ART & CRAFTS
My MOST favourite Artist in breed – June Leitch in UK – every piece is breathtaking and gives you a several (!) impressions of ESSENCE of this wonderful breed.
I wish I’d have a words enough to describe better :)
In every statue made by June Leitch, I see some moments of my own Afghan Hounds,
when they express their essence in certain moments.
Sure, I am not only one sees own dogs, but talent of June is awesome.
Let me a show ! Here comes Roxanna, ears in wind!
With this beautiful cake we are stepping from 2015 into 2016. It is February when I writing this…. just before Xmas we got the busiest times ever , enjoying the company and time with our grandchild and quality time. The website and blogging was on my to-do list but somewhat lost the mojo – we were just enjoying our family and our dogs. That should be read of course the way that we consider our dogs to be our family too.
Well, it is now February and I am trying to update many things in blog…show results, photos and news as always, maybe even some more during next month.
TOP of Al Khabara 2015 is updated and I hope none in missing
Lilli is known to inspire the photographers but now she seem inspired one of us to grab the pen and draw her up :)
DIY vol 2.
Was: old unused belts
Now: few new collars for our darlings
Marks & Spencer have great collector items on sell, Scottish shortbread cookies in very special tin. After seeing in Facebook my friends in UK started to share the info how many tins are still left in different M & S stores we went to our Marks & Spencer here in Estonia and bought them too.
There is different picture on each 4 side of tin and it creates picture if 4 tins side by side. Cookies are delicious too. Me likes!

Just could’nt resist to upload whole series of Entel posing for camera.
Please notice she is wearing her new collar handmade by me.
This type of soft collars are so good in every day usage.
I might have few available , contact me if you like it.
See the photos:
Some times ago I was posting about my DIY project when I wanted to try out leatherwork, and made collars for our own dogs.
No surprising that I get so easily into new addictions, this one was not to be meant different in any way :)
So I did some more collars – these six I donated to charity match show for their awards.
Match show was held last weekend here in Estonia and was arranged by MTU Jooksev Koer.
Ther show helping handicapped three legged dogs by crafting the supporting frames so these dogs can walk again.
Probably not hard to guess that this looks like DIY collar project. Something what I have had in my mind quite long time and is in my mind actually every time when we have puppies. So the best solution is to make them to be ready for our next puppies.
Just unbelievable how can I get addicted every time when I try the new type of crafts!
So I bought more paisley fabric and making new soft leather collars for all ours.
Scroll down to see how they turned out :)
All these photos I was happy to see as lovely surprise, all of them were taken as candid from ringside in shows.
I am going to publish them in next posts.
This beautiful portrait of Lilli – C.I.B CH Al Khabara Graceful Me is by Soile Huomo, kennel Hearthill in Finland.
We always have admired Soile’s great talent to capture the moments and breed essence in one click. It is always emotions included in Soile’s photos.
Here is our Lilli, standing side of our show tent, just before entering to show ring. Look at that proud expression, knowing her value, she seem to have a plan to show off, and there seem to be something in her mind we only can guess :)
Thank you Soile for this great portrait and also for the beautiful movement shot of Lilli is showring:
