The best dottie mini charm quilt ever

Guess what I’ve got for you today?  It’s the best Dottie Mini Charm Quilt Kit ever, according to Milkshake! I promise, if she thinks this kit is great, it is!  You’ll want to grab one of these kits while we have them in stock, because the pattern I designed to go with it is FREE!   […]

mimi'sdarlins - Oh, so darn cute! I can never resist dots, have been collecting them for years and one of these days want to make a big quilt out of them. Love the button idea too….who doesn’t love buttons on a quilt? I see the look in Chelsea’s eye but Milkshake is obviously ignoring her. I’d stay out of this one, just let them work it out for themselves :)

March 4, 2015 - 6:34 am

Barb - Oh Anne, you’ve done it again. This Dottie Mini Charm Quilt is just too, too cute. I just love those little dots! I’m heading over to check out the kits on your website.

And as much as I love the Dottie, I absolutely love those pup-steers!!! Milkshake and Chelsea are just so cute! I wonder what they are looking at? Don’t you love how everything is just interesting to a dog? Give ‘em both a hug and a scratch from me.

Thanks for sharing them with us!

DeAnna Dodson - Awww, that’s darling! I’ve been collecting polka dots for a long time. Someday I will make me a quilt that will burn everyone’s eyes. But it will be bright and happy! Hee hee.

Your dogs are SO cute! I especially love Milkshake. She looks a lot like my little girl cat, Eddie. She’s a tuxedo cat and so sweet.

March 4, 2015 - 8:46 am

Mary T Salmon - Anne:
You come up with the cutest projects! Does Milkshake come with the kit?
I won 3 of these at QuiltCon in Austin last week. I had no idea what to do with them until now. Thanks so much.
Love,
Mary

Hildy - Oh, your quilt pattern is so cute and yet simple I love it! And you can never be wrong with dots especially pink ones … right, Chelsea?;-)

March 4, 2015 - 10:22 am

Teresa - Thanks Anne that’s a lovely design

March 4, 2015 - 11:29 am

Marcia - That is so adorable, great idea for displaying shop hop pins. If you ever think of it could you tell us more about Milkshake? Did she adjust quickly and all settled in and happy?

March 4, 2015 - 8:56 pm

Sharon Whelan - So charming! Love it, Anne!

March 4, 2015 - 9:09 pm

Beth - So, so cute! And, YAY, for pics of Milkshake and Chelsea! I always love your pet blogs. So glad those two are friends :)

March 5, 2015 - 3:45 am

Linda W - Thank you. I love mini charms and mini quilts.

March 5, 2015 - 3:59 am

Susan - This is so cute! And you are right, it will be perfect for Easter. And everyone loves a quick, simple project now and then!!

March 5, 2015 - 5:59 am

Malinda - What a cute little quilt (but cuter pups!), thanks for the pattern!

March 5, 2015 - 7:18 am

Jackie - Thank you for the cute pattern!

March 5, 2015 - 7:36 am

Karen in Breezy Point - I love Milkshake’s expression in the first photo–priceless! I don’t think she can believe that sweet pattern is FREE!!

March 5, 2015 - 12:54 pm

Danicia - I love, love, love your fabrics and patterns. I take my projects with me even when I travel. Keep up the great work.

Moochers

I was going through pictures today and I found some of Moochers my cat. Moochers, I can’t believe we named her that, the poor cat.  She was such a frail thing when she found us, and the name didn’t fit at all.  But there we were in the vet’s office and they asked me her name.  Moochers was all […]

Letty - Okay, the shot that made me laugh out loud was the one with his legs spayed out straight behind! He’s adorable!

December 2, 2014 - 5:07 pm

Letty - Okay, I just gawped at the pictures and didn’t read first. Moochers is a SHE! Sorry Miss Moochers.

December 2, 2014 - 6:09 pm

Barbara - Moochers was a very lucky cat to be adopted into your family. She looks like she is having quite the nice life. Thanks for sharing her pretty face with us.

December 2, 2014 - 6:13 pm

Anita - Such a sweet face, thank you for the update. No decorating in my house just yet. Happy holidays.

