grlandherdog Morning cargo. The summer colours are ending and I'm hoping the frost holds off long enough for fall blooms. #dahlias #fennel #cosmos #lavender #scabiosa #cutflowergarden #gardenclub #gardenbouquets 2d

grlandherdog Some days are disappointing - but dinner isn't! Instant noodles dressed up with fresh from the garden kale, swiss chard, eggplant and green onions, plus a poached egg. Soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, garlic, siracha and sesame seeds for the broth. I am soothed. 6d

grlandherdog Shhhh, don't tell Shakes, I got my Lady Maisy fix today. 1w
  •   grlandherdog @make_something I forgot to ask you - in your calculations, how wide should I cut the binding to make the .75 metres of the work to bind 100"sq swoon? Thank you so much! 1w
  •   make_something I cut 2.25" but I gave you enough to do 2.5" if that's your preference 1w
  •   grlandherdog @make_something ok! And that's cut in straight strips (not on the bias)? Sorry - super excited to get cutting tonight. 1w

grlandherdog A pile of legs. One of those dog mysteries - so compact on a chair, but sooooo sprawled out on our bed. 1w
  •   craftsylisa Heh. 1w
  •   quiltedfabricart An angel with fur 1w
  •   grlandherdog @quiltedfabricart that he is. Except when raiding the garbage or jail breaking into the neighbours yard. 1w
  •   julienash85 This is indeed the mystery that haunts me every night. How can 8 pound Louie take up 1/3 of the bed? How!? 1w
  •   grlandherdog @julienash85 right?! Shakes has long legs - see pic above as my evidence but still it's unbelievable how they can be such bed hogs. I'm off to sleep on my ledge of the bed now. 1w
  •   mmiblogs Looks like a little lamb 1w

grlandherdog The weather has been messing with me today - ruining my plans when I tried to go out in the morning, gorgeous when I was in the middle of house work and poured when I took a break from dress making to take Shakes out. But I got this done (hemming still to be done) - Colette Myrtle in bamboo jersey. Super comfy, but little too blousey in the top, will try a small next time. #colettemyrtle 1w
  •   katherine_skene This is beautiful on you! 1w
  •   createsomething Looks awesome!! 1w
  •   gksagenda I think it looks great on you as is, but a smaller size would look good too. Take off that grumpy face! You have a pretty new dress! 1w
  •   _theworkroom Love it! 1w
  •   grlandherdog @katherine_skene @createsomething @_theworkroom thank you! @gksagenda oh haha! That's my concentrating-dorky-selfie face lol. I do love the dress - the belt is a must. This is the first of two more dresses to finish (two Monetas) and THEN I can tackle the Alabama tank dress project. 1w
  •   heyso_ I don't think the front is blousy at all an reall maybe a bit of taking in at te side bodice seam but it looms good and great colour! 1w
  •   grlandherdog @heyso_ thanks! Yeah, now that I know how it fits I'll know to take in the sides a bit before attaching the skirt to the bodice. Just no bending forward in this one! 1w

grlandherdog Thursday night food trucks at Ryerson United Church in #Ancaster! Dobro Jesti Slovenian Schnitzel with a side of giant risotto balls! 2w
  •   suzfrench Yum!! 2w
  •   grlandherdog @__shananigan__ I only ate half so dinner for tomorrow is done too lol. 2w
  •   julienash85 Ancaster is my home town!! 2w
  •   grlandherdog @julienash85 really?! I'm in Burlington so it's really close! It's so pretty - we've never really explored there before but I want to. When you come to visit sometime we should meet up! 2w
  •   julienash85 Absolutely! We will be in the area in late October with the pups so we could set up a play date for them finally! 2w
  •   grlandherdog @julienash85 oh that would be awesome!! Using the word "play" loosely lol. Any recommendations for me to explore in Ancaster? Oh...your big day is fast approaching!! 2w
  •   julienash85 Yes the big day is 29 days away. We have so much left to do! In Ancaster there is a farmers market on Wednesday evenings, and also an amazing ice cream stand called the Purple Pony. They might be closed though if the weather has turned cooler. 2w
  •   julienash85 And play is a loose concept in our household too! Louie will sniff other dogs and maybe play a bit if he is not too intimidated. Lilly will hide behind us for a bit until she is certain the new dog won't hurt her. Then she might play a bit! 2w

grlandherdog Curled up and passed out - pretty much what I want to do after a Monday. Also, I don't know why he can't tuck his legs up to save space when he's on our bed. 2w
