Awhile back, I read on someone's blog, where a quilting instructor talked about cleaning your sewing room when you finished one quilt and before starting the next. She equated it to cleaning your kitchen after baking a cake, you just don't let the mixing bowls and measuring cups set around, you clean things up.
That's just the way I am, in my sewing room and my kitchen.
So as soon as I had the border on on Jake, and took my pictures, I was ready to move on to my next project. I put all my leftovers in a ziploc baggie and threw them in the big rubbermaid tub full of leftovers in ziploc bags from my other projects.
Everything came down from the design wall,
and I used a lint brush to remove all the threads.
I put up all my sewing tools, the rulers, tweezers, scissors and dusted my table.
I dusted my shelves
and laid my Stars and Coxcombs out, everything's ready for Wild Goos Chase.
There's nothing like a fresh start!!
Isn't this just the saddest face you've ever seen,
I had just broken the news to Cooper, no doggy daycare for a couple of weeks. He didn't take the news well.
Nothing in his toy box seemed to hold his attention,
So I bought a few new things....
anything to keep him entertained.
As you can see, Cooper really needs more toys.
But yesterday, when I was walking Cooper, a neighbor invited us over for a play date. My neighbor has a 4 year old setter of some kind AND a one acre fenced in back yard! The dogs got along great this morning so we're going back for more tomorrow.
A few updates.....
