I have been able to continue to make dog beds. Each bed is made of a cover or bag of canvas, stuffed with quilt and other left-overs: fabric and batting scraps, threads, yarn, dryer sheets, and the occasional discarded piece of old clothing or towel cut in strips or scraps.
I have been able to make all these dog beds only with help from many fellow quilters, and most especially my friends at Wilderness Road Quilt Company, my favorite new quilt shop in Danville, KY, all of whom collect stuff for me, as I could never have collected enough by myself to make even one dog bed a year.
Dog beds two and three both went to Michelle Hiskey's new puppy Cleo.
Here's a picture of Cleo resting on her old dog bed with her zebra toy.
And dog bed 4 went to my sister-in-law Sallie Bright, dog lover extraordinaire, whose dog Lucy obviously took to the bed. It remains to be seen whether Lucy will share it with Annie and Lionel or whether they will have to have their own. So perhaps, Dog beds 5 and 6 will have to go there as well? Stay tuned!
