    Some of you may remember that a while ago I put out a plea for help regarding a request for border collie fabric. I was making a baby quilt for my vet who had spent over a year trying to bring my nine year old border collie back to some semblance of health. He has a chronic intestinal condition called lymphangiecstasia and is now doing very well and we have our fingers crossed he'll remain stable. Many of you offered help, especially with embroidery offers and I did appreciate your suggestions. Xenodeno responded immediately to my plea and send me some samples of border collie fabric. She really "saved the day" so to speak and I was able to applique the dog in the rear of the truck as I visualized. I also used some of her fabric for the label. She was so kind and helpful. Xenodeno, I want to give you another HUGE thank you for your willingness to help a fellow quilter even though you did not know me, nor had we even communicated directly before. It's a great feeling to know that kind of thoughtfulness is a fingertips away.

    my vet and I and Cisco our b.c.

    Wow! This is neat. You are very creative. I need to start writing down some of my ideas so I can incorporate them into my quilts. Thanks for sharing.

    What a sweet quilt! Love the design and the way the trucks match together. Adding the collie to the truck was the perfect idea. Great job!!!
