Boutique Items and a BOM block done

I started working on my Farmer's Wife quilt today.  I'm working on the border now as the center is all done.  This will take me a while though.  I can't wait to see it finished.

We had a very quiet 4th of July.  We have 3 dogs, one of which is very afraid of fireworks.  So we gave him a Benedryl and hugged him all night while he just shook.  And I'm dealing with another very naughty little girl dog who thinks peeing on my …
