And the second...
My niece and I have come to a compromise on her camouflage quilt. Here it is:
It was the only way I could make it work since she also wanted leopard and Nascar fabric included. Yes, my friends, my sister has raised a redneck. Apparently, I do "do ugly". The things you do for those you love. Never in a million years did I think I would EVER utter these words: "Yes, can I have a half yard of the mossy oak camouflage please?". Yikes!

This one's a teensy bit closer to be made into a quilt top. No, I don't have backing for it but I do have the binding made....

Did ya'll know there's different TYPES of camouflage? Seriously. I keep telling her I don't do ugly but she's not listening.

I had left overs from each strip and made a modified coin quilt. I added a little Kona white around each of the coin strips and then sashed with Bahama Blue also by Kona. I think the blue really make the strips pop. I like this "leftovers" quilt just as much as the other one. This coin quilt top measures 43"x55".
Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some catching up to do...

To the delight of fellow beach goers at sunset today, my dog Max exhibited his most excellent boogie boarding skills. Max came to our rescue group very overweight. His owners were elderly and surrendered him due to illness. His previous life was pretty sedentary, no walks and lots of food. He must have thought he arrived in hell when he came to my house. I put him on a diet and we took daily walks. Max does not enjoy these walks. When it got warmer, I started taking him to the beach and letting him swim in. He does not enjoy swimming. Max does not enjoy any form of exercise. When I first put him on the boogie board, he didn't really like it until he realized he could ride the waves in and not have to swim in. He now loves the boogie board. To say that Max was the most photographed dog/person at the beach today would be an understatement. There were so many people taking his picture today, you would have thought it was Paris Hilton out there boogie boarding and not a fat, overweight dachshund.
I took a few videos today but most were grainy. This is the best one. For your viewing pleasure:
Michelle has got me hooked on this Flickr swap group. I've got pink HR VW vans coming my way. Yippee!!

Here it is... Allison sent out fabrics from the Hello Betty line which I really like.
I think I may join my crazy friend Stephanie and make a whole quilt with this block.
By the way, remember my beautiful sampler quilt top from Jane's Rainbow block swap? She's organized another swap and this time it's Halloween themed. She's had great response for it and has opened up a fourth section so go take a look. You know you wanna join...
