I also tested the puppy block for Joanne at Canuck Quilter. I have very limited time for sewing and blogging over the next couple of weeks, so I couldn't do the entire baby quilt for her, but she's got several testers for the owl and ducky versions, such a cute quilt. She writes great patterns; hope you check out some of them on her blog link, and maybe pick up a copy of this pattern once it is available!
I was thinking Naala, aka Rottweiler when I did this one. Pretty cute, huh? It might end up in a cushion or something for Brady. He loves dogs. The mum that the puppy is resting against is one that comes back each year, such a vibrant burgundy-red! It survived a recent transplant quite nicely.
The glorious Fall weather continues: I leave the house five times a week at 5:45 am for yoga, either doing or teaching, and I've only had to scrape the windshield once. That was such an ever-so-light scrape, as the frost was just a touch. All our flowers and all the flowers in town (well those who haven't been rather goofy IMHO and yanked them out) are flourishing:
So many roses in town are still thriving, blooming.

Back to our American neighbours on their Election Day, which will undoubtedly affect us, not to mention the rest of the planet. We were on the north side of the Detroit River last week. The drive along Jefferson Avenue to Dayna's never disappoints; why take the freeway when you can revel at the jaw-dropping mansions on one side of the road, and the jaw-dropping views of Lake St. Clair on the other? And then, there's the stunning colours...
The photo does not come close to doing the colours justice, but you get the idea. I hope all will be well with them. Our two countries are so very similar in many ways, but so very different in others. Yet we live side by side pretty amicably. Would that all different cultures could do so in peace and understanding. Variety is the spice of life, as they say; why should everyone be all virtual clones of each other, and look and act the same? Wouldn't quilts be pretty boring if all the millions of them on this planet were one colour and all the same shades or tones of that colour?
Tolerance, cooperation, and we, like the fabrics in our quilts, can all play nicely together on the quilting frame. That is my own humble opinion and hope for our world.
