"Hot" AZ Rescue

Finished up a donation quilt for the AZ Weimaraner Rescue to be raffled off - or outright purchased, which was done last year.

The center was done on tapestry weight fabric.  The red and black are Kona solids and the doggie print is a flannel I had left from a couple prior projects.  Measures 28 3/4" by 30 1/2".

Below embroideries were done in anticipation of putting them in the corners with another red border but hubby thought the quilt would be too busy so I'll just hang on to them for another project for the Rescue. 

And look who I found on the freshly changed bed.......Nope, not changing it again...LOL

We had more patio put down - out from under the patio roof....No, that's  not a snake in the center.

The "HOT" part of this post:  We purchased a hot tub. That "snake-y" looking thingie was the conduit buried in the ground and brought up where it is now covered.

Yes, I really DID have a cup of morning coffee in it at 6 AM.

I have another embroidery project I hope to finish up this week. Then I plan on ironing the pieces from  a FQS kit that I got this week: Deck-ade the Halls.  You can read about here on the Jolly Jabber.

Hope you have a wonderful evening.

Your quilt is a sure winner!

Your grandkids will love that hot tub. Ours have so much fun with ours, which also has rubber duckies floating in it--and some squirty fishies!

Love your quilt! You deserve the reward of a hot tub. If I had one, I'd be in it every night before bedtime.

I hope the quilt raises lots of money! Enjoy your hot tub.

Curious minds just have to know why you would need a H-O-T tub in Arizona? Isn't it H-O-T enough? *wink* Having said that, I hope you get lots of enjoyment from it.

Love your doggie quilt. Notice I said "doggie"? That's because I can't spell Weimerainer. Duh!

A hot tub sounds so nice! Perfect way to relax! That is such a sweet donation quilt Cindy.
I saw that free bom the other day... I love it and plan to make it, but I
have a nice little bundle of holiday fabric just waiting to be used!
