It rained…

It rained…

We have had rain at last. So all the desert dust that was hanging around in the atmosphere is now streaked down our windows and splattered all over my car – but at least we can breathe safely again!

The dogs are not enjoying the wind and rain though. Macy was sulking at the top of the stairs this morning. Although I think maybe she was just guarding the upstairs from the Little Dog and Oscar the Pointer who is staying with us for a week. They have been running round like maniacs, and Macy doesn’t always approve.

This photo also shows off our nasty army issue carpet. It comes in 4 colours. Depending on the quarter you are allocated you either get beige, blue, green or terracotta. I dream of getting the beige one day… Well actually I dream of a life entirely devoid of carpets – but that’s a long way off, the army are obsessed with it – So for now I just dream of having a colour that vaguely matches the mud the dogs bring in from the garden.

This weekend I need to crack on with some sewing. Do you remember the springtime colours? Those squares of fabric are taking shape as my first snowball quilt. I need to get it finished soon because the next project is my parents quilt and I have just 4 weeks to complete it before I go back to the UK for Easter. I am also doing a craft swap with my neighbour Laura, she’s taken a shine to the cushions I made last weekend… why are there always more projects than time?

And I forgot to add that yes, that is mud on her nose! What me? Digging in the garden? But how did you find out! :-O
