But as long as we're talking Dog Days, here's my favorite dog -- look how big he's getting! He's his daddy's best friend, and still fancies himself a lap dog, though that particular thinking will need to be revised soon. I wish I knew how to get that reflection out of his eyes. It doesn't suit him. He's had black as well as honey-colored freckles pop out at the rate of one or two per day for the past few weeks, and has begun to grow some fringe on his arms and chest. Oh, he's going to be gorgeous, Lord Hazelmere of Blackberry is!
Old Country Store website and ordered some. I think that was yesterday. Or possibly Tuesday. Not sure. Anyway, it came today already! OCS's price for French General was quite a bit less expensive per yard than Hancock's of Paducah's. Just sayin'.
Anyway, while I was waiting for the shipment to arrive, I finally cut into the batik strips I'd bought from Wanda ages ago. The blocks came together so quickly, and I'm liking this effort pretty much. Needs another vertical row yet. It's the same design as "We The Purple" was. It seemed like the colors were reflective of autumn and I was thinking of calling it "November Morn," but this afternoon, as the temperature reached the 90s yet again, I thought it might really be about the heat of July, 2010, and oughta be named "Dog Days."
