I received a jelly roll package at a recent retreat... and I have been fascinated with them. 40 some 2 1/2 inch strips - what to do, what to do. Now, mind you , I have TONS of UFO's to finish (some not even listed) so I really should have just put the jelly roll quilt on the list and moved on.... but I really, really love the fabrics and wanted to make something with them. So, I decided to make a braid quilt - and I am enjoying the results. These are the first two rows - looks like I will have 6 more rows, plus I have decided to do two rows with a cream color on one side - then sew these two together to form a cream insert down the middle of the quilt - perhaps a good place to add some wool applique???? or machine applique.... well, as a quilting distraction it worked out nicely. I found the pattern for the braid at Quiltville. It was being used as a border, but I thought a whole quilt would look great!

Multi-tasking arises out of distraction itself.

There is nothing so easy to learn as experience and nothing so hard to apply.

got an enormous paper cut on one of his little toes when he "tore" at an envelope that I had sitting on the floor..... BUT.... then the little paper cut turned into a torn toe nail after he caught it in the carpet!!!! .... THEN the toe nail had to be removed..... poor little guy..... The picture on the left is when he just was "limping" around with the little paper cut..... the pic on the right is after the "surgery" to remove the toe nail. Of course, we have to ensure he doesn't get infection.... so he pretty much has to stay in the house..... The bandage is off now.... and it looks pretty ugly... but so far so good......
Thought for the Day
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.

I also completed a little "doggie" blanket for a good friend of mine, Kate, who is going to be the mom of a new puppy in about a week - Pandora is a miniature Schnauzer. Hopefully she likes her new little blankee!!

There was also a challenge held - Twas the Night before Christmas... there were several wonderful entries.
The weekend started off a little rainy - then the sun came out. This little guy decided that he would have a snooze in the rain on one of the afternoons!! - He is quite a beautiful dog with the most amazing eyes.....
