Who's Blackmailing Who

It's meant to be me blackmailing him but I think it may well be the other way round. The only way I could get him to take his medicine was to put it in chicken and rice, which I had to cook for him. As he was clearly feeling better I thought he could go back onto proper dog food. How wrong could I be! Yesterday morning I put his medicine in his dog food and with true Sparky attitude he didn't eat it. He didn't eat all day. So at 7:30 last night I cooked some more chicken and rice put it in his bowl with the medicine and he ate it!

When he had finished this is the look I got. What do you think he is trying to say?

This is as far as I have got with the wall hanging. I have decided to leave it alone for a while have a think and see what happens.

I have been working on this quilt for a few months now and it's very nearly finished. All I've got to do is two bindings. It's such a pretty quilt.

We had a delivery at the shop on Monday and inside one of the big boxes was some of these little boxes.

Inside the little box is 320 two and a half inch squares. They are so cute you can't help but pick them up and feel them, flick through them and stroke them. If you love fabric you will understand.

Anyway, feelings put to one side I set about using them.

I cut 38 one inch hexagons out of freezer paper.

Decided which squares I was going to use and that wasn't an easy decision.

Then I ironed the freezer paper hexagons onto my chosen squares ready for the next step.

Glad to see Sparky is looking a little more "sparky"... he's definitely the boss! I can't believe you cut out all those hexegons.

Sparky says "Im the boss round here and dont forget it!" Hope you enjoy tacking all the hexagons!

love the look of the little squares, I might be tempted to drop by and buy one, after visiting with my daughter and with her winning your recent prize, I am tempted to try quilting for myself.. Might see you soon
