How could I resist?
This is still my favourite photo of the year - my AP&Q photo with both my original quilt dogs. Mr Patches (Blenhem Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - the brown and white), named after my hobby, passed away in Feb at the age of 11, just before the magazine came out. Miss Lainey (the tricolour) is lying snoring with a doggy-diaper on. She's on her last legs and won't be around come Sewing Summit time.
My replacement Patch, Miss Melody, is a happy little soul with very long ears and tail and legs and a fairly thin coat, so I made her a little doggy coat for Winter.Lilypad Quilting
