I know, I know.....

I know I should be working on my parts for my September retreat. I know I should be cutting stuff for the three nun's quilts I've committed to for delivery by Christmas. I plan on working on those on our Colorado trip which is coming up in a couple of weeks, and all I've done is move that fabric around on the table. I know I should be doing anything other than playing with my dogz.

I just started pulling fabric to take with me for other stuff, and I just couldn't stop playing with the dogz. My trainer is going to have her first baby the first part of November, and these just called to me. Since she and her husband are very untraditional, I thought these would be perfect for their little boy to be.


And oh yes, Las Vegas was wonderful! I had a watsu massage, and won enough on the slots to pay for a day in the spa. Cirque du Soleil was great, and as the theater was in the round, we sat right at the stage edge - PERFECT!! Mama Mia was fun, also, even though we had seen the show before, we still laughed and sang and danced in our seats. Click on the Las Vegas button for some of the show we saw.

Now, we are home just in time to take my grandkids that arrived from WA shopping for school clothes. I had forgotten how tiring it is to get haircuts, go to the dentist, get a school physical, register for school, find gym clothes that fit (wahhhh), and get all the appropriate school supplies and clothes. They start school this Thursday, and I think I have it all done. My son even gave me a big hug this afternoon for everything that I've done in short order for him. Here are the girls with my Mom when we went to visit her today. She hasn't seen these girls for about 7 years, and she was so happy to get to hug them both.

And last, you've heard about Koi or goldfish growing as big as the pond or bowl they are put into? I wonder if we had not had this big 19" diameter bowl, would Clyde have gotten so big? Other cats like their fuzzy beds, and their cat hammocks and cat trees....my cats? Give them a hard, cold bowl and they are quite happy!

Oh, funny!

I love the cat in the bowl. Mine are the same way about the sink. Maybe it's the smoothness of it?

Aww Those dogz are great! But the cat in a glass bowl in priceless! (Especially the "What?" look in his/her face!)

Your "Dogz" are perfect, Sharon!!! Love your fabric choices!

Your granddaughters are adorable...what cute smiles. Glad you're their Gram! How nice they're getting to know their Great Gram too.

When we had a housecat...she loved our bathroom sink. What a cute picture of Clyde...he's got great taste in artistic bowls!

And what ADORABLE girls! Isn't getting ready for school work! I"m glad I"m almost done for my 4 this year! wheh! And now that 2 of them are in college it is even harder! More "things" that are more expensive - you have to live comfortably in the apartment you know mom!!! :)

I'm glad you had a good time in Vegas, Sharon. One should, when one is running away. =)

The dogs are wonderful. I'd want to work on them instead of other things, too.

Those dogs are so much fun. You did a great job picking fabrics - I love those eyes. Now wonder you don't want to work on anything else.
