Lori dutifully reported in yesterday with a finished project. She wrote:
First up, just finished baby quilt for a friend of mine. Her daughter was a bridesmaid a few years ago and now that bride is pregnant with a baby girl. My friend’s daughter wanted to take her bridesmaid dress and have it made into a quilt. This is the hottest pink you’ve every seen. It’s PugMom Pink, as I like to say. And the pink was polyester. I cut apart the dress (size 0 so not much fabric), backed it with interfacing and made a simple Irish Chain. The flowers at the bottom were from the top of the dress. I quilted the open white squares with heart wreaths and quilted chained hearts in the border. Then I washed it to crinkle things up.
|Isn't this a lovely baby quilt? And it's definitely PugMom Pink!|

|Here are some of the blocks that Marion received for her birthday last month. She chose Kaffe Fassett fabrics.|
|Here's my pile of finished cut and sorted fabric. Sadly, it doesn't look like much.|
We've had a mild winter, but this week we've had two snow storms in the past three days. Here are some snow pictures for you.
|Elvis and LarryPug. Their coats are from Lands End and we've had them for years. They keep the pugs nice and warm in the snow. Larry even has his name monogrammed on his!|
Pugs and kisses,
