Journey Quilt and Danny's Shenanigans

I haven't posted anything regarding sewing/quilting in a long time, and I know you've all been waiting with baited breath.

I just (nearly) finished my Journey quilt top. I wanted to get it done before the hus and I drove to Reno in mid-August because once there, I'd like to take this quilt to my favorite quilters who live in Carson City... though they always seem to charge me double what they charge my mother. (This time my mother and I have cooked up a brilliant scheme. We're going to go TOGETHER to drop off our quilts... then we'll see! Then we'll see...)

Here are some pics of this fabulous quilt:

Here's a close-up of the cute corners:

And here are some close-ups of some of my favorite blocks:
The reason I said I (nearly) finished it is because at this size it is just a wee too small for our bed. I'm going to make an extra border out of these fabrics, so stay tuned for more pictures:

While I was having this quilt photo shoot, Danny had some 'splainin' to do! He somehow gets himself stuck under the dresser. This is the second time it's happened... at least while we've been home to hear him growling for help. I'm making it a habit to snap some pictures before giving him any sort of assistance.

He tried to squeeze out by himself:

Then he got frustrated and just stared at me:

Isn't he adorable? Today I let him lick my ice cream cone a few times... it's not so gross after all. As Michael Jackson said on a constantly re-aired documentary special from 2003 with Britain's Martin Bashir regarding adults sharing their bed with friends' children: "That's love... that's love."

Gorgeous quilt!
That's disgusting that you share your ice cream with your dog, I bet you let him give you open mouth kisses too.

You know where Dan puts his mouth Leslie. Why would you admit to such things on the world wide web?

that is so cute that Danny gets stuck under the dresser. I do the same thing whenever Maggie or Sammy get stuck in interesting places or do dorky things, that just what dog moms do.
