Turn out the lights, the parties over.......

Yes, the end of my birthday/blogaversary celebration has come to an end. It has certainly been fun and I have enjoyed reading the comments, especially those on the "Joy of Quilting post". The book giveaway on that post and two giveaways are still open so check out my posts for the last three days. When a giveaway closes, I edit that entry and add the winners names at the end of each post. Thank you all for stopping by during my celebration. Thank you, too, for new followers who found my blog via QuiltingGallery. If you haven't read my guest blogger post there, then check it out and if you leave a comment, your name will be entered in a drawing for a surprise package. I've been told that I do really nice surprise packages. Just sayin' but those who have received them, give them "high fives". LOL! I did have a little tutorial I was planning to share today on that little blue basket project but it will have to wait a few days because............
As I write this, I am gathering together some projects to take with me for a trip to visit my mom. Behind the celebration here at my blog this week, she has been having some health issues. I'll be going home for a few days so will not be blogging regularly. I'll check in whenever time allows. While I'm away, my dear husband will be at home, "holding down the fort". And keeping him company will be Kaiser the Wonder Beagle, our resident guard dog. Well, maybe. Does this look like a guard dog to you? .............

Not really!  This is a dog who likes a pillow and loves to be covered up. I took this yesterday afternoon as he was taking his nap. He may not look like he would guard anything, but if the doorbell rings or he hears something, he is up and at 'em with blanket trailing right behind him. :-) 
Hope you all have a good weekend!
Sandi

Edit: My mom is doing well. I will return home on Tuesday and back to blogging. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. :-)

It's been a fun celebration here at A Legacy of Stitches Sandi! You sure know how to throw a party!

I hope you have a good trip and enjoy some extra special time with your mother.

Our best wishes to your mother and to you as you travel. You can't be everywhere doing everything at once. Her health is a top priority.

Kaiser seems to be determined not to let that quilt and blanket be stolen. After all, he can't watch every spot at once. He has to set priorities, too..

I love that picture of Kaiser. One of my dogs doesn't mind covers the other will not tolerate them for even a second.

Safe journey, Sandi. I, too, have a snuggle-bunny who likes to be under the blankets. Minnie is a miniature Doxy with a king-size personality. Hope your mom feels better.

Safe travels for you and I will pray for your mom. I hope she is feeling better. Enjoy your visit. What a hoot Kaiser is all covered in blankets. My little dog loves to snuggle under blankets too.

Glad your mom is better. Our dog looks like that sometimes. He loves blankets and pillows too.
