Rick & Mona’s little precious dog Beanie is hiding in the bushes, hoping that Sadie is done chasing her for a while!
These two are just best buds when they get together, and it’s a big to-do.
Sadie chases Beanie, Beanie chases Sadie! And when Beanie is done with it she finds somewhere small to crawl into to show Sadie a thing or two ---“Hahaha! You can’t get me if I’m under the ramp to the shed!”
I caught this photo with the daffodils in the back yard at the cabin while both Sadie and Beanie were taking a well deserved time out.
It makes me tired just to watch them!
There was much stitching last night, and I finished the binding on the Serpentine Web:
I love the how the green binding looks!
This is going up to Alaska with me in May, I’m teaching this workshop for the Forget-me-knot quilters in Delta Junction. They will have two options to set their spider web blocks…the traditional way, block to block, or shift the rows by half a block to get this fun layout!
While stitching, I have to admit that I found a new Netflix Binge –The Killing. What a series! It’s a police drama, but there are a lot of politics involved, and every episode things get deeper and deeper and there are whammies to the story at every turn. Just when you think you have it figured out – it comes unraveled! If you love “Who dunnit” type shows – like Law & Order, CSI, NCIS, etc – check it out. There are 4 seasons, and I’m just started season 2, and I can’t stop!
Today will NOT be a treadle on the deck day. The wind has come up, temps only around 45 so far this morning. WINDY! My wind chimes are beating out a tune in hyper time.
So it was not so easy to take these photos:
Done done done!
Yep, I like it!
Close up of fabrics!
One thing you probably can’t tell in the photo is there are two different background yellows. I ran out. Because my original plan was just to have these in rounds and I had enough for one yellow round, medallion style, but I didn’t like what the quilt was doing so I scrapped that idea. And I needed more yellow. I got just as close as I could, and I think it adds to the vintage appeal to have to switch to something else close.
Hurry! Take a deck rail pic before the wind catches it and blows it down!
This quilt is a variation on the String Spider Web pattern found under the Free Patterns tab at the top of the blog. Everything is the same, but I shifted every other row by half a block and filled in with half blocks on the ends of the alternate rows. No directions given at this time.
Because it is a very blustery and chilly day you will find me here:
Making a blue piano key border!
Strips have been sewn into pairs, pairs will be joined into fours, and then I will cut them to the width they need to be. Then fours will be come eights which will then become sixteens and eventually I’ll have a border!
Whatever you get up to today ---make the most of it!
