Notice how it's accessorized with brown & pink floral leggings and a sky blue headband. ;-)
And here is Cameron, sheltie testing a quilt layout. If you can't sew, you can still lay quilt blocks out on the floor and move them along. My dad had to help me pick up everything when I was done playing layouts, and by then Cameron (his sheltie) had been replaced with Declan (my sheltie) on the quilt pieces. This is a twin sized one, so the backing and batting are pretty big. We picked up one end and started walking forward to fold it in half. Declan stood his ground on the nice comfy spot he'd found to sit- we had to pick him off the batting to continue folding, then he walked right back on! Silly dog.
Here are some of the squares that I did early in the week. They're mostly using Sew Mama Sew's Amy Karol fat quarter pack. I really liked the colors in that set! So different from the shades I usually gravitate towards.
On the recovery front, I have a huge purple bruise on the back of my hand & I'm pretty run down, but otherwise OK. My mom got out her naturalist books last night and we looked through them & I forced myself to look at the photos of the snakes. Ewww. We figured out what it was, though- it was definitely a yellow rat snake. I actually got shivers up my spine when I saw the picture, because it was exactly the snake. They're non poisonous, obviously, but agressive biters, which makes sense because it really got me. Supposedly they're not uncommon as pets so we wonder if it was an escaped or released pet. Good to know that it really wasn't a ribbon snake, because we have them all over and although they freak me out, I always think of them as essentially harmless.
One more picture- here is Tom playing on his slide. Cutest little boy ever!!!
