Bundling Board - Again


I'm working on the third Bundling Board block, upper right. I've got three of the leaves needle-turned, but the colors were bothering me. I was going to change out the piece under the star because I thought it was blending in too much with the background, but it doesn't seem to be so bad in this picture. I think I'm just going to finish it as is. In the spirit of my Dad's, "Hey, we're not building a piano here."

It was so beautiful outside yesterday, and I'm hoping for more of the same today. The rains two days ago cleared out the usual smog and we had a clear view of our ash-covered mountains. I was hoping some snow would be up there, but nada! We had hardly any snow on the mountaintops last year either. In prior years they were just gorgeous - a nice contrast to our warm temps below.

My boss brought his new black lab puppy to the office yesterday. Scooter is 8.5 weeks old, and is already showing promising field trial potential. Such a cutie. He wasn't so much a biter as a lot of puppies are, and he was real content to snuggle in my arms and give me puppy kisses!

I've been listening to the tales of the snow shoveling and seeing pictures of really deep snowfalls from my online quilting group. I'm not so sure I'd want to shovel snow, but for one winter I'd like to live in a place that has snow. Someday.

Gratitudes:

~ Beautiful poppies blooming everywhere
~ Breakfast food last night. Yummy!
~ Committed to cutting the blasted quilt this week. No excuses!

don't you just love puppy breath? What did Daisy think about the "intruder smell" when you got home?
