Four years ago today I started blogging! It was one of the best decisions I ever made and has turned into a very enjoyable pastime. Man, that makes me sound old....you can read my first post HERE. I remember after I posted it changing things no less than 5 times, adding things and taking things out. It was only 1 paragraph long!
So instead of spending the day sewing I spent it watering the sod. It took almost 2 1/2 hrs to do the job. I am scared to death of being the one who kills it! I am taking my job seriously.
After the watering I had to go to the grocery store because we were out of everything. We ate very bad over the weekend, lots of crap and not healthy. I felt it yesterday and today.

Most of you may not know I am not a huge animal person. We never had pets growing up and my kids had fish and outside bunnies. I know very adventurous....Some of you probably are animal people and you will love this article. A friend of ours is a canine cop and will be retiring soon. He is still young and wants to have another "job". He will be working with dogs to sniff out cancer (ovarian cancer is on the list)and other medical conditions, how amazing is that. We had heard about dogs that sniff out blood sugar changes in diabetics but they are super expensive $10,000!
If you have ever seen a real police dog, it would scare the living daylights out of you. I never, ever, ever would like to be chased and caught by one of them. The ones I have seem are pure German Shepherds from Germany.
The article is in Philadelphia magazine. I also want to read this article on college and see the Fall Art preview...no they are not paying me and no this is not the giveaway....
A lot of people liked this quilt. It is already promised to my guild so I can't give it away. I will make another one for the winner of the giveaway, using whatever colors you like. Now mind you I don't have any reproductions or dark traditional colors. My palette is bright with clear colors, it's going to look more contemporary than traditional......I'm just saying. Think pink, blue, green, yellow, orange, aqua, red or black.....not really purple or brown.
So leave me a comment and tell me what is your favorite thing about Fall and be sure to tell me what color you want for a quilt should you win. The size of the quilt will be around 18 x 18 with a white background.
Good luck, I will pick the winner this Friday 9/5. This is open to everyone in the US or elsewhere.
