Life On Tuesday

I'm sure you all are getting tired of sewing these pink and brown blocks but here are 3 more that I did last night! I have done any so far today, maybe later on tonight. I tried to catch up on some laundry and cut the grass. I even switched some horses around in different pastures.

Today I got this wonderful package from Mary in Canada. Mary doesn't have a blog but she ran onto my blog and we have became very good friends via email!!! Don't you just love the internet??? Anyway, Mary is making a quilt with like a million 2 inch squares. I can't remember the exact amount but there were so many that I would not attempt to sew that many together! So I was curious on what fabrics she was using so what does she do????......She sends a box of sqaures that she has been using in her quilt! How nice is that?? Here is a photo of the pile of squares and she also sent the vintage reproduction fabric!!! My mom is so fascinated by how nice that complete strangers can be when they want to be. She so enjoys when I tell her about things that are going on in my "Quilty World"

I mentioned a few days ago about Chantal burning her fingers on the lawnmower, well here is a photo of her hand! She said it is still very sore!

And here she is trying to pack off Bruno!!!! Isn't he cute? Well, he is cute now but he will probably be so ugly when he grows up! :) We still have all of the others outside and if I can't give them away within a few more days then I will just have to call the animal shelter. I really hate to do that but I just can't feed all of those. That would be 10 dogs plus all of our other animals. Does that make me a bad person to take them to the shelter?

Well, I'm off! I've got to get the boys to bed!!!!

What an adorable picture of your sister and Bruno. I think he's found the perfect home next to Donkey. Calling the animal shelter does not make you a bad person. The bad person or persons are the ones who just dumped off the puppies in the middle of the night.

Love your blocks, love your fabrics, and Bruno and Chantel are adorable. I don' think you are bad for calling the shelter. You are being more responsible than the one who deposited them on your property.

I love the blocks and the fabric is so pretty. Always enjoy seeing your blocks. I think Hunter has lost Bruno. He seems to like Chantel.

The blocks looks great...poor Sissie's fingers...they will be sore for several days.

Do what you think is best about taking the puppies to the animal shelter. I agree you can not afford to feed all of them....that is why animals (cats/dogs) shoould be fixed and not allowed to over populate the world.

Of course you're not a bad person ... but the one who just drops them off like that is! You're the one who's worried about them. The pink and browns are wonderful! I don't get tired of them.

you are not the bad person for taking them to the animal shelter - the people who didn't spay/neuter their animals and then dropped the puppies off is. There is no way you can feed all those puppies!

Love the blocks - more great fabric.

Yes, the internet is an amazing place to meet new friends!! What a great little surprise in the mail!!

I am soo loving your pink and brown combination...your blocks look great!

OUCH, your sister's fingers look painful!

And no you are not a bad person, you are doing the humane thing. hugs

Jen said...

No, you're not a bad person. A person can only take care of SOOO many dogs! I think when you call, you should tell them that you've had several batches of dogs left behind; set the precedence so that they're not questioning you the next time you call them!

LOVE the blocks!!

I love your blocks. The pinks and browns are really starting to get to me and I want to start using them in a quilt. You are not a bad person, you are doing the right thing for the dogs.

Your blocks are so nice! Have you got EQ, or do you just take photo copy like me? I have to start the CW blocks again, in September I think. Must consentrate on work and school now!

Trish said...

You are definately not a bad person! And you can't be expected to look after all those puppies! The humane shelter is the right thing to do.

Guðrún said...

Of course you can´t keep all the puppies. Chantal looks a lot like you.

YOur pink and brown blocks are just the best! Your quilt will be wonderful. That is such a cute scrub top, and I like both the models too!
