Many of you expressed concern about me walking in the woods with the bears. Sue, in New Mexico suggested that we purchase bear bells for Mazey. She said the downside would be that we would sound like a Swiss goat herd.
That got me thinking. When we went to Switzerland, we bought a cowbell. To get it home safely without causing too much noise, I packed it in my carry-on with a sock wrapped around the clapper. We have it at the cabin and use it as our dinner bell when the kids are around.
Voila! Mazey has a bear bell! We have changed her name to Heidi, and she is my Swiss, early warning bear dog. She needs a little work on her yodeling.
Mazey is saying, "But wait Mom, this is getting a little heavy and the clanging hurts my ears."
I guess this just isn't going to work.
Two more pictures of Heritage. The binding is finished! Now it's time for the hanging sleeve and label.
I'm off to the shop this morning to teach Patchwork Math to a full class. Since many quilters are turned off by the "M" word M-A-T-H. I've renamed the class Finessing the Figures. I wish I could finesse my own figure as easily as I can finesse quilting figures. I'll have to work on that one, and I don't think a calculator is going to do the trick.
