Et Al

I believe that means "and everything" or "and everyone" - 
or something like that :).

This is Dobby - Jake's new puppy.  (We lost our Stumpy in November.  Dobby doesn't replace him but he helps fill the void.)


His name is Dobby because he really likes socks - and he doesn't care if your feet are still in them, in fact he kind of likes it better.


He and Hunny play a lot, rolling around on the floor and chewing on things.  He's about the size of her head but he usually holds his own and once in awhile he even gets a sock away from her.


Spike just usually sleeps through it all  :).  Bulldogs are not high energy dogs.  Labradors and Corgis are!

So that's what occupies a lot of our time on the home front.  


That and trying to get things done on the choring front.  
Coming back to the house after feeding the chickens and wild birds or hanging up clothes can be quite a challenge.
Most of the packed snow turned to packed ice when we had a couple of warm days.  
Now it's back in the teens and twenties again.
We figure the driveway and front lawn might be clear again by the 4th of July :).

On the quilting front - 
We're having a "hearts" sale - 


need to get ready for Valentines Day, you know.


All Hearts kits and patterns are 15% off for a week.


And I emailed Sophie at Quiltmania and she sent some more of those great Simply Vintage magazines. We just have a few so get yours now!


Lots of great things to keep us busy inside where it's warm.
Keep quilting ladies.

  2. Dobby is adorable... I'm a big fan of Corgis and I hope Dobby brings you as much joy as my Emma and Owen have brought me.

  3. Thank you. We think they're kinds of cute too.
    We are a big fan of Corgis and bulldogs and are learning to appreciate labradors - slowly :) Don't know what I'd do without my animals.
