Hot off the machine

This morning I was determined to add the last border. I wanted to finish this quilt sooner but with all the Christmas preparations going on, just not enough time. I doubt it will be quilted by Christmas.

There's a Legavaan in my garden!

My dogs were barking madly, not the dog language we know like when the neighbors cat comes over or when the monkeys arrive to tease them or when they have cornered a snake or when there is someone at the gate or a family member arrives home. This was loud unusual warning barking so I went to have a look and used my cell phone to take this photo.

then quickly went to get my camera and lock up the dogs. He had taken refuge under a shrub so was hard to photograph. I used my zoom lens.

The rock monitor ( varanus alibigularis ) also called the legavaan is the second longest lizard found in South Africa and the heaviest bodied. They can reach 2 metres (6 ft) in length and could do some serious damage with their powerful tails. One whip from that tail will kill my dogs. This guy is still young and so beautiful.

I have made my filler blocks. Now to put the quilt together.
