See that very bright spot in the clouds? I could not get a photo to show what I actually see. The clouds are acting as a prism sending a flash of a rainbow to my eyes! Never seen that before. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #eveningsky

Where’s Waldo? #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #K -man #halloween
Halloween at the Dog Park with CAAWS. Brought sawyer with us while I manned the booth and passed out the Krewe of Mutts Parade info and Santa CAAWS flyers. Lots of dogs and costumes! . #rescue #dogparade #dogparkhalloween #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs
If you were wondering how@my Mexican Folk Art painting is@coming along. We are in week 4 of the 6 week class. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #mexicanart #amati #bird
Day of the Dead towels from Becky at Becky’s Treasure Trove. 😍😍😍😍 #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #beckyhancock #treaauretrove #pinks #dayofthedead #losdiosdemuertos
Becky sent me an amazing assortment of fabric and two day of the dead tea towels in this month’s allotments. I am in LOVE! #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #treasuretrove #pinks #beckyhancock
After all these years I finally figured out how to immobilize McGee. CAAWS has a Halloween event at BREC Forest Park this Friday where the dogs can trick ir treat. I wanted DiNozzo to be the glass of milk. But the Cookie might not make it. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #poundcake #bassetdilemma #OMGtakeitoff #iamdyingrightnow #lifeismiserable
McGee at the vet for some really itchy skin #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #mcgee #itchydog
OK. I am now collecting golden rod. I am trying to remember if I can boil the flowers and leaves for dyeing.....or did the book say it needed to be the roots? #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #inquiringmindswanttoknow #gottagoreadthebook #needabettermemory #goldenrod #ecodye #ecodyeingfabric
McGee is such a pretty dog. He has great ears. No staying ability, but he is cute. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #mcgee #basset #doesntlistentomom #cantstay #mindofhisown
This was a smooshed acorn top. They have huge acorns in a tree around the block #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #ecodye
First of the eco dyes. PURPLE! Can you believe it? #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #ecodye #purple
Whoa!!!!!! Look at that luxurious deep purple in my eco pot. I HOPE HOPE HOPE that it stays!!! Let’s see what I can do about it. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #ecodye #ecodyefabric #canyousayamzing
Doing some eco dyeing this morning. Looking pretty purple in there. I picked up oak and gum leaves on your walk. Some walnut nut cases. Added some lorapetalum from my yard. Oh and I sacrificed an avocado for its skin in some of the bundles. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #ecodye #rocksoup #actuallysmellsprettygood #smellslikedinner
Despite having no blue inks, I really wanted to put more paint in the surface. So I offer you an purple sky. Could happen? Right? #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #atomizer #hopeIgetbetterwithpractice
I have a new fabric manipulation method. Something I picked up in France. I know this looks like “not fabric” but there is a pretty steep learning curve..... #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy
This was my closest neighbor today. He is quite beautiful. No idea what kind he is but he is one of the orb weavers. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #spiderman #spiderweb
Look at what came in my mail today. I was kind of excited and 😮 surprised to see the China return address. I purchased this from Amazon Prime! Do you know what it is? No, it is not druggie paraphernalia! It is a paint atomizer that holds the paint in that chamber. Different from the one that has no chamber. Thought I would try both methods. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #notdrugparaphernalia #alwaysinteresting #stickwithmeandyoullgoplaces
Frank bought a new (and very expensive) professional sprinkler and boy does it move some water! #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #octoberyard #canyousaysprinkler
I was also there to see my fiber artist friend Judy and her fabulous black and white photography #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #judymomenzada #photography

