Nelli’s Post {Dog Gone Cute}


“Audrey tries acupuncture”

Miauu, miauu, it’s me Nelli. I thought to help my friends Nero and Hanna with their puppy project.

You have already met Bruno, the grey puppy but today I like to introduce you Audrey …

Audrey is an artist and she loves flowers! She is a brave girl and wanted to try acupucture …

I think this would be more comfy without all those pins. But I do my best to help. I really help here; as we don’t use quilting frame, I hold the quilt tight when Teje is stitching. Nero and Hanna had well deserved nap while I was working …


Nero and Hanna have worked hard with this {Dog Gone Cute} project. They have to be ready 27th of October when they will show their project in Lorna’s blog hop.

I can’t show you more about the project so I show you sweet rosies I picked from our little garden and I show you some sweet selfies …

… aaahhh, cat’s life is great!

I heard Nero and Hanna whispering something and I think they are planning to make a cat quilt for me because I have been a good helper with this {Dog Gone Cute} project. I would be the happiest cat if I get my very own kitten quilt! But don’t say anything that I listened secretely.

This is my other favourite place to lie down. Here I pretend I help with the laundry!

Now I think I shall take off some of those pins so that I can sleep better … oups ment of course to work better!

Before I leave I have to tell you what Nero did this morning. He went for a walk and made poo and then stepped on his poo! Oh those puppy boys! I would never do that. If my litter is not clean I call loudly help! In fact they could put some nice smelling flowers there …

Okey, that’s for today. Thanks a lot for visiting and reading my post! I hope to be a guest writer soon again. Have a good week and don’t step on p…

  3. Hienoa, että sinäkin Nelli teit oman blokin. Audry on hyvin soma. Oli hauska lukea sinun päivän hommista. Kyllä kissatkin osaa yhtä ja toista. Sinulla on niin ihanat tassut! Kirjoittele taas pian!

  11. I think it is going to be a super cute quilt. But Nelli is beyond adorable. Love the selfies and her soft pink paws.

    • Thank you Martha! I like paws of cats and dogs! It’s nice to hold Nero’s paw in my hand – hardly fits in my hand. And cats have the cutes, pink paws. x Teje
