It's been far too long since I've blogged. Mojo is thankfully back. What's new? Way too much to put into one post so I'll hit a few bits per post. Here's a few highlights:
Dawn N. and I pieced this quilt top for our dear friend Vivienne for her incredible Muskoka log home cottage we get to visit and enjoy annually. We'll machine quilt it asap.
This suv replaces Don's stolen truck and tools. Only 3 years old and a well maintained lease return. Big enough for all of us, the dogs, stuff and gutsy enough to do some serious towing. Yup, the prerequisite 4-wheel package to deal with Canadian winters. It's not the work horse truck he needs, but more of a multi-purpose family vehicle.
There's been knitting, quite a bit actually. This beauty is an even nicer Crest of the Wave scarf than the first also knit with divine Plucky Knitter fingering from the oh so talented Sarah. I enjoyed knitting this pattern so much that I have to say there will be more, several more. Definitely even one for myself. :) This one is going off in the mail tomorrow. Someone, watch your mailbox, not sayin' who....
And last for today is this puppy. Potentially ours? Remains to be seen. Nicole and I will be taking a trip to Quebec next week to meet and evaluate a litter of Standard Poodle puppies and if there's a girl in there that suits us she'll be travelling home with us. Fingers and paws are crossed there's hopefully a new baby girl here at Chez Koch. This pic is of the most promising prospect in my opinion from what I know about these puppies and here she's still only 5.5 weeks old. Wish us luck! We're leaving next week Thursday and returning home with or sans a puppy on Friday.
Hope everyone is well and you're all enjoying July!
