Design Wall Monday - July 2, 2018

July 4th is Wednesday, and we are at the cabin, where our peaceful sleep is interrupted by firecrackers going off - probably for all this week.  As I get older, I enjoy fireworks less and less.  But I am happy to celebrate our independence as a country.

Here is a peaceful picture of sunset over Lake Michigan:

Maybe the noise will subside and things will be peaceful around here in another week or so.  Puppy Penny Lane, hasn't reacted to the noise, which is great.

Quilting?  Sadly, not anything this week, but I intend to work on the second square of redwork chickens.  Thanks for all of your input!  I agree with those who said you can never have enough chickens.  Also the idea of little children looking for the two squares that are identical will be a fun game to play when the quilt is finished.

So nothing to show this week, as I was working on other things.  Penny Lane has settled into what is expected of her around here, and has reluctantly agreed not to chew on my hands.  Unless she forgets....

She was eating so quickly that some of you suggested a special bowl to help slow her down.  I searched on the internet, and found a tip that just turning her bowl upside down and putting the food in the indented circle around the outside works.  She has to work to get the food out of the indentation, and while it takes her longer to eat, I think she actually chews some of it!  I give her 1/4 cup of food, wait until that is gone and then repeat again for two more times.  Here's a picture off the internet of the concept of the upside down bowl, except Penny's bowl has a narrower space for the food - makes her work even harder to get it quickly.

She is 20 pounds now, and her growth is amazing.  But I could talk about Penny all day - you can see why I haven't been productive in the quilting department.

Happy 4th of July to all the American bloggers out there.  I hope you get more done that I have this week.  Thanks for linking with Design Wall Monday!
