Quilts, Cats, Elk, and Dog Friends

What a weird week. This post will be some of the highlights.

I finished all my swirl blocks and decided that they can probably be alternated without issue. I actually think they work together just fine. Leela approves.

The elk have been very active this week and they like to stare at Nim through the front window. I have a mama in the area too with her little spotted baby, but she is staying pretty hidden right now.

I finally reclaimed my Mad Lunch Lady project from Gossypium Quilt shop and realized two things: 1. cats love it, and 2. it isn't getting donated.

There has been some rainy times during the week, but still some dry hiking.

Nim and his friend Jack hiked up to Stan's Overlook today.

Enjoy a couple of the outtakes:

Have a good night.


  1. First, I love the way the quilt is coming together. Second, Emile sure looks comfy on your Mad Lunch Lady project. There is no way you could give that away now. And third, I love the way Nim and his friend Jack were perfecting their camera avoidance techniques. It always takes about 20 shots to get one good one doesn't it? Jack is a very handsome boy...of course I'm very partial to GSD's.

    Have a great rest of the week.


    1. Jack is a really handsome boy and a really nice one as well. He is a funny dog. And yes, I actually have far more photos than I posted. They made me laugh to run them in quick order.

      Thanks for the comments on the quilt. I like how they work together as well. I need to lay out all the blocks again and see how big it actually is.

      You have a good week too! Sam

  2. I think your swirl blocks look great.

    That elk is just beautiful! That's funny that it stares at Nim. I don't think I'd have that much wildlife around my house as my 2 would probably scare it off by barking.

    Jack and Nim both look quite handsome there!

    Hope you had a good rest of the week!!

    1. The elk really don't seem to scare off much with barking, although I get Nim to knock it off. Elk can hold their ground pretty good with dogs to a point.
