Where do I start???

Okay, so I went from posting every day (or just about) to not having posted in almost a month! Since we added Dooley Dog (as we've come to refer to him) to our family, my evenings have been crazy. He is 2 years old but he is very puppy-ish. Having lived in a kennel for many many months he is learning manners and is very hyper and happy to have a family. All this means he needs CONSTANT supervision! Additionally, he and our existing dog, Max, are, how shall I say it? they are still in the early stages of their friendship. We have some jealousy issues we are working on. Here they are in one of their better moments (the best actually).

Add to that that work has gotten absolutely crazy and its no wonder I haven't gotten around to posting.

So, I think I posted a picture of the bag I sent to my swap partner in Linda's bag swap but I don't think I ever posted a pic of the one I received. Melinda sent me this GREAT bag and lots of other goodies too. Included in the package was a steno pad cover - which was perfect for me because I use steno pads ALL THE TIME! There was also a seam ripper (always comes in handy) and a pack of fat quarters.

The bag is made from sandcastle fabric and is a nice big size, perfect for all kinds of things, the least of which will be vendor purchases at quilt shows!

Well, I have lots more to post but I don't want to make this too long so I will continue in another post - lots to share - a few projects finished, a class on precision piecing with Sally Collins and more!

Till next time,

Have a pieceful day!

I did think you had gone quiet! Oh dear, the dogs sound difficult, but I hope it will settle soon.
Great bag! This was a superb swap again thanks to Linda!

What a beautiful bag! Pets can be a challenge at times that is for sure!

Sounds like you're having fun with the dogs! Very cute new bag -- I LOVE sandcastle fabric!

I can relate to the constant supervision!

Now that Chesty can roam around on his own again - I'll have to go back to making sure all the doors are shut and that everything is out of his reach - luckily he's short! Even with that, he has to be in the crate when no one is home. I've always been impressed with dogs that can be left on their own and don't get into trouble but at 7 years old - I don't expect Chesty to ever get there.
