Woodland quilting and Twinkler top done

OH  EM GEE!!!!

Sparrows Quilting
I just don't know what more to say other than that!  Kathy Bradbury has outdone herself quilting inside the appliqued motifs.  The sparrows seem to just come alive - like they are ready to just pop off the quilt and fly around, and the leaves have dimension now... I wish I could see more of the quilt, but that will have to wait... I CAN'T wait, I have goosebumps just thinking about it!

Sigh... I'm not good at waiting, I am all about instant gratification... and it's almost painful to have to wait...

Anyway.

I also finished my Twinklers top:

I didn't like that one orange square near the top right corner so I did take it out and replace it with a different square of a more muted color.  I didn't take another picture though.  Suffice it to say the new square doesn't make your eye go right to it like that bright orange does.  All in all, I'm happy with it, and it will make a nice baby quilt the next time I need one for something, all I will have to do is quilt it.  In the meantime, it will be added to my pile of UFOs.

On a bright note, we took our new dog, Maggie, to the dog park tonight.  While we are unsure of her aggression level with other dogs, we did not take her inside, but we did walk her up and down along the fence and she did really well, only barking a few times, and no so much growling as last week.  Perhaps next week we can even try letting her in the dog park and see how she does, perhaps with a muzzle on to start, just to be safe.  I would love it if she were able to run and play with other dogs.  I think it would make her happy to be able to engage with the other doggies.  I know it would make me happy to get her some good exercise that -I- don't have to engage in as well... lol...
