September CQJP

Well summer is coming to a close here in northern Wisconsin. Labor day is our last big hooray. I'm a little glad and sad at the same time. Summer always goes by too quickly.

Here are some close up photos of the block I submitted for September's CQJP.

I am also showing you where some of my creativity happens in the jewelry department. This is actually my kitchen table. Good thing I live alone I'm sure most of us have a spot like this where we do are work. I like the kitchen table or a corner in the front room and like I said, I live alone so it doesn't bother anybody (and the dog don't care) and I don't waste time having to put things away all the time. I do some type of work almost everyday anyways.

Also I am displaying a few photos of my golden angel...She is my wonderful doggie..Nala. Love her much!

She's a beautiful dog and her heart matches her beautiful face. Here is one more goofy photo of her. This is how she sleeps at night. The other day I woke up early before the alarm clock and she was snoring loudly right in my ear. It's probably what woke me up...I had a good laugh about it and hated to wake her up.

Everyone have a great day  :) !


  1. This is beautiful! I LOVE the colors.

    Nala is a beautiful canine and it's wonderful that you have each other.

    1. Thank you. I am enjoying the colors also.

  2. I love the turquoise and brown! Yes, I love antique shops. Like a scavenger hunt, you never know what you will find around the next corner.
    Give Nala a hug for me.

  3. I'm not much of a dog person, preferring cats. However, your beautiful Nala is the spitting image of Lela, sweet dog belonging to a neighbor many years ago. Thanks for bringing back these memories for me!

    1. Thanks Robin, I like cats also but have bad allergies to cats so I can't have one :( But as you can see my Nala is a special girl. I always call her my angel in a golden fur

  4. Hi Susan, Just saw your block on CQJP and had to view your blog. I love your dog!! We have three American Eskimos. Your blocks are just beautiful.Very inspiring.


  5. that is a great quilt block you have done, the colours work so well together.I am enjoying my crazy quilting journey, still very much a learner.

    A beautiful dog too, I have no pets but used to have a cat, maybe one day I will get another one but it means altering the burglar alarm system.
