Max got his hair cut

Here is Max at Petsmart just before he got his hair cut. I am ashamed that it took me so long to make an appointment for him. He really needed to have his haircut and always acts like he enjoys being fresh and cute.

Here he is after the haircut. Isn't he cute! Max is a little over 12 years old and weighs about 5 pounds. He is our baby and rules the house.

On a quilty basis, I made the first four blocks for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler this morning. We are holding an Elm Creek Club that meets once a month and today was the day. We were expecting about 5 people but more than 10 showed up. I was going to take a photo of my blocks but Maetha accidentally took my book home. I was in a panic because my blocks were in there, plus the patterns for all 140 blocks. I had organized a book to show everyone how I organize a project like this and when I got ready to go home, I couldn't find it.

Everyone was very excited about this project and spent quite a bit of time deciding on their color scheme or theme. I decided to use batiks. I was undecided about a background fabric and finally got a couple of yards of plain white Southern Belle. I don't think I will use it throughout the quilt but it is good for a start. I can always add some other backgrounds later.

We chose the next four blocks so I will get them made soon. We aren't meeting next month because the first Sunday of February is the Super Bowl and that is the day of our biggest sale of the year.

I will get the book back in the next couple of days and take the photo to post.


  1. I'm so glad you are working of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler! I have one I've been working on for about a year now. I've got about 35 blocks done so far, and I love the way they look. Mine are in brights, with a white on white background. I'll look forward to seeing your pictures

  2. Max is so cute--before and after his haircut.

  3. Max is adorable! I love seeing pictures of peoples pets.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
