3, 2, 1, 0

So I have been a bit neglectful of the blog, the past week and a bit has been a whirl wind and I will give a brief recap:

3: The number of ticks found on people and dogs after chasing Charles through the forest (see 2, 1)

2: The number of dogs that hopped out of the car just outside of the dog park at Collins Bay (Charles and Turtle)

1: The number of dogs that didn't come when called, ran through the forest for an hour following his nose with J and I chasing after him and only stopped when he ran into a car. (Charles) He came out of the incident with a bloody front nail and a wee bloody lip. There was great hope that the whole incident might knock some sense into him. No such luck!

0: The number of working cameras left at my house, after Finnegan the fat, clumsy cat failed to jump up onto the counter.

Placemats for Dwell

I met on Wednesday with the owner of one of my favourite downtown shops, Dwell. She is taking some of my wares; pillows, placemats and some shadow boxes.

I have been stitching since to make a few other sets of placemats. They are reversible!


Front.


Back.

Set number two in the works...





Stay tuned and check out Dwell's Grand Reopening April 21st!

Stitch, Stitch, Stitch

I finally started quilting the commission piece I have been posting about.


It's a lot of fun! I can't wait to get back at it tomorrow.

Remember This One?

This is the quilt I started ages ago for my sister. And tonight, I finished the binding!


It just needs a wash to get the pet hair off and it can go to its new home!

WiP Wednesday

I haven't posted in far too long, but I have been busy. Below are the basted blocks of the king size quilt I am working on. The front of the quilt is in a green, yellow, brown, red range and the backs are a green, blue range. The aim was to have a reverseable quilt.

















Quilting starts later today!
