Yes, I'm still alive!

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

I just did my cotton robin today so you are not the only one procrastinating. I have my last one but I am not happy with what I've done. Need to work more on it.

I love old dogs. They are just so in tune with you.
