I've been up since 5 AM and at the computer. I've told you that my Lola is an odd little puppy mill rescue. I think that she was not socialized and was probably born and kept in a cage while she was growing up to be a breeding dog. Well, at about 5:30, she sat beside me with the treat she got yesterday from the bank teller at the drive through. She just sat like this and stared.
I asked her if she wanted to go outside, to get a drink, to eat, to play toys....nothing. Just the stare and the death grip on the treat. This went on for about 45 minutes. I tried petting her, picking her up...nothing. Just the stare. I talk about Charlie a lot in this blog because of his "condition" but I have little Lola that I love too. Look at that face. She's a little "odd" and she's "big boned" but she's my little heart. I think she knows how much she is loved. Her little episodes of trying to communicate are so entertaining. I wish we could chat.
As I told you guys, I started the Love Entwined: 1790 Marriage Coverlet BOM and hit a snag. I have some block or something in my mind about how to attach the center compass block to the ring around it and then to the main block. Someone in the Yahoo group suggested that I go to Esther's blog and look at the photos of how she did hers. So, I was awake at 5 AM anyway and I searched her blog. I didn't realize that she had painstakingly created a version of the coverlet from a black and white photo in a process that took her over a year (just to do the pattern).
She enlarged the photo to the size of the quilt and then started tracing.
HERE. Posts about this BOM start in July of 2013.
Well, have to go feed the birds and water the one fern on my front porch and then get to work! Lola has now laid down, still clutching her treat. I wish I knew what she wanted. Hope you have a wonderful day! XO and Cheery wave from Bev
