Photos today of Gibbs, and some crafting for dogs! First up, a couple of Gibbs during one of our daily walks in the park, where Gibbs burns off all that excess energy . . . either swimming
or simply charging around, enjoying the freedom of wide open spaces
After a good run around, Gibbs usually zonks out for a nice long nap in the afternoon . . . and, as I showed you recently, I decided he needed a few new bed covers, to allow me to wash & dry regularly.
After the fairly stitch/embroidery intensive bed cover, made using strips of denim from old jeans, which looked like this
I had a rummage in my boxes of heavy-weight fabrics, and set to work on a second cover.
This one was a lot quicker to make, since I just have one main panel and two bands on one side. Reverse side is a boring khaki fabric. I had enough of this “bordeaux” fabric to go ahead and make a second cover.
Zooming in here, to show you a close up of the central panel. This second cover is going to be for our neighbour’s dog: Moka, a chocolate labrador. I’ve got enough of my recycled bed quilts to make a mattress to fit. There’s no reason why Gibbs should be the only dog to enjoy a comfy bed!
