And as soon as my house was all cleaned and the fall decorations put out, Ozzie went outside and tried to make friends with a skunk. That didn't work out so well. Now, anyone who comes into the house is greeted by, well, the smell of skunk. Which predominates over anything else one might notice. So much for my fall decor.
We've washed him in Dawn, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, tomato juice, all the usual treatments. I caved in and took him to a new dog groomer for a bath, which actually was fairly successful. Finally I believe I have found someone who can handle him. She looks and talks exactly like Dolly Parton (including the big blond wig), which was a huge distraction to him while she was bathing him and clipping his nails. "Why, did that bad ol' Mr. Skunk spray you Mr. Ozzie? Did you tell him Auntie Vonna wouldn't like that one bit? Yes you did, didn't you?" He was so amazed by her he was immobilized long enough for her to work her magic.
I got out my Antique Stars blocks and started working on them again. I have 48 out of 86 blocks done. As I finish them (I am making three at a time), I just slap them up on the design wall. I can rearrange them when all are finished. Eventually there will be a dark brown lattice separating the blocks. It is a good sized quilt, a pattern by Bonnie Blue/Red Crinoline. Fabrics all from my stash.
Have a great weekend sewing everyone. I hope to have a productive one!
