Hello All

What the heck is going on?  I don't blog for a month or so and now that I want to, either my computer or Blogger is having a problem.  I restored my computer back to a previous setpoint.  Hopefully this will be the end of the problem.  Stay tuned.

So what have I been up to...not much.  I've been walking a few times a week with a new walking buddy, Diana.  She has a 4 year old dog very similar in look and size as Bailey.  Her dog, Spirit has had quite a bit of training so we're working on sit, down, stay, wait and walking nicely on a leash.  Bailey is making good progress.  At some point I'll probably enroll him in classes but for now these commands are enough to keep him occupied.  I took him a few weeks ago to a puppy play date at a local pet care site but he was pretty afraid of the other small dogs/puppies.  There were only five there but one was a pretty active terrier who chased him around and of course the more Bailey ran, the more the dog chased him.  We'll have to try again at some point but for now, we're working on meeting dogs on our walking route.  Bailey is 8 months old now.

I did a little sewing (in the sewing room) the other day.  I finally got around to putting up a curtain.  It's one that I'd made in my other apartment with the front side brown and back side green.  For this apartment In pinned some paper-pieced blocks to the green side and put it up.  Notice I said I pinned them.  I did not sew them.  I lost interest pretty quickly. 

 I haven't used the sewing room a lot since moving here but it's nice to have just the same.  I've been working on my hexie quilt and crocheting a dresser doily.  Photos later.

I was armchair shopping a few weeks ago and came across a bedspread and curtain set that was just so pretty and feminine, I had to have it.  It's the first time since I was eight years old that I had a store bought matching set.  I love it.  My new bedroom is large enough that I could have the bed on an angle to add interest.  I've spent a lot of time passing by the room just to admire it.

I hope all is well with everyone.  Even though I haven't been blogging, I have been keeping up with reading all your blogs.  

Hope you have a good day.
