A long over due update

Wow hard to believe that 3 months have gone by since my last post.  So, where should I start?

Well, my Love Bird Lane block of the month top is finished.  love bird lane BOM

I have to work on the borders.  I am going to try something different.  This border will be scalloped and another flower border is going to be sewn on.

I was hired to make a Heart of Roses quilt for a couple who are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary.


My dog Chloe was poisoned and after weeks of treatment I had to put her to sleep.  The poison had done to much damage to her digestive track.  We have a suspect to the poisoning but no hard proof. 

But, on a happy note.  I have adopted a new dog from our local ASPCA.       


Maggie, a 2 year old Black Lab.  She is such a special dog.  While at obedience class the instructor asked that Maggie and I stay after class.  The instructor took Maggie into another class room and worked with her.  Maggie has been trained beyond the normal companion dog.  With out a microchip or a tattoo it is difficult to know for sure but the instructor feels that Maggie was trained to be a service dog.  She recommended that I take her on to a different class.  Maggie and I attended that class and wow do I have a lot to learn.  LOL Maggie proved to me that she knows it, and now I have to learn how to use what she knows.  

I hope you had a wonderful summer and were able to get some quilting done.  I will try not to wait so long between posts.
