    Sharon, Mr. Peach is wonderful. Do you actually call him MR?

    Lara, what a sweet photo. Now Piper isn't looking quite so much like Daisy. Her ears stand up. But what a sweetie she is!

    Bertie, that is hilarious! Is Rusty a girl?

    Feeney, our Puggle, adopted a rescued pigeon named Baldy who had no feathers on his head, poor thing. He'd sniff and lick poor Baldy and would get little pecks in return. One day Baldy flew off. (Or got eaten by something)

    Yes, Rusty, the Irish Setter, was a girl. We had her 12 years. Given to us by a college professor who had no time for her and had to board her a lot when he traveled. Came into my husband's gas station one day with the dog and asked if he knew anyone who wanted a dog? Our 8 yr old son was there and my husband probably told the professor 'yes' right away but first he had to ask his wife. Unhuh. Lots of good memories of Rusty though. I cried for two days after she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

    Oh ho exciting. I'm still working on your little quilt. I love in the midwest and the storms have taken their toll on everyone. I'm very luck to have no damage to my home but so many friend have damage and lots of trees down that need to cleared out. Don't post a picture because I just love surprises.

    My little firecracker is ready to be bound and packaged off to my partner. Today is so HOT, our first day of stinky humidity. The only thing to do is stay inside or get in water!

    Bertie, Love your story about Rusty.

    Yep, the Peach is called Mr. Peach, the Peach, Peacher, Peacharoo, etc.,etc. He comes when he wants something to eat otherwise he pays little attention unless a quilt is spread out. When that happens he is on it, in it or under it and at that point what I call him is not fit to print!!!

    You left me speechless. I got it yesterday, can't wait to post to charm the group LOL. The pictorial fabric is also new to me, don't remember seeing anything like that during my buying spree. And love ALL the goodies.

    Oooooh " little firecracker" quilt! Can't wait to see what you came up with jillnjo!
    Bertie you are amazing, can't wait to see what you made for Mamaskeeto! Your story about Rusty is so sweet.
    We're getting to a really fun part when we start getting to see the quilts that come in!

    Oh no Krystyna, Piper doesn't look like Daisy much at all. Pip is the one who is Daisy's long lost sister. We have three little brown terriers: Pip, Penny, and Piper. I'll post a pic so you can see the three together. And we also often have Olive our granddoggy too, like every day this week. That's her in the bandana. They are all really great dogs and love each other. I am a little dog crazy...LOL

    Sharon, our Penny the silky terrier likes to get in quilts too. Does Mr. Peach also show too much enthusiasm when you try to make the bed? A cat in the sheets is always so funny. And Quilts seem to attract pets like magnets. Here Penny is in a quilt I was trying to bind.

    Our son Sam hit a deer on the thruway last night. He is okay, thank God! The deer is not. His car is not, but it might be repairable. We're just really thanking God that Sam is fine! He said this was a bit of an awakening....he's not as infallible as he sometimes thinks. Caught a glimpse of his mortality.

    BuzzinBumble, I made a RWB for SistahDebbra; not Mamaskeeto. Penny looks like she's saying "you really want me to move?" Beautiful quilt by the way! I think it is Morettl (forgive me if I spelled that wrong) who collects roosters? The Fons and Porter quilt site has a kit that has Chanticleers on it for 50% off. It's not a real big quilt but pretty neat if you want to check it out. I have more kits in this house than I'll ever get made. I am a sucker for a sale and so I bought a few! Today I bought a Lil Twister ruler and made a small sized quilt that I will probably send to the dear lady who makes quilts for very sick kids, Vickey Stamps. (I sent two already but I think one of them may have stayed in AL which was ok with me) She said she needs 24-28" square or thereabouts and this one will be just about that size once I add borders. Looking forward to seeing everyone's RWB quilts for June!

    BuzzinBumble, Olive seems to be saying "how come they get to sit on the couch and I have to stay outside?" She looks to be about the same size as the Basenji (mixed mutt whatever) that we have now. He looks like a dingo but has the sweetest face.

