Weekend Recap-Animals Sewing & Netflix

 Good morning! It's Monday again ugh why can't we have  3 day weekends every week?

This is Trevor's last week of being 17 and my last week of having any minor children! Isn't that crazy? His birthday is Sunday. Not sure what he wants to have for dinner yet :)

Friday night I went for my walk by myself, stopped at Jessica's in the middle and got sucked into a movie they were watching and then walked home in the dark lol. Here is a picture of the river from the levee close to Jessica's house (my mom's cabin that she is renting)

I usually start my walks by taking the dogs around the block. Snookie keeps refusing to walk after a bit. This is her face while I'm carrying her. Smug little bitch!

She needs her nails trimmed. I got one foot done and went about my business and then I looked up and there was BLOOD EVERYWHERE. Apparently I cut one too short. I cannot believe how much blood came out. Poor thing I felt horrible. I'm probably just going to take her to the vet and have them cut the rest, they don't charge that much. She was super upset with me. Usually she is next to me like glue but she stayed in the other room and sat near Scott for the whole evening. This is the closest she got and took off when I talked to her. She forgave me by bedtime though ;)

Now that Buster is gone I can get a few things we couldn't have before. He loved to pee on things so I had to be really careful about what I left on the floor (I had him checked multiple times and he was just an asshole). Anyhow, I ordered the dogs a dog bed. I got the big one so Rusty could sleep in it. Rusty has not slept in it once yet. 

Tubby thought it was rather nice

and Snookie likes it! I think I will order another small one for her for my sewing room/office area

So that was probably a waste but maybe he'll decide he likes it later.

I was doing some cleaning and cleaned out a box of mostly fabric/vintage sheets I had in the shed. I found a pile of scraps in the bottom. I think these were left over from when I did my sister in law's baby shower all those years ago. So I had fun playing with those all weekend.

At first I was just going to make some 4 blocks with 2" squares but then I got that done and decided to start sewing them together (thinking I had enough to make something big enough). They are pretty all sewn together but it was too small to be anything other than a doll blanket. 

While I was debating if I really wanted to cut more squares I cleaned up the rest of the scraps I had on my table.

A few crumb blocks (will add these to my bag of crumb blocks that I have and then make something when I have a lot)

and then some 1" strips, look how cool they are when you put the same fabrics on the same lines. I might have to make some more strips and keep going with these, I really like them. 

and then I finally found all the fabrics that the scraps had come from with the exception of the pink gingham. All I had was a little bit bigger one so I just used that. I had to lay out the part I had done and then replicate the "design". It is now longer but needs to be wider so I will have to add to the sides. Crappy late night picture

I was on a Documentary kick on Netflix while I sewed. It was nice watching documentaries with music. 

I was never into Grateful Dead so this was interesting

Loved this one about Clive Davis. I had no idea who he was. Lots of great music in this one.

Who doesn't like Dolly Parton?

And ended last night with this one about Frank Sinatra. I had no idea about the stuff with Kennedy, him and the mob. Crazy!

I watched another movie too but lost my screen shot. "Big Miracle" with Drew Barrymore about some whales that got stuck in Alaska. That was a pretty good movie too.

ok Guess I should do some work now. Blah. Don't have a whole lot to work on at the moment but I guess I should do what I have haha. Have a good day everyone!

I'm glad you watched the doc if you didn't know who Clive Davis was or Sinatra and the mob connection. I thought everyone knew this. Maybe because everyone I know lived it and we're so fucking old.😉
Your quilts are so pretty. I always love the colors together you chose.

@Peg, my parents weren't very big music people. My mom mostly listened to 50/60's music on cassettes lol. Oh and the Beatles of course she loved the Beatles.
