Let's Book It July Link Up
I hope you are being encouraged to dust off those books, magazines, patterns, and net downloads. We have that long list of 'I want to make' and then let it sit - or add to it. Me list had a dog mini for my Vet on it so I pulled out this book and wanted to use the cover quilt - modified.
I went to my scrap basket and pulled 'doggy' items and fun prints - we want our pets to have fun at the Vet's office right? Luckily mine only take their annual trek and that is always a fun trip! (shhh - Moe cries like a baby the whole time) See, I had to take those Santa hats off - a minor adjustment to the pattern.
Here's the finished quilt. I wanted it fun and fresh. I tried beads and buttons and other embellishments for the dog's faces, but in the end I decided to stay with just the plain setting. The day I delivered it, she was in surgery, but she called later to thank me. Have you ever made a little something to thank someone who supplies you with a service?
