No overtime so home to help with some work in the garden. Lilly spends time with her nose stuck through the fence looking for the neighbours dog. I have to say it gets a lot less grief than it did a year ago.

It is Bob's birthday later this month, so having asked him what he prefers at the moment, the answer was Minecraft so I am making a Minecraft quilt. Here are the first 2 pieces. Not sure yet whether to make it from 9 on the front with a plain back, or too make it double sided with pictures on both sides. So far I have 8 done. They are fairly quick to sew but rather tedious to cut out.

Had a Facebook message from a friend to ask did I want some quilts and new sheets for my applique, so I jumped at the chance.
The orange/red one will make great owls. All the blues will go brilliant together in some 9 patch squares.
|look forward to using this|
Teenagers can be volatile people. This week Fifi decided to go off the rails a bit, nothing illegal just fairly typical teenage stuff. . For those of you with teenagers you can probably understand, for those of you who have not got that far yet, just wait....Family harmony has been restored with lessons learnt by them all. My daughter did phone and ask me for advice, to which I told her I had made many mistakes in bringing them up and she had to do it her own way, so she did.
She spent a lot of time reading and colouring while she was here. Love the title of her artwork.
Visit day. Stopped at the graveyard to eat lunch. Love the blossom on the tree with a view of the hills.

Second visit of the week to the vet for Lilly. Think she has seen a vet more in the eleven months we have had her than the last dog did in 15 years. Still in pain and trouble swallowing but Wednesdays injection has helped. Need to look at long term pain killing if she goes downhill again. After the vet we took a walk along the beach. Have to say her behaviour in the vet was also much much better. A few little woofs towards other dogs but in general well behaved. Nice to see all our hard work paying off.

Hubby had a nice early (8.30 am) hospital appointment to pick up his hearing aid he was fitted for a few months back. It will take some getting use to. He also got fited for a second one while he was there.
