I Like #46

Not too many pictures to share this week, all the ones I took were of my Christmas cacti and my dogs, but still lots of things to like!

1.  I like podcasts!  I really enjoy listening to podcasts and I'm always on the lookout for new ones.  If any of you have any to suggest, please leave them in the comments.  This week I've been particularly enjoying The Honest Designers Show.  It's primarily about the nuts and bolts of making a living as a designer, but I find it quite interesting and many things are things I think about maybe being someday applicable to an art business.

2.  I like Christmas music!  I like all kinds of Christmas music, classical, pop, oldies, but my favorite Christmas albums are the three by Amy Grant and Roger Whitaker's Christmas album.  I had the first Amy Grant one as a little kid and have always loved it.  This is my favorite song from the Roger Whitaker Album.  Hallelujah It's Christmas.

3.  I like starting new things!  I've begun to work on my newest art quilt, and it's one that consists of little pieces I cut up from other projects.  Right now I'm in the design phase, but it's been lots of fun!

4.  Just for good measure, I like my flowers and my dogs!  And yes, in case you're wondering, that is Bentley trying to crawl into my lap by climbing over the end table.  Alas.

Hope you guys are having a good week and finding time to prepare for the holidays!  Thanks to Lee Anna for linking us up!


  1. Bentley is definitely a more robust lap dog than Bobbin. The next quilt is going to be fabulous. Love seeing everyone's Christmas Cactus.

  2. Hi Shannon,
    Bentley should have given you a big 'ole kiss before settling in your lap - I like the over the side table move. Sweet! That cactus is just gorgeous - makes me want to go out and get a few more to enjoy this time of year. I love Christmas music too - all of it. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Your cactus blooms looks lovely! That is a large lap-dog. LOL. I've recently discovered podcasts, too. We are starting to listen to the Futility Closet (trivia and logic puzzles). I look forward to see what you do with those triangles scraps. :-)

  4. That is a beautiful song! I've always loved Roger Whitaker's voice, too. Your new project looks like fun! I like the flow of color from light to dark. Enjoy those dogs!

  5. I've been enjoying Happier with Gretchen Rubin (and her sister Elizabeth Craft). I usually get laughs from Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.

  6. Season Greetings! Great post--your quilt is looking great! Bentley is adorable!

  7. Wow Shannon, your new quilt looks amazing.
    Oh though I love my dogs, I do miss having a lap dog and one that wants to be there as much as Bentley does.
    Thanks for the links...Roger's voice is part of Christmas in our house too.
    Enjoy next week very much!
