CQ Journal Project....

I had signed up for the CQJournal Project 2012 and wanted something that would be easy to take to the nursing home when I got to that stage...  After discarding many options I decided I wanted to do Morris...so I could always remember him (as if I could ever forget)....  Since he is a black and white dog with a little tan..  The blocks will be black and white with a little tan...

I also wanted some color and will use pieces of this collection of 3/8" rainbow ribbons I found on ebay.


Then I had to see if I could come up with an image of Morris for each of the 12 months....  First I found the picture of Morris sleeping with my bra..............








Then another of Morris with his treasured hammer






Many of Morris mayhem








Morris in his comfort zone.   I finally decided that it wouldn't be difficult at all to find 12 suitable pictures of Morris.   It begins in January so I have time to finish up some UFOs before then..





When family was here he managed to chew up the heel on Madi's shoes, my son's sunglasses and steal my DIL's sandwich.  But at the end of the day when he crawls on a lap and snuggles, it is easy to overlook all his transgressions...

Morris sounds like quite the little devil Gerry! Am very fond of these colours so will look forward to seeing the progression of the project. Am still deciding what I'd like to stitch the challenge on.....

Love your idea Gerry. Your Morris posts are my favourites. I'm looking forward to seeing your journal pages

Good choice. Morris is a great dog and a BUNCH of inspiration.

Wonderful choice. Is the oil on the carpet going to be highlighted one month? I still have to shake my head when I think of that one!

Hi Gerry~ I think your colors for the Morris project is great. After looking a Morris and seeing him in action, I think he must be a long lost relative of my Miss Lacee's. She gets into everything. I caught her just in time before she ate up my glasses, a few weeks ago she ate my phone and I had to get a new one, she has ate two pair of shoes and gets the remote control any time she gets a chance. I have to keep the thing taped up to keep the batteries in it. I was hopeing she would out grow this, but I am wondering. They not only act alike, this kind of look alike. That black and tan.
Hope you have a great weekend. I am starting a new project that Pat has in the new mag. I dyed me some ribbon using the acrylic paint method. Also dyed some lace with it. I enjoy you in the mag. You add some good reading and beautiful eye candy.
Hugs, Pat

Hi Ger, I am so glad you are adding touches of bright colors to the Morris blocks because the colors of black and tan are similar to the Suffragette quilt. :-) And when you talk about your time at the nursing home, you DO mean when visiting your mom, don’t you?? LOL. Hugs, Cat
