Not much happening this weekend. I have spent my time doing household chores and finishing the scottie quilt. Here is a picture of a quilt I made a few years ago. It is a baby quilt, alphabet is from my embroidery machine then pieced. This is quilted on my sewing machine, it was done before the longarm purchase. I am saving it for when I have a grandchild, which will probably be very far of in the future. It may even be an antique quilt by then.

While quilting on the scottie dog quilt today, listening to the radio, there was a report this is the Chinese New Year. The year of the dog. What a great time to be working on a dog quilt. Coincidence? I also found out I am a dog. I was born in the year of the dog many many moons ago. Quite interesting.

I will get back to quilting. I wanted to get a post done while I was taking a break. Hubby is cooking tonight, hamburgers are on the menu. They should be good. Have a great evening.

I have all sorts of Heirloom baby clothes oacked away for when I have grandbabies, but it looks like I have a few more years till I can take them out. I am feeling impatient !
Happy New Year ! My husband is year of the dog too, 1946

Lucky! I wish I were born the year of the dog. I might as well have been, I am a doggie freak! I like you you incorporate your embroidery designs into your quilting!
