Woof Woof #1

The photography is not very good but I hope you can see that the ears and tongue hang free on this paper pieced doggy.  I was trying to make one that looks like Sara (and it does a little). Next, to make one that looks like Bubbles.  finding a black and white fabric for Bubbles' face might be the biggest challenge.  These were fabrics in my stash.  I was anxious to try this new pattern.  The brown is leftover from the back of a quilt and the background was a FQ gifty from my SIL.  I think I'll look at some other options for the tongue while I'm shopping too.  The pattern is by Christine Thresh at  It is called "My Dog Your Dog" or maybe it's "Your Dog My Dog".

I made something for ME

I pulled these shortalls from the rummage sale box and repurposed them as an apron with ruffles and yo yo's. Look for me wearing it at the Highlands Festival in July. Thank you CleverQuilter  for the inspiration.

Owling in Nature's Wonderland

This is my 2nd Convergence Quilt.  I followed Ricky Tims directions on this one.  One square is an owl border fabric and the 2nd square is wonky pieced square with the stars on top and the "trees" on the bottom.
I made this wall quilt as a gift for a friend.  It reminds us of our first outing with the local birding club to see and hear owls.  We had a great time even though we never had even a glimpse of an owl.  We ended the evening at Dairy Queen with sundaes and had a good laugh about Owling
