I Like Thursday: May 10, 2018

Happy Thursday!  
Spring is in full bloom here and we are enjoying more outside time!
How are you doing this morning?

We've had a busy week.  Scout met a new friend, Ginger.  
She is a poodle about Scout's size!

 There was a lot of playing around.  Ginger could be a little rough.
 But Scout held her own😄
This is our special friend Carol.  Carol is my neighbor and accomplice in fabric accumulation.  

She has had a special relationships with all my dogs and especially Scout.  Carol babysits Scout these days while I am out lecturing.  On Tuesday, Carol was binding a quilt while hanging with Scout.  Typical poodle, Scout made herself comfortable on what she considered was a new bed:

I had two bookings for my sunbonnet program this season.  The program is one of my most popular and keeps the audience engaged and laughing.  Anyway,  it got me in the mood to embroider.  It also doesn't hurt that my shoulder is doing better in this warm weather.  No matter how many years I do a program, I'm always adding or tweeking it.  I like this piece.  It's a wallhanging I call it Swing into Spring!  
The border fabric is an old Hoffman fabric (no name on the selvage) but I love it.  I can't even begin to count all the projects I've used that fabric.
It's beautiful outside right now but we are expecting a rainy weekend.  I need to get into the garden while I can.  Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful weather and so cute pup. I also love that little old time embroidery. So springy and I like the fabric too. Perfect.

HA! That karate kick photo!!! Scout is so beautiful, with her gray legs and pretty haircut. Love her. Flowering trees are so pretty right now, here too. Great shots and love that embroidery. I'd have enjoyed seeing your lecture.

Way to go Scout with the Ninja moves!
The tree fabric behind the embroidery is brilliant as it is like the swings hanging from the tree.

Lovely embroidery - is the pattern an Aunt Martha, by any chance? It seems similar to an Aunt Martha pattern I am doing now - a set of tea towels. Enjoy your weekend!

Woooo I'll see y'all - including your accomplice and your shadow (and maybe your shadow's ginger friend) in a couple of months!
