Friday afternoon, the lady who drives the van M-F to collect girl3 in the morning for work and bring her home in the afternoon brought a package of rawhide chew bones too. The girl was quite restless on Saturday so I gave her one and she loved it. Notice the teddy is always close.....
Same time, different angle...still chewing the rawhide bone.
Yes, that is cute....but SOMEONE peed on the floor by the back door two nights/mornings in a row. Ok, it was on the tiles and not the wood floor, but still...not cool! She seemed to have lost the plot Friday and Saturday nights!
She didn't wake me to go out, so I am trying to work out if she is unsettled because she didn't go to work over the weekend, or if I need to let her out again much later, or if it is because she is so much younger than the other two girls that she just can't go as long.
I was all motivated to sew this weekend. Saturday, I spent a lot of time cutting blades for a Whirlygig quilt, which in my little world will be called Happy Dance Quilt.
I've been looking at various tutorials for some time now.
I finally settled on one recommended on another blog (can't remember where) and it sounded great. So, I cut around 250-300 print and plain white blades on Saturday so I could do some massive chain piecing on Sunday. I cut 3 rows of 4 inch squares off of some of the fat quarters I chose earlier.
I cut the 4 inch squares into blades following the instructions on the tutorial and then I sewed them in pairs, print with white. I cut them apart for ease of ironing, then I counted them. There are 152 pieces in this picture. I sewed all the pairs I could until I ran out of white. I estimate there are 250-300 more print blades left.....I did spend a fair bit of time cutting blades yesterday!
I should have made a test block first...(head banging here)
This tutorial is WRONG! It starts off with a square which you cut into equal half blades.
Well, when you sew the blades, you no longer have a square, you have a rectangle due to the seam allowance. SO, if you wish to proceed, you will need to do some trimming to get a finished Happy Dance block.
Grrr...If you post a tutorial, please test it first to make sure it is correct...just saying!
( I was wondering if it was ME, but it is not...De also got same result as me )
This weekend, girl 3 has been wanting to be touching me. All. The. Time. It's our first weekend alone together and I think she is lost not going to work all day. When I was doing the chain piecing for the white, navy and lime quilt, she even went under the table and rested her head on my left thigh while I sewed. *warm fuzzies*
She really is a sweetie and my favourite so far, even if she has a weak bladder.
