I'm back from my Scottish sojourn, I bid farewell to my family (and the sheep!) and headed back down to London a few days ago. Even though it's not that far away and it's not as if I'm journeying to another continent, the trek back always feels rather epic. It starts with a two hour car journey, followed by an hour and a quarter plane trip, then a short bus ride to the nearest train station followed by a 30 minute train journey and another bus! So after my trip I really have gone by plane, train and automobile!
I haven't really been up to much since I've been back apart from a little sewing project. We decided that we wanted to start weaning Holly and Ivy off from the sofa and armchair (we don't have a huge amount of furniture in our sitting room and it was always a bit awkward offering a guest a seat when both of the cats are already on them!) So I decided to make Holly and Ivy a comfier bed to soften the blow. I used some old french ticking I had bought ages ago from Ardingly and found this really simple tutorial on-line. In a few hours they had a new bed!
Holly definitely seems to have claimed it as "hers" just now. I hadn't actually finished stuffing it in the photo above before she spotted the lounging potential! Ivy has given it a go too although she prefers to lie on me on the sofa as her "compromise"! I'm really pleased with how it turned out especially as some of the fancier dog/cat beds seem to cost a ridiculous amount of money.
So I feel delightfully thrifty and Holly feels very cosy - it's a win/win situation!
