This and That

Good morning all. A cloudy old morning greeted me for my walk...nice and cool though. So a hot cuppa in my favourite mug went down a treat when I returned.
Before I  get to the "stitchin' stuff" just wanted to share this beautiful fur-girl "Angel" who is the only female general purpose police dog currently in the service. The very clever people who created the Dog Squad Calendar chose her photo for October which is International Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Our Story Bridge was even lit up for the photo shoot....another lovely photo of her here is in the Calendar. Money raised from the sale of these Calendars supports the National Breast Cancer Foundation and several other important causes. They are available at I know two of these amazing dogs and their handler and they do a phenomenal job! 
If you love dogs, you will love this....I bought one as a gift as well. 
Ok "Stitchin' Stuff"
I have 2 more blocks finished for Roma..

I  had some waiting around to do so took my big flower hexies and got 2 sewn on.
It is growing very slowly.

Also a little spot of Christmas.

Which my very cute Christmas buttons I purchased from Yvonne at Yvonnewdesigns may or may not be for...not saying!

I love Yvonne's beautiful little works of art. If you want to  contact Yvonne you can at 
Don't forget there are lots of Christmas goodies to stitch in my book...

Have a lovely day.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
