Here in Podunk the Summer has been fairly mild. Tons of rain has nearly destroyed the garden. Normally by this time of year the grass is brown, the garden is drying up and we're preparing for winter. Not this year. We're still mowing about twice a week and my green beans vines have finally decided to make green beans. We've picked (2 1/2) 5 gallon buckets full of beans! It's better than the below zero temps of last winter.
What happened to the yearly Dog days of Summer. It must be that Global Warming!(sarcasm)
Below is a picture of my youngest son when he was 4 and his best friend Sasha. We purchased her when he was very young and she passed when he was a teenager. It broke his heart, he said it was like losing his best friend. He's all grown up now, 21, and still talks about his best friend Sasha and their adventures.
So why such a random post about our dog? Blogland can spark many quilty inspirations as well as memories and I felt compelled to share my little story after reading a post over at Sewing Wilde Blog. The post was mainly about some great quilt blocks and a super cute feather quilt with the sweetest birds. But my attention was on Izzie her Golden Retriever.
