What I've been up to...

A couple things:
Because it might seem hard for some of you to believe our 'puppy' is as huge as he is, let me take you on a little photo journey, since we got him three months ago.
                                                       Week one, sleeping on Jamaica.

                                                 End of July, sleeping by Jamaica.

                                     Yesterday, sleeping on Jamaica (with SK sleeping on him! Ok, from this angle, Maica looks bigger than she really is...)

Secondly:
It's been a long time since I posted pictures of my quilting projects. There wasn't a lot of time for quilting this summer but I've been making up for it in the last few weeks. So here are the quilt tops I've been accumulating. Now if I can only get the energy up to do the actual quilting, which is always the most laborious part.


Yes, that's Jamaica sitting in the middle of my quilts. A quilt top is like a magnet to Maica; she comes running from wherever she's been sleeping to plop right down like she owns the place.
J and I decided, when our 'Big Lug' Jackson died, that I'd make a quilt  remembering him. This is the quilt I made in his honor. I'm looking mighty fine today, squinting into the sun, huh?


This is a quilt towel I made for SK, who has sensory problems with towels. She's been loving that she can touch a quilt rather than that 'nasty' terry cloth.

Another quilt-towel, which I've loved using all summer.  I'm telling you, I'm going to make a whole lot of these by next summer.




This is a table runner I made for Beve's brother and his Finnish wife., who likes blue,  burgundy and  green.
The other quilts have no designated recipient yet, but I've got time. And plenty more fabric...and I'm sure that once the rain begins to fall, I'll be more more motivated. I've made over eighty quilts since I began quilting three-ish years ago. So 100 is in sight. And I'm looking forward to it. Maybe I'll trying posting all of them at once (if I can get one of my more techno-smart kids to help me!).

Until then, happy Monday.
