No damage to the house but work finished

This is for Beryl, from our Anything Goes DYB. She had no restrictions on our creativity and I stayed with her colors. Just blues and greens,crochet the little flower with three layers all beads and lace.

My dog is now kenneled up when I go to work and she hates it. But today was a short day and I was able to finish this wonderful block I have been working on.

Here we go again

Got home to another big Surprise.My husband has been telling me for the last 12 years to take her back to the dog pound where we got her from.

I hate to put her in the Kennel while we are gone but that's where she will be tomorrow morning.

What a Welcome

I came home to this,what a welcome.

My laundry room, there was a cat cut out where my dog has already removed the brush part. I don`t know how she even fits into this opening, but you can see there is some blood on the floor ,the door and the wood splinters. My dog has no teeth! So how does she do it?

This is what I found inside my laundry room.

One down two to go

This is another part of my new quilt I have to make another one just like it and then I have only two more left,hope to finish this top by tomorrow.

Next panel done

This is the Center Panel of my new quilt. Now I have four more panels left, maybe I can cut some of it tonight .Not sure how my back is holding up.

Back to traditional applique quilts

My first two pieces are done now I have to make my blocks. I have always loved very traditional quilts like Nine patch,Log cabin,Pinwheel and of course applique quilts.

I just needed to do something for myself and instead to finish a UFO, I have started  a machine appliqued very traditional quilt in bright colors.
