Simply Sophisticated Month 9

I've received so many emails from folks who have done their Month 9 Simply Sophisticated blocks from The Fat Quarter Shop. "Where is the blog post? Here's my picture of the completed blocks. Get with the program, woman!" Well, I made up that last part, but (sigh) if the shoe fits .......



Okay, so mine are not done - again. But THIS weekend I'm going to do this month (and last month) and get all caught up.

So please leave a comment on this post, or email me a picture of your completed blocks to be entered in this month's drawing for the $25 gift certificate from The Fat Quarter Shop! Kimberly, Kevin and Miss Emma have been so kind to us this year. I hope before the BOM ends, that everyone who participated in this BOM will email them to tell them THANK YOU for the monthly prizes! That was extremely generous of The Fat Quarter Shop!

There are a few backing sets left. If you haven't gotten yours, now is the time before they're gone forever!

I can't wait to get the last three blocks in and get this quilt put together!

But just in case there's a small delay in my doing that, it's probably because I'm vacuuming carpet again! Because Little Miss Penny loves to drag in leaves or whatever off the patio and chew it up on the carpet! See all those brown pieces amongst the toys - leaves! It takes a bit of picking up of toys before I can vacuum. If I'm at the computer, she hauls them all in there to me. If I'm in the living room, the toys are drug in there. Puppies!! :)



But I digress .......

Good luck to everyone entered in this month's drawing. The drawing will be held on Sunday, June 28th, around 6:00 p.m. Pacific time. You have a week. Get 'em done!!

That is what puppies are suppose to do! Puppies are pack animals. You are the leader of the pack. She is suppose to be with the leader at all times. This is how she learns. They are learning while they are awake.

And don't you know that the puppy is blogging about the fact that you will not stay in one place so she has to keep moving her toys around and she keep trying to improve the texture of the carpet and you insist on undoing all of her efforts!

Vicky, that puppy is so cute! Every time I see pictures of her, I'm tempted to run upstairs and get on my hands and knees and beg Vince to let me get a puppy.

Becky said...

Penny is one cute puppy. Thanks for sharing pictures. Glad to see she has toys to play with.

Beth said...

Gosh, I don't even know if I got my month 9, I am having them send me my blocks all at one time. Better go check now!

Miss Jean said...

Oh, my goodness. Little Miss Penney has certainly hit the gravy train with you. You can tell right now who is spoiled and who will be the boss. And stuff on the carpet - from someone who knows - ignore it. They just come back and multiply like rabbits!

I'm proud to say that not only did I complete this months blocks but I also finished the ones I was behind on and I had a lot of them to do. I did month 2, month 3 and month 6. And . . . . I'm so excited, I finished all of those 9 patch blocks too. That was 12 blocks. Take a look at my blog for photos. Getting excited about this BOM now that I'm caught up on my blocks.

Puppies, huh! My girls still drag their toys everywhere I am! I am constantly tripping over toys. They're worse than little kids, cuz you can't tell them to "pick up after yourself!". Penny is cuter than ever!
