To the exclusion

...of everything else, this is what I did yesterday. No cleaning, no cooking, no mowing the lawn, no taking the dog's "you-know-what" to be tested before we leave on vacation, no grocery shopping.
Just this.

The photo sucks. It's kind of dark out there and this thing is HUGE. 7ft x 7ft. I had to get the hubby's photography ladder just to fit it into the shot.
I'll be quilting it in the fall when it cools down a bit. It will be only 69 degrees today though...
But, no - the dog poop awaits.

Pin It!

  26. It's gorgeous, Anina! Our weather is always great for quilting, but photos... not so much, eh. I think our camera should come with a handy dandy "Pacific Northwest" setting.

    Happy poopie scooping!
