I made Cecily a new bed. She has 3 other big soft doggie beds around the house, but she prefers to sleep right next to the Rayburn pipes where its warmest. As I'm invariably trying to cook over and around her with my nervous ankle, I decided that the compromise solution to this tea time standoff was a smaller tread-on-able bed. Its made of two layers of home dec weight fabric, with a squidgy filling of 6 layers of wool and cotton offcuts of batting, anchored with a few cross rows of quilting. Can you see that look? Shes definitely saying 'I'm lying on it to humour you, but honestly, its a bit small and a bit flat mum!'. Version 2 is in the offing, could you resist that look?!
