More Memories of Provence

So, I have been furiously working on the Block of the Month.  I have been getting up early and trying to get as much done as I can.  I have another job that I work at so before I go to work, I sew and when I get home too.  The weather has been so nice hear (80's and sunny, very little humidity) so in the evening, Tillie and I go for a long walk to get the willies out.  It helps her because yesterday, I met a couple friends for dinner and when I got home, she was wild!  Bill said that she wouldn't come in and she had started two new "projects" in the back yard...holes!  She won't come in for Bill sometimes and spent the whole day outside working on her projects...maybe she thinks that she is working on her Block of the Month!!  So, here is some of her handy work: Then, this morning, she decided that she didn't want to come in for me.  I went out to get her and she was standing by her hole.  I walked up and said:  "This is a no!"  She looked at me a

Hi Everyone!
