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”.