While I am very concerned for those in the way of Hurricane Michael, I am glad it is not heading to my house. Take care and stock up in water and sandwiches! Hope he passes you by quickly with no damage. #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #hurricanemichael #hurricane
I live in a town where you get to listen to jazz music while you choose vegetables and browse the art market on Saturday mornings. And I love it! #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #hotjazz #artmarket #farmersmarket #tomatosandjazz
Me and mum napping 😴 earlier today. 💤 💤💤💤💤 Lazy Saturday rainy arvo, perfect 👌. #qatcdogs #quiltsanddogs
Just sittin’ and waiting for the President’s text. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #K -Man #presidenttrumpstextingme
This is how McGee quilts. He does a lot of thinking before he cuts into a piece of fabric. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #mcgee #toomuchpersonalinformation
Proof the DiNozzo loves@fabric as much as I do. We both want to sleep on it! #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #dinozzo #nowwherewasthatpiece
I forget to feed the Bassets for ONE day! #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #scarydog #skeletondog #halloween
See? It does love me! Yum! #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #poundcake #cakelove
Am making a pound cake for ice cream later. I still don’t have a hand mixer since the flood so I did FOUR minutes mixing by hand! Whew! I was rewarded with love by this splatter of cake batter! Awwww #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #poundcakelove #bigmusclesfrommixingcakebatterbyhand
While in Oberni France one night for dinner we had a salad with these beauties. There was much discussion. As to what they were and we decided they were weird little tomatoes that we don’t have here in the US. Imagine my surprise when I encountered them at the Salad Station at lunch today. They confirmed they were little sweet peppers. No bigger than the top of my finger! And so sweet. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #frenchdilemma #sweetpeppers
What? Mom woke me up just to take a photo. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #dinozzo #momleavemealone
OK. Had to post one more. This is the reason for the pumpkin’s demise. Carrie had given me some black rice and charged me with finding the perfect recipe for it. #ithinkigotit #chickenpumpkinstew #blackrice #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs
Too bad it is overcast and I can’t work on being not so white..... #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #mcgee
It doesn’t look good for the pumpkin. #chickenpumpkinstew #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy
I am trying to see how big this piece of fabric is when it was laid upon by a mob of usurpers. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs
Here we are flying over Greenland ,see the glacier? We were at 37000 feet. #QuiltSwissy #quiltsanddogs #greenland .

Coming into Munich. I hope he is in the right lane! #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #germany #lostasagoose
Found this little guy at a lunch stop in Switzerland. A McDonald’s no less! Here they are called Grosser Sennenhund, their true name. This is where I get my QuiltSwissy name. I showed these dog for 25 years. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #swissy #greaterswissmountaindog #greaterswiss #BonnieDoon
Nave chapel at Le Corbusier in Ronchamp France. Looks like the heavens are showering the altar with light. Such a unique effect. #lecourbisier #france #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #suchbeauty #incrediblepeace
This is the interior wall of Le Corbusier Chapel. The walls start at 8 feet thick and taper up to 6 inches. Inset into the walls are these pieces of stained glass. You can walk inside the windows at floor level. The roof is poured concrete and is suspended above the walls so they do not touch. There is a gap between that let light and air inside. There are no right angles anywhere. It is an odd assortment of curves and walls. I will post a photo of the nave chapel. Even for the non-religious you can feel the peace and beauty of this space. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #lecorbusier #france #notredameduhaut #unbelievablepeace
This was my very first quilt! Made for my mom (@mariefurl ) and Marcy (@marcy_and_miles ) approved!
Down to 6% on my phone but felt you needed to see this. Le corbusier Norte dame aux haut. Look it up. #notredameduhaut #ronchamp #france #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs
While everyone else had potato chips, I had Lady Chips. Thai flavor aside, I deserved them the most. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #bernhauptstadt #france #frenchluncheon

The freezing Cow found a way to make rolled ice cream and peanut sauce topped with pretzels and cherries. I think I found my new mate! #icecreamdream #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #cantletwendybeatmeaticecream #freezingcow #peanutpie #ificouldmarryicecream
Decided to try rusting a piece of batting to see how that would work. Worked well, I would say! Piece is about 12 x12 inches #rusting #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #batting #rustystuff
Something about a quilt on the floor calls out to dogs like a beacon: “Come sit on me!”
Finished this baby quilt as a quilt top today while listening tj he Historu Chicks talk about Georgia O’ Keefe. Definitely worth a listen, they have so much fun talking! So does this look like a Modernist Movement Quilt? LOL #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #littlefarmsquilt #someunknownbaby
Happy National Dog Day. McGee is curled in the cup tonight and DiNozzo is relegated to the cool floor! #quiltsanddogs #quiltswissy #dinozzo #mcgee #nationaldogday2018

Just got my fabric order from Delta Patchwork’s 50% off sale. It is so pretty I don’t want to open it!!!!! #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #deltapatchworkrules #morefabric #justwhatineeded
Made 3 new quilted journal covers today. Two went to Frank and I managed to keep this puppy for myself. Can you blame me? #Quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #journalcover #foreverdogs
We went to Ashley Manor and donated blood and got a great meal and amazing bread pudding. #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs #blooddrive #vampiresAreReal

#QuiltSwissy #quiltsanddogs #orangetabby #minkie #finished Orange Tabby is the New Black Cat 🐈. Just finished. Love the orange Minkie on the back. Finish number 12 this year!
#Scotland #Shetland #ShetlandIslands #lerwick #quiltswissy #quiltsanddogs this was a mosaic wall in the center of Lerwick in the Shetland Islands. I thought that any of these would be fantastic to grid out on a really modern quilt. Maybe I need to do a #shetlandquilt series, huh?
