The kindness of a friend from Quilting with Kimberly

More tears were flowing at our house yesterday. But they were good tears. 

Tears of love, good memories, joy for our sweet little Divot and the kindness of our dear friend, Sherri Manios. 

Last year, when Tuffy passed away, she sent us a gorgeous drawing 

drawn from this photo she found posted on my social media page. It means more to us than you could ever imagine. 

I had the drawing framed and it now hangs prominently where we can see it and remember Tuffy every day because he was, after all, the “World’s Greatest Cat.” (And that’s ...

We will carry the memory of her love and the happiness and memories of our time spent with her in our hearts forever. 

We have a warm spot in our hearts for cold noses. We adore loving on adopted furry friends and since we have the space in our ...

Jonica McPhail is asking for help locating a quilt made in 2018 that has been lost in shipping.

“I love my dog” is from a commercial pattern, measuring approximately 60” x 60”. The main colors used are black, white, and red. All of the fabrics in the quilt are dog-themed. The backing is a “I love my Dog” fabric.

Bows 4 Paws! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello my pet loving friends!

Are you a cat or a dog lover? According to studies, cat lovers tend to be introverted, intuitive, sensitive, and more receptive; while dog lovers tend to be less stressed and more cheerful. So whether you have a cat or a dog, we will be learning how to make a bowtie for our furry friends using the elegant Houndstooth XIV Onix from the romantic Decadence collection. I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as Kobi did while posing and eating treats.

Guess Who's One! from Quilt Doodle Doodles...


Well, we had a special birthday over the weekend. Someone special turned one years old. Our sweet Belvedere is now one... I even baked him a birthday pup cake. My hubby just shook his head and smiled. Yes, I have turned into the crazy dog lady in my neighborhood... I admit it. Belvedere has me totally wrapped around his little paw, and he knows it.  Now I didn't have the full blown puppy birthday party with puppy party hats... so I'm not totally off the edge or lost the cheese off my cracker... I have to admit it ...

Pool Removal from Becca's Crazy Projects

When we bought this house we knew the pool would have to be removed. This is the year we finally got the job done. The cover was getting pretty rough and we couldn't put it off any longer.
We uncovered the pool to see how bad it really was.
There was quite a bit of damaged tile. More than a few frogs, too. I caught three frogs during the draining process. I was going to remove them to an area behind the neighborhood with a slow moving creek. Two of those three frogs decided to make their own way ...

HAVE YOU TRIED A NEW TECHNIQUE? from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

I had so much fun making the Monster quilt that I thought maybe some child would like a quilt with all dogs.  I spent the day fusing dog patterns and getting them ready to sew when I attend Happy Scrappers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Wednesday.
This is a different method of applique from what I am used to.  I thought about doing my favorite freezer paper method of applique but decided to follow the pattern and try something new. 
I like the fusing method but get bored making the same pattern over and over, so I had ...

Put a Little Love in Your Heart Hop from Sew Incredibly Crazy

Welcome to 
Sew Incredibly Crazy
where it is my day to 
show off my Love project.
Thanks to Carol of Just Let Me Quilt
for hosting this fun hop. 

I first started off just 
thinking that I should 
do a mug rug, 



but that just wouldn't do.
It was cute and all, 
but it just wasn't quite what I was 
thinking.
If you wish you can find the
free pattern HERE

Then, I decided to make some
a little different.

It is the fabric line
Woof Woof Meow by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda.

Back to Fabric from Quilting Solutions

I'm Home!!  We were in WI for a week and Christmas, and in MN for a week and New Year's Eve.  The family in MN were all virused up, daughter with pneumonia.  My husband brought his own personal virus from home and guess who avoided all of them.  How?  No clue, but I am not complaining about not getting sick!

I did not take my sewing machine because my quilt was in disarray with a nasty surprise.  I made a slight change in the pattern and somehow my block pattern on the computer grew bigger.  It took me ...
