Sad Week

 This week we had to put down this sweet pound puppy that stole our hearts 17 years ago.  Tasha was the best dog we have ever had.  She got cancer and the last 10 months we have been trying to make her better.  But this week she was struggling to breath.  So it was time.

We already miss our Tasha.

I did finally make some rainbow blocks.  I only have two more house blocks to make to get caught up.    I hope to sew some more rainbow blocks today.

Reds, Piggy Bank, and More

This little sweetheart was visiting grandma for a week and now she has went home.  We went to the zoo.  We also taught her to like pumpkin blossoms.  

I have fallen off the Rainbow challenge.  Over at SOSCRAPPY there is a monthly rainbow challenge and July is RED.  I have made one block with some red and a pillowcase with some red.  I don't know if that really counts for red in July but I am going to link up.

Val's Quilting Studio is having a piggy bank saving challenge.  Now I don't have a pretty piggy bank but I decide to join in.  I always save change.  So first thing I did was count what I had in the jar.  I am going to buy rotary blades, 505 spray, and thread with my savings.
 There was $88.00 in the jar.

This is the change I am starting with.

I am working on this quilt for a young girl who will be a doctor in August.
 I also made a taggie blanket.  It is for a little brother of the two who will receive the pillowcases.
Have a great week.
