Sweet pinks and a pup

It has been such a busy week, that I have not sat down in front of a sewing machine once! I can't remember that ever happening before in the last 20+ years! I have done some hand stitching and some fabric cutting and organizing here and there, but no machine work.


Today I am dogsitting and sewing ... all day! 
I plan to work on some pink blocks for my Omigosh project.  See how I am holding the blocks in place with the chocolate hugs that I plan to eat while I sew?!!


I couldn't resist taking a photo of the first pink block completed today with my granddog Max.
Isn't he just so adorable?!
Well, most of the time he is adorable but sometimes he is a handful!
Hey... come back here with my block!
To see more pink projects being sewn today, hop over to SoScrappy.

  13. Oh My Goodness! If ate that much chocolate I would be sick :-( The pup is sweet, even when he takes off with your blocks. I had a real smile at that.

  20. LOVE the pics of your granddog, Max! He is adorable and a great quilt block model. I also love the way you hold down your blocks so that they don't fly away with CHOCOLATE!!! Great work with your pink scraps in the RSC14.
