Goldie has adapted very well to being the one and only. She Loves it. This is not an unusual position for her. She does this out of the blue and just stays like that… Linzi didn’t do this. Bandit didn’t do this (ever). The only dog I have had that did was Axel… all the time. He would also play with toys on his back, trying to either hold or position a toy in his mouth with is forelegs. Goldie does this too.
She has become a delight… now that she is healthy and seems to be learning faster. In addition, she has become the WATCH dog…. raising the alarm… when she thinks there is trouble!!! Boy can she get loud and deep.
Its great that she is doing well after a year of health issues and antibiotics. We tried to put her back on a commercial dog food, but that was a NO GO, so she is still on prescription food, although I may ask the vet if we might be able to change to one that is not the last resort formula.
We’ll be back again soon with a project. Of course technology has reared its ugly head in several areas AGAIN!
Life here has been getting back to normal. So catching up… was the plan of the week for everyone but Goldie. She just plays with toys, first one and then another…. If I pick them up… and put them in the box she spends a little while taking them all out. If she is impatient she up ends the whole box! This is Goldies idea of normal!
What else is going on? In September I was a vendor at the local Quilt Show. It was so much fun, that I decided to also have a booth at another local Quilting Event. It is called the “One Stop Shop Hop of the Bluegrass” over the weekend of October 19 & 20 in Shepherdsville Kentucky. Pretty local … about a half hour up the road!!! If your are local-ish its a good day out and you get to visit with about 20 stores under one roof. There is a Fat Quarter Pot, (exchange a Fat Quarter for a ticket) and Booth Visit Bingo Game.
So I am spending a good deal of time preparing for a booth, again. There is so much to that… from having inventory to displays and the logistics of getting it all from point A to point B! Fortunately it is all aspects of creativity, so while I am not in the Creative Space much;
I have been working on the Chickens (I have been asked if there is a pattern for my Chicken Dance quilt so I have had to check measurements and requirements) so I am making a smaller quilt. I have also been working on a new sample for an upcoming sharing/teaching (Threadpainting) opportunity later this month locally. I shared this technique in July as well with some ladies in Indiana!
These are some of the flowers for the Threadpainting…. I try not to make too many the same/similar.
Well this post got a bit waylaid as I was writing it. But most of it is still relevant! That is the not so eventful life I lead!
Things at IHaveANotion are once again busy behind the scenes.
Locally, the other guild (I belong to 2) is having their annual Quilt Show in September. The show set up is on Thursday and of course the show will be on Friday and Saturday. I will have a full 2 weeks of preparation!!! for sure. Lots of little details to pull together. I have a huge respect for those that do this several weeks… in a row! A couple of times a year… is almost enough for me.
So if you are passing through… stop in for some eye candy and vendors.
IHaveANotion will be there… too.
So getting ready is taking up lots of time!!!! and energy! But I love meeting people and sharing… the quilty life! So my time will be well spent.
Speaking of quilty life… I just had to add a little something to my car…
that subtly indicates that a quilter is driving!
and a sneak peek at what I am working on…. in the Creative Space
If I don’t see you …. over the weekend… Have a Great End of Summer and Labor Day holiday!
