I think I spent more time reading on my new Kindle than I spent quilting. I had an original Kindle. But it eventually died a slow death. Generally, I have been reading on either my cell phone or my iPad. But I was running through my battery, especially on the cell phone. So Pat suggested I pick out a new Kindle. Good idea. I've been using it mostly for the last week.
Here's the grand dog, Cassie, and Kona squished into the back of our Prius. They've been friends for a long time so they seem to enjoy getting together. (Thank goodness since we take Kona a lot when we are invited to visit and Cass comes to spend some weekends with us.) Cass is a yellow lab and Kona is a black dog.... with a lot of variety to her! We were getting soft serve ice cream cones. They each got a little bit of my cone and ice cream.
It was a beautiful morning although the humidity has come back. I took several quilts outside this morning to get some pictures. This is the quilt I call the old Christmas quilt every week when I list my goals. I have a little over half of the border still to do. It's bad enough to have decided to hand quilt this thing but when the inside was done I decided to quilt the borders with a stencil that has eight (8) rows of quilting on it! Heaven only knows what I was thinking. Well, probably that was the only stencil I had that would fill the border. So, until I'm done it's going on the list every week. (Or I get sick of it and give up for a while!) (You should be able to click on my photos and they should enlarge a bit.) Someday this top will be done. Just don't hold your breath.
Despite not spending all that much time quilting I did move all my goals forward this week.

Hum, nothing there about mailing off my last two quilts for Hands 2 Help. They are going to Jack's Basket. I'll be doing that sometime this week.
I'm linking up with my favorite linky parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Main Crush Monday and Moving It Forward. As usual, I'll link up whatever links are not live when I first publish this.
(And, if I remember to link up....) You know the drill: take some time to surf these sites. There are all sorts of inspiring photos -- don't you need another project??? LOL!
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
