So, I spend more time indoors, and in my sewing room especially. I love how the different seasons of New England bring with them different activities. Easy season looks, feels and acts differently, and so do we humans who change with the seasons.
In my sewing room, I continue to finish off Paul's Batik quilt. I have one border on and am making 4 patches for the second border.

I had a BIG finish this week, completing "Paperchains," a x stitch design by Tams Creations. My next project is on it's way, it will be Magic Carpet by Tams Creations. I am anxious to get started on that.
I have set aside my knitting of a chevron afghan for myself to knit a sweater for a doggy friend. She's light coated and freezing. This 100% Cascade Superwash sweater should help.
And, of course, along with all these crafts comes the care, feeding, loving, training and joy of living with 4 dogs and 2 cats. One of the 4 dogs is Anna's baby Lila, who accompanied her on her move from California to New England. They are living with us until they land their career job and apartment. Although I'm not nuts about puppies, I am nuts about Lila, and am enjoying helping to train her to be a dog with civilized house manners, without squashing her joy in the process. She gives us a lot of laughs and is a great addition to the pack. She and Bella especially love to wrestle and run together.
