Here are the 5 blocks that I did yesterday! These now bring me up to 35 blocks on the Love Letter! A far cry from the 110 that I need! I am really enjoying working on these quilts. I love how each block is different and of course I just love the Civil War fabrics. I think I will order my border fabric for this one soon. I have two fabrics picked out for this one but I am only going to do one border so I just need to decide between them.
Here I wanted to see how they were looking so I turned a quilt backing up so I would have a solid cream background, the sashing strips will be cream so this is alot how it will look. I didn't put them in any certain order I just put them down. I really like how it is looking.
This morning while I was fixing breakfast, Richard went out to feed the horses, he yelled for me to come outside and here is what he found.....8 puppies!!! I'm not sure if I got them all in the photo but there are 8! Don't have a clue where they came from, we live out in the middle of nowhere so from time to time people drop off puppies! I hate when they do that!!!!!! It really makes me mad! The are cute but we do not need anymore!! We have 2 outside dogs and did have a few more but they have disappeared. We have Ida Belle and Fred, which is a Bassett.
As you can see here, Hunter has gone crazy over them!!! He wants to keep them all. I think I will put an ad in the newspaper to see if we can give them away.
While I was back through the house cleaning and doing laundry, Richard let Hunter bring one inside. :( As you can see they are new best friends...this one is the runt and they have already named him Bruno!!!
Anyway, enough of all of that! I think I will finish cleaning the house and work on a few more blocks this evening...
