This is the squinty-smile of a very happy dog who LOVES being out doors!
When Sadie is in her happy place, she takes off like her tail is on fire and runs as hard and as fast as she can.
Her joy is exuberant, her happiness unconstrained.
This morning before breakfast we took her out on the hiking trails around the cabin ---these trails are much unused, other than the deer, and she was discovering deer smells everywhere.
Off she goes running, tail wagging fiercely!
So much to discover, must smell EVERYTHING!
((Can you even find a little golden dog amidst the leaves in this photo?!))
I can see mountain ridges through the trees as we hike – by the time these trees leaf out, you won’t be able to see ANYTHING through them. Enjoy the view now while we can!
Sadie still runs ahead, kicking up leaves!
Ever watch a dog throw back its ears and take off at breakneck speed? You would think she was part greyhound ---When the “Zoomies” take her over she is lightning fast, and you can tell she has never been happier. We got in almost a couple of miles and she has been crashed out since..LOL
I finished cutting all of my base rectangles for my Lozenges last night. This is a shot of my Quilting Nook area down in the basement of the cabin….ironing board covered with 3.5” strips – I’m sewing at the 301 in the card table and the tall table to the right is the farm table that was here in this basement area when we bought the cabin. It’s up on bed risers to bring it to a better height for me.
More cutting of 2” black squares for the Lozenge Project going on here on top of the cutting table.
I’ve purposed this caddy from Ikea as a way to hold my Lozenge project contained.
All 400+ rectangles are on the far side –I’ve cut a bunch of black squares, and have started off with a handful of neutrals – I need to pull those out of the 2” squares drawer, and I didn’t bring those with me, so I’ve cut SOME from 2” strips. The caddy will make it handy to move from place to place.
I’ve started in on the baby quilt for my sister ---and in between the seams I’ve been sewing Lozenges…..they build really fast!
This is going to be a fun fun quilt!
Have a great afternoon/evening everyone!
