    Your string Dresden rings are beautiful! Great idea! Also love your fur baby -- our last big dog was a Shepherd, we loved her like crazy and she had a nice long life with us....she always wanted to be in our laps (thought she was a lap dog!). Now that we have small dogs, they always think they're German Shepherds!

    What a great idea! I love these blocks....and that furbaby of yours is a real doll! My 83 year old parents have one that looks similar....except theirs is over 100 pounds....not fat just BIG!

    OMG! I LOVE them. Never would have thought about doing a Dresden like that. I have been wanting to make a Dresden for a long time and haven't done it. But you are inspiring me beyond belief! My DH just walked through and I showed him your pic and he said " Now I really like that, it's neat!" We both love scrappy. Thank you sew much for sharing your pic, would love to see pic when it is completed!...

    I was so excited I forgot to tell you your shep. is gorgeous!

    What a gorgeous furbaby, reminds me of our last Shepherd Tara. Love the blocks, that will be gorgeous when made into a quilt.

    LOL, didn't notice that. Sure looks like he is but it is the chain from a hanging lamp going down the wall, goes along the side of my design wall.

    Nice dresden, Love the shepherd! Looks so much- almost exactly like my Jasmine!! I lost her in '07 to a fast, aggressive strain of Lymphosarcoma, makes me want to bury my head in his scruffy neck. Sniff, sniff, thanks for the memories.
    The quilt is quite nice, I hope one day do a dresden plate.

    Now this is CLEVER. You will certain spur the creative juices in many of us. I have tons of scraps, mine and friends who give them to me. This might be yet another way to use them up. Thank you for sharing.. just very clever.
