Put your foot down #110
Put your foot down is a weekly linky party to share your fiber arts WIP’s and finishes, and hopefully make new friends along the way.
Welcome, I invite you to stop in every Thursday and share your projects.
Thank you for stopping by and for linking up in advance. Have you had a productive week? My list is getting shorter.
One quilt for AccuQuilt was complete and I’ve started work on the second quilt, actually a table runner for them. I can’t share the finishes with you until September but I can share a fabric photo.
These are Island Batik fabrics from their very large Foundations Collection. The reason I chose these, they are available throughout the year. So, if and when you see the runner pattern (not my pattern) available on the AccuQuilt website you can recreate it like I am but in these fabrics.
Here are just a few of the dies sent to me by AccuQuilt to make the runner and a previous project. The GO! Fall Medley Die, GO! Qube Mix & Match 12″ Block.
Above mentioned Island Batik and AccuQuilt products were provided to me free of charge. If you make a purchase I do not earn a commission.
Island Batik August challenge is complete. Start watching for schedule announcement. The August Blog Hop will begin Aug 10th. My day to post is Aug 17th.
Loki was not very happy with me Monday. He received his first bath after a crop dusting incident. Who knew they used helicopters for crop dusting?
To make matters worse, I had to decontaminate myself after giving him his bath and the poor guy was so cold and still wet when I finished.
He did receive some extra cuddle time and it was well received..
Isn’t this about the cutest thing ever, except for the photo of Loki. Anne-Marie of Stories from the Sewing Room shared her adorable Koala.
I’m also in love with this colorful scrappy quilt shared by Quilt Schmilt.
Hi Denise, it sounds like you have your fall projects well in hand. Those shapes look like a lot of fun. Thanks for hosting. Have a good week!
I always stress when there are several projects with close deadlines and I don’t know why. Can’t say I recall ever being late for anything, except my dil’s bridal shower but in my defense the person writing the dates did not have very good penmanship.
The fabrics are very autumn looking, can’t wait to see what you make. Happy stitching!
I don’t think I’ve used any of them prior to this. Wish I hadn’t chosen them because now I want to purchase some, lol.
Hi Denise. What a sweet surprise to see my scrappy quilt featured on your blog post today! Thank you so very much. I know I’m behind on reading my blogs this week. I’m looking forward to seeing what you create with those pretty fabrics. Poor Loki (and you). For me those helicopters flying overhead are hauling water to dump on the wildfire. I welcome them, but I’m sure you and Loki didn’t! 😉
I felt so guilty complaining about the helicopter knowing it was helping you and so many more out west. helicopters are actually more accurate for crop dusting I have read but they are only as accurate as the pilot. Apparently this one was an idiot. Wishing you the best and that the fire stays far away from you.
Don’t feel guilty for having an idiot dump poison on you and your little guy. As you say the machines are more accurate if the operator is skilled 😉
Poor Loki, our Zoey does not like a bath at all. It takes two of us to keep her in the sink in the garage. It is very deep and we are able to control her. However, by the time we are done we are both as soaking wet as much as she is. On Tuesday she has her first hair cut. We are pretty sure that is going to be a dramatic event for her. Some times a dog’s life is stressful.
Lol, he really didn’t mind once we started and I turned off the faucet. We have an old cast iron tub hubby installed for me so there is no way he is getting out of it. I think it was just the urgency of all of it and he sensed my concern and then I left him to take a shower. Hopefully Zoey enjoyed her spa day and will be happy to go back. Can’t wait to see her new do. I’ve been trying to brush Loki a little every day to get him used to it and lay the brush with his toys, that seemed to help get him past the fear.
Thanks for sharing my little koala mini. Sorry about the crop dusting. :/
You’re welcome, it is so cute. A couple weekends ago I went to a quilters estate sale which I never do and purchased a Woodland Animals quilt pattern, I think that’s what it was anyway. That and seeing your cute Koala has renewed my interest in another wild life quilt.
