Sunday Ramblings

My bear paw blocks are complete. Thank you to everyone who commented on my post yesterday asking for advice on what sashing fabric to use. I had to perform some minor surgery as three paws (top of the picture) had gotten caught in bear traps and needed to have their "wounds" attended to. The wounds have all healed and are ready for the next step.

This gives a new meaning to the Dyson Animal vacuum cleaner. Several months ago hubby was vacuuming up the dog hair (mostly Sonny's since he forever is shedding) and the boys are curious about the vacuum. Well one must have jumped up on the couch and hubby decided to get some hair before it fell on the floor. Here Sonny is today getting "vacuumed". Both boys had just gotten a pedicure (nails cut and paws trimmed) which required the vacuum to clean up the mess.

I also forgot to post this last week. I have a little brag. Last Sonday, Sonny's son Harley became a champion at the Milwaukee dog show. This is the first of Sonny's "children" to become a champion. Harley's sister, Raven, is almost finished too...just needs five single points yet.

Friday I received the software for my Excel class. Yesterday I loaded it on the laptop so I'm ready for class to start a week from tomorrow!!!

Remember how excited I was that the snow/ice was melting the other day?!?! Well guess what? So far today we've had rain, snow and now sleet. Hubby just said we could get 4-8 inches of snow. Ugh! Mother Nature knock it off already....bring out the sun and 40-50 degree weather!

Congratulations about the baby's achievements!

And I love the bear paw quilt colors you went with. The black backgrounds really make it pop and the different colored toes is super.

Yup, like the teal!! My bear paws are limping along. Too many things to get done lately. But it's nasty cold out, so inside sewing is a good place to be!
