|Wilbur Ticker Tape Quilt and Dog Gone Cute blocks from Sew Fresh Quilts|
This year, I had the brilliant idea of having the two dogs pose on quilts of themselves. I thought this would be the best idea ever! Well it had to be as mum refused to lend me back my Lost in London quilt or Red/Black colour block quilt for the photo shoot. When I told her what I had in mind i.e. pets on quilts, she gave me that look and said you're out of your mind if you think I'm letting those dogs on my clean quilts!
So plan B it was and full of enthusiasm, in between showers, we ventured out and attempt number 1 didn't quite go to plan. Realising the grass needed cutting for half decent photos, session 1 turned into lets play while G pretends the lawnmower is nowhere to be found! They had a ball, literally.
|Why does Charly have a ball and i don't?|
|Throw it! Throw it! Throw it!|
|Look at me!|
|Its alright Wilbs you'll get the ball next time!|
Yvonne's post about the names they have for their cat Puppy. Wilbur has lots of names. G calls him buddy, I call him Snuffleuffagus, G calls him Heffalump as even if the sofa is half emtpy he has to jump up on you, right at your head to get onto the sofa and across you to the empty bit - bassets are not known for their grace! I admitted to Yvonne, I also call him the Horrible Animal on occasion (if you're wondering why check our this post!)
She always comes when called and really wants to please you so you can be her slave and throw the ball for her all day long! Still that ball comes in handy as it can be a great bribe to get her to pose.
This is best I could do on the day! So this has to be our entry for Pets on quilts - dog on a quilt!
This is the 3rd year we've entered and even though the weather did not co-operate this year we did our very best and linked up at the last minute! Voting starts soon, please keep Wilbur's Tail/Charly in mind for a vote and there are lots of prizes to be had over on Lilypad quilting where you can check out the other entries too!
