What to do, What to do!....

You know life is good, when your biggest dilemma is what to do with this beautiful stack of Wiscasset Jelly Rolls from Moda! I've gotta tell you, it feels so good to sit and sew. I love the shades of the reds, tans, creams and blues in this collection. They are so traditional, with several paisleys (my favorite) some dots (my favourite too), and florals of varying scale. I was just thinking, I've been quilting for a very long time now (my first quilt was at 13 yrs old) and I have to admit that I have never pieced a whole log cabin quilt..... a block or two but that doesn't really count does it? This stack just might make a pretty log cabin quilt for my antique bed. You'll have to check back and see what I decide to do. If you have any suggestions, leave me a comment....
(It looks like I might not get much sewing done tonight, I've had too much fun blogging!)

Many of you have been curious about how Kadie is doing.... I have included some of my most recent photos of her. She's 8 months old now and weighed in at 58.6 lbs at the vet yesterday. We were there for the heart worm and flea thing ($210 later aghhhh). She is a very special puppy, I must say. She sure keeps us entertained.....

One of her favourite things is MUD! This photo is nothing, compared to some days. She permanently has a rim of mud on her nose 'cause its a dig and sniff thing. We have a whole new landscape in the back yard, with mountains and mainly gullies that we never had before! She's creative, what can I say?
She likes to cuddle with Emily too, but usually prefers to play when you want to sleep....just like any kid!

Last night, we had quite the downpour. It was teaming rain, along with thunder and lightening.... Where did she want to be??? Outside! She usually enjoys lying on the back step, taking in the world but last night, it came with a drink, delivered from the skys! She sat there sopping wet, with her mouth wide open, catching as many raindrops as she could! What a dog!.... Who wouldn't love her? I know I sure do.
