Here is a cute little quilt that was made from a kit I picked up at Tuesday Morning. It is about 32 inches square. After piecing and quilting feather designs in each square and binding it I hung it up for this pic and it was not until then I discovered that the row on the left was sewn on backwards. It is supposed to have a zig-zag pattern. At least my puppy does not notice my imperfections. This easy peasy quilt was made for her. I refuse to believe she is a spoiled dog.
And these are pea"mutt"butter cookies I made for her. My DH really thinks I need to get a job. A little too much time on my hands perhaps? I just like knowing what exactly is in the food we all are consuming. There are literally 5 ingredients in these. The recipe is from The Doggy Bone Cookbook by Michele Bledsoe. I picked it up at Barnes and Noble and it even came with the bone shaped cookie cutter. Maybe she is just a little spoiled. But who can blame me after all she has been through in her little life?
As for occupying my time, yesterday I did a training class to be able to help the Children's Advocacy Center by going into schools and teaching 3rd, 5th, and 7th graders about child abuse awareness. I will also volunteer at the center. Next week I am signed up for a First Aid class and CPR. With the first aid I plan to volunteer at the high school in the first aid room and I will get those continuing education units I am needing to apply for my Alabama nursing license. With that I might apply to be a substitute school nurse.
Oh, and here is this week's completed project. They are 3 zippered pouches that nest inside one another. I was inspired by my dear friend to quilt the fabric for these a la "Vera Bradley style." It took about twice as long to complete a set of them this way, so will consider this in the future. They turned out cute though. I have created an Etsy account but have yet to list anything. Maybe these are a candidate.
