It could only happen to me.....






Today I found out from the postman where the stray pup had come from so up we walked but no one was home. Later on I piled pup and kids into the car to complete my Good Samaritan Deed for the day and what do I do?????? I hit their other dog...... You couldn't make it up. The dog is fine, I think I just got his paw but he'll never chase my car again, thats for sure!!!! I still feel a bit sick.


Anyways, before my journey of doom I finished a l.o. I started last night with photos I took at the beach yesterday. Only one disaster later and I finished it this morning. It is loosely based on a sketch from Pencil Lines which I found on Kates blog. The fibres feel exactly like the mossy stuff that grows on the rocks in the 2nd pic. When I was glueing the paper strip with the fibres to the l.o. didn't the top come off the bottle and poured all over it. I don't know how it didn't ruin the whole thing (as I was working on top of the l.o. as usual....) but I managed to salvage it.


Here are some pics hopefully of the finished l.o. and pup in very good hands!!! Off to get a chinese now as I'm still too traumatised to cook!!!!!
