    My dog ate my pattern.. no seriously! argh!

    I had a pattern for a lap size postage stamp quilt from the board and had my quilting stuff on the table and my pattern must have fallen on the floor. I am still working on figuring out this new board layout. What is the best way for me to try and find it again!? Yikes. It had white pattern to it but thats all I really remember. Darn it!!!!

    Go toward the top of the page to the blue line and click on "advanced search." go down to "keyword" and type in "postage stamp quilts" then click on "search now." That should bring up a list of threads and you might find the one you are looking for. Good luck!

    No that wasnt it but that one is gorgeous. Maybe I will switch it out so that I can have it done before Christmas haha. The one that I had picked out.....the placement created a white star like pattern that I will never be able to do on my own LOL.

    Quilts, like friends, are warm and comforting; and you can never acquire enough of either.

    LOL ya he already did that to my son. He actually brought in the pieces to his teacher to show that there really were dog teeth marks and stuff on it. She thought it was hilarious and let him redo it lol. I guess there could be some truth to that excuse!!

    I dont know...im not that good at that sort of thing, but my DH probably could. Maybe ill try to rope him in when he gets home tonight haha. Luckily our DD is only 3 weeks old so I can still use the "9 months of carrying our baby girl" and the hour upon hour of pain in labor excuse to get things done mwahahaha

    Oh crap I didnt even think about that! If Copper doesnt approve maybe I need to switch the pattern hehe. He usually gives final approval...I guess he didnt even need to get to that stage before he said no. I still love it though so he will have to learn to love it too hahaha

    I can't tell you how many things my dogs have eaten! The worst was the check register. At least he only at the balance side and I still had all the check info and could re-create with a bit of pain. The funniest was in the days we rolled coins. He would eat the wrappers and you'd find 'puddles' of coins all over the floor. Oh, and about 3-4 watches between a couple of the dogs. Jeez.

    My Westie once got a hold of my Fons & Porter QUILTER'S COMPLETE GUIDE. He dragged it off the table. He did NOT LIKE being left alone at home !!!

    LOL I am not laughing at you it just reminded me of a time that my son worked on his math paper for hours and when he got up the next morning discovered that the dog ate it. I had to write a note and the teacher called me because she did not believe him.

    Glad you found it! The dog is saved........... this time.

    My nieces dog ate about 200.00 she had left in a pile on the stairs for a fund raiser for her sons school.

    Their yard was full of pieces of $$$$$$$$$$$$

    No mater what I'm making - I make a copy of the pattern on my copy machine and put the original in the file - or stack of books, etc. BEFORE I start to cut the first piece - that way I can make notes all over my copy as I'm sewing and it helps with LOTS of organization - for me at least. The original is always safe and sound..............works for me at least.
