Design Wall Monday, 10/25

I had to make a big decision about what to show this week for the Design Wall. These are the strip sets for my granma's birthday/Christmas quilt. I think that this will be the project that I focus on when I get everything back in order in my sewing area. I was able to get 36 strip sets sewn and pressed on Saturday night before packing everything up to come home.

And finally, the pups return to blog land! They were pretty excited to see me yesterday! We spent most of the evening cuddling on the bed while I rested and napped a little.

your strips good great I like the color choice.

Your pup are so adorable. We are trying to get a baby Dachshund ourselves. Trying to be calm and wait patiently to find one:)

Your blog is great!

It can be boring sewing all those strips together but I bet the quilt top will go together quickly now.

Kare said...

Cute doggy. And sewing strips sets is one of the most boring things to do... which may explain why I haven't finished my trip around the world quilt. Getting closer though. Look forward to seeing what comes from the strip sets.

The eyes of those doggy pictures just make me want to melt into them. I love your colours in the strips, and am looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

Love your dog. We have never left our doxie and are even taking her with us for our Christmas trip. However, she will have to stay home when we travel for our 50th in January and I already am feeling bad about it. Love that dog.