December 2, 2014 - 6:14 pm

patricia G Hayes - Ms Moochers is such a lovely color. So now you have a full family. Two doggies, a cat, is that enough now or will there be more to add sometime.
Anne. You are special.
I too enjoy the photo of her wither legs splayed. Cats are so fun, we have a three quarter siamese and never cease to notice new things about her and her antics even though she is eight and a half she is still going strong. Sleeps with us every night, is such a member of the family. Just us three, dad mom and Suki. Suzi rules though, does your Ms M?? Patricia G

Mary T Salmon - Anne:
I can feel the love between you and Moochers…such a wonderful connection.
Love,
Mary

December 2, 2014 - 7:54 pm

Tina - I love the picture of her laying on her tummy with her legs sticking out behind her – Too funny!!! ;o))

December 2, 2014 - 8:13 pm

Miss Jean - We had a cat once that we named Uegly – pronounced you-glee. The girl we got her from said she was ugly and had named her that. She grew up to be a beautiful part Siamese cat.

December 2, 2014 - 8:39 pm

DeAnna Dodson - Awww, isn’t she just precious! I so much want to hug her. :D

December 2, 2014 - 10:25 pm

Nancy B. - Precious kitty love :)

December 3, 2014 - 12:14 am

Hildy - She’s beautiful! My cats are 10yo now and it shows. They stay more inside where it’s warmer and the connection between us grows stronger every day. As much as I love kitties I think it’s even better when they’re older:-)

December 3, 2014 - 12:29 am

michele - hello
years ago in my family we had a similar cat , same color ,same fur . All the cats inour home were called POMPON.
each time my mother thought it is a male . No no she was and of course she gave birth.
I like Moochers
cordially

Megan - So precious, so beautiful.

December 3, 2014 - 5:23 am

Sue H - She is beautiful …. love her color!!! My own Polly has a Sherpa bed like Moochers and she also lays out with legs straight behind her! They could maybe be friends???!!!!

December 3, 2014 - 6:15 pm

Ronda - Sweet kitty! I think the name suits her! We always start decorating the day after thanksgiving ( that is unless black Fridays hasn’t kicked our tails). I love Christmas decorations and I love looking at my tree when all lit up! The last 2 years the season seemed short and we haven’t put up all or Christmas décor:( Maybe the old saying is true the older you get the faster the year goes by lol. Looking forward to the new site.

December 4, 2014 - 6:10 am

Barb - Moochers is truly a beauty! What a really pretty girl.

Am I correct, but don’t you have at least 2 other cats – I think they are black kitties. Or am I wrong & confused?

Anyway, give Moochers a scratch on the head from me :-)

December 4, 2014 - 7:14 am

mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne,
I’m sure Moochers doesn’t mind her name at all…I expect when she found you she was happy to be called anything :)
Thanksgiving is usually the go ahead to turn on the outdoor Christmas lights and begin to transition the house from autumn to winter decorating. All that said, I’m a bit slow to start this year but today am hanging garland outside to welcome visitors. Happy Holidays :)

December 4, 2014 - 8:20 am

ina - what a beautiful kitty….love the name. ;p

December 15, 2014 - 10:47 am

Ginger - I know this post has been up for a couple of weeks, but I have read it 2-3 times. The photos of Moochers are wonderful. What a great name and great photos of a beautiful cat. Thanks for sharing your critters with us. I love to read about animals and their humans.

blessings and Merry Christmas,
Ginger Gwartney

Laura Lynch - Ann,

Moochers is so beautiful!! God knew exactly what home needed Moochers & what home Moochers needed . . . a great match! I’ve done several cat, dog, guinea pig & bird rescues in my time . . . they are always the best pets . . . I think they KNOW they’ve been saved! You are a kindred spirit (reference from one of favorite movie series, Anne of Green Gables w/Megan Fellows).

I start decorating after Thanksgiving . . . but some years it takes me a week or so to decorate.

greg - She’s such a beautiful cat! Those eyes! I had to do a bit of name changing when I brought my two cats home from the shelter, too. And of course, they love to help with quiltmaking… although I’d rather work alone!

My family is here!