    OK, no sneak peeks. But I would like to order In advance no severe weather from July 19th through the 27th driving through Kentucky (Paducah), lengthwise through Illinois, kiddy corner across Wisconsin and up to Lake Vermilion. It's about 19 hours and will be alone, so want light overcast and no rain. And no rain while at the lake. Solar flares will be welcome.

    Lara, have hit only one deer but it was on glare ice and it was pretty scary. The guy in the car with me took it home with him. Swear he aimed at them when he was driving just to get free meat.

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

Size:  8.3 KB Please excuse the redwhite blue picture above. My niece was showing me how to upload pictures again and we accidentally got that one! The lil fella is my great-grandchild, Noah. He said "A cowboy has to match his cowdog!" Here is a picture of his 'cowdog' Millie, lol!

    I am DYING from all these cute photos.

    Lara, the pups are toooooo cute! I want to come over to play with them! Thank God your son is OK. How scary!

    Bertie, Noah is adorable!

    I just love all the pix so much. It has been a rough couple of days around here and I desperately needed the smiles.

    Bertie, Noah is just too cute...
    "A cowboy has to match his cowdog!" What a riot! Wonderful picture! Jackson has a really sweet face - very expressive around his eyebrow area. And don't worry, Olive is at the park in that pic. We don't make her stay outside ...she sleeps with my daughter.

    Krystyna I am sorry the last few days have been rough and hope they get a lot better. We're you able to get all the veils finished?

    Kris: 19 hours driving by yourself - That is one long haul! Make sure you give yourself breaks to get out and stretch and if you get too tired don't push too hard. If you are going through Paducah I bet you plan to take a llloooooonnnggg break there.
    And don't hit any more deer. That would definitely not be an economical source of meat! We're lucky only to have to pay the deductible and most of all very grateful that Sam is okay!

    i am eagerly waiting for the quilt pictures that will be showing up any day now!
    Krystyna - still working on yours. I had a new idea for an addition for it strike me and am waiting for the fabric to get here.

    sistahdebbra what a great little DQ you received from BertieD.

    I'm still working on my little DQ for Krisb and have to say I could have finished the top last night if my machine would have worked with me. It took me an hour to make 1 3 1/3" block and then after messing with my machine it decided it wanted to play nice and got the other 16 blocks make in the next hour. Now to piece the blocks and add the border and then quilt it. Hope to get some quality quilting time in this weekend.

    I found that background fabric in my stash while looking for RWB's. Perfect! Have no earthly idea where it came from. Bottom right corner-Jefferson writing/signing the Declaration of Independence, Lower left corner-Betsy Ross sewing the first flag, Upper left corner- space to be conquered and upper right corner--we did it! Astronaut planting the flag on the moon! And Debbra said she loved eagles so there she has it all! I found a Liberty bell I liked and used that for the label on the back, crack and all, haha. Now July is taking me longer, haha. (What I look like and/or Where I live) Am thinking on it so far.

    Lara I am so happy that your Sam is okay! Our kids never get so old that we stop fearing for their safety! Peach is no help with bed making...He refuses to have any cover over him but he hides under the bed and my feet are TARGETS! I love the pictures of your dogs...your Silkie looks just like our Roxy and Katie...will always miss those little pups!

    Bertie, that quilt is so pretty! I love RED,WHITE & BLUE!!! Makes me cry to hear the Star Spangled Banner...Anna I am still working on the top of yours...It is almost done...just have to put the border on (the border is 184 pieces...still in 1 1/2" squares) I am hoping I will get that done today while I am at my mom's.

    Krystyna I am so sorry you have had some bad days...should have had more than your share by now. I am thinking of you and will get that book off to you in a day or so.

    Rough times with happenings with my mother. She did have a pretty good day yesterday but now she is in bed with the covers over her face. I feel like I am crying all the time.

    I just have the binding left on mine and hope to have it in the mail by next week.
    We finally are having our full 1st day of sun. It has been weeks since the last time the sun was out. The fields out here are just mud puddles.

    Bertie the quilt you made for Deborah really stirs the soul with patriotism - so wonderful! I especially love the eagle.
    Sharon my heart aches for you. It doesn't matter how old you or your Mom are, the process of losing a mother is awful. I hope and pray that she finds peace both here and hereafter.
