A Roseville Update

This someone is sleeping now, so I have a minute (or two) to catch the blog up.  She still is unnamed, but we're getting closer. (I hope).  Since she ignores most commands, a name doesn't seem to be a problem.

In the prior post, I forgot to show the back of the quilts (they are they same on both):

 And--FINALLY--I finished, washed and ironed a panel of the Roseville Album.  I was waiting to finish another block to do them together, but at the rate I am going, decided to make this my "project" for the day (or maybe month?).
And a couple close ups:
I am close to being finished with the bottom panel too, but have a few more pieces to add when/if I can squeeze in a little applique time.  I'm also trying to get a chance to sew some binding on a quilt I need to finish by the end of the month. 
Unfortunately, someone thinks quilts are fun to chew/pull on.  Seems her toys are all boring now.  And since she's up now and exploring and eating every leaf, twig, and worm she can find outside, I've gotta go!
Happy Stitching!

The New Normal

When you have one of these around, not much quilting gets done.  It's hard to turn down a face like this.

Fortunately she still takes a lot of naps, and I've been able to finish the binding on two quilts, and sew a sleeve on each of them. 

The sun and wind didn't cooperate for my photo (and naptime is short), so here's a picture of one of them inside (they are identical).
And I finished one more King George circle (finally!)
You know that feeling when you have eaten too much for dinner and had dessert too?  This is what the dog version of that looks like.  Thank goodness some of that belly is gone today, and her food is being strictly measured.  She apparently knows no limits. (she used to leave food and stop when she was full)
At least for that moment, she slept like a baby.  At 2:00 am, not so much.

Happy quilting--hope you get to sew more than I have!

Can you have too much Red?

Not much quilting being done.  I started a new project this past Saturday:

My favorite Red

She's a sweetie, but keeps me on the move.  So far she is still known as Red.  And you can see that she likes batiks.  (It's an old hair scrunchy I made 20 years ago, but she loves it!) 

So if I'm missing online, you know why.  I have managed to squeeze in a little machine binding--one done, two in process, and one to go.  Maybe photos this weekend?  I can hope.  With Red's help, it will be hard!

Happy quilting!
