The Dog Days of Summer usually end in late August, but my dog days continue a little longer.
These four fur-children are my summer companions. The black lab mix and light yellow lab mix (foreground) are my dogs, Bailey and McKenzie. The dog with black spots is my son Andrew's dog, Moose. The darker yellow lab is my son David's dog, Jozy. Moose and Andrew have been living with us for the past two years while Andrew went back to school. Jozy visits for about six weeks every summer while David is in California for work. I call my house Doggy Day Care!
Tomorrow I get to drive to Natchitoches, Louisiana to meet up with David and hand over his dog. Natchitoches (pronounced "Nack-a-tish") is about half-way between New Orleans and Dallas, where David and Jozy usually live.
In another week, Andrew will be taking off for Denver, Colorado and a new career since graduating from school (second time's the charm). The plan is to leave Moose with us for a little while until he gets settled. Then I guess another dog-delivery trip will be in order!
In spite of all the four-legged assistants, I did manage to do some Rainbow Scrap Challenge stitching this month.
For example, some Tiny Tuesday blocks with light blue or bright blue scraps.
Random 4-patch blocks that go to the Parts Department.
These Carolina Chain blocks look a bit chaotic, but they should be fine when all the scrappy colors are done and put together.
Linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this week. Thinking of friends and family in Florida as Hurricane Dorian churns offshore, waiting for the forces of Mother Nature to figure out where the storm will land.
