The Princess and The Quilt

Good Evening, it's a nice evening here, temps are in the upper 60's. It has started raining and I'm happy for that as my flowers needed a drink. I did water, but there's nothing like a nice rain shower. Relaxing to sit here and listen to the rain and thunder, the lights did flicker a couple of times, but no severe weather.
Thought I would share a few pics with you. Here's Miss Sofie, relaxing by hubby's chair. I think she's wondering where he is.
And here's the Princess! Miss Maile has every toy from the basket drug out, if only she would learn to put them back. But she has fun. They both are really good little dogs. Still a bit puppy, running and tearing through the house in the early evenings. Completely housebroken, the best little lap dogs in the evenings.
And here's a couple of penny mug rugs I finished. I'm working on a larger one. I just love wool pennies!
Do you remember a while back I posted a pic of my flannel quilt top? Well, I took it to the quilt lady to be quilted, she does a Great job!! It will be so warm and cozy in the winter months.
Here it is laid out on the floor. I have one side of the binding pinned and have started the hand stitching. It really shouldn't take too long to finish it.
I wanted to take pics of the flower beds, but didn't get it done before it started raining. I'll try tomorrow. I'll have to get someone to come and water when I get called back to work. Or all that work I put into getting them done will be quickly gone.
I've been visiting some of your blogs, leaving comments here and there. I love seeing what you all have been doing. Be sure to leave me a comment, I love to see you've been here and reading your comments.
Have a Great evening.
Hugs, Bren
