Middle of June Already???

Wow, I can't believe it's already the middle of June!  I sure haven't been posting much lately, have I?

Well, I have a good excuse.  Seven weeks ago we adopted a new dog, a 10-month-old English Shepherd named Holly. 

She's a very nice dog, but needed quite of bit of training, so we had a six-week obedience class which we completed Saturday.  Here's her graduation picture

She even got to wear the hat.  It used to have a tassel, but some previous wearer chewed it off - LOL.  I'm having a lot of fun with her, but a new dog is really time-consuming.  She and the cat are still not best friends, but we're working on it. 

Not too much quilting has been going on in the last few weeks, but I did finish Town Square and sent it off to a friend.
The colors didn't come out too nicely in this picture, but this was made with the Lovely fabric line from Sandy Gervais.  It reminded me of a beach vacation with the turquoise and peach colors. 

So that is about the extent of my quilting lately!  I joined the Block of the Week from Primitive Gatherings, so I've been stitching on the first couple of blocks of it.  I'll post pictures when I get a few blocks done.

Hope everyone is having a nice spring.  It has been beautiful in Wisconsin the last few days.
