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.

Oh I like that reward system! Maybe Max is trying to steal your blocks so he can bribe you for a treat!

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.

Beautiful pink blocks, an adorable dog, and chocolate--that all looks like a great day to me!

I guess even dogs can't resist 9 patches. The blocks look great. I love that even your chocolates are wrapped in pink.

Hope you got lots of stitching done yesterday with (or in spite of?) your sewing buddy for the day.

Cathy said...

I'll have to try your method of holding blocks in place! Max is so cute.

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.
