I have been working exclusively on Swan Lake since I had a class on Friday. I am about 1/5th of the way through making hexagon flowers and today decided I would lay them out on one of the panels. I am slowly realising there is a lot more to this quilt than first meets the eye.
I have also fallen in love with a new colour - Black!!! I have always loved black clothing because it makes me look thinner but now I want to use it in all my quilts. At class on Friday, Sarah had gathered some blacks together for her quilt. They looked fantastic so I had to get some too. Once I made one hexagon flower, that was it. I think black will be the new brown for me as far as quilts go.
This is only part of the mess I made today!
Sunday saw the annual event of Paws in the Park. It is run by the local council. Stalls are all around the park with everything from dog grooming to microchipping and special doggie treats. They have obedience and flyball demonstrations and an obstacle course for your dog to try. The weather wasn't the best but lots of people and their dogs still came.
This is the third year I have taken Buddy and he loves it! There are so many dogs, big ones, little ones, strange looking ones and oh the smells!!!!! This is the best photo I could get of him. There was just too much for him to investigate. At least I got a shot of his bandana - have to dress him up for a big occasion such as this!
