Sunshine and Basting!

Here is Cooper protecting Mickey from the vacuum...Mickey hates the vacuum! Lots of sun yesterday, but too chilly for me. I skipped the hike and let Hubby do it.

I finished pin basting Bliss! Let the quilting begin! This is one of my favorite sections - love these fabrics!

For the backing, I used a Phillip Jacobs shell print that I've had in my stash for years. Who knows, this may go under the machine today...

I also spent a bit of time selecting yo-yo's for the remaining winding ways blocks - I had plenty to choose from. The yo-yo's ALL got stitched down last night.

And then I finished stitching together a Bee's Knees star point. A lovely day!

Friday I spotted two police cars in our neighborhood as I left for the grocery store. Turns out some numbskull (an infrastructure construction worker) decided to shoot at an 8 point deer just off the golf course. I hope they caught him! We love our deer and no hunting is allowing on the thousands of acres that make up our neighborhood. As far as we know, the deer survived. I'm not against deer hunting, but it needs to be done LEGALLY! And not in our neighborhood...

So I'm thinking I may begin quilting Bliss this afternoon. Then I can continue on into Monday and get a nice bit done. I have a plan in my mind for the design...let's give it a go!

Have a nice day!


  1. Love your Bliss. It is gorgeous. We live in a gated community in the woods in East Texas with lots of deer and absolutely no hunting. I understand your point of view as my SIL and grandson are both deer hunters.

  2. I don't want to hear sad story if Bambi was 'attacked'! Hate sad stories. I have my friend hooked on Doc Martin! She binged yesterday and now ahead of me! She loves it! HA
