If a dog were your teacher

If a dog were your teacher 
These are some of the lessons you might learn... 

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them 
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride 
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face 
to be pure ecstasy 

When it's in your best interest 
practice obedience 
Let others know when they've invaded your territory 
Take naps and stretch before rising 
Run romp and play daily 

Thrive on attention and let people touch you 
Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do 
On warm days stop to lie on your back on the grass 
On hot days drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree 
When you're happy dance around and wag your entire body 

No matter how often you're scolded 
don't buy into the guilt thing and pout 
run right back and make friends 

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk 
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm 
Stop when you have had enough 
Be loyal 
Never pretend to be something you're not 

If what you want lies buried 
dig until you find it 
When someone is having a bad day 
be silent ..... 
...sit close by. 

...and nuzzle them gently.

Trying to get back on track

I have been down and not doing anything sewing related since my mom past, just can't get in the mood. I think it's time now to crawl from that rock and do something I love. I signed up for Fernhill button club by Lynette Anderson and just received my first block and really excited to begin. I also have to finish my Orca Bay quilt for my son and I have a lot of unfinished tops I really want to get finished this year.

Is it summer already?

Well the holidays are over so maybe it's about time I write something new before the summer is upon us. It's been an amazing January with my daughter and now that she is in UK again I miss her. I haven't done any sewing since I had to go to Iceland and now that my sister and her hubby are coming to visit I will wait until they are gone to carry on with the Orca Bay.
