Kara was getting after me the other day about not having anything new on my blog. I told her I didn't have anything new quilt related but I guess I could post a picture of Riley. Riley is the Shih Tsu puppy we are going to be getting. If everything works out we will be getting him this coming weekend. I really hope everything works out! Riley is supposed to be my birthday present but I think that was just the excuse so Gary could get him and Alex keeps saying that Riley is going to be his puppy! We'll see how long the puppy newness lasts when he has to keep getting up in the middle of the night to let Riley pee!!! We'll see how long it is until I'm the one getting up in the middle of the night and how long it is until I'm the one cleaning up the accidents!! We'll see whose puppy it ends up being in the long run!! Gary will just sleep through all the crying puppy nights like he did when the kids were little!

I haven't been really inspired to do much of anything lately. I have gotten my sewing room organized now that Kara is back at Houghton. I did put together a sewing package for her. She asked for some fabric squares, thread, embroidery floss and other things so she could try her hand at hand sewing when she was sitting around with her friends.

After seeing all the posts on Quilt Art about snow dyeing and seeing different posts on blogs, I've wanted to give it a try. Now that I have time, it's too warm and the snow is melting with all the rain. Just have to wait a couple days and it should get colder. Can't go too long in NH without cold winter weather!!

Oh Beth... he is soooo cute!! :) Obviously Gary is easier to convince that you 'need' a new baby then Pete is! LOL One day I'll get my little dog... but I guess it is some day far from now! Hope he comes home this weekend! (Have fun with the puppy training!)

Oh so sweet. We had good luck with puppy peepee pads we got at Kroger.
Also Ricky Pickles was better in a small area to sleep. If you do not have a crate then a cardboard box with one side cut down works. He felt more secure that way.
He still sleeps in a large plastic tub I turned on its side and put his bed in there I have it next to the other 2 dogs so they all sleep together, but Ricky still likes to be in his "house".
Beautiful fabric.
thanks for stopping by.
