Another day changing the newspapers for the puppies – wow, I can’t believe how many newspapers I use everyday. I so appreciate all the donations of food, money, newspapers! I need it all! Thank you!
Remember two weeks ago tomorrow was National JellyRoll Day – finished my project a couple days ago and today I put it on the table. This was a very easy-to-make quilt and an easy one to use on either table, too.
Millie is usually so cooperative but not today.
This easy Jellyroll quilt is from Strip Savvy.
I actually got some sewing in last night, a bit this afternoon and I’m going to sew rows together tonite. This is “Sock It To Me”, a new pattern I bought in Minneapolis last summer.
And if you love gorgeous embroidery, check out this book by Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill Studio.
This is my favorite project! It’s called Needlework Garden Stitch Sampler – 8″ x 10″!
I have had to give up handwork because of so much arthritis in my fingers. On Monday I’m seeing a hand specialist who is (hopefully) going to give me a cortisone shot in my middle finger. Yup, my naughty finger! Haha! I can’t close my fingers or grip anything. People ask how I can sew or play the piano – easy! I don’t have to close my fingers into a fist or hold on to anything – like a hand needle.
Everywhere I look I find unfinished projects – I was looking in my cupboards for a specific pattern. Found 4 more UFO’s in bags – but didn’t find what I was looking for. I also opened this picnic basket and found this! Ugh.
Oh, so many projects to work on!
Nala had a good day today – the puppies have a good day every day. Nala likes tennis balls and loves to retrieve a ball. I just can’t figure out what kind of owner would teach her to sit for treats, play with a tennis ball but then lock her in a shed for over a week without food or water to punish her for getting pregnant. There’s got to be a piece missing in this story. I so wish she could talk!
She is still nursing these guys – the rescue wants to keep her nursing a couple times a day for another week when they will be 6 weeks old.
Can’t you hear her saying “Get these guys off of me!”
