Look how innocent little sleeping puppy looks. Miss Lucy has exhausted herself and fallen asleep. She is such fun to have around but when she decides it's bedtime, that's it. Fun's over. Time for napping.

The quilt in progress is a replacement for the one that some adorable little sleepy puppy tore a hole in and pulled out the stuffing. Lucy has forced me to have m quilts done on the machine or long-arm professionally. She likes the little ties in the quilts and goes at them full force until there's a hole. The batting is an added fun feature. Good thing I love that pup so much. Anyway, I found my Japanese fabrics and began a replacement quilt for James. I will have to send it out to be quilted though so that little tiny, itty, bitty, teeth can't play with ties and batting.

I decided on a Chinese(or Japanese) coin pattern. Not too complicated and goes together pretty fast. I have quite a bit done and enjoyed the first season of "In Plain Sight" on Netflix while I worked. That's one of my favorite shows and I had never seen the first season which is now available on the instant viewing option on my computer.

We have said goodbye to our wonderful company and another great visit. I'll talk more about that tomorrow. For now I just wanted to check in and say HI! I'm still kickin" and thankful for AC and power. The humidity is back and I hear next week the temps are going up again. Good time to be inside and busy...or napping. We'll see what the day brings. I may just take my cue from Lucy.

Lucy looks very comfortable being cradled. She's a real cutie.

Dee..if you ever wonder about fate and odd things tying us all together with heartstrings of connection...I just did a draft of a potential post where I talk about finding three photos that do not belong to me on an Internet search under my name. I come here, and the third photo under my name that was a mystery is on your post! Its your son holding Lucy. Email me and I'll cut and paste the Internet's strange little search it gave for me! One mystery solved. Now, I need to find out why there is a family I don't know and a piece of fabric that I've never seen next to your son, under my name!!!

So my secret words is that where Lucy is? In perfect blismsky?
