Good Morning Saturday!

 A nice bright winter / spring day.  Snow better start melting today, as we're all so tired of looking at this - -
From our driveway looking south.  Everyone's car dragged in the middle; the plows finally plowed the road on Wednesday afternoon.  Now there is dirt peeking through.  Notice - there aren't even any snowmobile tracks in this snow!  The snowmobilers are tired of winter too!!!!
This is what I've been working on this past week.  A lap quilt for a special girl that is graduating from high school this spring.  Pretty colors, huh?  Hope she'll like it.  Think I'll have someone machine quilt it.  It's too big to do on my little machine, and I don't want to have a messy job.  Sometimes I don't get even stitches.
Odda had an eye infection earlier this week, but now doing fine.  Maybe allergies?  She is now TWO years old.  Our big baby! 

Her coat is nice and shiney (except for the white area), and I can't wait to take her to the groomers for a bath.  We'll wait until all the snow is gone, and things are greening up.  We laugh at her because she walks around puddles, mud and the brown grassey areas.  She finds her way walking on the snow - well soon that should all be gone.  Hooch doesn't care where he walks.  We have towels at each doorway to wipe them dry.   
Amanda with Odda when we brought her home!   
Hope you all have a great weekend.

Odda is beautiful and wow, how she has grown!

I hope your snow melts very soon.

That is such a pretty quilt you have made. Someone is very lucky to receive such a nice graduation gift.

Enjoy your Saturday.

Your quilt is gorgeous. I'm jealous. We're sick of snow in Wisconsin too! I saw my first robin today, that's a good sign.

That quilt is pretty. I really like the colors.

Odda is such a special girl. She looks so lovable. I think it is funny that she avoids the mud and puddles - smart girl. And Hooch - just like a guy to tromp right through it.

Odda's feet looked as big when you brought her home as they are now! - - - glad she is doing better.
I LOVE the colors in the quilt. Thanks for sharing it with us.

My favorite dogs at all the shows, Westminster, Eukenuba, is always the Bernese Mountain dog. SO REGAL!!!

Therefore, I have a Maltese. lol. But he was the one that crawled up to me the day a puppy mill got shut down. He was three years old and given up for "dead by midnight". I couldn't allow him to die without feeling his first love at the hands of a human. Six hours of being held, he now has a serious case of permanent puppy love for me and is four years old.
