    About

    Rosie my bull terrier loves to dress up and acted as a very willing model for this little number I made. The outfit was then uploaded to a Facebook auction which raised funds to pay for vet treatment for rescued bull terriers.
    As you can see from the second picture Rosie likes to keep a watchful eye on how I organise my delivery of yarn from Love Knitting.
    The other pics show some of my toy animal projects made from the wonderful Alan Dart patterns.

      Aww, thank you Maria. It's a shame she didn't win but as long as our submission made people smile, I'm happy x

      As much as I adore felines, you & Rosie should've won the Pawfect Projects competition. Someone had to say it.

      We've got a Bull Terrier puppy, he's almost 4 months old and loves to help me knit by grabbing balls of yarn and running round the kitchen table, and through the chair legs. He thinks this is hilarious. I love your sunflower!

        Bullies do test your patience sometimes but they are very entertaining ... you've got so much to look forward to with a bullie puppy in the house!

      Just love it! It really made me laugh. Your dog models it a treat. That's a lovely idea to raise funds for vet treatment for rescued bull terriers.

        Aww, thanks Julie, bull terriers never fail to make you laugh, they're clowns of the dog world. You can find out more about the group who raise funds via their website http://www.westcountrybulliewalks.co.uk/
