Cowboy Quilt, Neat Necklace, Doggy Duo.

Last Saturday I finally finished hand sewing the border on my first quilt I so lovingly named my Cowboy quilt. It took quite a while for me to sew it all together, especially the binding since I did that by hand. Overall I feel very accomplished finishing a quilt. This quilt is also very special since it's for my husband.... whenever I get one that is ;) It also happens to be the favorite quilt of my mom's dog Dot.

I made a neat necklace yesterday with my sisters and our friend. It actually took a long time for me to decide that I liked it. I kept rearranging where the pieces should be and I finally finished it. I love the rustic silver chain, I think rustic chains are really great chains when making eclectic jewelry.
I thought it'd be fun to talk a bit about the "Doggy Duo" we have residing in our place of residence. There is Charcoal our crazy black lab who is 8 years old, but still acts like a puppy, and then there is Dot our mom's aforementioned chihuahua. Charc-ly-Bark-ly as I so lovingly call him is a massive blob of energy and slobber. He is always in the mood to play. He is actually is a very smart dog because if no one is outside to play fetch with him he will play fetch with himself. He'll roll the ball across his back or pick it up with his mouth and throw it so he can "fetch it." This isn't the only silly thing this dog will do. He also enjoys oranges, which he picks off our trees and peels himself in order to eat the tasty fruit inside. He also has the softest and most flexible ears-I love them! Now on to the second and smaller member of the duo: Dot, or Crazies as I call her. Crazies is a very cute and silly dog. The two things she likes best in this world are her person, my mom, and quilts. She will follow my mom around everywhere and when my mom isn't here she curls up inside of a quilt. It's really cute because she curls up into a doughnut shape.
I love my doggies so much-they are so cute! I'm almost done with a second quilt so I'll be putting more pictures and posts soon. Happy Friday! Blogger out.
