Rooster Party

Here are my roosters.....
I can't wait to see everyone else's!

Got this stuff in the mail this week (I love online shopping!)

..... a great magazine and more fabric for my stash.

I've been working on these applique blocks this weekend. The blocks belong to one of my many UFOs. Maybe I'll stay motivated to complete the quilt this time around ... hmmm ... doubt it - too many distractions and new ideas.

The pattern is "Romance in Bloom" by Verna Mosquera
(The Vintage Spool).

Took this picture of Ted and Sydney on Saturday morning - sharing a nap on the back of the chair. I've never seen them snuggled together end-to-end like this.

Ted (and me) in my sewing room at 6:00 am this morning.

I completed this quilt (a pattern called "Tiger Lily" published in Quilt Sampler 2001) a very long time ago...but I just now finished putting on the binding. It always take me such a long time to get around to sewing the bindings on my quilts.

Its been raining here for most of the month of July and now into August.

Even this little chipmunk has a raindrop on his head. But he's got bigger worries I think...he must be wondering if Sydney can find a way out through the patio door.
