Week 24 already. I feel like I am always just tryingto catch up!
This week is comfort. Chloe the Smelly Basset likes to be the center of attention from time to time.
She is not fat by any means, Bassets are built differently though. Long. But her idea of her own self is wide rather than long. She will stick her tail out coming through the door but she wants the door WIDE open!
And she barks at the Roomba. It does seem to bother her a lot. It will circle back toward her every time she moves out of its way. I would swear the thing is sentient. It doesn't do that to the Basset Boyz. Really.
I tell her it is a First World Problem. I won't even talk about her housemates who are currently sleeping on my sofas.
I have been reading up on EcoPrinting using plants from several authors. If you go to Quilting Arts you will see one of the articles that excites me. I contacted the author, which I don't have her name at the moment, and she told me how she makes her iron solution. So I have some of the concoction brewing.
Rusty things and distilled white vinegar. Got it. You know I do!
Here is the progress on the current quilt. Frank seems to love it. He comes in several times a day and rearranges the squares. I need some dark in that bottom corner, so when he does that I can sew it together.
If you can see it, one block consists of 4 squares and two lines that cross.
Eh, not sure if I really like it, but it will be a great quilt.
No borders, just a back. I have not counted anything yet, let's see what I get done this weekend before I have to count it.
