We are a puppy partner for Dogs For Good, and our sponsored puppy Zuri is now 11 months old!
We’ve received an update on her progress from Judy, her socialiser. Judy writes “Zuri is maturing into a very lovable and well behaved dog. She has a beautiful glossy coat that people always comment on. Like all young pups she is excited when she meets new people but this is only because she is still learning and desperately wants to please everyone and be their friend. She loves children and makes herself small by flattening to the ground when she meets them, a trick she invented herself! We can see that Zuri is exceptionally bright and quick to learn. Her favourite toy is her ball but she also has a box of soft toys and other things that she brings us to play with in the evenings. We also have interactive games, she loves her food so needless to say she has no problem in working out how to get the treats. She likes roaming the garden an exploring, and of course eating! Her behaviour when out and about at events and in the public eye is very good and she is a lovely affectionate girl, I’m very proud of her. She loves going out on her daily free runs and playing with all her doggie pals at the local park.
We have visited lots of places, the usual weekly shopping trips to a variety of shops, visiting family and friends, cafe’s and restaurants. She has also accompanied me on several charity talks and visits, most notably the Cornbury Music Festival, where she helped on the Dogs For Good stand and wandered with us round the site as we talked about the charity to the festival crowds; her behaviour was excellent, as always.”
We love following Zuri’s progress, and we hope you do to. Our next update will be in a couple of months time when Zuri is around 13 months.

These adorable little fuzzy, white-tailed bumble bees cause
such a buzz around the office of Tudor Rose Patchwork that I just had to have a
Alison Cremona of Felt and Dandy was the tutor for the day
and she guided us through the process of creating our own unique bumble bees.
We followed a guide that showed us the specific stripes of each bee, and taking
big tufts of felt we began stabbing away. I had to be careful and keep my
fingers far away from the special barbed felting needle, but when your stabbing
away at a tiny little felt bee it’s inevitable that you stab yourself….
After a little while of stabbing away, my bumble bee started
to take shape and shortly after it was time to trim around it and add the legs
and wings. After the bees all had their legs and wings it was time to do some
reverse felting. This involved a different needle that brought the felt back
out of the shape you had just so well stabbed together, however by bringing the
felt out it created the cute fuzzy appeal that made these bees so adorable in
the first place. Once all 3 bumble bees
were finished we got the frame and words and started to assemble our entomological
Alison brought along lots of little accessories that could
be added if we wished. Some of the class decided to leave their bees simple; I
however wanted to add some sparkles so I chose a crown and some flowers to add.
These adorable little fuzzy, white tailed bumble bees now
take pride of place in my craft room.
There’s another Bumble Bee Family felting day coming up in September, although if bees aren’t your thing, Felt and Dandy will also be here running other felting workshops throughout the year, click here to see them all.
