Sewing and Puppies

Had a really good day yesterday in the workshop.  We did quilt as you go double-sided quilts and although it was a bit tricky at first, by the end of the day everyone had completed four blocks and sashed one to another:

I think they're brilliant - and they all look so different.

And then there was Jo, who naturally is working on a completely different quilt so wanted to know the quilt as you go method but wasn't interested in the double-sided bit:

She used the Janet Bolton pictures but, as usual, personalised them.  Can't wait to see the whole quilt!

Then today George and I went to see our 6 week old puppy - we can have him at 8 weeks so we have time to prepare.  The puppies have been moved out into the barn now (8 puppies running around a kitchen floor is as bad as 8 lambs!) and were all snug in the straw.  Mum has been really great but has lost interest a bit now.  Unfortunately I forgot my camera so the pictures aren't that great:

This is Mum and Dad:

And that cute little thing between them is Pop, or Ned, or Alan, or whatever we finally decide to call him!

Can't wait!!


  1. Oooh! How lovely! I'm referring to the puppy mostly but of course the quilting looks fabulous too ;-)
    Also, my puppy name vote is for Ned but preferably not ALAN!

  2. Will have to come and visit once he is home. .carolyn

  3. Carolyn thinks Ned is a Donkey's name. How's your wrist?

  4. How could you possibly choose and is he an early Xmas present? All the quilt blocks are fab but love that first one particularly.
