Back in March of this year, Quilter’s Home Magazine sent out a photo stylist and photographer to take pictures of my home and studio.  Gregory Case and his wife Elena, work together as a team.  I’ve known them for years so it was a fun photo shoot, and of course their pictures are wonderful! Pick up the current issue (August/September) of […]

    Mary T. Salmon - Anne:
    Your husband is a pet lover’s dream! He is very confident in his love for animals to pick up that cat and continue on even with the cat biting him. He has a big heart. I pray the swelling goes down and he gets well soon.
    I loved the article. Your home is a dream come true. How do you get any work done with all those day beds? They are irrisistibly inviting. Thanks for sharing your world with us!
    Love and best wishes to your household!

    I’ll have to pick up a copy of Quilters Home – the pictures that you’ve posted are beautiful!ReplyCancel

    Ina - lol, okay, this time I read the entire post tense and concerned until the punchline: “stay calm and carry bitsy” made me laugh out loud…seriously, things need to calm down around your house. All of the commotion is getting me tense! ;0

    p.s. stay calm and eat chocolate after carrying bitsy to wherever that girl wants to go. hey, shouldn’t brigette be helping out with all of this carrying the little one around? ;0ReplyCancel

    Joanne Moore - Hi Anne,
    I say you are experiencing the Dog Days of Summer. Not sure what that saying really means but I labeled my week just that 2 weeks ago. My son had his wisdom teeth pulled on a Wednesday morning. By the time we got home, finished the gauze biting/spitting thing, iced up and he was knocked out on the pain meds, my cat Elliot walks up to me with his head split open. Of course it was right before the vet closed so they told me to bring him in 7:30 the next morning. As they diagnosed on the phone it was an abcess from a cat bite from a fight he had participated in a few nights back. So $350 later and a bag of pain syringes later, I was to apply warm compresses to this open wound twice a day as well as keep my son on his antibiotics, salt water rinse, ice bags and his pain meds. By Sunday my dog Lydia started with a runny tummy. My dear husband had the luck to get up before me on Monday morning to discover the disaster in our family room she caused during the night…thank goodness for tile. So $300 later that morning I was sent home with Lydia the wonder dog, and 3 different meds. My kitchen counter was lined up with bottles galore. Son, cat, dog, son, cat, dog Son..etc. I started to think I should be putting hot compresses on my head as well. On top of that my other cat, 14 yr. old Stewart William was scheduled for his rabies shot so that was a minor adventure to add to our activities. I share this with you to let you know you are not alone in this crazy world of animals. Thus I had just finished thinking that this must be what it means to experience the dog(cat) days of summer and then read your blog. Fortunately I can report everyone here is healed and tomorrow Lydia can start on regular dog food again. She did loose a few pounds. (Wish I would..HA) I hope your husband will feel better with each day. That sounds very painful. What we do for animals!!! Hopefully your pup is medically fine and just knows how to rule the kingdom. Good luck and much patience.
    Look forward to seeing the magazine.ReplyCancel

  • July 21, 2010 - 5:20 am

    Robin Gold - Hi Anne, you said your husband had the last of the shots. Was that the rabies vaccine? or just for the physical damage the stray cat did? You didn’t mention whether the tests came back on the cat for rabies, but just to ease your mind a bit, my husband, daughter, and I all had to go through the rabies series about 10 years ago (because we woke up to a bat in the house), and although they were uncomfortable, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I’d heard. Might be even easier now. Anyhow, best wishes to your husband — he is a softie (as is mine), and that’s a very good thing! (even if he didn’t exactly get rewarded for this particular time). I hope Bitsy’s doing better, too!! Best wishes, RobinReplyCancel

  • July 21, 2010 - 5:40 am

    Sue - Loved the article. Had to have the magazine when I found out it featured your studio.

    So happy your poor husband is doing better. Give him lots of TLC! He deserves it. And, hope they find out what is going on with Bitsy. Wonder if they have chiropractors for dogs? Anyway, hope both your patients are well and on the mend soon.ReplyCancel

  • July 21, 2010 - 5:54 am

    Barb - Thank you so much for the update on your sweet husband and your precious Bitsy. I do hope they are both on the mend and that your life gets back to normal (whatever that means, huh?)! When you read other people’s Comments, it’s amazing what life thows at us, isn’t it?

