Amber heads up the Security Detail. She always positions herself to where she can keep an eye on everyone - pup and biped alike! In this picture from Friday...
it looks like she has also chosen a good spot for Mom to lay out the quilt blocks. Here's the start of the process:
Amber was still watching over all of us, AND was guarding the quilt blocks! Mom told her not to bother moving, so she didn't. Ha roo roo roo!
On Saturday, Am positioned herself near the stairs, where she could guard Mom and the entrance to the Library. I came in, plopped myself down, and tried to see what Mom was working on. I like to think of myself as the Quality Control Officer or something. Nothing gets past me!
Whatcha got, Mom? Is that what Dave's helping you pull fabrics for? Ohh, I like that camo one! What else do you have over there?
Then I walked around to the other side of the room to check everything out.
Yeah... I really like this one, Mom. Is it for me?
She said she'd think about it. Cool!
And here's how far we got with the blocks as of yesterday. They aren't sewn together yet, but the blocks themselves are done. Ha roo!
This isn't how they'll be laid out in the long run. Mom asked her quilt group if they liked it this way (sort of grouped by the fabrics on the outer edges of each block...) or if she should mix them up. Nikki's mom said she'd go for mixing the colors up more and asked what Dave thought. :) Dave wanted Mom to mix them up, too - so they're going to do more of a random layout. Nikki's mom is smart to seek advice from Dave! Ha roooo!
When the top is finally pieced, we'll post a picture.
Play bows, everypup!
