November 28, 2008 - He was a wonderful companion

Our sweet puppy dog passed away suddenly on Thanksgiving. We had no idea there was anything wrong. He probably had a form of liver cancer common in golden retrievers. He was nearly 9, we thought we'd have a couple more years.

We will miss him terribly.

November 15, 2008 - My favorite of the three arrangements

It's a bit hard to tell in the photo but this time I turned every other block 180 degrees. This way the same red fabric makes diagonal rows. I think this is the one I will go with.

November 14, 2008 - The blocks are finished!

I finished the last mystery quilt blocks late this afternoon. I haven't decided which layout I prefer, all the Prairie Paisley reds in the upper left hand corner, or rotating the second and third blocks in each row.

Regardless, I plan to add off-white sashing and colored cornerstones.

November 13, 2008 - The Mystery Quilt

I am happy to report I have completed 2 of the 12 blocks for the Mystery Quilt. As hard as I have tried to sew the past 3 days, I have just been too busy and too tired. Looks like I am home most of the day tomorrow so maybe I can make some good progress.

I plan to set the blocks with off-white sashing, and cornerstones of blue, red and green. Each block has the same 4 colors shown, but different fabrics.

November 8, 2008 - We're having a wedding!

My son and his girlfriend got engaged last night! Wow, I don't feel old enough to be mother of the groom. We are tickled pink and so happy to welcome a new member into the family : - )