    I loved the article about you in Quilter’s Home – your home is Gorgeous! (with a capital “G”)!! Thank you so much for opening up your home to us and sharing it with us. And…especially thank you for sharing your amazing talents with the rest of us – you are so generous!!ReplyCancel

    Sandra - Thanks for letting us know what is happening. I feel like I should offer to come and help you but since I live in Canada I can just offer my best wishes to your hubby and poor little Bitsy. Animals do get traumatized and play on our heartstrings. Love your sign, Mothers are always Mothers.ReplyCancel

  • July 21, 2010 - 12:39 pm

    Vicki - I love the sign! Our poor dog, Chuck, always shakes like crazy on the way to the vet, and when he gets there he grins at everyone. They love that! We just found out he has diabetes, so I’ll be giving him insulin shots every day.

    Hope the hubby and Bitsy both return to normal very soon:)ReplyCancel

    Nancy C. in Utah - Well, I’m going to have to pick up the magazine. I’ve drooled over your studio several times…maybe this time I’ll wear a bib so I don’t drool on the pages *grin*. I truly do look at the photos of your studio and dream of even having my own simple sewing room, LOL. You would think at 60 years old I could have a room for my sewing but problem is health issues. Downstairs is the only place with a large enough room for my sewing goodies to be permanently placed but with Scleroderma, Utah winters are too cold down there unless we have a fire in the woodburning stove every day and that’s just not something we can do. So…I move everything downstairs for the few months we have warm weather, then my sewing machine and table, along with a few project baskets come up to the living room for the winter. Everything else stays downstairs. Consequently I do a lot of up and down the stairs for supplies, to go through my stash, books, magazines, etc. But the way I figure this, as long as I can sew, it really doesn’t matter does it? Nope, definitely not. LOL.
    Glad to hear your hubby is recovering. It sound like he really got batter during his heroic rescue! I also love your new motto. Keeping calm is the hardest part! Poor Bitsy, I truly hope she does well, and they can find out what the problem is. Bless all your hearts. My “little people dressed in fur” act exactly the same as Bitsy at the vets. Shaking to the point I worry about them. One of them actually has her temperature go up when she is in the vets office. They said it’s not uncommon! Sure makes it a nerve racking experience for us though. Well, I’m off to pick up the magazine and a nice absorbent bib…ReplyCancel

    Jean - Congratulations on the magazine spread!!! It’s a wonderful article with great pictures. Boy would I be a mess if a magazine was coming to take pictures of my house. I’d have Merry Maids over for a week straight, borrow all my friends quilts and antiques and rent a couple more pets! Your home is just beautiful and cheery and comfy looking. The colors are so complimentary. It reminds me of the Lecien fabrics. Sweet Sweet Sweet!!!ReplyCancel

    mimi'sdarlins - Hi, Anne. Congrats on the magazine spread, I need to get my copy while they’re still on the stands!
    Glad your husband is finished w/ his shots, poor guy! I hope Bitsy will soon be running again….maybe she’s just tired. I can relate, sometimes I wish someone would carry me around too, but so far no volunteers…maybe I need to put up a sign :-)ReplyCancel

    Denise :) - This was a wonderful piece! I was really pleased I’d picked up a copy of the magazine; it was a treat. I’m commenting several days behind, so I’ll go ahead and say here that I’m happy to hear your hubby is healing nicely. Oh, and I *love* your patterns! Baltimore Bunnies may be my all time favorite and I was pleased to see at least a bit of it pictured in the spread! :)ReplyCancel

    Sivje Parish - Oh your rooms are lovely Anne. I am praying for your puppy and your hubby. I will have to pick up the magazine because I am dying to know about the Goose Feather Farm sign. I LOVE it! And I still love those pink toile chairs too.
    I hope everyone heals in your house and your week goes beautifully well.ReplyCancel

I feel like I should be baking shamrock cookies or something exciting like that.  But yesterday this brown truck brought a box of sweets like you’ve never seen!  My heart skipped a beat and I could hardly breathe!  The box is filled with the sweetest of sweets and I’m in heaven. I know, it’s so bad […]
