Quilt top

Well its pretty much finished except for a few tiny applique details, but now to quilt the dang thing!
Yoda is pretending to be a muffin. She loves her one-size-too-small antique bowl.
Rogue, my extra fat dog, and I went for a short car ride the other night, just down the street. She loves car rides, that and hot dogs are her favorite things. I was feeling a bit down because I had just been to the Dr. to schedule knee replacement surgery for the end of December. He says I am too young for it but I have difficulty walking so I guess it must be done or continue with pain. Oddly it is one of the few things I am to young for, that, retirement, AARP....neither Rogue and I can walk very far, we are quite the pair. I would like to think I am not as fat as she is but according to my sons it is a close call.
This was taken not far from our house, and at my favorite time of day when the light is low and gold, it seems to grace and beautify everything it touches. It something like this does not lift the spirits then the only alternative is a massive dose of chocolate.


  1. There is magic in the evening sun
    The air breathes gold

    Quilts are a rage across the land, quilters in pockets show their wares. Used to watch granma when I was younger make quilts by hand.

  2. oooooh I like that! "the air breathes gold" what a nice way to put it!

  3. I love the photo of Yoda in the bowl--just too cute. I'm sorry about your knee surgery, but hopefully you will get some relief. Lovely night sky!
