I have (mostly) all day, every day, available to craft to my hearts content and yet, since a week before Christmas, no crafting has taken place. Having a puppy who I dote upon, has taken every waking moment of my time. I’m either feeding him; playing with him; in the garden with him; removing things from his mouth that he shouldn’t have (boy oh boy! what a cavernous mouth he has for a puppy!); cleaning up accidents he has (where he’s missed the puppy pad – front legs on but back legs not!); or simply loving him.

I ‘needed’ to own them so that I could look at them – and for a while they sat on my dressing table where I could see them, and pick them up too, because they’re so amazingly tactile and they feel so lovely in the hand!
A few weeks after I’d bought them I looked at them and had an idea that maybe I could make something a little inspired by them, perhaps a pendant, either on a beaded necklace or hung on a coloured rope type necklace. So I…
