A View of My Quilt Life

Finally ... Friday

Time to wrap up another winter week!

Yesterday's morning commute was a three hour adventure with lake effect snow making a mess of the roads.  

The best thing to do is slow down and take your time driving but not everyone understands that, occasionally resulting in sliding...right off the road.  Not me, thankfully!

 But I did see 3 cars like that - one of which only stopped when it hit a tree. OUCH! No one was injured but someone's day was ruined. Come on, Spring!

Wednesday night found me on the couch, watching Bonnie Hunter's QuiltCam and trimming the last of the dog ears off the HSTs.  Current count stands somewhere around 1372 blue batik HST units ready and waiting. WooHoo!!

Funny things happen when I'm not at the sewing machine. Here we have a picture of Drake being attacked by an alligator:

Here we have a picture of Drake looking at me wondering what I find so funny about having stuffed Gator on his head:

He's a very patient dog - particularly when I'm being rather silly.  Drake is proud to announce that he is an Uncle. Three precious puppies were born two and a half weeks ago - 1 boy and 2 girls. 

Boy, Girl, Girl

This much anticipated litter was the result of over a year of careful planning, responsible breed research and rigorous health screening!  The boy looks very much like Drake at this age. I am so tempted...

Hope you all have a quilty weekend! I have two tack sales to attend and want to fit in some time either continuing to quilt the Chirp, Chirp project or finally stitching some HSTs into blocks.  Come back on Monday to see how I did.

  1. The alligator hat is perfect for Drake! Why not take all three of the puppies - come on, you know you want to!
