The boss

Finn spent the morning with Keith while I slept late and then ran some errands. When I got back, we went for a walk and played some which was supposed to give me some time in the sewing room – he has to be in the crate for his safety, he finds the smallest pieces of fabric and tries to eat them and you know my sewing room has lots of fabric scraps floating about. He sat quietly for a while but apparently wasn’t in the mood to nap or be in the crate.


He was however willing to nap a while in the chair with me while I knit some on the baby’s blanket … but his nap didn’t last long and then he was ready for some more attention. He was groomed yesterday … can you tell?


It’s still a bit of a challenge for me to work around his schedule and I don’t get as much done as I used to but when Keith’s not traveling, he spends time in the (home) office with him and he’s getting better … it’s only been in the last month or so that I’ve been able to knit when he’s sitting with me. One day, hopefully soon, he’ll be able to sit in the sewing room without getting into everything like Chesty did. 


He did allow me to draft a chisel quilt … there are lots of examples of chisel stars out there and while mine will most likely be scrappy, I like to draft quilts in RWB so they can be used for veteran quilts. 

Quilt size is about 56×80 as drafted using the Accuquilt GO chisel and 3 inch finished half square triangle dies.

    Aww! What a handsome little guy. I’m sure he feels cooler with less fur. I like the design of the chisel quilt. Looks like it would use 2 1/2 inch strips. I have several rolls that need to be used for something.This pattern looks like a good one for those.

    Finn is so cute! Love his color! Sassy used to do the same thing if I dropped fabric. At that time I was making something with polar fleece. I took a long strip of the fleece, cut about about 3 inches wide. Made knots along the strip, and it’s still one of her favorite chew toys.
