New Shelter For Spring

My Monday errand in Concord was to pick up a new key to the Police Strays area of the new Pope Memorial Concord SPCA. It is all being refurbished and the last bit of construction was just finishing up.

Felix and I are both Animal Control Officers for Gilmanton and Belmont, so we needed to see where to bring lost stray dogs after hours. Dogs never seem to keep "banker's hours," LOL!

This is the back door that leads right to the shelter area for Police strays and we have one key. The director, Cathy, seen below, let me in and showed me the interior and gave me a big hug. If ever there was an angel walking upon this planet, it is Cathy, for all she has done and continues to do for the good of the critters!

What with Spring weather finally breaking here and the snow slowly melting into a memory, all the dogs in the world want to run off into the woods and roll in dead stuff!!!!

But while in Concord, I did stop in to say "Hello" to Charlene and the gang at The Golden Gese quilt shop. After all, we must save gasoline and combine trips, mustn't we???

Here I am, above, clowning around by pretending to make off with the whole shop's display of rolled Fat Quarters. But I was pretty good. When I got home, I only had bought ten of these bargains.

There was also a couple of yards of a primitive-looking red and gold stripe that I think will make a very pretty binding someday.

That sage green foulard came home with me, too. It is an authentic historic reproduction fabric, but by a house that I rarely see; Sayler's Creek by Judy Roche and Corinne Kramer for Henry Glass. Both of these were in the sale corner so they were a great find!

What with all the dog calls this week, I had little odd moments to sew and had fun making a few of my favorite stars. These are 8" when finished.

Tonight I am looking forward to The Sunshine Club tomorrow and I plan on bringing my machine now that Spring has cleared away the snow banks. How are you celebrating Spring?

Happy quilting!

That stripe would look nice in the next iteration of the Dots & Dashes swap!

It would have been wasteful NOT to have dropped in at the Golden Geese! And snapping up some gorgeous fabrics while they're on sale? - well, that's more money 'saved'! Well done.
