As most of you know, we not only sell fabric, we make things with our fabric including pet collars. It is so awesome that our favorite fabric designer, Wendy Slotboom, has a cat named Toby who has exceptional taste in designer neckwear. As you can see, he is a handsome guy and we are proud to have him model a Comfy Collar! We loved the blog entry and Happy Birthday Toby!

This pinwheel quilt top disappeared under mysterious circumstances during a teaching weekend. Enough said about that--I'm glad to have found a photo. This quilt was designed by me for a challenge wherein we had to use only 4 fabrics and convey motion. I wish I had better photos because this fabric really helped the design move. It was a fun challenge and if I find the right fabric, I might just reproduce this quilt. It would look great draped on the porch railing on the 4th of July....sigh....
By the way, thanks for indulging me when I post photos of my quilts. I miss them like old friends!

Three weeks ago, while buying bird food, I noticed some innocent looking stuff called "Squirrel Food"! Charlie and Lola love to watch for the little squirrels in our back yard (with no possible chance of ever catching any) and I thought I'd just grab some for the harmless little creatures. Well, after only 3 weeks of feeding the cute little squirrels, I am out of squirrel food. Needless to say, when you look out your window and see this, you make a trip to the store for more squirrel food. So, I'm on my way right now before the window screens get ripped off the house! Cute little creatures......yeah, righta!
