When their lease was up, my youngest son and a roommate parted ways ( they are still close friends but the roommate was going to move in with a girlfriend). At that point my son moved in with his dad temporarily and if you are a regular to this blog you know that his dad died in early April and he moved in with me.
He’s moving out to a place in the country soon with a friend. While he’s always visited with Koopa, and I’ve shown pictures of Koopa on this blog since he was a little pup, I’ve never had Koopa here on a daily basis until now and I have gotten very used to him being my little grey shadow ; I am going to miss him.
He’s such a beautiful pit…pure muscle. He eats enough but he works it off outdoors running and jumping.
He is very cuddly and sweet for much of the day…
And I have a feeling that he is going to miss me too :)
And he’ll miss his porch time out front…viewing the show ( this was after a nice thunderstorm and soaking rain…the birds were bathing across the street in the neighbors puddles )
Meanwhile, I have short daylilies on the side of the house that have been in bloom for awhile but the tall ones ( about 5 feet or so) in the front of the house are just coming in to bloom now. This shot is taken from the porch after that rain :
The background is my neighbors driveway. Earlier in the day I’d gone out with my camera and saw a web starting between two of the flowers and when I looked closely, I found Charlotte :) Now, I am not a fan of spiders in my house but Charlotte stayed put and let me get a photo …
I appliqued three more Little Baskets this week, using the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month, which is yellow. I certainly have various shades of that in this grouping! :)
As to further applique and slow stitching over the weekend, I showed hand-quilting progress in a previous post ( HERE ) and that is ongoing. I have finished up the prep work in regards to appliqueing another Elizabeths Pride block and am ready to get started on that.
I don’t have whole house A/C and we just put two units in downstairs. Upstairs… sweltering at the ironing board prepping these pieces during a heat wave….well let me just say that I wish I was doing this instead :)
