Well, I've finally finished the layout for the 3rd dye dog! This piece consists of fabric by Kay Sorensen, Quilts + Color. I finished our 2nd Dye Dog a few months ago. You can see that finished piece here.

First up, the latest news on our great grand baby, Declan! As of late this afternoon, they did remove the breathing tube from his surgery yesterday to repair his heart issues with a balloon, which worked great, but then they identified another area of restriction of a smaller area where they placed a stent. Lots going on for a 3 day old baby!
Mom and dad are frazzled for sure but they are hanging in there. Children's Hospital in Cincinnati has been awesome. They are all in good hands!
He weighed in at 7lb 3 oz. But I'm sure he's lost quite a bit of weight since last Friday! So hard to see a baby go through this but good that he won't remember any of it!
My wrist is doing great...some residual twinges in my left palm and wrist but I just wear a compression wrap and it feels better. Until I hit it or try to lift a dog! HA Easy procedure and looking forward to having the right hand done in October!

Bob and I do go out to dinner about once a week...and this time we invited Donna to go to Applebee's with us!
Applebee's was having their Long Island Ice Tea for $2 each!!! It was Donna's first time having one and she seemed to enjoy it! These aren't your Long Island's from years ago...for $2 they won't be strong but taste really good.
We haven't been to Applebee's since last fall but we did enjoy dinner and their pretzel appetizer was GREAT!
Not much else going on here...Donna and I still try to walk 2 miles weather permitting or when the church walking track is open. We've had cool weather lately in the 50's and some rain...but it's 65 right now and I think an outside walking day today!
I do have to share an landscape art piece I bought. Those on FB have already seen it! I think 'she' is adorable....and when you walk through the neighbor past our house, her eyes FOLLOW you! It's a hoot...we/I call her Mandy in honor of our first Bichon. I just love her!
She sits at our front porch area!
Gotta love folks who make items like this! I purchased from Collections Etc. I was surprised at how sturdy this is. Bob spray paint with Rustoleum to protect from the sun. A member on a Bichon FB page I belong to purchased one and sent a picture out. I think she should get a discount from the Collections company as she has sold quite a few for them! HA
Enjoy our Mandy!
