Woof! from the confused quilter

Recently the Mini Quilt Trading Swap Flickr group held a swap with the theme Village, Town or House.  What a great theme!  This swap was a secret partner round, and I lucked out and got my dear friend Leslie's name.  Oh, I was so excited!!!  

Took me a little while to decide what to make for her, but there was a happy dance when I settled one something.  As I was paging through the book Houses by Yoko Saito I found a dog house pattern--I knew I'd hit the right idea!  Leslie has a beloved Irish Setter named ...

One step at a time...... from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

We're going to take this one step at a time.  Let's not panic, let's not lose focus, let's see how to break this mess that I've gotten myself into down into bite sized pieces.

First things first - I now have the paperwork for two of the four remaining magazine quilts lined up. The deadlines are prominently displayed on the front of both and thankfully one of the sweet editors gave me a wee bit of an extension. That helps!  You see the darn problem is that I'm off to Paducah next week so there ...

National Puppy Day from Becca's Crazy Projects

Last week was National Puppy Day. These are my full-grown pound puppies.

This is Belle, a black lab mix. She loves tennis balls and trying to get on the couch.
This lovely, is Reesey. She will sit for ear rubs and has a wicked wag.
They are spoiled pups. Don't let them convince you otherwise.

Dog In Fence from Pebble Creek Arts

The picture of this guy was so cute, I just had to draw it.

This is a charcoal drawing of a dog peeking out of a fence on 11″ x 14″ hot pressed watercolor paper.

I tried a new technique where I indented the paper with a kind of engraving tool. I found it in the clay sculpting stuff at Hobby Lobby. I did this for the white whiskers and found that they mostly stayed white. It was easy to pick them out and go over them with white charcoal to punch them up. Brining the nose into focus and ...

Aftermath from Quilting Solutions

We spent three weeks in Seattle celebrating, visiting, eating too much and just plain having fun with family.  We always drive and weather has never slowed down DH who is a frustrated truck driver I think.  He loves the challenge, but is a careful driver.  We pushed through fog, snow, slush and ice where many cars were in ditches.  Occasionally we hit some clear road and a little sunshine.  It was tense driving in many places, but we arrived safely to discover 12 inches of snow on the drive and much more in the snow plow dump at the street ...
