January Blogger BOM Winner

     First of all we have a winner for January Blogger BOM. That lucky follower is Scrapbook-ChickADoodle. I have emailed her and will be shipping her 100 2.5" fabrics squares as soon as I get her address.
     I also took some more pictures of Megan's Baby quilt to get some shots of the back and the binding. I ended up cutting these owls in the wrong direction so that's how the ended up on the back. I love the binding on this quilt. I can't remember where I got it and I only bought a quarter yard. Turned out to be perfect for this quilt and was just enough.

     Other big news this week is this week is that we added a new critter to our family. Our dog Vinnie hasn't been doing great and my beagle Daisy is very close to him. Vinnie has a tumor in his ear as well as alot of other health problems. We decided that we weren't going to pursue surgery with Vinnie. Since he and Daisy are so close we decided to add a new addition to our family to make the transition easier on Daisy. We looked around and came across someone who had a litter of English Springer Spaniel puppies. My Uncle Tom had one of these dogs when I was growing up and I always wanted one. So this little guy has been chewing and pooing his way into our hearts, his name is Turkey. Daisy has been a very patient big sister.
       I grabbed some remnant fleece from Joanne's yesterday. I use it to make some doggie chews from this tutorial here. They turned out really well and the dogs love them. Very easy to whip up while watching tv.

     On the quilting front I am working on this baby rag quilt for Paru's baby girl who is about 2. She saw one that I made for Elizabeth's foster baby and fell in love with it. I made this one for her daughter with the cutest fattest bumble bees. I need to snip the seems on this one....

     Enough slacking I need to get back to the machine. Don't forget 2/1/13 we have a bonus Blogger BOM with Jennifer from Knotted thread!!!

Linking it up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced....
