What I'm working on...

 Not much quilting going on here the past few days.  This is what I have been working stuff for my sister!  Yesterday I started decorating her archway.  The plan is to decorate it in my sewing room, let her look at it to make sure she likes it, then take it apart and set it up in the Church a day before the wedding.  Here is a sneak peak of it so far.  I still have a lot more to do to it but my lower back and hips started really hurting last night so I had to stop.  I think it was due to climbing on that ladder.  The archway is 7ft and I'm only 5ft so I was on the ladder most of the time.  Anyway, this is the photo that I sent to Chantal last night and she loved it.  Once I get it completely finished she will come out and look at it for the final approval.  I have over 40 yards of tulle on this thing!
 I still have a lot more wedding stuff to get finished and the wedding is 3 weeks away!  I didn't worry and stress this much over my own wedding.  She is my baby sister and she has never been married before so she is super excited.  

Other than the wedding stuff this little girl is taking up the rest of my time.  Mammy has made herself right at home.  She is hard to keep up with, a ball of energy!  I had forgotten how much work a puppy is.  I love her and she is so worth the work! 
 She will be 6wks old tomorrow and right now she weighs 9.4 pounds.  The vet said she was healthy as a horse and trust me, she eats like one too.  

How could you resist this little face?  :)
 Jazz the yorkie, doesn't like her at all, probably because she tries to chew on his nub/tail.  Leo our boxer, likes her or should I say tolerates her.  LOL!  Leo has lots of energy too but I think after a little while she annoys him.  She follows him around everywhere and tries to nurse!  :)  Actually she has been eating well on her own for a few weeks now but I guess that is only natural as young as she is.  

I guess that is all for now, I'm going to stretch out here on the couch for a bit and see if I can get my back and hips to ease off.

Beautiful work on the archway. I hope you will share photos with us of all the decorating you do for Chantal's wedding.
I know I don't have the energy for a puppy, but I'm glad you do. Mammy sure is cute. : )
