Sunday

by CountryThreads on March 5, 2017

Leo Lund went home last night after his 3 day stay at Lucky Dog Farm.


Mo arrived Friday afternoon and is here for another full week while her family goes on a cruise.    She and Telly play so well together.


This morning at 7 am Jack arrived, just for the day.


Jack is older and very sturdily built but he can still run very fast!

And at 8 am Bo, Tim’s black lab puppy,  arrived for an overnight stay.


His fur is so soft and silky – who doesn’t love a lab puppy?

At 9:30 I left Rick in charge of all 5 dogs while I went to church.

And late this afternoon an old friend is arriving to stay here until Wednesday.  We’re having beer and snacks for supper – yum!  No meat and potatoes, much to Rick’s dismay.  Ha!  It’s a warm day and the snow is disappearing.  I need to find a new sewing project – oh, but there are so many possibilities!

This is the day that the Lord hath made – let us rejoice and be glad in it!

This has nothing to do with all your dog sitting, but I have been wondering if you have finished your Vola quilt. When I saw it, I was inspired to make one as I had some 16 patches already made and wondered what to do with them. When I saw that quilt, I knew what I was going to do. My little squares were just 2″, so they finished at 6.5″. I have mine finished, completed quilted, bound and done, and I love it a lot. I do not know how to send a picture on the computer, or I would send one to you. I only know how to send them by cell phone. Thanks for that inspiration. It made me get another project done! I do enjoy your blog so much, and read it and all the comments. Thank you sharing your life with us.

Jeanine – I have not progressed on my Vola quilt. I only work on it when my girlfriends come and sew. Write to me at my email address listed at the top of the blog and I’ll give you my phone number. Can you send the photo from your phone to my email?

What fun you must have with all your dog friends! I wish I had one. I am a cat person and at present don’t even have a cat. Just 5 llamas and they are fun too. I walk them in the neighborhood and the folks enjoy seeing them. Unfortunately they can’t sit in my lap and purr in the evening!
I have a Doug Leko project in the works, Fiddlesticks. It is a fun one and I am doing it in flannel.
Happy, beautiful Sunday to you! Enjoy your evening.

I had an elderly gentleman that used to quote that each morning when he came to the senior center. It always made the day go right no matter what happened. Your blog does the same ting in a different way except now that you recited that quote it also makes my day go well.
Thank you for sharing.

Lucky Dog Farm is certainly the right name – I am so happy for all the dogs and animals you care for!

I too am a cat person and miss my Lucy so much but hope to get a kitty later this year, after our trip to Iowa. I need one that I can hold and love on. I did have a dog a long time ago but never had such a special place as your Lucky Dog Farm to board our dog. They really are lucky.

I just re-read a book that I know you would enjoy. It’s called “That Quail, Robert” by Margaret A. Stranger. It’s a delightful true story.

Love that face of Jack. We still have alot of snow and then i see your yard. In everything give thanks….I’m trying to. Pretty tired of snow and winter. Looking forward to the first buttercup. According to my journal this time last year the robins were back and the buttercups were out.
I just keep on sewing, here in wa state.
