Let me introduce you to our dearest little friend, Lucy, a Papillon of 8 weeks old. She is still very fragile and sensitive to cold, so as soon as I receive her little coat, I will take her a bit further than the garden. Unfortunately, everything is still covered with snow at the moment, but perhaps on the shore the snow will have melted, so she can delight in interesting smells. I think she weighs no more than 600 grams. We move in slow motion inside the house for it’d be easy to step on her by accident. At night, she sleeps on my pillow and since then, I have the most vivid dreams. She will get stronger, of course, and next year we will welcome into our little circle a Border Collie puppy. Lucy is very clever, she learns fast. This is only the third day and she already knows six words, “sit”, “fetch”,”look”,”come here”, “poopoo”, and “stop”.

And my favourite:


I won’t sell those, I will wear them or give them as presents. But when I come back from France, I’ll make more.

I also started a new diorama and this is a work in progress, there’ll be many other layers:


I think if you want to enjoy a meal at this table, you’d better bring a hot water bottle.

Acid Dyes

Traduction Française ici
I think I’m getting better at it. I spent most yesterday dyeing wool for my felting. I used Jacquard acid dyes and previously when I tried, I always ended up with some bits not having taken the dye at all. This time, I tapped the wool with my fingers to help the dye spread. I’m quite pleased with the results.
