The shaggy dog!

New photo of our shaggy puppy Maxwell. He is really needing his first haircut. But, he gets neutered tomorrow, and I don't want to throw too many "traumas" at him all at once. He let me cut his toenails on sunday - a nice surprise!

Latest quilt top

This is the first quilt top I have finished since my shoulder surgery in July.... actually, it's the first quilt top I have finished in the last year due to the issues I was having with my shoulder. The pattern is called "Yellow Brick Road".

Scottie Feedsack material

This antique quilt was on display at the Columbus IN quilt show. While looking it over, I discovered two colorways of scottie feedsack material. I had forgotten to take my camera, so I want to thank Ruthie for snapping this pic for me!

Fall Colors

Fall has arrived - photos of our burning bush and the maple tree in the back yard. The colors are spectacular, not to mention the cooler temperatures!

Quilt Show road trip

Ruthie, Tammy, Peggy & I went to a quilt show in Valparaiso saturday. Along the way we stopped at Bits 'n Pieces quilt shop in Crown Point. Here we are at the Red Robin enjoying a late lunch and a frosty cold beer. (Tammy had raspberry iced tea). On the way home we stopped at Fair Oaks Dairy to enjoy some home-made ice cream -- it was soooo creamy & very yummy!
