Saturday Morning....Priorities Straight.

Ripley had his last vaccination for a while this morning.  So Bruno and I load him up and were off to the Vet at 8 a.m. this morning.... This snap shot was taken today after the vet, a bath and all the doggy stuff ran through the washer.  Nothing like clean pups....

Next of the docket for Saturday---Weekly house cleaning-- you know the weekly vacuuming, dusting, bathroom ritual that we all would like to pretend happens by magic.  But first.... I played... I strung up the left over dried apples from last week's Sunday school project.

and I stretched and framed my finished project from Primitive Quilts magazine.

It had an embroidery stitch I had never done before-- completely hooked on it...just looking for another reason to use it!.
 Note:  I actually started AND finished a seasonal project in the SAME season.... A rarity in my life. But--- I accept it and move on-- and it doesn't stop me from projects.  The Winter issue is out--- I've seen pictures of a snowman project I'm just dying to make.....

Now I'll do the housework....

Your pups look like they posed on cue for that picture! So cute! I really like the blue toned background plaid on your PQ project... and the blue frame! Very nice!

Darling doggies *s*

Tell me - did you dry the apples yourself? I might just need to try my hand at that.

The boys look all handsome! Love your project. It turned out very nice. I think you might be talking about the same snowman project I am excited about :o)

Ripley is a ham! I love your project! I too had to do that dratted housework on a beautiful fall day. It looks like you have fall decorating down.

Love your crow! There are so many projects in those Prim magazines that I want to make. Did you see the darling tree skirt in the latest issue? And I can't believe you are making doggie treats! I saw those on Pinterest also. You are always doing something cute! Love the apple string!

pups are soo adorable!
I read your post about interrupted sleep by hubby. My hubby gets up at 5 every morning. on a couple of those mornings i could sleep in but I don't. Hit the sewing room which makes for a perfect yet very early start to the day.

now i'm used to it. it's part of the routine. look forward to seeing what you do with the old but still beautiful thimbleberries blocks.

Clean dogs are the best, if only they'd stay that way a bit longer. LOVE your raven/pumpkin piece. It is gorgeous!

Greenmare said...

Look at sweet Ripley...he's growing up...what a precious face. Nothing much better than clean, sweet pups! Love your pumpkin project!

I love your "seasonal" crow, but I have to say - I have crows all year! But they do seem so "fallish". Little seasonal decorations add a lot to a home! Cheers! Evelyn
