Every evening this is the game that is played between Arlo & The Bearded One. Arlo really thinks that he needs to pre-wash all the dishes that are being loaded in the dishwasher. The Bearded One thinks otherwise. He will chase Arlo out of the kitchen but Arlo simply loops around the island and comes back in behind his back. When he's really emboldened he actually climbs into the dishwasher. The Bearded One will turn back to the dishwasher and chase Arlo out. And so the game goes, every night.
And, for those of you still awaiting spring, here's a little bit for your enjoyment. This is my little flowering plum tree. The 74 degree weather last weekend has encouraged everything to burst into bloom. As much as I love spring, it doesn't like me. My allergies have gone haywire.

This is a close up of the quilting on Hip 2B Green. I used Suzanne Earley's Meandering Magic and did my own version of "funky ferns" or palm like meandering. It's a little hard to see because of the busy-ness of the fabrics. Here's a shot of the backside that gives a slightly better idea. I'll be working on the bindng tonite while watching the final "ER".Next up are two pillowcases. I purchased them as kits at the QA show in Monroe a couple weeks ago. The fabric is a new line with hollyhocks. I would have bought the kit for a wallhanging but Janet snagged the last one! That'll teach me. Next time I'm out with Janet I really need to be on my toes and quicker to grab something that appeals to me. She also managed to beat me to a lovely pink & brown piece in another booth when we were looking for fabrics for the Urban Hobo Bag.
