Blog Land

I am having trouble with my blog. It is getting very frustrating to me. Nothing is posting correctly. You have to scroll and scroll to the bottom to see everything. What am I doing wrong? I can't get my signature to post any more either. Nothing is working right on my blog any more. Too many spaces between My Projects Finished. This blog looks a mess any more. Not a happy camper. Sorry just had to vent. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
Robbie's quilt top is finished now I have to quilt it.. Hopefully this weekend.
I finished my neighbors quilt, her daughter just bought a new house in January and I promised I would make a quilt for her. She picked the colors. She has an Ocean theme to her home.

Now if you are grumpy and in a rotten mood just look at this and it will put a smile on your face... This is Harley in the closet looking for something and got caught. hahahahaha

Getting Some Little Projects Finished

Over the past few days I have been trying to finish up some smaller projects.  I get an idea in my head and I start pulling fabric out and building a pile on my sewing table. I need to clean up my sewing room, so I thought in stead of putting it away I need to finish these projects.. The stack on my table is getting smaller.

This is what I finished the past week

My weekender bag

Bed for Crate

I bought this collapsible crate for Abby when we travel. But it didn’t have a mat/bad. I had some old fleece around and added some batting. Now anice cozy, soft bed. Abby even likes it.

IMG_6115

IMG_6114 Poor little Abby,  I took her to the Vets today.. She has  what they call rabies alopecia. When she got her rabies shot a few weeks ago she developed a reaction.

She has a bruise and loosing her hair

IMG_6119

They said it should grow back, but it might take a year. She is taking anti inflammatory for 3 days and she is to have heat treatments. She is playing normal, running and jumping. I wouldn’t have noticed it if she didn’t get brushed all the time.

Scissor Holder For Grooming Shears

Paige  is my groomer for Abby. She comes to my home and makes our little girl beautiful… I love how Paige cuts Abby and Abby loves Paige. She always behaves for her. Paige also does Emma,  Timmi’s Maltese.

Paige has about 12 different shears she uses on dogs. I asked her when she was here on Tuesday if she would like some kind of scissor holder to keep them organized and together.  I came up with this . Each one will hold 3 shears.  I made them out of double sided quilted fabric. It was easy. just added bias tape. I flipped the sides of the fabric every other layer. 

IMG_6106

These are my shears. I only have 3 different kinds. Paige is teaching me how to groom Abby myself since she is going back to school.

IMG_6107

I am also thinking of some kind of roll up case.  Will see what I come up with on that idea.
