In My Next Life...


I am going to be a pillow (cover) maker.  


I love pillows.



I love looking at them.




I love using them.



I love stacking them.

the somewhat leaning tower of pillows

I love sewing them.



I love pillows.

I may be addicted.  
(I say that because I have made 16 pillow covers in the last 12 months...
most of them since I moved here to Colorado 6 months ago.)

To Honor All the Chocolate Labs I Have Loved...



I received a gift in the mail today.

For me.  From me.

Commissioned by me.

A mug mat with a friendship star block.

And the head of a brown dog.


Made by Donna

(who was first mentioned here).

A machine embroidered headstudy 

of a Chocolate Labrador.

Not (just) Tag.

All of the brown dogs I have loved...

Dutch, Tucker, Jigs, and Tag.

The workmanship on this is excellent.

Superb, really.

Donna worked very hard to ensure

that everything was perfect.

She did an outstanding job.

I love this.

I love her.

I am blessed.

Yet another pillow cover...note the side ties.
Quilt top done...project begun with Brenis...she cut the strips and got me started.


And, that's basically it.  A few other projects have been started...will show you when they are completed.

Big news...me Mum and sister Julie are moving here.  I am very excited about this.  It will be great for me Mum to be in the same place as 3 of her daughters.  It has been more than 25 years since I moved away, and I am so looking forward to spending time with her.

I have been really lax at posting on my blog.  I considered discontinuing, but decided that I really wanted the documentation of my projects...and I know there are some of my readers who are not on Facebook (not that I post a lot on there, though, either).  So, I will continue...and will try to be more regular.

In the meantime, have a great week.
