A Dog's Life

I spent the long weekend with my friend, Kim.

After a five-hour drive from my city down to hers, I was greeted by this cute little face:

This is Kim's new puppy, Penny. She's a golden retriever-Brittany spaniel cross. What a sweetie!

Our plan for the weekend was to do some visiting, get lots of sewing/quilting done, finish our marking and have a girls' night out.

Visiting - Check
Sewing/quilting - Sort of
Marking - Not much
Girls' Night Out - Yep (got home after 2 am)

I was so ambitious and optimistic about my projects. I packed my sewing machine, my Postage Stamp quilt top, batting and backing, as well as the fabric and pattern for my skirt. What was I thinking?

I managed to piece together the backing for the Postage Stamp quilt. No basting, no quilting, no cutting out or sewing the skirt. I packed it up again and brought it all home with me.

Someday...someday I will get that quilt finished. Someday I will sew that skirt and then the dress.

But not tonight. I'm exhausted. The five-hour drive home was terrible - it rained the entire way and in some places it was raining so hard I could hardly see the road. Yuck.

Back to work tomorrow. I can almost see June on the horizon.

That face! How sweet! I haven't gotten much sewing done either. My Postage Stamp is still in striped pieces. Only 10 blocks put together!

Just did a Google search for 'Breton spaniel labrador cross' and up popped your picture.... it's our 'Bertie' to a tee!
Bertie's mother was a Breton spaniel which was visited by an unknown dog, which I'm now wondering might be a golden retriever rather than a spaniel. Anyway, he attracts admiration wherever he goes here in France.
