Ripley Watch.....

He's four months old and Forty pounds.  He thinks he's as small as nine pound Bruno and Bruno thinks he's as big  as 40 lb Ripley.

He got his Rabies vaccination yesterday - so Now he's has 'Bling' on his collar.  

And Guess what??? We've figured out what exactly Ripley is (Aside from lovable)...
His Mom was a Lab Beagle Mix.  His dad was a German Wire Hair Pointer....Google it and you'll get it.  We've had purebred dogs before, But we think he's a Rock Star in his own right-- no papers needed...
To keep this a quilt journal-- fair and square-- here's the quilt part..

Carol showed me this Scrappy Stars Along with 12 inch blocks.  Determined to whittle down the scrap box, I figure two blocks a month, I'll have a quilt in no time.
These are the Volunteer Mums that came back form last year. I just let them go wild this summer even though the rest of the flower bed was filled with begonias-- my flower bed-- my rules---.Now the begonias are gone and I have fall flowers left....

Ripley is quite a beauty. I love his pose. They say mutts are best in temperament :)

What cute pups! They are so adorable... and I love Ripley's little bit of wirey hair in his coat... gives him cute character :o) The blocks are gorgeous! Love the wool and love the stars.

Your mums should come back year after year. If you pinch them back till around the first part of July, they will bush out fuller.

I love our little German Wirehair Pointer. She minds well and is full of love. It looks like your little cutie has the same loving face. Hope he minds as well as Ella does.
