howling at the moon

when i searched online to find out how to spell the howl of a howling wolf ... which i did not find ... but searching is always fun ... i found this ... i didn't know that wolves bark, woof, whine, whimper, yelp, growl, snarl and moan more than they howl ... and i realized that i have a whole lot more in common with them than i thought since i have been known to bark, woof, whine, whimper, yelp, growl, snarl and moan ...
anywho, i made a bit of progress on the 60th birthday quilt for my brother ... no, not that brother ... the Other One...
okay ... okay ... OKAY ... so it shouts a little bit ... but it's not on accounta i didn't try to be quiet ... and the tree in the middle of the middle isn't really missing its point - i just did a mediocre job of pressing it
...not exactly what i had planned - i have made yet another couple of notes to myself that if i want all of the paws to go in one direction, then i need to set them on point ... i don't know why it is always a surprise to me when i lay out the blocks and they aren't going where i told them to go ... anywho, the center is ready for some border inspiration ...... i'm waiting ... waiting ... waiting ...... nope ... i got nothin' so far ... whimper ... yelp ... whine ... moan

Hmmmm....lots of clear blue sky for the border? it probably has enough trees and bears' paws already.....

I love how this one came out. Great job! It looks kind of peaceful. You should get a photo of it in the snow!
