    Hello everyone.. I am still kicking here. After 55 hours a week I am a little worse for the wear but I sew when I get the chance! Here are a few pictures of what I have been doing in my few hours of spare time!

    I love Deb's quilt. The colors are soft and cottagey looking. You must be great friends to make quilts like that for her.

    All three are lovely, Dawn, but being a dog love Tyson's is my favorite. He looks like he appreciates it as well and I don't think he will be chewing it up! :lol:

    Thanks for all the nice comments!

    As for Tyson.. he is soooo spoiled! But he is cute so it is Ok .. right!

    As for the blue and yellow.. my friend is so excited with it she is actually considering learning to sew so she can make her own.

    Once again thanks for all the positive comments!

    Dawn, I love all three projects (and I can tell that Tyson loves his very much!!) Deb's quilt is SOOO pretty. Such soft pretty colors. You chose the perfect pattern for them too. What a great friend you are!!

    Tyson's is way to cute just love seeing him sleeping on it. Looks like he's trying really hard to have his whole body on it without curling up on it.

    Deb's quilt is just something WOW all those little squares you did a wonderful job.

    Dawn, I really like how you did the T-shirt quilt. I normally see it in organized squares with sashing inbetween. This reminds me a bit of a post card for some reason. Very nice!
