A Long Time Coming Post

Hello Readers' of Mum's Blog

This is Poppy here, writing on her behalf. I have despaired of her blogging again, even though she has been making notes on what to blog about, I am going to try and make sense of them.

First of all let me introduce myself,  my name is Poppy, I am a three year old Jack Russell/Mini Foxie Cross.

Here is a recent phot of me, aren't I adorable?

Since March, (last time) Mum blogged, many life changes have occurred.

Her NETS have progressed in her liver and now there is one in her third rib, that explains the pain, that she was experiencing,  but kept getting the brush off, anyhow enough of that.

So the doctors, sent her off to see if she was eligible for some new treatment,  called PRRT, again this is only availe at one centre in Queensland, so she has to leave me every eight weeks for a a week or so. Funny thing is she goes for a short distance in thing with round black things, then goes up in this BIG tin bird, it eats her up, but lets her out at the other end, and BRINGS her back to me, oh and him ....

HE is Harry Creek the Black Cat, HE thinks HE is the love of her life, but hey, .......

Anyway, Mum was on sick leave for a long time, but now back at work part time. She has also recommenced quilting.  Givez me more comfy places to sit, but please don't tell her!

Mum finally completed this Golliwog Quilt she started for my two legged sister, many, many years ago.  This quilt was all hand appliqu├ęd,  fused down, and blanket stitched around.  She cut out a lot, and I mean a lot of rectangles,  to go around the centre Golliwogs. Here are some photos. 

Now,  I overhead Mum talking about this how this quilt came about.  Katie,  the two legged child has always LOVED Golliwogs,  even though she is a grown up now! Well,  when she was an almost grown up, at one of the craft shows, she found a patter for a Golliwog Quilt and asked my  Mum to make it for her,  Mum, being Mum said, sure. Bought said pattern,  but when she got it home,  the trouble began.  Yep, TROUBLE, the pattern was in centremetres, grrrrrrr, not inches. Mum had to remake the pattern.  The photos above are the result.

Hang on, I'd better sign off, I hear Mum coming, and she will go spare if she knows I have been on her tablet.

I will try and blog on her behalf, until she decides to blog again. I have found lots of photos of blocks and things she has been working on. So will share.

Thank you for reading this post from Poppy.
