Dog Days of Summer.....

     Roxie has been learning several new tricks this summer. One is fairly basic, how to walk on a leash and not constantly pull.  We have been putting her on a Gentle Leader and she is  a delight!  Good dog, Roxie!
      This is one of the fans on the corner of a crazy quilted table runner that I have been working on. At the rate I'm going, it will be years before I'm finished!
    Here is my Fabulous First Timers block back home after its travels.  All I did was make the block.  All of the embellishments were done by Ruby in White Oak, NC, Linda in Tucumcari, NM, Judy in Seneca, NY, and Pam, Issquah, WA. Thank you ladies for all of your hard work and talent!  Now, What am I going to do with it.......
    My husband and I take care of my mother who suffers from  alzheimer's.  One of my brothers and his wife who live in Maryland traveled all the way to California this summer to take care of mom and the pets so that we could get away. Isn't that one of the nicest things you ever heard?
    My husband, daughter, and I took a road trip to Yellowstone.  Here are four of my favorite memories.
Visiting the falls.

This was taken right before the bison got irritated enough by the crow to chase it. We were all startled!

There were so many hot springs, mud pots, and geysers but this is one of the prettier ones........I don't recall its name.
We stayed late one night to capture images of the full moon. It was a beautiful, warm evening filled with night birds and bats.

  1. Love the table runner. I enjoyed stitching on your block. Would be a nice panel on a tote bag! So glad you were able to get away. Very good brother and sister in law!!! Great pictures. Hard to choose a favorite. :)
