Cone Head Druggie


I can giggle now when I look at these pictures but at the time I felt so sorry for my little girl.  She woke us up in the middle of the night crying in pain.  We rushed to the emergency vet and we discovered that she had a very swollen and infected anal gland.  They had to drug her and open it up to drain it.  When we got home she had trouble standing and holding her head up with the cone of shame on.  I made a little nest for her in front of the fireplace.  When she was a little more conscious I gave her a little yogurt (that accounts for all the extra white around her chin) to help offset the negative effects of the antibiotics they put her on.

Shoji Screen FAL#3

I can’t believe that this quilt is finally done.  I made it back in 2009 or 2010.    It hung around my studio for years because I had no idea how I wanted to quilt it and I was afraid to tackle it on my domestic machine.  It was on my 2nd and 3rd quarter FAL lists.  I even had it on my frame 3 different times before I finally finished all the free motion quilting.  I used two layers of batting: a stiff fusible one (so that it will hang flat and firm) and a high loft polyester.  It gave amazing depth to the peacocks and the flowers.  I put a sleeve on it so that it can be used as both a wall hanging or a lap quilt.  I took pictures today in the shade and in full sun.  Although the full sun pictures fade out the colours, they definitely show off the dimension created by the quilting and the double batting.



I just love how the quilting shows up on the back of the quilt….such dimension.



And of course there has to be a picture of little Tilly parked in the middle of my quilt as I hand sew the binding on.  I love the bad-hair-day-mohawk-head.  I looks like  she was giving Don the evil eye because she was sick of the flash going off in her face repeatedly.

Birthday Girl

Our little girl is 3 today. I love having a small dog that I can pick up and smooch and Tilly is the perfect girl for the job. She is a real love muffin and she will spend hours in my lap snuggling and flirting. Thanks Chris for breeding such a wonderful Cavie!! I highly recommend the breed.
