last weekend

Last weekend, we had a busy weekend, but mostly at home. It was windy and cold outside so we tried to stay warm and cozy inside. I made some homemade pasta topped with alfredo sauce to warm us up. And wore wool socks and long underwear all weekend.

I quilted my scrappy trip along! I also made a quick shopping trip and bought some binding fabric, so almost done with this one. Hoping to get it bound this week so I can wash and crinkle it into some cuddly goodness.

pillow fight
Also on the sewing front, I started to disassemble an old feather bed that we're going to use as a dog bed. The feather bed had a down cover on the top that we wanted to remove and just use the feather part in his bed. Sounds good, but in reality, it was like a really really big pillow fight from the movies, with down flying just about everywhere. We tried to catch as much as we could but catching down, if you didn't know, is like trying to grab air. Ridiculous. Luckily, we had made sangria to aid us in this impossible task, which we drank out of coffee mugs since that's the only appropriate way to drink alcohol before 5pm.

puppy with socks
And the hubs tried to get the puppy to wear socks. We have mostly solid floors that he's always sliding on and there are lots of rocks on the hiking trails, so we just tried getting him used to it so that he (hopefully) will wear them to protect his little paws while were out. It was a quick attempt with lots of treats involved. They lasted a few minutes before he kicked / chewed / otherwise removed all of them.

And, of course, a weekend wouldn't be complete without a little puppy mayhem to keep us on our toes.
