On June 12, my Stella gave birth to her second litter. The pups are black and yellow labs. They will be ready to go home to families in early August. To follow their progress or to contact me about this litter, please visit our 2013 Puppy Page. The webcam will be operating as our “puppy cam” once the little guys are up walking and playing.
My quilting will be taking on hold for the puppies this summer. I expect to be back at the mean machine in September.
I’ve been working on a new shirt quilt. This time I am incorporating more solid colors and working with thinner strips. It’s easy to make when I have all the raw materials quick at hand. I have been collecting old shirts from thrift stores for over a year now.
Working through another winter storm this weekend. Good thing creativity is not weather dependent!
Our plower-guy quit in the middle of the storm. Splendid. I live on a private drive and the City will not come with a bucket-loader to clear us out. Hopefully I will get “off the rock” tomorrow.
A blue-blooded New Englander, I love a good snow storm. Ventured out at the peak of the snow on Friday night.
Then again, all this weather keeps me inside and at the sewing machine. Working on another William Morris quilt. Trying to find just the right the balance of colors and patterns.
It has begun and we can no longer see the harbor.
I just finished this one and sent it off to the Newfane Country Store in Newfane, VT.
Here at Gloucester Quilter, we have a “Lobstar” atop our tree. Happy Holidays!
