SIgns of Spring, Vet Visits & Spending the Night in a Quilt Shop

Today on the way home from work I saw two signs of spring. #1 was a guy on a motorcycle - on February 26 in Michigan!!! And the other was a Mustang convertible with it's top down in a car dealer lot. I don't think we're done with snow yet - but 45 felt really nice.

On a different note, Shorty, the new Mi Ki in the house (he came on 2/10) had his first visit to the vet to get checked out. Bobbin, his 1/2 brother, came along too. He shook a lot, but Bobbin, who gets groomed there &… Continue

FInally got some shots of the newest addition to the household - Shorty, a 5 month old Mi Ki - he has the same dad as Bobbin but different mom. Bobbin is a year old & I thought he'd like a playmate.

I grew up in the country & we… Continue

Bright :& Fun Quilt

Out of all the pictures I've posted, #10 & 11 have gotten the most comments - the story behind this quilt is I saw a sample hanging in a quilt shop & asked to buy the pattern. The shop had sold out of the patterns & ordered more. I bought one when they came in and it was then that I realized this was really just a hashed together pattern. I called the "designer" & found out she was not really the designer. She was a woman who saw the quilt (an original design) at a quilt show,… Continue
