I am not sure about you but I do not do a lot of quilting over the summer.
Family and fun come to the forefront.
But
I have a project list I made in the Spring for myself and I thought I would post the projects one at a time to show you what I have been up to over the last few months.

Here is the list....

My Nieces High School Graduation Quilt

She choose the fabrics.
I laid them out to see which layout I liked best, then made a Rail Fence Quilt.




Some sad news on Memorial Day we lost our Bulldog Sophie. She was 7 years old and it happened in a 12 hour period. She did not suffer. She was having a hard time breathing. We took her in and her soft pallet was swollen, one lung collapsed, and her esophagus was no longer attached. There was nothing they could do, it was very hard on our college daughter as that was her dog.



It took our girl Charley a while to realize Sophie was not coming back, but now getting bigger and fills our home with joy. 



She loves to swim, even in the kiddie pool!



I am going to leave you with this as I know it applies to so many of us!



I will be back with more show and tell projects.
Happy Sewing!

  2. Hi! Good to see and read your post today. Loosing a pet is always hard no matter how old they are. That's an impressive list. No wonder you don't post often...you've been extremely busy, that's for sure. Take care.

  3. I know you are a family Summer gal, but what an impressive list! Sorry for your loss, our pets are such a part of our family.

  4. Good to see your post in this morning's mail, but sorry you have lost a canine member of your family. Since they are members of our family, we grieve for them, but Charley looks as though she is more than capable of taking up the slack Sophie has left in your lives.
    I would like to be slowing down in the sewing department, but our family has other ideas. We have had so many birthdays, new great grandchildren, christenings, bridal and baby showers and a wedding next month. Hopefully I will catch a breather before the Christmas sewing begins.

  7. Hi Janie! I don't know how you got anything done on that list by not doing a lot of quilting in the summer. I love a long list with a lot of cross offs. They make Help me see that I've accomplished more than I "feel" like I've accomplished. Your neice's quilt looks wonderful. I am so sorry for your loss of Sophie. It is so difficult loosing adoring pets. I love Charley and her kiddie pool! Hey, whatever it takes, man, to get the job done. LoL