Guess who’s visiting? It’s my family from Germany and I’m just in heaven! My grand-daughter Lily just turned 3 and she chats away in both German and English. If she’s talking in German to me, I can say “Lily, tell Grandma in English” and she’ll translate. It’s amazing to see what children can do when […]

mimi'sdarlins - Oh, I”m so happy for you! I’m sure you just live for these visits. We are blessed to have our family nearby, but it wasn’t always this way, and I still pinch myself that we’re all together again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful granddaughter, and enjoy all the special moments these days will bring :)

July 1, 2014 - 7:23 am

Mary T Salmon - Anne:
I am so happy for you! I know the feeling well. Lily is an absolute doll, as your other granddaughter. Mine is two and a demon at times. So stubborn. She will need it in this world. She is so inquisitive. I love watching her.

Have a wonderful time and take lots of pictures!
Love,
Mary
Happy 4th…I will pray for rain.

July 1, 2014 - 7:44 am

Louise - Oh my, Lily has grown so.. What a little sweetie. Our family for the time being all living in different states, and I am hoping it won’t always be so. Chicago, Newport Beach, Surprise, Az and we are up here in the very Pacific Northwest. We enjoy their visits so much but they never seem to last long enough! Enjoy the 4th of July, be safe.

July 1, 2014 - 8:03 am

Pam in Indiana - Oh, Anne, I’m so happy for you! Our five kids are all out of state — but our son just moved back from Monterrey, Mexico after three years. He just arrived back at Notre Dame for a year so were really glad he’s back in the States. Our youngest is flying home tonight from Omaha with our first and only grandson, Henry, for his baptism on the 12th. Everyone will be home except for Molly who is a nanny in Oklahoma.

Then I go to Michigan for my quilt week with my six BFFs at Kristen’s lake cottage.

Love seeing sweet Lily — that is so wonderful that she is bilingual. Meredith is taking Mandarin and is teaching Henry — they’re such little sponges at this age.

Enjoy your time with everyone. Our house is about to get wild for a few weeks but I love it. I miss the old days with all the kids!

DeAnna Dodson - Awww, isn’t Lily beautiful! And I just love Milkshake. She looks so sweet and huggable. :D

I’m jealous of Lily’s ability to speak two languages fluently. That’s such a wonderful thing to be able to do.

I hope you all have a wonderful time and a fun, safe 4th of July!

July 1, 2014 - 8:09 am

sunny - ~~sigh~~ I guess now I have to learn how to punchneedle. I don’t NEED another hobby, but a girl has to make certain sacrifices… Lily can’t possibly be 3! You just announced her birth a month or so ago. Didn’t you?? Enjoy all the lovely family time that you can.

July 1, 2014 - 9:47 am

Hildy - Anne, it’s so great that your family is visiting you and you all have a great time. It’s sweet to see Lily walk the dogs I’ll bet she thinks she’s a big girl now as she can walk a dog all be herself.
Enjoy your time with your family:-)

July 1, 2014 - 11:24 am

becky m - I live for those visits from my family too. The letdown afterwards is so hard though. Especially with my 5 yr old who doesn’t quite understand about distances yet. I love that Lily is bi-lingual! My daughter has a 5 yr old friend who is bilingual French and English. She also thinks nothing of switching from one language to the other and it’s amazing to watch!! Keep those languages up for her, she’ll love you for it!

July 1, 2014 - 11:50 am

Lisa E - Yes, it’s been hot in the Bay Area. I’m so glad that your family is visiting you. Can’t beat the little ones!

July 1, 2014 - 2:45 pm

Susan - I am very lucky that all my children live here (Az.) with the exception of my oldest granddaughter who lives in Portland Or..
Your granddaughter is beautiful and I know the moments you spend with her and family are precious. Love all your fabric and your punch needle work….:)Enjoy making wonderful memories with your family!

July 1, 2014 - 3:20 pm

Linda Hnath - Thank you for sharing your family’s visit with us all. How wonderful that you are all together. Hugs for Milkshake and hoping she does ok on the 4th.

July 1, 2014 - 3:52 pm

PAtricia G Hayes - Hello Dear Anne. thanks so much for sharing your adorable young blond, Lily, with all of us.
What a special time for your gift visit from Germany. I am so happy these times for you.

I wonder if you ever got my thanks and thanks and thanks for my wonderful gift of fabrics that were waiting for me when we got home from NH. We had been visiting with our three yr old GGrands twin boys who had arrived from NY to visit with us for a week. Blessed are these visits, little girls and boys, any little people for sure. Makes us young again, heh!
I tried to find an address to send a proper thanks you note to no avail. So sorry that you have to receive this way.

marcia - Have a wonderful time with the family. I have a spot in the closet where I will be hidden with my girls.

