I've been working real hard in the Quilt Studio for the past couple of days. Normally, I stick to colors, but a couple days ago, Mom started quilting on a quilt and I could sense that she was unhappy with it. I wooed and wooed and wooed at her until she stopped and took Zim and me on a really cool adventure. The next day, that would be yesterday, she went back into the Studio and sat down to start quilting on it again. I ran into the room and started wooing at her. We had already been on a walk, so she said, "What, Davy? You already let me know the colors were OK!! What is it?" I just stared at the quilt. And wooed. Then she said, "Yeah, I know. I don't like the quilting ... " Then it finally hit her - that's what I was wooing about! Or at least I knew she wasn't happy.
She decided to rip out everything she had done the day before ... so I did this:
|"I'm here for you, if you need me!"|
I'm glad she finally got my message! It was a lot of work, wooing at her incessantly like that!
I amused myself while she did all the ripping ...
|"'Ode To My Kong Toy', by Dave. Yeah... that has a nice ring to it..."|
... then she worked really hard doing the quilting she should have done in the first place! It took a long time (Zim and I took her upstairs for a potty break and a little afternoon snack -- that's how long we worked!) and by close of business ...
|"That is so much better! Quite restful, too!"|
Mom was much happier with it - as was I!
|Always trust your Davy!|
You can't see the quilt thread very well, but I picked it out. Mom's using a variegated lime green. Because I said she could! (Trust me - I'm a Guide Dog for the Color Blind: lime green is the new neutral!)
Mom was going to do a little more work, but Zim popped into the Studio ...
|"You HAVE to come see this!"|
...and said that we had to come see what our buddy Bert had just sent us!!! It was unreal! Seriously!!! Check it out:
I ... I really better not comment. Except to say that Bert is a fellow judge at Mango Minster 2012 and as far as we know he isn't entered into the Adventure Animals category - so it's not like it's a bribe or anything. Because me and Zimmie don't take bribes.
Moving right along, did you know there was a full moon last night? We sent Mom out to take a few shots and here's what she came up with:
It's called the Full Wolf Moon, according to that Farmers' Almanac thing. We didn't hear any wolves, but the local coyotes sure were in full song!
What a full day! I might need an extra nap today!
