Sleigh Panel and New Puppy

Pieced and quilted this yesterday........    I panel that I cut apart framed, added a strip to the top and bottom then simple quilting.     Nice little practice piece to get back into the motion of quilting.

Monte has tears in his eyes,  he got a shot for ear infection.     He is such a sweet layed back little boy,  and he is a mama's boy too!

Bella is the new labradoodle who will be 4 months old January 1.    What a love bug teddy bear......   She is the most loving and funny pet we have ever had.

Buddy's another story........   A sweet little guy with ADD,  smart,  good watch dog,  and loves his big sister.   Bella drags him around like he is a stuffed

Little Cabin Finished

Quilters dream batting,  So Fine cream thread in the light areas and peach in the other........     Quilted straight lines in the borders, feathers, swirls, pebbles and what ever I thought of at the time of quilting this freehand.   A fun practice quilt again........    Still having problems making my feathers perfect,  the hand & wrist still giving me some problems.   This was a kit that I bought at one of the shows.   Of coarse  I had to have it because of the cabins.    I'm not to fond of the two floral strips together,  I think I would have chose something different.    It is a great pattern for a large print  that you  want to show off  and  not  cut up.     This quilt can be pieced in a couple of hours and makes a great quick gift for someone special.
