I finally got out to a quilt store and found some Batiks to continue on working with my newest art wall project.Now I can move on with stems, grasses, and a few flowers.I got a start on it earlier this month, but my Batik stash was missing some colors to continue.So the dark green has been added as stems.
And now I think the lighter green with some shorter grasses. Then I added some flowers for some brighter colors. Plus I will be adding a number of stems with 12wt thread and maybe even some flowers using the heavy thread and zig zag stitching.
This is Ginger, our Yorkshire Terrier. No chickens, ducks or peacocks at my house. And this is Ginger's old blanket. Yes, it is shameful and we are pretty sure it will not make it through another washing. A little 6 pound dog needs a snuggly blanket in the winter months.So over the last two days I took the time to make Ginger a new blanket. It needs to go through the wash just one time before she will use it. It seems she doesn't think it is snuggly and soft enough yet. I got a complete rejection last night.
Your new art quilt project is developing nicely! Ginger looks adorable, too. I bet her new blanket just doesn't smell quite right yet!ReplyDelete
Oh MY!! How shameful that the blanket was rejected. Does that little bit not know beauty when it's gifted to her? LOLReplyDelete
I hope your Ginger likes the new blanket after it is washed. Our dog, Penny Lane, sleeps on a blanket on our bedroom floor each night, and then she drags the blanket out into the living room for the day. She is like a little kid with a favorite blankie. Thanks for participating in Design Wall Monday. You have inspired me to make my doggy a quilt.ReplyDelete
Love your art project...so pretty. What a luck dog
Ginger is...getting a beautiful blanket to lay
on...it will keep her snuggy warm during the
cold winter. Have a great day!
I saw the doggie photo and had to visit your site first. She is a cutie, and so lucky that a little homemade quilt will soon be her own. I love the beginnings of your art wall project. Very creative.ReplyDelete
Aw on Ginger. What a little cutie pie she is.ReplyDelete

The new blanket does not "smell" right ....yet!!!!!! Your art quilt is coming along nicely.ReplyDelete
Lucky Ginger getting a nice new blanket, hope she has taken to it by now. Your art piece is coming along well, I'll be looking forward to seeing it progress.ReplyDelete
Hi DonnaLee, What a great start on your art quilt. I can't wait to see it develop! I hope that Ginger accepts the blanket soon. What a sweetheart! Thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks. Take care.ReplyDelete
Beautiful new fabrics, and your piece of art is growing well. I'm sure Ginger will love her new quilt as soon as she really try it ;))ReplyDelete
Ohhh Ginger!!! About time she got featured right? such a cutie!! Your art quilt is coming along wonderfully - I like the darks you added - it gives it such dimension!ReplyDelete
What a lucky dog to get his very own quilt! He sure is a cutie-pie!ReplyDelete
Not sure what it means when a dog rejects your quilt, but sometimes it's all about the familiar. Once it smells more like her, she will love it as much as the first one, perhaps even more! Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
Good progress on your art quilt. Ginger may still reject her new blanket until it smells OK to her. Our pets are such joy in our lives but there are certainly some trying times with them as well. She's awfully cute!ReplyDelete
