At long last, blogger will let me post some photos.

Here is a shot of the "chicken wall" Big and I built 2 weekends ago. Neither Big or I suffered any emotional or physical injures! Now the chickens have to stay behind the wall at night. It will make Chicken Poop Sundays much easier.

These are the squares that I made for a Halloween swap I am involved in. I was supposed to mail them a couple days ago. Apparently my father's favorite statement, "Punctuality is a trait of leadership," doesn't work when making quilt squares.

I have been working on this table runner for a few weeks. It is almost finished. I just have to sew in the ends and tack the pieces together. I hope to finish it in the next couple days.

I love seeing the pet photos you all post, so I thought I would post one myself. This is my sweet little puppy, Daisy. She goes with me everywhere. She gets cold easily, so I am always covering her with something. This time it happened to be a sweatshirt I had on. She is laying on a sofa I have in my sewing room, it is an antique and needs to be reupholstered.

I will post more tomorrow, it is getting late and my eyes are crossing!

Pin It Now!

Your chicken wall looks like it will do the job. Safer for the chickens being cooped up at night too.

Wonderful blocks!

Your table runner is so delicate. I tried crocheting with thread once. Ahem. I don't know how anyone manages it, so I'm in awe.

Daisy is just adorable!
