Hound Dogs and My “How To Keep Your Husband” Quilt

My How To Keep Your Husband Quilt, still in the works…

I did not get to work on my quilt first thing this morning as I planned.

Instead Jon and I spent the morning trying to find where two hound dogs, that ended up in our yard, lived. They were a bit wild, but sweet dogs and I got them secured in the dog run outside my studio before they could go after the chickens or other animals.

They tore through my hostas and looked like they’d jump the fence any moment. It took many phone calls and visits to neighbors houses to find out where they lived.  Luckily one of the dogs had a rabies tag and Lisa at the Cambridge Valley Vets was able to track down the dogs owners.

I dragged a crate out of my studio for the smaller dog and got Frieda’s old crate out of the barn for the bigger one.   They howled and barked till their owners got here.

Jon left for his interview in Albany just after the dogs got picked up and I set up chairs, under the apple tree, for the visit from some of the people from The Mansion.

I didn’t get into my studio till 2 o’clock.

Still I got a lot done on the quilt.  It’s 9:30 now and I’d love to at least finish sewing the strip onto the right side.  But as you can see from the picture, there’s a piece or two missing.  I don’t know if I’ll be able to find it tonight, I might have to wait for the morning, but I’m going back to work now to  see what happens.
