Who let the dogs out......huh, huh, huh???
Or however that song goes! I just realised things were far too quiet here on the home front. I went to check for the dogs in the back yard....and the gate was open!! AUUUGHHHH!
I hollered and hollered, no one came running. I grabbed my keys, ran barefoot to my car...started driving up the street with the windows down, calling and searching. I found them at the end of the street.....the neighbors dogs were barking up a storm at something that excited them, I looked across the street and there they were. Buddy and Sadie together...just meandering around people's yards on a holiday. BAD DOGS!!!!
Into the car they went and I hauled their doggy butts home scolding them all the way while they panted and smiled at me from their places in the back seat.
At least they stayed TOGETHER! I think that made them easier to find, and probably slowed down their wanderings a bit. I just need to tell people to PLEASE be sure the gate is SHUT all the way when they come in and out of the fence.
Here is a pic of the ugly hawaiian backing I used on the cabin fever quilt. It is NOT a pretty hawaiian...it is grey, gold, and black on white? Bleurgh. Whatever. It is now out of the stash, and every time I see it I will be reminded of the non-quilter friend who thought well enough to bring me back fabric from Hawaii....she meant well, she really did...and I don't have to have it in the FRONT of a quilt :cD
(Did I mention this fabric is a cotton/poly blend? I only found out when I pieced it and went to iron the seam....phewwwwyy....oh well...it's used!)
Here are a couple shots of the quilting on the 9 patch split baby quilt. I was pressed for time and so I just did a winding meandering feather-to-fill over the whole thing. It added great texture and was SO easy.
I'm headed out to take Jeff to work here in bit....massages this afternoon, and choir practice tonight. Wednesday is my busiest day I think.
