Where have I been...

...well I don't really know. I've just been getting on with things. I do check out the blogosphere all the time but by the end of each day I'm so pooped from working that I just don't feel like posting.
I have almost caught up on my backlog of customer quilts from last year and this year has been full steam ahead with quilts coming to me each day. I love quilting and I love the reaction of my customers when I send their quilts back to them and they absolutely love them.
 
I try to squeeze one of my quilts in once in a while. Last weekend I got this beauty up and quilted. I will have more photos soon. The quilting is finished, I just have to bind it.
 
Photo: Some Sunday swirls...the frame was free so I put my scrappy trip around the world up and did some freehand swirls. I love the simplicity of the swirls. They are fun to do...
 
Today we bought this little guy home. He is an orphan and I just fell in love with him at first sight. We have been waiting for the right dog to come along and he just appeared on facebook and I knew he was the one. Perfect !!! He is only 5 weeks old and I will be his surrogate mum for the next couple of weeks. He is so placid and already feels like part of the family...
Photo: Look who joined our family today...he is so cute. He is 5 weeks old so he needs alot of special care. Welcome home Diesel
 
It's going to be hard to concentrate on quilting with him here with that cute little face looking up at me. Tomorrow I will sort out a pen for him to be near me but not under my feet.
 
Happy Quilting
Leanne xo

What a difference the quilting makes, it really brings the quilt to life. Your new baby is a sweetie. Somehow they just know when they've been rescued, and they are faithful friends for life. Maybe he needs his own quilt?

Hi Leanne! I'm wondering how you can still make your own quilts, when quilting so much other's. that quilt is really beautiful!
Welcome new family member! He is so cute! My Hanna was also only 5 weeks when she was thrown to our garden and Nero found her. She is the most sweet and lovable dog but very easily affraid and worried. That can be a problem if they are aparted from their mom's too early. I don't know how, but try to encourage your puppy to be comfortable with people, many kind of places etc. later when he gets a little bit older. Now just enjoy the precious puppy time! x Teje
