I thought I had posted earlier in the week, but it seems I was wrong. (It's possible I dreamed it...)
Here's the little rascal that has sucked up so much of my time lately -
Her name is Chuckles, and she's the sole survivor of a litter of fifteen. This photo is the best I could get of her - it's blurry because she Never. Stops. Moving. (She's playing with a ball here, which is her second favorite thing to do. Eating is her very favorite thing, of course.)
The only sewing I've managed to squeeze in is finishing the back for the Twinkle quilt. I laid it out on the big dining table to get it ready to baste.
I had a bunch of triangles left over, so I've used them to piece a strip for the back. This was partly for interest, and partly so I wouldn't have to drive myself crazy piecing short narrow bits together to make the backing wide enough. (I had two 3.5 yard cuts of this pretty striped fabric, which I got long before the top was finished, thinking it would be plenty. Optimism continually bites me on the butt.)
I had the back laid out on the table and was smoothing it and taping it down, when it dawned on me that it should be upside down.
Finally, after much wrangling and starting over (because I realized that I was going to have to lay it out with the width of the quilt running the long way on the table because ginormous table isn't ginormous enough for ginormous quilt), I started pinning.
Hopefully the quilting can commence in the next couple of days. Yay!
