  1. Your posts are never boring so dont worry about that, they always make me smile!! Lancelot appears to take looking after his food very seriously!! 😊 Best wishes to Han and her new venture!! I would love to enter your give away (as always!!lol) my favourite hobby is quilting, love putting together fabric to create something new, I also like doing classes to learn a new technique. I am currently doing a travelling journal between myself and three people in the US, great to read about other people's every day lives and to add stickers, doodles etc. Too many interests, not enough time!!!! Boy 39 deg is super hot for you guys, hope you were able to keep cool. Off to check out the etsy shop.

  11. I love, love Han's animals! They are really clever! Too cute!
    Your dog is also a cutie! Royal Canin food is available here, too!
    You know that my favorite things to do are either cross stitch, or playing the piano! Those give me pleasure! I've been in a bit of a slump lately with the cross stitch, but I still love it and plan to get some finishing done some day! HA

  18. Happy Blogaversary and congratulations to Han on her new venture! Her designs are so unusual I'm sure they will be a success.
    It didn't quite hit 39!!! degrees in the North West but it's been too hot even for stitching.
    I would love to enter your giveaway but have been spoiled by your generosity in the past so please don't include me this time, I think someone else should have a turn! I'm curious to see what you have made however...hope you will show it on your blog once it's been received.
