Saturday Morning!

This post is part of a campaign sponsored by the dog training collar store.

Good morning, Everybuddy.  This is our new Saturday Morning blog and we are looking forward to a once-a-week blog.  We still read yours every day.

On Friday, we took a hike to our library and got a special knitting book for me with a super baby cap in it, for those of you who are knitters, this is a cap that Stephanie Pearl McFee, (The Knitting Harlot) has made and says its the very best for babies.  Since our friends are having one in six weeks or so, we want to knit a little for the little gent.
Stella and I had the first nice walk too. Nice sunshine! The streets were pretty clear and not too much ice around, still lots of snow though on the sidewalks.  Stella was very  happy to find lots of GRASS sticking up on the boulevards and she had a good time poking around in it.  This is where I get straight As on being a Dog Mom, I just let her take her time, sniffing and scratching away at it.
    I am starting a new quilt, I had the pattern in my mind I wanted to use, some new fabrics along with old ones.  THEN I was looking at fabrics stored  in my Upper Room when I found one that changed everything, it was everything I love in a fabric, wonderful color, movement, and it changed everything.  It will be the perfect center  in a Log Cabin and I am very excited to start it.  This 'perfect' fabric is one that I don't even remember buying, and I think about where I might have bought it, and am eager to send a piece to Mary, my best pal who is a head and shoulders better than me, quilter.  She will laugh and love it too.  I will have a block or two to show you next Saturday, will that bring you back?  I will look forward to seeing you and will try to get some new pictures.

All the best to you for a great weekend and good new week!

Jo, Stella and Zkhat


  1. Oh yes I love that bit about being a "perfect dog Mom". So important to recognise our need to just sniff and scratch at stuff in our own time.

    Also, I am so pleased to hear that Jo is knitting something useful. Can you believe that an old friend of Gail recently sent her a kit for knitting a bicycle saddle cover, and, for the first time in quarter of a century, she actually picked up some knitting needle and knitted this ridiculous item! I must post a picture of it some time. My fear is that she will move on to trying to knit something for me...

    Have a great week, and we look forward to seeing how the quilt develops.

    Toodle pip!

    1. Oh, Bertie! Please tell Gail I have a cute book of doggie sweaters that she would probably love to knit for you, Sweet Boy!

      I'll send it right over if she would like to borrow it for a year or two!

  2. Happy knitting and quilting. We look forward to seeing how it looks. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. I love hand made quilts. I can make small ones but I'd like to take a quilting class and learn to make those pretty ones. I love patchwork.

  4. We'd be back with or without a pretty quilt block, but Mom wants to see that surprise fabric. She gets very happy when she finds something that she has forgotten about. It's like getting a present for no reason.

  7. Hello Friends!! You've had a good and busy week!! Same with us, except I don't have a lot to show for it! :-) I love that you're making time for a project, and I'll look forward to seeing how it's going next week!!

  8. Oh Stella! You got to walk to the library! How great to get out and about! We're trying to do that now, if mom would get off of the computer!! Have a happy week!

  9. Phantom says he would love to find some green grass in the yard - he really likes it when his tummy is off. But we all want to keep our snow too - maybe a blade here or there would be OK.

    We can't wait to see the baby cap and the surprise fabric.

Mum is green with jelly cause she is pretty useless at those crafty things. Take care and hope your weekend was grreat. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  12. Yay for straight A's as a dog mom! I rarely get a report card like that!

    I'll be back to see that square. I know about your and Mary's talent first hand so it'll be beautiful - I'm sure of it!

  13. They do that all the time over here... they even do that in our high streets in towns.. one day there is a shop you know and the next.. BAM.. it's gone.
    I hate it when they move hair products in supermarkets... I never wear my glasses out and I have so much hair conditioner when I really thought I was buying hair shampoo... hum :-)
    :-) I love the thought of a new quilt... :-) x x x
