Vof vof vvrrruuufff !!!!! Heelllooo all my special friends! I love to welcome you to read my posts! I have many news today to tell you! I’m really happy to meet also new friends! If this is your first visit – may I introduce myself: I’m Nero, Belgian-German Shephard and one of my favorite things is to tell you about my adventures in the garden or even with fabrics!
Would you like to hear first about my yesterday, which was soooooo amazing day! You can’t believe this…….but yes….we had again Christmas!!! It’s true!!! We went to check our post box to the square of the village….and from far away we saw there is something blue…half out from the box…it was too big to fit in…and I knew it is The Packet!!! My disappeared Christmas present from my girlfriend Ronja from Finland!!!
It took two months to come here! But I don’t mind…I was extremely happy and I wanted to open it so much that I forgot to take any photos!
From the packet I found the most delicious doggie ‘bones’! Ronja sent for all of us her favorite ‘bones’ which are made of elk! Ronja is gorgeous Leonberg girl and my first blog friend!
…and then with the right paw…
Also Foxy enjoyed her ‘bone’ so much…she worked with it long long time!
…Hey! I think your ‘bone’ is better…I want that!
…Hey! She took my bone…now she has two ‘bones’…could I have mine back…please Hanna!
She is quite a girl…took my ‘bone’ just like that! What else can I do than laugh!
Thank you Ronja…this is so delicious…you made my day!
Now about my other news…in our last post we mentioned my ‘Fabric Puzzle’. I have begun a new project and I call it “Nero’s Fabric Adventure”! A while ago we were trying to make a dog with scraps…
I think I have fallen a little bit in love with this sweet doggie! I was thinking her so much…that finally I got an idea for a new patchwork. I shall gather there all the animals I know. Doesn’t that sound just a great idea!
Next we made an other doggie. I was trying so hard to help here…but it’s much more difficult I could ever imagined! How on earth SHE is doing it so well! Should I ask nicely to get some lessons from her…or perhaps it’s better I go around in the garden to find more friends for our patchwork! If you think you good use also some help with your sewing, be sure to klik above and visit Cathi with her assistant from Quilt Obsession!!!
He is my neighbour ‘Sacha’, the boxer. We are almost good friends. When we are in each’s garden we don’t speak much, but if the other one goes for a walk, we have to shout loudly! He’s a boy, you know, and I have to take care of my girls!
Here we love puzzles…not that we have made any lately, perhaps I keep them too busy…
I think this patchwork thing is so much like making a puzzle. Especially if you try to make something small like our animals. You know how it is with the puzzle: you take a piece, look the picture on the box and try to find where could be the place for your piece…only now we don’t have any picture to look…not even the pieces to try to match!Really interesting puzzle! By the way…I never forget one old movie where the woman made a puzzle upside down by the ‘lines of the wood’ (pieces were made from wood)!
Usually I don’t frame the puzzles, because I like to keep them and one day make them again. This is exeption – it has so wonderful atmosphere – pic nic by the river in the countrside! Perfect place to go for a trip with the Pic Nic blanket!
The next piece of my fabric puzzle is this sweet ‘kitten’! It’s sooooo sweeet! Have a better look!
I like so much cats – especially my Nelli! If there is any other cat in our garden, I go to say that she/he have to leave and quickly! But Nelli is my friend and I would like to play with her. It’s difficult because if I run to her, she gets panic and runs and hides from me!
I think she wants to come inside. Now when it’s winter and cold and we can’t have the door open all the time, we open it million times a day to Nelli!
She was hungry…it looks like she is thinking: boooring, every day this same food! I like her food…she has her bowls on the window self, because other wise me and Hanna would eat them in now time! I have tasted – delicious!
She has the best dining place with the great view to the garden and the road….and lots of birds flying around!
Ooooooh so much fabric things today….ok they are great….but don’t you just loooove to play with tennis ball! I have a bag full of them…so please come to play with me!
Oh my goooood….neeess, it’s already evening! Saturday night and I shall have a nap with my ball…am I getting old or what?! Others are enjoying movie on telly or adorable books! Look – it is Ronja’s book about her baby year!
I do hope you had a great time with me today and come back soon again….I’m already thinking what to write to you in my next post! I enjoy always so really really much reading your news and lovely comments! Thank you, thank you!!! Kisses and hugs!!!
Oh Nero, you do me laugh! You are so kind not to fight with Hanna when she took your bone although I’m sure she only wanted to look after it for you. There have been many fights over stolen bones our house.
Your Nelli isso much like my Plum Plum, I’m waiting for her to come over so that she can see the pictures.
Please can you tell Teje that the quilt is looking wonderful. I think it will be great when all the blocks are together.
I hope you have a great weekend, much love x
well Nero you have been a very busy dog today. Receiving parcels containing your favourite food, sharing with your sisters!!! and then showing us the beautiful patchworks. Teje is such a lucky person to have all of you to keep her entertained…. Its the middle of the night here and my beautiful girl Mollie is fast asleep on top of the stairs…… goodnight Nero, love to you all. Hugs xx
Max, Ellie and Kara send their love to Nero, Hanna and Foxy! They said they would love to play with Nelli too…but I think they may be too rough and may really just want to be friends with her for her food!
These three are not as cultured as Nero and really could not care less about any of the sewing I do…but do agree that tossing a tennis ball around is one of the best games ever…in fact that is what they are playing with now!
I think your quilted dogs and cat are amazing…I do agree that patchwork and quilting are very like puzzles…and in fact I love to do a good jigsaw puzzle too. The old fashioned look of that picnic by the river is beautiful. Have a wonderful week Teje.
I’m so glad Nero and his furry friends got ther xmas presents at last! Looks like he’s been having a good time! Your new quilt is such a great idea – so personal to you and the blocks you’ve done so far look really lovely. It will be a wonderful quilt! Have a great weekend. Helen x
Hello Nero , I am so happy to see your Nelli featured as I secretly admit that I am rather a “cat” person”. Our Billy is just the same as Nelli wanting to go in and out but today is so chilly that he is happy to be sleeping on his favourite green chair. He says hi to you all and also he says that Jane suggested the next part of your quilt could be a pig…another of her faves!
Have a sunny Sunday,
You have so much to show in your post they are always a joy to read. What a nice surprise gift for you from your friend, Nero and friends enjoyed it to I see.
Just been enjoying your fabric puzzles they look so good.
best wishes Julie.
Hello there Teje and Nero! Hope you’ve had a good weekend. Your little animal patches are absolutely brilliant. You are so clever! Nero, you’re a lucky dog to have so many doggy and catty companions to live with. We always love coming to visit you. Ros and Oscar
Woof Wood Nero and friends!
I have a friend a long long way away from me – he is called Rudi, he is much bigger than me but we are great friends. Sad thing is I don’t like to go in those tin boxes on the round black things that take people on the roads, so I haven’t seen Rudi for such a long time. I am glad you liked your present though :0)
Woof and a lick
