It is raining out, and 7 AM, dark... Went to my studio to look through and clean up so I could do some work.. Came across the "Doggy Bag"directions from Quilts and More Fall 2010.
I had just dumped the food for our dog Wolfee into a container, and saw this dog image on the bag. Perfect for Rio, our friend Jean's Search and Rescue dog.. It was fun.. I did add a few things like duck tape to cover the inside stitching for the polyester webbing. I thought with the bigger stitches, that might be a weak spot.. Jean will get the directions also,, this is a one time creation.
Not that is was not fun, or a great idea.. but I have a stack of great ideas sitting on the work table.. and need to sort!
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
