    As some of you know I have two dogs... a Sheltie with sharp tiny nails and a schnauzer that has nails like a badger! Even though our woodwork is new this past spring, their frequent trips to the window has worn the paint away.

    I came up with this idea and I'll change them to match how the livingroom is currently decorated ( since I retired as a primary teacher I am a little bonkers about decorating for the seasons! 30 years of changing things in my classroom can't just be ignored!).

    So here it is! it is attached with sticky backed velcro.

    The reason for the tiny perfect quilt. A new coat of paint might last longer than a month now!

    Uh oh! I think I may have to steal this idea. How clever you are and such a pretty little touch, too.

    To hold it in place, did you put a tab of sorts and slip under the open window and then close the window down over it? Trying to figure out how it stays in place.

    Sticky backed velcro. One set in each corner.

    LOL, K, I like both ideas, but yours would be sooo cute!
    I might have to borrow this idea too...heck, no might to it...I will.
    Now, let me see, one over kitchen sink, two for living room, one in sewing room, then there's three in our bedroom...hmmm, got my mind whirling now :wink:
    btw, I love your fabrics. such a clever idea, and you shared, aren't you sweet? :D

    Thanks everyone! My hubby came home today and looked at it and said, "I married a genius!" I wouldn't go that far but I am happy that it was a creative solution to a problem we have had for years!

    Cute idea! I wish I would've thought of that when my daughter insisted on cutting teeth on our window sill.

    Very cute and clever! I need to do that to our windows. I live in an apartment and my kittens have grown enough to where they can jump up into the window. They have done some damage. My husband feeds the squirrels, birds and chipmunks so they are always at our window. KETv. Kitty Entertainment Television!
