A couple days ago I was telling you all about my obsession with Moda’s fabric line Oz by Sanae. Here’s a little gem I finished up quilting a few weeks ago before my machine went on the fritz.
This little quilt was a design as I went project. I had leftovers from my Round About Schnibble quilt and decided to make use of them. I blogged about working on the quilt top a while back but hadn’t added the borders or quilted it. Now, I can say it’s finished!
Here’s a close up of the quilting….
I used a gold thread on the top and a variegated thread on the back. The backing is black flannel and the thread just pops! I tried to get a good photo of the back but had no luck….then Gracie even tried to help me get a good photo.
As you can see, Gracie looks a little sad today. I got my quilt machine back from the repair shop and was upstairs trying to get it set back up. While I was up there, my little friend Gracie got into the compost bucket. I came downstairs catching her “in the act” so Gracie “enjoyed” a little time out in the kennel. Hubby came in for lunch and I let Gracie out of the kennel. Gracie just went and laid in her spot in the living room. That’s unusual for her but I figured she was giving me the cold shoulder for kenneling her.
We ate lunch and I did dishes….still no peep out of Gracie. I went in worked on the computer for a bit, went to get up and stepped in a PILE of dog vomit. Apparently, compost doesn’t agree with Gracie’s tummy. (You can laugh out loud only because I can’t hear you!)
I think that’s what her sad face in the photo is all about…. Not only is her tummy not feeling too good but she’s feeling a little bad about the vomit mess too. Oh…gotta love that beagle!
Oh and before I forget the winner of the pattern and “Goat Gazette” subscription is #30….Nina. Check back tomorrow. I am having a “I’m cleaning my sewing room giveaway”.

Very cute quilt!! Poor Gracie! And Poor Jo for having to clean up both messes!!
Enjoy all your post but my favorite is GRACIE. She’s just too darling.
Poor Gracie! Bleh, I once stepped in a freshly spit loogy. I was pregnant and took my shoes off my swelling feet to walk 20 steps to the taxi stand. It was dark and I never saw it coming. Ugh! (shivers) I’m sure that is nothing compared to dog puke though!
Funny as dogs normally don’t hold a grudge. We used to hear this and laugh….try putting your dog and your wife in the car trunk for a few hours…see who cames out kissing you!
