Barn quilt and Mr Patches
I know that I told you about my barn quilt that Mom bought for us at Country Threads - it is so awesome. By the time I got home from the Galena show, DH already had it put up. It is actually on our garage - and I love it there!
I really want to make a quilt with this same pattern - the one that I bought from Country Threads, but I will change it a little. One more thing on the LONG list of "want-to-dos"!
You will remember that our 17th anniversary was when I was in Galena - well, when I got home, DH had a little surprise for me...isn't he cute?
I don't know if you've seen these before - it is by Jim Shore, and I think he said he bought it at Lowe's - so cute! You might have to enlarge the picture to see the patchwork on his bibs. We decided that he looked cute outside the front door. Boomer, did not think so! OH MY!!! When Boomer first spotted Mr. Patches, he went ballistic! He was barking and carrying on out there. When we opened the front door (to make fun of him for being a dork) he was barking and GROWLING! I have never heard him growl before. It was hilarious. Then out came Sophie (our border collie) and she was barking and being all ferocious! Too funny. Glad to see that they can be guard dogs on occasion. It took a couple of days before Boomer moved on and ignored Mr. Patches. What a goof.
