What I'm still working on!

Puppy watch is slowing me down somewhat!  

It may just be a ball to you - but it is lots of fun for me!

And for some reason there seems to be a lot more cleaning and tidying up to do!??

I am not getting such long sessions with my Bernina and I guess she is quite relieved at that!  Gives her time to cool off inbetween sessions as the strip piecing in the Wedding Quilt means a lot of quick stitching.  

Last time you looked I had done the 48 blocks for the baby quilt in the book.  I have made a few more blocks - I am now up to 63!  Here it is...



Ok it doesn't look that much different to the earlier photo I have to agree, apart from the different background!





I am going to look again after 17 more blocks to see if it will be big enough.  If not I may add a plain border...... or carry on piecing!

I will try and give you another project to look at next time - like all the bee blocks I'm behind on!

  4. Puppy watch is worse than baby watch because at least babies that age aren't getting into anything yet!

  11. Your pup makes my heart flutter. I'd skip sewing to play with him too!
    Your quilt is really just lovely. I love how it's part insanity, but you can still see a definite pattern. Really a great choice.

  13. As long as the puppy doesn't develop a textile fetish as one of ours did - chewed rugs, chewed needlepoint cushion, chewed knitting needles (well, textile-related)! An amazing quilt too - stunning.

  14. I know all about the distractions a puppy can bring....and the chewing! Lets hope yours stays content with the ball ;-)
    I have been told it gets a lot easier at 3, they said similar about the kids and I disagree, it just gets different lol!

  16. What a GORGEOUS puppy & quilt Nicky. Ah yes I remember the puppy stage well. We had 2 at once for a while and it was a good introduction to having children for us because oh my the mess they made of my carpet & furniture LOL
    Fun though.
