I see what you did there :icon_smile:

Riley (the lurcher's name) loves it plus it means we don't have to leave any heating on over night so itr saves a ton of money.

I want one now

Well done you x

I love the all in one and in my favourite fabric as well (i like sheep). My husband would definatly wear it mostly for camping if it was in anything but sheep patterned fleece (he says he wouldn't dream of depriving me of sheep fleece) i have the fabric in a lovely pink colour.

Just one for all the family ?



"Thinks" that taking ISH a tad to far, still I supose it means you can turn the heating off at night,
I can't do great things, so I do little things with love.

Actually i have had requests for more this year and from the menfolk too :lol: :lol:

They may have mocked my husband in his sheep, but they have come running to me now the weather has turned. He has been wearing it every night. he said it was the best present he had ever been given the other night. :thumbright:

Admittedly I'm sure he wouldn't be seen out of the house dead in it though :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't have a sheepish one, but I have been using a Crewsaver fleece undersuit for the long rides and trips on the bike-

But that looks more like a workman's boilersuit - you need to go wild and get one in pink with fluffy bunnies on it! :lol:
