Would someone please tell me where April has gone? It's over in a week, and I have no clue where it went.
I got my next piece in the Cotton Robin I'm doing, and it reminded me that I FORGOT ALL ABOUT THE one I have here to put on another border! ARGH! I cannot believe that I didn't get this done 2 or 3 weeks ago.
Anyhow, I spent most of the afternoon putting my borders together and then sewing them on. I like them, they are pretty cool looking. Of course, I can't show them until everyone has received their finished quilts.
I have never in my life pieced a border before, but I have now, 2 of them! And it's not all that hard, but I did
do a little bit of praying when I put this one together!
I was trying to see if I could introduce some more color into this little quilt, it's very cool, but there's not a lot of color in it. And I'm usually all about color. :)
It's supposed to go out by the 25th, so I may take one more day to look at it and ponder it and see if I come up with any ideas to put some more color in it!
And now I have a very cool quilt that I must sandwich up and back and quilt. It's on the smallish side, and that's a very good thing for me! I'll sandwich it and then put it up and look at it for a week or so, so much fun!
Life here is good. The weather is warm now and that's just wonderful. A week ago it was COLD again, but that only lasted for a day or three. :)
Dogs are doing well. Rudy is a very good boy. He's pretty smart too. He will 'tinkle' on command and 'make a doodle' on command for me now. Magick did that for me, must be a poodle thing! The greyhounds just look at me like I've lost my mind and walk away and ignore me.. and yes, I did try to teach them to go on command, but no go. :) I have a table next to my front door. It's full of socks and undies! Rudy always grabs something out of my laundry room when he goes out! So there's a stack on that table because I take it away from him there. Silly little boy. Sug is doing a lot of playing with Rudy and she's even seeming to come out of her shell a little more now that Lulu's gone. I love her dearly and hope she stays healthy for another year or so. My Cali was 15 when she left, so that would be about 2 more years for Sugar. :)
Ok, gotta fix something to eat and then it will be just about time for last turnout and sleep!! Yay!!
Have a great week and God Bless. Anne
