almost everything in 2's

 Mom was down this weekend past and we did a lot together.

We pieced another sampler from the blocks she made last year from Rose Cottage Quilt shop They have just celebrated 10yrs in Amherstberg.  It changed hands and the new owner has Celebrated 2 years this coming weekend.

Mom picked these fabrics for her kit. How do you like our mitering job! honestly we were ment to make this quilt
 This was the center and as you can see we were not cutting off any points. The layout was supplied with the finishing of the quilt.

Mom was short on one of her fabrics and low and behold we had to go to the "Stash". Mom was surprised I had a batik, I am not a batik fan at all, but I do have one shelf with different batiks for this purpose. Mom loves Batiks.
 So this is the Finished quilt! As you can see we are both looking very trimmed with the hair cuts. I went to a new hairstylist a couple of months ago and she cut my hair the way I asked. Mom loved it so much that she got the same thing. We were just all over Toronto showing our new Doo's

 Yes I am still in my pj's this is morning and really I love being in my jammies. Don't look there though look what is in my right arm! We have a new Chi!! We have had her for a week and she is just an ANGEL.
Holly is 10yrs old and needed a loving home her mommy passed on August 17 and my she was my neighbour's friend. Thing is my neighbour has a big dog and Holly is afraid. My neighbout thought of us and asked we said yes without hesitation. She will be my husbands and they have bonded very well.
As you can see she is as friendly as can be. As you can also see I am holding my precious Buddy. Both of the puppies respect each other and she has no fear of him, Buddy is 10 lbs ( I know a porker but we are working on that) and Holly is 5.5 fearless.

We are a very happy household.

Mom left on Monday happy about the finish but not feeling so hot. I also caught a dandy of a cold and she has now got the symptoms of one starting.
Well thanks for visiting it has been a very very busy summer for us! but we have also had the most perfect summer weather! I hope you have had a great summer and that you are like me and can't wait till quilting weather starts!

Check out Needle and Thread on the sidebar I am linking up with other Canadian Fibre artists!


  1. Love that quilt! It will be gorgeous when quilted! Your batik fabric finishes it off beautifully. Your chi family is will be good for Buddy not to be an only child!

  2. Great pictures and what fun to do a project together. I think that is one lucky little dog.
    Hope the colds are over and you are enjoying the coming fall. It seems a very long way off here.

  3. I meant to share with you that it was discovered that a woman had 24 chihuahaus in her home (somewhere in central Florida). She was not properly caring for the dogs or her children. The children and dogs were removed from the home. I don't know all the story but do know that the dogs are going to be up for adoption. I thought of you when I read the newspaper story.

  4. Congrats on the new family member! Looks like she fits right in.
