Hi folks! I think Winter is playing an April's Fools joke on us today. It isn't very warm outside today.
I've been running behind last week and this week. Mom injured her neck and I've been very busy taking care of her. Last Monday and Tuesday, my dog sister, Pooh Bear and I were right by her side making sure she was comfortable and had everything she needed. Especially, doggie love. The best cure for whatever ails you. My dog sisters and I are good at doggie love.
Mom finally felt well enough to come back to work late last week but I had a lot to get caught up on and take care of Mom at the same time. I was a busy pup.
We also have a new resident woodchuck that has moved into the den Mom keeps filling in. I have been patrolling the Shop backyard for it and the squirrel that keeps teasing me. I almost got the squirrel last week but he made to the fence. I can't jump very high with these stubby little legs but I tried really, really hard to jump up and get that pesky squirrel.
We've had several new fabrics come in this past month. We have Riley Blake's CAT Buildin' Crew playmat and couple of coordinating fabrics. The playmat is made of 100% Cotton Canvas to make it durable for some hard "work" by your little construction workers
Quilting Treasures digital "In theWilderness" panel and overall 'In the Wilderness" digital print some new Benartex and Kanvas have arrived as well
Quilting Treasures Kenzie has also arrived. We also have Rachel Rossi's "Stow Away" bag pattern that makes up into a cheerful bag using the prints from Kenzie. The big flower print would make a beautiful One Block Wonder or Stack in Whack, too.
Moda's "Fresh off the Vine" by Holly Taylor is here along with "On Meadow Pond" by Kansas Troubles, "Prairie Grass" by Holly Taylor and "Sweet Violet" by Jan Patek.
