It’s hard to believe at our next posting we will be wrapping up summer. How time flies when you’re having fun and I have been, working on this panel. At our last posting I had shared that I would be starting this panel.
For the back I decided on this very soft looking daisy print in complimentary subtle colors
I am using coordinating thread colors to match the petals. I am working on outlining all the petals first and then I will decide about going back into each petal to add some detailed pattern to it.
If you’ll indulge me, look who I caught enjoy Dahlia when I put her down and headed to the kitchen ~ Skye
Once I spied her and captured the first picture she promptly sat up, deciding whether she better get out of there. * We have only had Skye for 19 days now. A mini 13lb Schnauzer mix that we adopted with the help of Cozze Paw Rescue out of Portland, OR. They rescue dogs at kill shelters along the west coast. Skye is a 6 yr female, found as a stray in southern CA, had been pregnant (we had recently lost our 15 yr old Schnauzer and were devastated, quickly turning to rescue again) We fell in love immediately. She was brought up to the Humane Society in Port Angeles, WA . They spayed her, did extensive dental work, micro chipped, flea bath, updated all vaccines (all for a minimum $150, we made an additional donation – dental work can run into a thousand t alone)
It never occurred to us that we might be getting an ill-behaved, troubled pup and thank fully we didn’t ~ she is so precious!
Remember this quilt for my grandson Kris and Alice? ~ Kira Lynn arrived on August 5th another precious addition to our family ❤
