Lots has been going on this week. We've been inundated with cuteness all round so there are lots of pics of my babies just being well, cute!!
Charlotte has been having trouble with her hip since the weather has changed and gotten cooler so we're back on the Rimadyl. She still wants to go with me when I walk at the library with the girls and I'm still trying to take her even though I feel guilty when she starts hobbling so we slow down for her...she has become one of 'the girls' herself.

2nd DOT and quilting

After taking her nap, Charlotte came in and helped me work on the quilt top. If you look closely you can see the thread on her nose...silly puppy!

The top and bottom sashings were added and the rows were sewn together. All that's left to do is add the borders and the top will be finished!!

quilt progress

Piecing the blocks together and adding the sashing to seperate each I've gotten the 3 rows sewn together and am off to pin the sashings to the top and bottom of each...I love to pin...arghhh


This was in a joke that was going around and I thought it was very suitable for Dogs On Thursday...hope you and yours have a delightful DOT!!

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or play with it,

Just pee on it and walk away.

I finally finished the Seaside Socks! They were made with Knit Picks Memories yarn in Yukon colorway. These will be a Christmas present since they are a little taller than I really like.

Quilt update

I sewed the pieced for the blocks together and for the sashings between the finished blocks. Ironing is on the bill for tomorrow. ;)

DOT - Charlotte helps quilt

Charlotte and Wilbur started the day off helping me pick out the fabrics for the Carolina Comfort quilt in the post below.

Then we headed off to the bathroom to take a for all...well Wilbur loves the bathtub but Charlotte, not so much, however at least she has quit whining the entire time we are in there...maybe because Wilbur jumped in at the same time I was able to get Charlotte into the tub...BOYS!!! Anyway, the pups are clean, the towels are in a pile waiting for their turn in the washer, the bathroom has been febreezed so it now smells like ode de apple spice/wet dog...which is significantly better than the ode de stinky wet dog before spraying.

Anyway after I showered and everyone was smelling better, Charlotte and I set to cutting out the fabrics for the quilt.

It's hard work laying under the ironing board watching mom cut fabric!

Todays project is the Quilter Magazine's free online project Carolina Comfort which I am doing in these colors:

The large pink rose print will be the focal fabric. The pink hearts will replace the yellow cornerstones.
The light blue swirl fabric will replace the green sashing strips, small cornerstones and for the binding.
The blue & lavendar batik will be used in place of the ribbon border.
The large blue flower print will be used for the outside border.

DOT post

Wilbur's being a sweet big brother and giving Charlotte a puppy bath. He is so good to her and keeps her very clean....

....she does not reciprocate...guess that's the advantage of being the little sister.
