A little Thursday night quilting

We had a small group tonight, and all of the girls were done by 8pm, so I got home early. I would have liked to stay until 9pm, but Pat had run out of thread and Ginny had sewn some of her blocks wrong, so they were ready to call it a night.

Ginny brought this adorable appliqued baby quilt to show us.
The poor little lion has fallen asleep, but the elephant and giraffe are ready to play!
Pat had her assembly line/sweatshop all set up. She is making 75 eyeglass cases for her niece's wedding shower favors.
Pat was too busy sewing to look up for my photo.
Toni had grown tired of her quilting project and took out her crocheting. She made this lovely afghan and a matching sweater for her neighbor who is expecting a baby girl.
That's Toni peeking out from behind that afghan.
Karen assembled a top out of of her birthday blocks. Isn't it pretty?
Karen and Pat are both behind the quilt. Karen has apparently joined the Witness Protection Program.
I'm still working on Eleanor's Christmas quilt that I showed you previously in my Purple Blog post. You have to scroll all the way down to the bottom to see it. I only have three strips left to finish the bottom half! Of course, there are still borders to add!

Here are my darling Larry and Elvis taking a nap together in the small dog bed. This was yesterday, when I was working from home. They love keeping me company in the office. There is also a large dog bed in the office, but they seem to prefer the small one.
My Mom had a double knee replacement yesterday. Oddly enough, three of my girlfriends' husbands also had surgery this week. So wishing a speedy recover to my Mom; Pat's husband, Mark; Judi's husband/Beth's Dad, Norm; and Joannie's husband, Dan.

Have a good night!

Pugs and kisses,


  1. Those appliqued animals are adorable!

  2. Aw...Larry and Elvis look quite happy together in one small bed. A very talented group of ladies making lovely projects.

  3. Larry and Elvis! I love it! The Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs would never touch each other. But the Basset boys will oftn climb into a big bed togeher. Or drape across each other on the sofa.

    Now if it is cold outside, they all pile on ME!

    Thanks for stopping in at my Quilts and Dogs, come join us in the 365 Creative Journal!


  4. Love the quilt with the sleeping lion!
