Shiner was our first English Setter who taught me the value of "stopping to smell the roses" ... or in her case swimming after a duck, chasing a worn-out frisbee, or hunting down the RIGHT stick thrown in the woods.
We should all enjoy life as much as Shiner did ... so I choose to look through Shiner's View ...

Turning the corner
She's another twenty-something cousin who just bought a house and this is her house warming present. Unlike my other cousin who wanted to stay neutral ... Laura has very definite ideas about where she wants to go with color ... golds, oranges, purples and greens ...
Definitely a growth area for me! Had a fun hour at the LQS pulling together the 9 pieces that will comprise this quilt. Then I went home and spent 3 days trying to figure out what design I want to use. I would definitely recommend doing these two steps in reverse order next time ;-).
But it all is a learning experience and this will be both a new color scheme and a new quilt pattern from me!
All the best
