Hi everyone! How is your summer going so far? Ours has been remarkably wet--of course--and remarkably busy. After today's post, I am taking a small hiatus to go to a professional conference and then we are going to see our grandbabies! And what kind of a grandma would I be if I didn't have a small present for the grandkids? Here is one of the things I am taking for the little ones:
Aren't those adorable? This is a panel from a line called Woof Woof Meow. My friend Nancy sent me this cute panel of the puppies. (Thanks Nancy!) There is also a kittens panel, which Nancy made when we had a sew day together, so I can attest that it is equally cute.
I know these are supposed to be a mama dog and a papa dog and their kiddos, but I'm choosing to think of them as twins who each have twins! That way each of our twins can have their own dog with twin puppies. Don't worry, we have something else for big brother, so no one will be left out.
The panel was super-easy to make, and all of the stuffies took about 3/4s of a 16-ounce bag of stuffing. If you stuff them too firmly the puppies won't fit into the pockets, so these are nice and squishy.
That's pretty much all the sewing I've done this week. I need a little "off" time, so I am so looking forward to spending time with the grandkids. I have to get through the conference first, of course, but I finished my paper and I'm ready for it. Plus I always get to see friends at these things, and it also means no cooking for me, which we all know is my favorite thing. And on top of that I'm hoping there will be sunshine somewhere along the way. For sunshine I might even be persuaded to play hooky from the conference!
Everyone have a great week, and I'll see you in a bit! Hope you get a lot accomplished!
