Halloween took center stage this week, with lots more decorations in the 'hood to enjoy
|this is what happens when you give up sugar|
|Let your freak flag fly!|
|even scarier at night|
Now About quilting,
the post with better pics of this Halloween quilt (36" X 36" ) is HERE !
I like working in my new space even though it's not set up yet...
I enjoyed finding this site listing some of the most viewed quilting blogs... gave me some new ideas to see during life's quieter moments
I love this mix of fruit and nuts we found at Sams club
I liked finding my Fall decorations in the basement,
Did those of you who put up your Christmas decorations and lights the week before Halloween hear me?
|this house has all it's garlands and lights up already|
What's in the candy dish you ask? tootsie pops and truffles!
What is playing in the studio you wonder? Swing music from the 40's on xfinity!
What books did I just check out one might enjoy...
I liked the bright flowers still blooming despite our latest 3" of snow night before halloween, doesn't the snow look like ghosts as it melts?
My good friend Sonja in Hawaii sent me a surprise gift of her hand painted fabrics... I am already playing with them!
she included some heavenly smelling soap from gardenias! It's so good to have friends even if they are far away in body, they are close at heart!
Hi Y'all, this week Mama invented a game for us to play. It's not all that much fun and involves something called "stay with Mama!" but every time I don't pull on the leash and walk next to Mama, she gives me a tasty treat (or sometimes kibble but you never know)
I'm getting really good at it but sometimes... you just gotta PULL!
I am only doing it for her!!!
When I pull I grind down my toenails so Mama won't have to touch my toes with that grinder
I only pull to make sure they are on the leash, not lost or something... and now they drop the leash, just like that when I pull, and then I have to check back to make sure they are there, and keep a VERY close eye on them, and walk VERY close to them so they don't get in trouble.
But sometimes I pull on the leash to get a bunny, again for them. I'm just trying to feed the pack, but they do not get it!
Sometimes if I pull, which I don't but might just sometimes, it's to lie down in shade because it's hot here in high country when the sun is baking your black fur coat.
Now, try to understand this... if you are out walking at night, and you run into a sleek black lab who is also one and a half years old, and who's name is Onyx, and who wants to play the same games as you, then take advantage and let the peeps know you. Will. Play.
You gotta take your moment to play even if it's dark and both of you are black and the night is dark
that's about it for this week, I'll give you more of my Poodle Ponderings Next week
