Close up of Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel on the beach

Emma peacefully earned her angel wings surrounded by her loving family on Friday, February 6, 2015.




I finally finished this quilt!  I started it about four or five years ago but kept getting distracted by other, new projects.

I “unearthed” it during a major New Years clean up and organization of my craft room.  For some weird reason all of the neatness and the ability to easily see my craft supplies has inspired me to finish the projects I already have instead of starting new ones.  At least for a little while!
Preppy, pink and green fabric by Lakehouse Dry Goods
I used a bunch of my favorite preppy pink and green Lakehouse prints that I’d been hoarding for years.

And did all of the applique and most of the quilting by hand.

And backed it in a beautiful pink polka dot rose print by Lecien.

And even though I started it five years ago, I’m still going to count this as my first finish of the year!  Woo hoo!  Time to celebrate with lots of Spaniel smooches!