July 1, 2014 - 5:24 pm

Barb - Oh Anne, Lily is just too precious! All of your granddaughters are so beautiful!! I can just imagine you are in heaven to have your family with you – enjoy and cherish every moment!

Love the doggies,too – so cute!

Happy 4th of July to you!!

July 1, 2014 - 5:50 pm

Anita - Lily is so precious! What a great benefit to her to be able to understand two languages, I’m sure it will come in handy throughout her life. Love your new pattern too :)

July 1, 2014 - 6:36 pm

tammy spencer - Happy 4th of july (coming in a few days). Today, we celebrate our Canada Day here. Lots of fireworks in the plans for tonight. It’s very hot here as well and the pool is getting well used. Lots of family these past 2 weeks with family from out of town as well (between 12-40 people for dinner every night). I think this summer is going to be a hot one and I’m grateful for the wet pool to cool off in. Your grand daughter is beautiful- how nice it would be to have learned an extra language when young. Enjoy your family time and have a happy summer.

July 1, 2014 - 7:53 pm

Janet - I can’t believe how grown up Lily is! Here’s hoping all your furry ones have an easy 4th. It’ll be interesting to see how Milkshake does!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your wonderful patterns – this thanks goes to the Sweet Dreams Lily quilt pattern. I re-sized your teddy bear block and made it red and the corner block on a navy/white churn dash for my new Great Nephew … may be my fave quilt yet!

Have a blast!

July 1, 2014 - 8:04 pm

Carmen CountryMouse - How wonderful! Enjoy your time with family, it always goes too fast. Lilly is just darling!

July 1, 2014 - 8:10 pm

Jeanne Jones - Janet, I have two daughters. Each daughter has one boy. One of the daughters lives 5 minutes away, but the other one lives 2000 miles away. We live in Atlanta, GA and she lives in Tucson, AZ. We see her about once a year and she and my grandson will be here on Saturday for 2 weeks. I know just how you feel. Thank goodness for Skype, we use it 3-4 times a week.

July 1, 2014 - 10:06 pm

rpsa - Great pics.Have a wonderful time with them!

July 2, 2014 - 2:18 am

Dawn - Hi Anne, That’s a lovely photo of Lily and Milkshake, brought a big smile this morning, thanks for sharing.
Good news about the patterns going on PDF, the postage to UK is crazy. Also when I post to USA its gone up, so looking forward to that as I would like to make the reindeer for christmas gifts.
Happy 4th July

July 2, 2014 - 5:45 am

Doreen - Hi Anne, I have a brother and sister-in-law in Belgium and my 2 year old niece is learning language the same exact way as your beautiful grandaughter. German/English and now a little italian. They are coming to the US the end of September. I know exactly what you are saying about getting ready to go out and the increase in food bills. We like on a lake and in the summer it seems to be the vacation destination. It is fun since all six kids live in different places. I adore when they come to visit. It is an adjustment when the quiet comes after they leave. It just makes us miss them more. Enjoy your time…. Spoil your grandaughter…Life is too short, breath in every moment. Happy 4th! Hugs, from NH

Karen Martin - Looks like you will have a fun and busy fourth–love the new project–so cute!

July 2, 2014 - 3:29 pm

Lorraine Isaac - I just had my family visit as well, I have a grand daughter 41/2 and a grand son 21/5, they are so precious, I never knew being a grand mother would feel so special

July 2, 2014 - 6:00 pm

Ronda - Oh Anne how wonderful to have all your babies home. We are very blessed to all live in the same town so I see my granddaughters almost daily. We just got back from a vacation to Gulf Shores beaches and we took the family. It was so much fun and sooo much work all at the same time but wonderful memories were made. I hope you get to continue to enjoy your family as long as they can stay!!!! cant wait to see the new web site!

