Monday Meandering 9 - 6 - 2021

The late version.... 

Have you spent your Labor Day sewing away in your studio? I'm jealous.  I spent my available time today cutting out some pieces for my patriotic Saw Tooth Stars.  These stars are going to be a retreat project so I'm focusing getting all pieces cut out.  I have more to do but I'm making progress. I'm hoping to have at least 3 projects precut and ready to take. 

Sunday we were up visiting our son and family. The guys were working on a house project while I was trying to keep the kids entertained while Aimee did mounds of laundry. Overall it was a good day to visit.  Since I have no pictures from the studio to share I thought I'd share Walter and me. 

Walter is a one year old German Short Haired German Pointer.  A month ago he spent two weeks at "sleep away" camp getting some extra training.  Here he is having climbed up on the chair with me.  Hum, I wonder how much that sleep away camp was!  As we've told our son, we won't be babysitting him for many years. Kevin swears Walter is doing much better. 

On to goals from last week. Not terrible but not all that great either.

Not much else to share this week.  I sure hope I can make progress on my goals this coming week.  I may also need to find some more projects to work on -- there's always the Christmas ornaments ...

I'm linking up with my regular parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, and Design Wall Monday.  Please take some time to surf some of the blogs that link up through these parties. 

FLASH -- Linda who blogs at Texas Quilt Gal has taken over To Do Tuesday.  You can find lots more blogs to read by visiting there! 

That's it from me (and Walter).  

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. Cute picture of you and Walter! I'm jealous of the quilt retreat, I hope you have lots of fun - don't worry about getting anything actually sewn (hehehe).

  2. Walter looks like a happy guy, but maybe not a lap dog, lol! It sounds like a great idea to get all those pieces cut for your retreat project. Then you can sew, sew, sew!

  3. Love that photo of you and Walter! Organizing your projects before retreat is smart! Have a safe and happy day!

  4. looks like you made good progress on your list! I like to take pre-cut projects to retreat too. Happy you could visit your family and help entertain!!!

  5. Walter sure fills up the lap doesn't he! I am pretty jealous of your upcoming retreat, I am sure you will have a wonderful time and get lots done.

  6. Love the photo of you and Walter. Obviously, he doesn’t realize he’s not a lap dog! I’ve been cutting QOV kits for a retreat. I have four cut and packed, so I’m set to go.

  7. Really love that picture! Walter looks like a love. You did great on your goals - looking forward to your pics.
    You are welcome to link up to To Do Tuesday - the link is on my blog. :)

  8. Your Saw Tooth Star blocks will be a great project to take on the retreat. Walter is so cute and that is such a great photo of you both. He is a big guy. I love reading your To Do List each week. I can not tell you how much you motivate me. Thank you so much for sharing and happy quilting.

  9. Thanks for linking up to To Do Tuesday Bonnie! :D

  10. Our quilt retreat has been cancelled due to a forest wildfire. Praying it doesn't get out of totally out of control, but it probably won't be put out until the snow flies. Your granddog makes a LARGE lapdog, lol.

  11. Sounds like a full weekend. Walter is definitely a lap full! Hopefully you finished all the prep for your retreat and can make up some sewing time there.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
