Hi everybody! It's me, Autumn, and it's my turn to blog!
I have to let you all know that mom is doing a special rush job for the Airedale quilting bee! Three of the ladies who sew for the bee had problems making the deadline because of other committments and mom stepped up and said that she'd help out, so while mom is busy sewing her block I thought I'd show you some of the mini-quilts that I have made! I sew too, ya know!
This is me at my sewing machine! The quilt that I'm currently working on is a carrot theme and I made it because Maggie is so nutty over Mr. Carrot! I sure hope she likes it although I think it will only cover her paw! The quilt behind me hanging on the wall is a mini-Amish quilt!
This one I made for the kitchen table! I used a heart theme because my dad is a heart transplant recipient! This runner is very long so I sorta had to bunch it up to get the whole thing in the picture!
This next one is all Airedale heads! It was so much fun to do! The wooden Airedale head on the wall is called intarsia and I didn't do that. A lady named Barbara Curtiss made it. Barbara Curtiss is my friend at New England Airedale Rescue
! Doesn't she do beautiful work!
This is another one that I've made! This one is a real mini mini! It's another Amish design!
Now I need to tell you a distressing story! See this little needle felted bear? His name is Oatmeal! Well, somehow his tummy got split open and all of his stuffing is coming out! He's not feeling too well so he's resting. I told him that I would help him out and sew him back up and make him as good as new!
I asked Mitch if he knew anything about this most unfortunate accident and he said no! I think he's telling the truth, don't you? His eyes do look honest!
So then I asked Maggie if she had any valuable information and she just gave me a kiss and told me how badly she felt! I don't think she did it either!
Nobody seems to know what happened to Oatmeal but he's looking and feeling awful so it's time for me to get behind my sewing machine and help him out!
Don't worry Oatmeal! I'll help you!
See you all next Wednesday!
