MIA again!

Sorry if I was missing in action for awhile - when I am not posting it is a sure sign that life has gotten chaotic again! In this case DH and I went to the Jersey shore - or "down the shore" as its known in Jersey - to Wildwood specifically - for the Fireman's Convention. We were gone for 6 days and had a great time and great weather!

On the way home we picked up a new member of the family. This is Dooley. We adopted him from a rescue shelter. He is 2 years old. This isn't the greatest picture but he doesn't hold still for long! It's been a busy week of trying to catch up a work during the day and dog supervising in the evening- our existing dog Max has had some issues adjusting to not being the only dog in the house. They still aren't the best of friends yet but they are getting along much better.

In the meantime, I have lots more to post about - PIF gifts, my bag swap - but I'll save those for tomorrow!

Have a pieceful day!

Productive Weekend!

Yesterday we were predicted to have rain from Tropical Storm Hanna and rain we got! It poured most of the day. We were lucky and did not lose power. I planned to quilt all day and with the exception of a nap I did just that. I finished my bag for Linda's bag swap. I also made another little surprise to go with the bag - and then proceeded to make 7 more for myself, a friend, my pay it forward gifts and a few others.... I won't post a picture until they are delivered so as not to spoil the surprise. I will post a picture of my bag though since my partner won't know its for her.

I also made some flip flop placemats for DS's girlfriend to go with the flip flop quilt I made her last year. Only problem is I found out that she doesn't have a kitchen or dining room table in her new apartment at college. Oh well, I guess she'll have to use them on the breakfast bar!

(Boy did this picture turn out bad!!! They really are nicer in person!) Unfortunately its back to work tomorrow so my quilting productivity is over for now.

Have a pieceful day!
