So Penny Pakkun hasn’t really grasped the concept of closing her mouth after having a big slurpy drink of water. She looks up at us – a delighted underbitey grin on her funny little face – and water trickles all over the floor. Sigh.
Obviously, the water bowl needed it’s own little quilted bath mat. Easy peasy and sooo much lovely colourful fun to make.
I dug an old towel out of the caravan that had mysteriously grown holes. Trimmed off the holey bits. Centred a little orphaned block I found in a fabric box. Hunted out some strips and ironed them. Then off I went.
I had a brain freeze at the very end and not only trimmed off the final strip of blue atrociously crookedly – I followed the towel’s line instead of the fabric – guess which was straighter! Then to make it worse – I bound it. Lay it on the floor to admire and realised “Bugger!”
Oh well. I don’t mind. Maybe one day when there is utterly nothing else to do I will unpick the binding, trim it off and redo it. Hmmm … methinks there will always be something better to do.
The mat is ever so pretty – looks like the water bowl now sits amidst a bed of colourful flowers! And a good strip of the lorax – the best of all garden lovers.
And surprise, surprise, Penny Pakkun was perfectly happy to stand on it whilst having a drink. Job done!
