Pugs 'n Roses

I have been doing a little sewing and a lot of cutting this week. Birthday blocks are due for a major blow-out March celebration with Pat and Sally tomorrow. I also owed blocks to Jo Ann E. (sorry Jo) from last month. Sorry, no photos of the birthday blocks because they are supposed to be a SURPRISE for the recipient, even though we all pick our own color-ways. You can read more about our birthday block swap here. I also finished cutting out my strips for our upcoming black and white strip swap. Ten of us are swapping, so I will get 90 new black and white strips for an upcoming project.

I'm not sure where the rest of the week went, but here are some photos of my darling boys to brighten your weekend.

Two of my favorite things, pugs and quilts. This is LarryPug snoozing on an
ancient log cabin quilt that I made with Charlotte Angotti about 20 years ago.

My husband, who is a talented amateur photographer, always urges me to get low and close when photographing the pugs. Here is a progression of LarryPug and Elvis that I took a couple of nights ago. I think you'll agree with him.
I'm sitting at the kitchen table eating dinner. These two were hoping for a handout.
Romeo likes to sit behind my chair next to the refrigerator.

I love my vinyl floorcloth, still looking pretty and very dog proof
after many years. However, my kitchen floor definitely needs to be refinished.

Closest and cutest!

My house is full of roses, courtesy of my husband (Valentine's Day and our anniversary six days later).

Hope you are having a great weekend! Happy Birthday Terri!

Pugs and kisses,


  1. Awe such cute faces. The pugs! Gorgeous roses.

  2. All great pictures but I think Larry on the quilt is my favorite. What a little sweetie he is!
