More Progress and an Addition to Our Pack

Rows 1 and 2 of Pohihihi are pieced and on the design wall.  Three more rows need to be assembled.  It feels good to make some visible progress. 

One week ago today, Bob and I drove to San Antonio and came home with Maddie, our new rescue dog, making us once again a pack of eight paws and four feet.  (We lost my little lap dog, Chloe, to lymphoma some weeks ago.)  On Thursday Maddie passed her well-doggie visit with our vet with flying colors, the last hurdle in the are-we-really-going-to-do-this-process.  She is a stewpot of DNA and of indeterminate age, but she certainly knew how to worm her way into our hearts.

Love Pohihihi!!! And Maddie is so cute!! Reminds me of a rescue dog that my brother had years ago - Tiny!! She wasn't a looker, but she was the sweetest fun little dog ever!! So sorry to hear about Chloe! Always hard to lose a friend!!

Pohihihi is so colorful: I was sure it was paper pieced. And Maddie looks quite settled in. We are picking up our new rescue dog this afternoon, a very skinny doxie we are naming Sherlock. He is seeing the vet this morning to be sure he is ready to be mixed in with our other 3 dogs: we are quite a pack!
