The week in review - a quick look back at the week that was. Daisy had an appointment to be spade this week. Poor little thing, she barely made it in the front door when we brought her home.
The good news is there are no stitches to be removed and she hasn't been wearing the 'collar of shame' since that first night - she's not interested in licking her incision at all.
There is to be no running, jumping or rough play for the next two weeks. Hubby and I decided that limiting trips up and down the stairs would probably be a good idea, too. So we moved camp to the living room for the first couple of nights.
Doesn't it look cozy? Daisy particularly enjoyed relaxing on the air mattress during the day.
On the quilting front, I joined in the 9 patch swap organized by JulieKQuilts.
It won't be long and I'll have my 100 3" finished blocks ready to put in the mail. I think there might still be some openings for the swap, it doesn't take hardly any time at all to stitch up the blocks, why don't you pop over and sign up?
The work continues on my hexagon diamonds.
The stack grows taller and taller all the time. Just a little more than double this stack should be just enough. If I stay focused, I can complete one diamond an evening. Doesn't look like I'll have the quilt finished in time for this winter. But that's okay, it's going to be worth the wait when I'm finally done.
In the kitchen, I looked for things to make for dinner that wouldn't mean turning on the oven and heating up the house. The best answer for that is gazpacho.
The ingredients are simple and fresh. And after just a few minutes with the food processor *voila*
Enough soup to keep us in dinners for two or three days. It keeps in the fridge. Just take it out, ladle into bowls, grate a little queso fresco or Cotija cheese on top and serve with some tortilla chips on the side. Cool, refreshing and lots of time left over for quilt making.
