In all the upheaval one could be fooled into thinking that I did no sewing whatsoever.
But I did. Some very special sewing indeed. With a bit of story that goes with it.
You see, in May the best dog in the world -grans' dog- died. After almost 13 years she left quite a hole in our hearts and lives. And although there won't ever be a dog like her again, gran decided to get a new dog to have some life around the house again. My oldest who's an amazing animal friend is thrilled to bits. She'll more or less be the assisting owner of this dog as she will spend several afternoons over at our place while gran is off to work. Yihaa! Boy, oh boy, this is so exciting...
And this weekend we went to see the puppies for the first time. Aren't they the cutest thing ever?
Ten days old in this picture and cute as pie! Tibetan Terriers disguised as panda bears...
One of these two sisters will be our 'Alice'.
And to make sure Alice will be comfy around here, I made her some blankets. This is the quilted one:
A little quilt made from all cotton fabrics and measuring about 110 cms square.
Cheerful dotted binding and a fun label to make sure nobody gets confused over ownership.
It's all quilted by hand following the seams of the pattern both on the inside and outside of the seam. Within the star shape patchwork centers I added an extra quilted double diamond figure... just to be a bit fancy. Cause let's face it... a dog with a pedigree that holds the name 'Klara-Alice du Comble de Bonheur' needs a bit of a fancy blanket n'est-ce pas?
