Sorry for the fuzziness, these were taken with my cell phone.

June 28, 2009 - A finish!

I am on a dial up connection, so no photo for now.

I have finished the navy and ecru Irish Chain quilt. I used Judy Laquidara's technique of sewing the binding completely by machine. It worked great and saved lots of time!

I have also started a rail fence type quilt with 7 jelly roll strips per block. I am using April Cornell's Nostalgia line. It's been great to have uninterrupted time to sew. : )

Phoebe had 11 puppies. They are about 2 1/2 weeks old. We can go visit when they are 4 weeks. We are looking forward to having her back with us after the puppies go to their new homes.

June 2, 2009 - Bleep

This is Bleep. She came with the name. She is our loaner dog while Phoebe is on maternity leave and living with the breeder till her pups find homes. Phoebe is due to deliver June 9.

Bleep holds court on the couch, or sometimes the chair. She is no trouble at all, but pretty terrified of anything off the couch. We are happy to give her some love and we hope she loosens up a bit.
