One Spoiled Doggie!

My Liesie loves to be tucked in. Every night between 7:15 and 7:30 she gets up on the sofa next to me and lays down on her blankie, waiting to be wrapped up, burrito style. Here she is an hour into her slumber. When it is time to bed for the night she either climbs under our covers or goes to her own bed, where she waits for me to tuck her in with her pink blankie. She will not lay her head down until she is sufficiently tucked in.

I still believe that spoiled though she is, that I get far more out of the deal.

Anyway, it was a great day. I got a little bit of stitching done in my car at lunch. It was a lovely sunny day, a break between last weekend's rainstorm and this weekend's storms. I got quite a few stitches put in. It is quite nice to stitch at lunch. It is very peaceful. It distracts me from accounting so I go back refreshed in the afternoon. I was able to get some of the red roses next to the lady done, which finally breaks up all that green a bit. I still feel a bit anxious about starting the border, but am thinking I would like to forge ahead as much as possible this weekend and then start the border next week.

I am planning on working on the craft room this weekend. My baby girl is coming over on Monday to learn how to use her sewing machine, so I really want to be in there with a clear floor and desk. Think good thoughts for me...I am thinking the best way to learn how to sew is by learning a simple quilt block. I shall have to page through my quilting books to see if there is an easy project. I am excited about and think it will be really fun!

What a cute a comfy pup dog!

Can you teach me to sew too? I got a machine several years ago and still have not learned...
