a cat is just to lend.
They are so different but wonderful too
which is the best pet for you?
A cat will curl in your lap for a while
the very loud purring making you smile.
A dog will comfort with a head on your knee
understanding you need comfort you see.
Both are great in their own way
and both like to have fun and play.
Both have different breeds and sizes,
and certain ones can win prizes.
If you don`t have one but like them anyway,
well on here, we lots for you today.
Art that`s ready to grace your wall,
cards if you can give them away at all.
Delightful bags to put on your arm,
treat yourself, where`s the harm.
A cute cuddly dog or maybe a cat,
now who could bear to part with that.
A key fob, jewellery, a cushion too
all right here just for you.
A drawstring bag for the PE kit,
plenty of room for it to fit.
Lot`s of variety for you to view,
now off you go cos that`s your cue.
Make someone`s day, give them a treat,
the excitement of a sale can`t be beat!
