Yabba dabba doo

Ok, it wasn't Yogi and it isn't pleasant...but, this is what Black Bear skat looks like.  I didn't know that.  But, as I was picking up after Enzo (dang, that he doesn't have opposable thumbs!) I came across a pile on my front lawn that looked exactly like this!  I immediately said, "This is NOT my dog poop (yes, I said it out loud) but, it is the weirdest dog poop I have ever seen!"  HH who was talking to a guy on the side of the house excused himself by saying as he rolled his eyes, "my wife wants me to look at some poop"...well, he didn't use the word poop.  Being an outdoors guys he immediately said, "That is black bear skat."  I said, "NO WAY!!!"  At which point he brought up the photo on google...what would we do without google...and showed me an identical pile of poop.  He then proceeded to tell that one night when I was at Quilt Retreat (thank my lucky stars) Enzo woke up and went into the bathroom growling...which is right outside where I found the pile! Yabba dabba poo!

I have been working away at a Jelly Roll quilt made from a Blueberry Crumb Cake Roll...and yes, it is as yummy as it sounds! I buy jelly rolls because I can't afford the calories of a real jelly roll. I have never made a jelly roll quilt but I feel the calories burning.

...and while I was strip piecing I had an awesome experience!!!!  As providence would have it, HH was sitting in sewing room when this happened!!!  I am not saying it is as good an experience as some that I have had with him...but oh...it was still satisfying.

Then...I get to start a new one!  I think next year I am going to keep track of how many spools of thread I empty!

Have a wonderful Tuesday! I am off to Woolies for an exceptional stitching experience, lol
