Tidbits

First, here's a picture of Chupa, for her fans. As you can see, she finally had the nerve to say "Hello" to me. Maybe it's because every time I visit her, I clean her water dish, whether it needs it or not. And I haven't raised my hand or voice to her, even though I carry scary things like brooms and shovels. :)

I'd been looking for this purse pattern all last week. I finally found it when I wasn't looking for it. *sigh* It's made from fabrics purchased by my daughter on Etsy. The fabrics were made on Spoonflower, by the seller, I wish I could remember her name. Anyway, this is absolutely, without doubt, a one-of-a-kind bag. Didn't it turn out cute?

I had a free hour or so, and I haven't wanted to start anything big. This year's County Fair has a plane theme. It just so happens that I had the center of this quilt in my UFO box. Yesterday I added the large corner triangles and borders.

I've recently taken in two quilts-for-hire. If I'm going to go to the effort of putting up the basting tables, I may as well make good use of them. Who knows? I may actually cross a UFO off my list this year. Goals are good. This one was started in...1991, if I'm not mistaken...

Aw-w-w-w-w-w-...Chupa is a dear, dear dog. It is so neat that she is coming around to know you and accept you. I'd get friendly too if you cleaned my water dish every day!

You are so gifted and talented. Thank you for sharing you quilts and your dog.

Blessings,

Diana..

Dogs can sense good people and Chupa knows you're good.

Feels good to get some ufo's off the list, doesn't it?
