This week has been a busy one.
We celebrate a lot of birthday is our family during the month of October. Joe & Lacey celebrated back to back this week.
For Lacey's birthday she went musky fishing with her dad up in Alexandria. They took "little b" with them for her first experience out on the waters. (She's a typically a bird dog)
Upon arriving at the lake, they noticed the docks had been pulled out. They got the boat and trailer in the water, helped little B get in, and pushed it out off the trailer only to find out that as Lacey tugged on the rope it broke, sending her falling flat on her butt with the long end of the rope in her hand, a little dog slowly floating out to sea. Luckily dad had quick reactions and waded into the cold water to get the boat before it floated too far out. Upon regaining their composure after a good hard laugh at what just happened, they got things going and had a wonderful day. Little B was quite nervous (do you blame her?) after that and spent most of her day pacing from Lacey to dad and "talking" the whole time.
We decided she might have fun getting to play fetch in the water in a wooded area with no homes and shallow water. Little b LOVES to play, especially when it involves water!!
Anyways. . .back to quilting
In our last post (or two) ago we showed Abbott's Hope pattern.
We decided we needed to see one that didn't have snowflakes on it, so we used the new fabrics by Whimsicals in a new table topper. This really is a quick and quite fun pattern to piece together.
Lacey has really enjoyed working with Whimsicals fabrics this week and has spent most of her time working with a holiday panel and side wall hanging projects.
This has a really cool rick-rack effect when you step away from it.
