    What an afternoon and a few scraps can make.

    My fur-baby passed away a few months ago but I still love making cosy beds for them so my cleaner has the cutest small Yorkshire terriers and one is 11 years old so from a couple of spare blocks, oddment of wadding, scraps and a piece of polar fleece, and even end of cones threads this is what I made to keep her cosy through the coming cold months.

    If she is anything like my Muffin was she will love and guard it

    It sure is pretty and I know the little dog will feel very cozy. Sorry to hear about your own fur-baby.

    Sorry to hear about your fur baby. They definitely become a part of our families, don't they? Very cute little bed & I'm sure the Yorkshire Terriers are going to enjoy it.

    It is sure to be loved and cozy as well. I have an 18 lb doggie and he loves his little quilts. So sorry to hear of your loss.

    So sorry about your dog. I still miss ours, and he has been gone quite a few years now. Your doggie quilt is lovely, and a very nice gesture. It's amazing what you can come up with from the scraps and odd blocks.

    I am so so sorry about your fur baby. I have been through it twice this year. That is very pretty, and the fur baby will love it as their own.

    Very cute doggie bed, I'm sure it will bring comfort from the cold. I also miss hearing about your Muffin. So sorry her time was up.

    I spray baste, with 505 and make sure that it is well and truly secure. I don't do much FMQ with it but as you can see ordinary stitching works well.

    I'm sure the little guy will love his new bed. I'm sorry about the loss of your fur baby and also had to put down one of my fur babies, this last Thursday, her companion doesn't know what to do now.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss and I know what you mean, nearly 16 years ago we had 2 little Jack Russell Xs called Bonnie n Clyde Bonnie unfortunately got Cancer and died at less than 2 years old. Clyde was devastated and every day we thought we were going to lose him as he mourned so terribly. I got him a new lady playmate and when she had her 1st season he was as happy as Larry. She got the snip later on but they remained firm friends, any chance of you getting a companion for your Fur-Baby, like a rescue one desperate for a good home?
