Double D…again

(Sorry if the post title brought you here looking for hooters.  Try the next blog.๐Ÿ™„)

The saga of Double Delight seems to be a recurring theme for me and the blog…to the point even I’m getting tired of hearing about it.  

I told my Mama just this afternoon that I’ve never been so focused on getting a quilt finished already.  Part of it is the money invested…something Himself needn’t know about.  Ever.  Never you mind the value of the fabric already in my obscenely large stash.  This monetary investment is different because I chose it with a specific project in mind rather than my typical “oooh, pretty fabric”.  And let’s not discount all the time involved in cutting it up.  Argh!

I’ve given up on actually keeping up with the quilt along.  Wait, wait.  Let me rephrase that.  Did I mention they’re finished?  Right-o!

Here’s where I’m at…at the end of Clue #2. 

And hey there, Hello Kitty pajama pants!  I saw you adorning a woman’s backside several weeks back in the halls where I work.  And, no, it’s not Walmart.  I’ve resigned myself to the fact that for a significant portion of society, pajama pants are the new yoga pants.

Anyhoo, I’ve committed to leaving the squaring up to the very last before assembling the blocks.   I’ve already had one lady comment that she’ll be waiting for the rant I’ll be posting.  Give it time, sugar!


On another note, if you follow me on Facebook, you know the family and I lost our furbaby/fursibling/sewing buddy to cancer last Friday.  Cancer sucks.  I give it two middle fingers. ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿป๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿป

Our Lulu was a sweetie pie.  Sewing without an 80lb boxer laying across the foot pedal just won’t be the same.

Lulu, His Awesomeness and The Diva



  1. So sorry about your beautiful dog. We went 11 months without a pet. Caught my husband talking to the squirrels in the yard. Got another cat before he went over the edge. You can never replace a pet, they all have such different personalities.

  2. I’m so sorry about your Lulu, it’s been nine years now without our Daisy and we still miss her. She was with us for eighteen years. The wound does not heal but it does get better.

  3. Sorry to hear about Lulu. Pets are members of the family that are truly missed when they are gone. Cancer does suck, we like to think our pets are the ones who wouldn’t be affected by that terrible ‘C’ word, but they are. We lost our Saint Bernard last summer from it.

    Now comes the time where you find a random toy or bone they had hiding around or some hair that you think you had all vacuumed up, and depending on your mood/emotional state for the day, you either smile or bawl your eyes out.

  4. You hate seeing a pet suffer & at the same time you don’t want to lose them either. It’s a painful decision & I hope you can look past the tears & smile at the memories soon.
