I Like #218

 Welcome to another week of things to like!

It's definitely hot summer here now, but I'm watering regularly and my plants are hanging in there.  While mowing this week I came across definite confirmation of the fate of my beautiful new hand knit sock.  This is all that is left of it after Spooky's intervention.  Sigh.

It's a good thing he's so cute.  At least here he has a dog toy.  It's two-thirds chewed up, and I have to constantly fish as many little bits out of his mouth as possible when he gets them off the toy. 

Blue and Bentley are good too- here's Blue being a sweet doofus.

I really like this blooming tree we see while walking in my neighborhood.  I'm not sure what it is, but it's leaves are sort of frondy, and it's covered in these lovely pink furry flowers.  So cool looking!

I got this fun Star Wars fabric earlier this year to make some masks out of, and unfortunately I lost mine, but I still had some of the fabric left so this weekend I used it to make a new sunglasses case and key chain, both of my previous ones having worn out.  It makes me happy to see in my purse!

The pumpkin plant is growing voraciously,  it is still covered with flowers, and yesterday I saw what might be the first baby pumpkin.  Having overgrown the entire garden patch, it has now creeped through the fence and is growing on the porch.  It's astonishing to me how fast it is growing.

I blogged this week about a new quilt based on my Grandpa's lab notebook.  It was a very special project to me and you can read more about it and see more pictures here, and here!

I hope you are having a good week!  Click over to LeeAnna's for more things to like!


  1. Just a warning because it killed my cat. Things with long threads are very dangerous for dogs and cats. It can cause their intestines to accordion on the string and perforate. Also happened to my friends dog with a feminine product. Surprisingly one long thread. Cute dogs and love your quilts. Sorry to be a downer.

  2. Hi Shannon! Ooh, Spooky. That is a little scary and I'd hate for him to be harmed. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Milo still tears up his toys and we have to pull them out of his mouth
    Blue is so cute. My current book is about a woman rescuing a boxer/AM Staff. mix and reminds me of your babies. Pumpkins??? jealous...
    your meaningful art... always amazes me in it's complexity and vision

  4. Oh, I love that Star Wars fabric and what you made with it! Spooky, Spooky, Spooky.

  5. Love your new key chain and purse. Very useful but especially awesome! I guess pumpkin vines and zucchini vines have something in common with their growing: They slowly take over everything like hot lava! I lost my thyme plant last year due to being overrun by the zuke plant. Better keep an eye on your pumpkin plant! *wink*

  6. Bad Spooky! And goofy Blue. That Star Wars fabric is cute! Love the stuff you're working on!
