Benji Goes to the Beauty Parlor

Well my little sewing room buddy got one of his quarterly (or so) spa days at the doggie beauty salon, as my kids like to call it. It is really the laundry room turned dog groomers room at a lovely lady named Betty's house. Now I do think Benji looks so cute with his long shaggy locks...

However it is about 110 degrees here now and all that fur is too hot for him, even inside the house. So he gets all groomed and clean for a while. He loves to go there and is so excited to show himself off when I go to pick him up. Here he is looking out the front window of my sewing room. It's hard to believe it is the same dog. I have to keep a chair there so he can be exactly the right height to survey the neighborhood comings and goings. My room faces the street in front of the house.

A dog's life is very stressful isn't it?

I have been doing some organizing in my sewing room. I have started Bonnie's scrap system, but I am only keeping 3.5", 2.5" and 2.0" strips. Here are the 3.5" and 2.5" strips. It is neater, but it kind of stresses me out a little to think of how many quilts I could actually make from just the scraps alone.

These are two patches I have made in the last 2 months from the Leaders and Enders article.

Finally this is block 9 for Crazy Mom Quilts Quilt a Long. This was a little easier block than the last few.

I hope to show a finish in the finish 5 challenge tomorrow. The small baby quilt is done, but I need to take a picture tomorrow.

Off to watch the Bravo show about hair stylists. Maybe there is a bouffant in Benji's future!

Benji looks very cute with his hair cut. I have to keep chairs by the windows in our rooms for the cat!

Benji is so cute ... such gorgeous eyes. My cat has various baskets at window height around the house. He likes to look outside in between naps.
