Birthday Gift & Local Quilt Show

My Dear sister gifted me this wonderful Laurel Burch bag last month (for my birthday). I'll be careful where and when I  use this special bag.  Don't want to wear it out too fast!  It went to the quilt show with me  ;-)

  Laurel Burch is one of my very favorite designers, so sad that she passed a few years ago (2007).

Today there was a local quilt show, over in Sierra Vista where we used to live.  I decided I needed a girls day out and drove the 30 minutes into town.  The show had some wonderful quilts, this string quilt caught my eye.
           
I'm guessing the maker had a lot of strings to bust because the quilt was made with blocks both front and back.


This quilt is "Bears In My Cabin",  recognized it from a quilt magazine.  It's nice to see simpler quilts like this at shows.  They are surely more my style and I'm glad the maker was not intimidated to enter her lovely masterpiece.
The colors look warm, snugly and inviting.

Another small, simple quilt but what great use of color.  This one inspires me to cut up some of my treasured Laurel Burch fabrics.

This past Friday Old Miss Posie had a good bath.  She's dry, warm and looks like a sleeping Angel.  Not so much an Angel during her bath! Good Heavens, she was just awful  this time while in the tub. She was trying to bite my hands the entire bath.  I stuck the cream rinse bottle near her face so she could bite it. But soon there was a tooth hole and the cream was squishing out.
 I do think I'll be looking for a muzzle to put on this girl when she gets so awfully bitey-mouthy. Her face needs clipping, that will be no easy task if she tries to bite.  We understand Posie is fearful since she is so deaf and mostly blind.  The muzzle will help get her clipped quicker, she won't end up chewing a hole in the clipper cord or breaking a tooth.  My hands won't be so full of holes either!

  2. Poor you and poor Posey. Hopefully she will calm down in time.

    Love your bag. It seems to fit you perfectly!

    I love all the quilts, but that bright one really captured my heart. I'll have to see if I can come up with something similar from my stash. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Mickie always gets here before I do - hey Mickie! You're both poodle-friends! Did you know I've met Mickie and her puppers in real life? Have visited her several times!

    Love the quilts - especially the colourful Laurel Burch one. WOW that IS a lot of string blocks in the first quilt - much stash or block busting went on there for sure! Poor Miss Posie - I agree that a muzzle is the right solution - it's for her own good, and it will save her from further stress when she gets that stressed. She's a lucky girl, even if she doesn't know it :)
