Dog vs. Dog

Hey guys, I’ve had an awful lot of requests for templates for different dogs breeds. How would it be if I made a template pack to go with the Pug’s Life / Kennel Club quilt patterns? You could insert your preferred dog breed without me having to make a new quilt each time. xx

For Sale – Hound Dogs.

Hi Y’all, I’m working my way through my sample quilts and putting them up for sale. Our ‘Hound Dogs’ quilt is next on the block.

Approx. 59 1/2in x 59 1/2in. Professionally quilted.

$120 including postage within Australia. Please message me for o/seas postal quote. You would be looking in the vicinity of $60 to $80 Australian dollars.

You can find the pattern here. There is a printed version too.

$4 Friday!

It’s $4 Friday!

Canine Capers, Hound Dogs, The Kennel Club, and The Bunny Bunch are all on special this weekend. $4 for the PDF version, $11.50 with free shipping for the printed version.

The Space Quest quilt pattern should be finished this weekend. The pugs are still ongoing.

We are still without internet and it doesn’t look like we are going to get it back anytime soon. Our Telco won’t commit to a timeframe and are avoiding answering questions. It’s not a great situation, and I’m getting pretty grumpy with them.

I’m taking some time out tomorrow to attend a lino cut printing course. I’ve been looking forward to it for weeks, but now I’m feeling a bit nervous. What if I make a complete arse of myself? I figure I’ll buy a jumbo bucket-o-coffee, swallow my nerves, and jump in feet first.

Speaking of coffee, it’s time for a late night cuppa and a cookie. Enjoy your weekend lovelies, toni xx

My day has been spent helping our No. 1 son make a jellyfish costume for a Halloween party. We put LED lights in the top of the Jellyfish so it glows. He’s six foot one so you can imagine what it looks like when he’s wearing it LOL.

He says that because he is limping – broken toes! – the jellyfish will blob up and down as he moves. I LOVE his sense of humour, especially since he is in a lot of pain. He actually snapped the bones, completely severing them from each other. Eeeek! Too much information? LOLjellyfish costumeIt’s been a long week this week and the weekend is going to be even busier. I don’t think we will get a chance to sit down until Sunday night, after we pick up No. 1 daughter from the airport. Come 9pm Sunday night I will be joining Spud on the couch.

TGIF

Spud’s name came about because he’s a fat little couch potato. However yesterday, while he was downstairs, he decided to go crazy and tear around the house three times at full speed. He runs like a rabbit, back legs moving together, and for a spud, he’s very, very fast. I swear I could run him in the Melbourne Cup and he’d give the horses a run for their money.

He’s back on the couch again, flat on his back, legs in the air. A picture of ginger and white innocence. I think the exercise was too much him! xx
