Mini Quilt Parade


I loved doing the Schnibbles every month and have tried to work on the mini quilts and projects, but never seem to get them done by the first....until today!  I love this little quilt -- I think I will make some more for Spring time gifts,  it is a cute table topper or wall hanging.   

Will try to post more often!  Lots of exciting things going on here!

Happy Stitches

Our Beloved Patches

On July 29 Patches lost her battle with T-Cell Lymphoma.    

Here is the tribute my husband and I wrote for her that was on facebook : 

It is with great sadness that we have to tell you we lost our precious Patches to cancer today. We would like to thank all the caring people who helped bring Patches into our lives. If you never believed in love at first sight, you would if you had met Patches. See was quick to give love and happy to receive it. She was such a good girl and a joy to have. She excelled at her obedience school as well her agility and nose work classes. Patches loved to travel and we took her almost everywhere we went. From the hot sunny beaches of Texas to the bone chilling blizzards of Illinois she loved them both. She got to lay in the grass and enjoy the view of the mighty Mississippi. Then stopped by to see if the American Pickers were around. Her favorite trip was when she got her picture taken at the Gates of Graceland and sampled some of the best barbeque Memphis had to offer.
Patches didn't get to go to as many places as we would have liked. But the most important place she did go was straight to our hearts It is there that she will remain forever.

It has been a month and I am still heartbroken and miss her terribly.
