Yesterdays chores

After about a week, I finally got back to the pears. I have about 1/3 of the pears quilted. I motive myself by saying, "use only a bobbin, then you and read that book." I forget how long a bobbin lasts on the Juki. I had 12 squares done before my re prev. Back to the grind stone today. My goal is to finish all those pears tonight.
Partly I was side tracked by.......
Can you see these holes?
How about now? Do you see all that fuzzy stuff?
Do you see this smiling face? This is my problem child.
Murphy came to live with us this June. We have been looking for a good home for him. I've tried to give him away on Craigslist. No takers.
He is a stray who has fallen in love with my son. He adores William, but William is not home most of the time. So Murphy has taken it upon himself to make himself noticed. It started with the a little hole, than became many holes. He has moved my plants. And torn up his bed, that's all that fuzzy stuff.
So this was our solution. This is metal fencing from Lowes. It hopefully will keep Murphy out of future plants and keep the house from caving in.
If any of you are looking for a medium dog, I have one for you. If Jodie from Jelly Wares, lived closer, I would take Murphy to her. Poor Jodie lost more than half her chickens to a fox or foxes.
So seriously, if you live in my neck of the woods and are interested, well let me know.
well talk later, Brandie

I've always wanted to make a pear quilt. This one looks lovely.

I think the pear quilt is looking wonderful. I love how you are quilting it. I have a Juki too, but haven't used it very much yet. Maybe this winter I will.
