. . . the routine



These past weeks have been pretty much the same routine. . .

I've been crazy busy with making new quilts from new patterns that I've designed. . . (& getting to use my own fabrics has been such a wonderful experience!) In fact. . . although I want to make more designs, for the past few days I've been making myself stay out of the studio. . . & I've sat myself down at the computer - to get the patterns written & completed. (The creating & making of the new designs is soooo much more fun than writing the patterns!) Pattern writing is so important though - & I'm trying to be sure that directions are clear, & that things are checked, rechecked & then checked again. It's quite the process.

But. . . in making the new designs. . . that means that my quilter, Nubin, has a lot of new things that keep coming her way. . . and bless her heart - she turns my quilts around so fast for me when it's Quilt Market time, & often, she even delivers them. (I ♥ her!)

So this is a scenario that has been happening on a fairly regular basis. . .


"Hey Bailey! . . . what's going on?"

"Nothing much, Mom. . . . um, but. . . wait. . . I think I see a car!"



"Hey Mom! It's Nubin's car!! I love Nubin, Mom!

"I know Bailey. . . but you know the rules. . . you have to sit until the car stops."




(. . . & the car has no sooner stopped then Bailey becomes 'Johnny on the spot' & at Nubin's car. . .)

"Hi Nubin!!!! I'm here!. . . I'm here!. . . I'm so glad to came to visit me!"


"Do you need me to come in & help you with anything?"


"Really!. . . I can carry in something for you if you need me to!"


"Oh, okay. . . you got everything?. . . "



". . . like 'loves' for me?
Thanks Nubin. . . I love getting 'loves'! "



This happens each & every time Nubin comes over. . . (even when she doesn't have a quilt!). . . & I never tire of it! What I couldn't capture in these photos is how much Bailey's (aka "Mr. Wigglebottom") bum wiggles! I tease Bailey that Nubin is his 'girlfriend'. . . (& honestly, she is!)

. . . This is the scene when Nubin gets inside. . . & according to Bailey . . . it must happen as soon as we all get indoors. . . if not then he literally grumbles & cries until she gives him all her attention. Then after a minute or so of 'loves-'n-rubs' . . . he lets us talk & he happily goes to one of 'his' chairs. . .



. . . After all. . . his 'girlfriend' is in the house. . .

Hope you have a great week!. . . I'll try my best to check in as often as I can!

xo, Bren

I think Nubin's twin brother lives at my house, only, he's not as patient as Nubin! What a sweetie pie!

S.W.A.K.

THAT is so cute! What a sweet little doggie! They always "know" the good people, don't they! Good luck with your new designs, I know they will be awesome! LOVE your work!

Bren, please do a little video! I'm trying to get a doggie and every bit of evidence they are fun would help my case--my DH wants a big yellow lab and I want a Westie, but I still love Bailey & Rosie...can't wait to see Celebration!

You have the best welcoming committee! Are you getting excited seeing all of your wonderful quilts getting ready for Market?
