Scottie Dogs




I wanted to make a small wall hanging with Scottie Dogs and I wanted to try raw edge applique, so decided to do them together and this is what I came up with---pettable Scotties!!!!!! I "combed" them with the chenille brush to make them "raw edged." I like the way they turned out! They certainly did "shed" a lot--I had "hair" all over everywhere!

Other projects I'm working on include: getting the mystery quilt all cut out and ready to go to retreat next month; sewing the binding on the Rosebud Lane that dear hubby got quilted and now I'm working on sewing it down by hand; and completely finishing the redwork plantation girls little wall hanging that I showed you a few days back. Now I want to start on my wool applique. I think it will be fun to do, except for some reason I keep putting off the cutting out of it--maybe it's all the flower petals--it has lots of them, but I did a lilac quilt that had lots of them and that didn't stop me on that one so I don't know why it's stopping me on this one! Maybe I know what's ahead of me!!! LOL!!

The sun is shining again and yesterday the puppy and I went for a walk, but had to turn around and come back--I certainly hadn't dressed warm enough---brrr---it was a cold wind that was blowing right through me!!!!!! Have to try again today and dress warmer in layers.

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
