I feel like Collin and Michael on Saturday Night Live when I announce an “update”! Haha!
It’s September, kids are in school, Connie is home from the lake and it was time to introduce Hazel and Betty. Neither one walk too good on a leash but we did it anyway.
They are true to their breed – the competitive terrier trots out front with the lab casually strolling along behind – haha!
Yesterday I finished up the chair covers for the two red recliners.
When we were buying the fabric for the couch quilts, I also bought 2 yds. of this red cowboy fabric. I don’t love cowboys but I loved the colors in this home dec fabric. It was on sale for $4.00/yd. and 2 yds. with my coupon brought the total to around $7.00! I think I may have showed you this fabric.
I pieced a back and put it on the quilting machine a few weeks ago. Of course I quilted it with straight lines.
The next step was to trim the batting and backing. No picture, I guess.
Then cut it in half up the middle and bind each piece.
These will be great chair covers through the fall and until I change for Christmas.
Here’s a picture I forgot to post from the day we visited the Grotto. Myra saw this phone booth and was fascinated with it – and couldn’t believe a phone call was only 10 cents when I was a kid. Oh man, did I feel old!
I leave you with Betty and her toy raccoon.
Tune in tomorrow when I post the cover and title of our new book!
