That's right you hear me correctly I said EEEEKKKK. Here's the dealio. I was getting ready to eat my dinner and thought I should feed the dog so she wouldn't pester me while I was eating. I went out to the garage and scooped up some of her dog food from the plastic bin I keep it in. I dumped the cup of food into her bowl, all the while looking down to make sure the food poured into the bowl and what do I see in the bowl??? A little mousie looking up at me with that WTH just happened to me? look in it's eyes. Both of us being taken unaware, the mousie bolted into my kitchen and between 2 cupboards that have a space between them. I'm looking around for one of my FIVE cats for one of the 2 that are actual mousers. I spy one, Hallie so I snatch her up and plop her in the kitchen. Now she is giving me the WTH look as she was sound asleep on a chair in the other room when I rudely snatched her from her sleep! She spies the mousie and a chase ensues. She catches the mouse but as cats are wont to do she plays with it. It runs back into the same crack and she is staring it down. Until big dumb dog runs into the kitchen to be included in this amazingly fun activity. Get out of here you stupid dog now you have chased the cat away! *SIGH*. Now the cat is nowhere to be found. Mousie runs into my family room into various places until the second mouser, Autumn, appears for another round of cat and mouse. Only to be interrupted by the big dumb dog yet again. "Go upstairs, you stupid dog!" DS takes her to his room. OK, now there are ZERO mousers around except me and DH. He corners it and I opened the patio door and WE herd said mousie outside. WHEW!! That was WAYYYYY too much excitement for one night!
On to quilty content, ok? So I finally took a photo of some of the coins for the Halloween coin quilt. I have them pinned together in a specific order so you can just see one row. I'm kind of excited to finish it.
I plan to sash it in black and may have LTW quilt it in orange, or maybe I'll be dull and have her do black. Not sure yet.
Now on to another totally unrelated but none the less still quilty bit. I got home from Cori's yesterday ad I realized that I already had a Bliss layer cake so I emailed her asking if I could trade it for a Dream ON JR. No problem. I was hopping all around blogland yesterday when I happened upon this, over at Ryan's blog. It got my creative juices flowing. I've has a "plus" quilt on my radar for some time. I also need to make a few baby quilts, so hmmm it was a "You've got peanut butter on my chocolate." "Hey, you've got chocolate on my peanut butter" moment. Why not try this pattern? It uses only a charm pack and one yard of fabric for the top. Everyone seems to be having boys around here so what CP can I get that would work for a boy? This one.
I realize it is not the best photo but I think the green and gray combo is so popular right now. I will be using a Kona gray for the plus part. I will keep you posted. I'm very excited to begin this one too. I think this combo will be stunning.
I have exercise class tonight (and DD2 may be joining me), then I hope to be able to do some sewing. Sat is weigh in, class, shower, LTW's and then the BIG game. MSU vs U of M. NOTHING will keep me from watching that game. We beat them the last 2 years. Our coach just had a heart attack at the beginning of the season, right after the Notre Dame game. Keep your fingers crossed. It's gonna be a good one!
