T for Tuesday by the bag lady.

 I'm strangely excited by this new bag described as a knitting organiser. I'm going to post more details in a comparison of the bags I have so far.This is the new bag and my lovely sheep mug full of raw cacao hot chocolate. There seems to be a shortage of ground vanilla at the moment and I've nearly run out. Can't buy it anywhere! It's time for T on Tuesday at Elizabeth and Bleubeard's place and I have to apologise once more for not visiting all the lovely people who left me comments last time.

This was supposed to be a comparison shot, might have to redo these.

Sooty just had to be in the picture!

After the heatwave of the last week we had to have thunderstorms and torrential rain. Trapped in the greenhouse Luna decided to sample the bamboo which might have been a bad idea because she's now got an upset tummy!

I bought some cravats for the dogs which donates money to the D.O.G rescue charity in Cyprus and they badly need funds to pay the kennel fees for all the dogs in their care.
We went to another fun dig show and both dogs won a rosette this time. Sooty was so proud of his!

Finally some crochet. I made this cardigan from an Inside Crochet pattern ages ago and now I've lost more weight I like it. It's supposed to be worn with a narrow belt but I think I want a few buttons. I've done this post on my secondhand iPad and I now know it's not easy!


  1. LOVE the cardigan. Its really a beautiful color. I knit, don't crochet, and I haven't made a sweater in a long long time. maybe its time after seeing yours. You've inspired me. :) The pups looks quite handsome in their bandannas. Orange is a good color on both of them. Happy T day. Enjoy your coco and hope you can find some vanilla soon. Hugs-Erika

  2. Hi there, so your dog got sick from eating something he shouldn't-hoping he feels much better now, loving your bag and your handmade crochet cardigan-very pretty
    Happy T Day

  3. SO glad you joined us again this week, Cazzy. I really enjoyed this. I'd love to know which bag you prefer, even though I'm not one who crochets or knits. I DO know that Darla does, so she might be interested in learning more about them.

    That's a beautiful sweater. I don't wear belts (they are a four letter word), but I think buttons would be perfect.

    Sooty looks so happy to have won the ribbon and Luna always makes me laugh. They are both so adorable, and look like they are finally getting along.

    Thanks for sharing your raw cacao hot chocolate, too. I had no idea they make ground vanilla. I've never bought anything but the beans and the liquid. I learned something new.

    Thanks, too for sharing your new crochet bags, your lovely dogs, and your sweater with us for T this Tuesday.

  4. Lovely photos of your four footed friends. Nice jacket, too. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  5. your dogs look so cute with their neckerchiefs on..that cardigan is amazing and love the bag too

  6. Beautiful post and the cardigan is gorgeous and looks wonderful on you.

    Have a very Happy T Day

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. Hi Cazzy and Happy T day! I crochet once a long time ago when my daughter was born and she's now 30! I made her a baby blanket... very simple one... then i laid down my crochet hook and only picked it up again several years ago and made myself a scarf......... I need to do it again.. Maybe this winter while watching TV... Love your cardigan and love seeing a picture of you and your puppies! Hugs! deb

  8. That is a fine looking cardigan and it looks perfect on you! Your new bag looks great for all you do with your crochet work. And your pups are so cute-they do look proud of their kerchiefs :) Happy T day!

  9. I like your new bag, it looks just the job for organising your knitting with all those useful compartments 😀. Hope Luna is feeling much better and Sooty does look very proud of his rosette, doesn't he. Your cardigan is such a lovely colour and design, it really suits you. Happy T Day! J 😊

  10. Its a lovely crochet cardigan and your array of bags looks interesting and seems to have many compartments, I always like bags like this.
    The dogs look so sweet, with their scarfs and rosette, I hope Luna has recovered now.
    Happy T day.

  11. That looks like a great organizing bag, Cazzy. I get excited about such things as well ;-)

    Awww, the photo of Sooty and Luna in their cravats is just precious. Congratulations to them both for their ribbons.

    The sweater looks lovely on you and I agree that buttons would be better.

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

  12. You certainly look organised! I love your cardigan - I think you are right to go with buttons! Sooty and Luna look so cute! (sorry Sooty, but you do!) Happy T Day! Chrisx

  13. I admire your ability to crochet a clothing item! Looks very nice on you. your dogs are really cute too😉
