Day 8: 31 Day Blog Challenge

Random picture of the day: French mints book

It's Saturday! Yesterday, the sun finally came out, and I walked downstairs to this scene. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to come down the stairs and see all these beautiful textiles.  At the front is the Droid quilt. I was sewing on the binding, and came up short so wasn't finished.  It does explain why the leftover fabric was still with the quilt.

The quilt on the wall is the Simple Squares quilt. I really like all the happy fall colors. Even though at first, I was regretting not working harder on the placement of the fabrics, now I really like the fact that it makes your eyes move from fabric to fabric around the quilt.

On the couch is the Colonial Bricks quilt.  This one was supposed to be another quick and easy quilt, but I keep getting interrupted and distracted, and have to re-think how the rows are arranged.  I didn't worry too much about fabric placement on it either, but I do want to make sure all of one type of color doesn't wind up being on one side of the quilt.

One the table is an Indian Kantha quilt I got from Tuesday morning. It makes me happy to see it.

And of course, there is Zeus who was barking like he does every morning because he is excited that it is time to go on a walk. It's his favorite time of the day.

It's always nice to see the quilts we make in use. I smile every time My Guy is covered up with his coffee cup quilt.

Such a nice cheery, cozy living room! Do you know, our new dog isn't happy about going for a morning walk! He is like a teenager who doesn't want to get up for school when his mom calls him! It's the first time I've had a dog that isn't excited about a morning walk!
