Turtles on Parade

I have now perfected my Turtle, Pin- cushion pattern and it will be for sale at the Sewing Studio in Mailland. My crow and patchwork Lady Grey are there also.
This is Amigo the S. W. Turtle all beaded up.

This is Bug

Here's Daisy.



Aren't they just too cute? I had such fun creating them and couldn't stop making them. The fabric possibilities are endless lol. I will now have to create something else.

Every now and then I have to have a puppy fix. I just love puppies. I have a friend in Ovida Fl, Susan She lives about 10 miles or less from me by the strawberry fields. The last time I picked, I went down the block and low and behold there were puppies.....

I pick them all up one at a time and love them up and get me some puppy love lol. Susan raises these lovely Dachshunds. I am so impressed in their care. They are nurtured and loved every minute of their 8 weeks before they go to their new families.

Susan keeps them in play pens. Each litter has their own pen and there are only two litters at a time. These little darlings make their poopies in a cat litter box, can you believe it? Susan trains them at that you age to do that. It makes clean-up much better.

I was so tempted to take one home the last time I was there, but I still have three doggies so I have to behave but it would have been so easy lol....

How can anyone resist?

The Tree of Life

I found this beautiful Indian Tree of Life at a show. I immediately saw it as a quilt. I washed and ironed it and quilted it and here is the result. It is a beautiful piece of art.

I didn't bind it. I hemmed it the way it was orginally. It measure about 85x95 more or less and will fit a single bed really well. It would also fit a double.