July 2, 2014 - 8:11 pm

Yvonne - Lovely to hear all about your family, I see very little of my children (8 in all) they are scattered around the world, but it is such a treat when they come home to visit.
Have a wonderful time & treasure every moment,
Happy 4th July

ina - happy 4th to you and your family! i’m hoping for sewing time and cooler weather. ;p

July 5, 2014 - 9:00 pm

Ann P, - Lily is beautiful! Enjoy your time with your family. A week ago we had all six of the grandchildren for a weekend. We had so much fun. While I was tired when they all went home, our house felt so empty. We love to take family vacations but unfortunately it is hard to organize those very often. I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July.

July 7, 2014 - 10:43 am

Jeanne - Lily is precious. Milkshake is so sweet and adorable napping with Lily. How did he do with the fireworks? My dog was fine, 1st year for the 4th. Hope Milkshake did well, too.
I saw your stroller. I think its a Pet Gear? Do you know which type of stroller? I’m looking for one for my dog.
Thanks so much for all the appliqué kits you do. Love them!
Jeanne

Jackie Roisler - Lovely photos & sentiment Anne :) Thank you so very much for sharing.

July 8, 2014 - 4:58 pm

Kim - Aren’t children just so smart, I wish we start languages for our children in kindergarten instead of high school here in the USA.
I have a granddaughter named Lily too, she’ll be six in August and she lives far away from me, so we travel to see her and sometimes she travels to the beach in NC to see me. Enjoy your visit with Lily she will grow up so fast!
Good luck with your website and
Happy Sewing

July 11, 2014 - 8:16 pm

Mary Ann - Its always fun to have a houseful of sweet little faces and their very loved Mom and Dad’s. 2 of my daughters and their families moved to bay area last year so we have been more the visitors. Our house is so quiet most weekends now. I am getting a few more projects done but i would trade that off in a minute to run over for a breakfast together. And I know how hard it must be for you to have Lily so far away! looking forward to the new projects and website Anne.

July 15, 2014 - 7:32 am

Sarah - Lily is beautiful. Bilingual people are so clever I think. How long have you got the family from Germany visiting you?

Cotton Candy

Look what I bought for Valentines Day! A pink fluffy dog bed.  I just couldn’t help myself! I just hope I don’t have to end up buying two; one for Chelsea and one for Milkshake.  My studio could start looking like a cotton candy store! Anne :>)

Patricia G Hayes - Anne, I just giggle when we all hear from you. Your new baby looks so comfy buried in her pink fluff. Good for you, I would not have passed it up either. You have just the best way to live with your business, your pets, your family, etc., plus entertaining us also. thanks, keep it up\
Your little baby girl’s eyes want to melt my heart. I am happy she belongs to you and not me, I couldn’t make her behave, etc, I’d be a sucker for her.

Janan - Milkshake is so adorable, she looks like she is in heaven!

February 5, 2014 - 7:14 pm

Bambi - I think you just HAVE to get one for Chelsea!

February 5, 2014 - 7:19 pm

Jean - Looks like Milkshake is tickled pink to be living in Bunny Hill Land!

February 5, 2014 - 9:49 pm

Sandy - It’s so wonderful that you were rescued by Milkshake! I think Chelsea would like one of those pink fluffy too!

February 5, 2014 - 10:40 pm

eva - Definitely get another one, it is adorable! Milkshake is very lucky and looks so happy in the fluffy pink cloud.

February 6, 2014 - 2:02 am

Vicky - I love her black and white on the pink bed! She’s so beautiful!

February 6, 2014 - 5:28 am

Nancy in Utah - My goodness, your newest family member looks incredibly comfy there. I’m thinking Chelsea just might ask for her own fluffy bed too…be prepared, LOL. Adorable pictures, thanks so much for sharing. Big, big Hugs…

February 6, 2014 - 8:02 am

Becky M - oh my, that looks too comfy! I would be snuggling up with her!. :)

February 6, 2014 - 8:26 am

Barb - Well, Chelsea certainly deserves one of her own but sometimes doggies like to lay close to each other. Do they share? or do they like to be separate?

Milkshake looks like the princess that we all know she is!! So precious!

February 6, 2014 - 1:29 pm

Cheryl in Kansas - You know Chelsea has to have one also, don’t want any sibling rivalry :-) milkshake is so sweet looking. Remember…there is nothing wrong with pink cotton candy….yum! Take care!

February 6, 2014 - 5:05 pm

Pauline - OMG Anne…Milkshake looks so content…like he has been part of your family forever. Luv the pink bed! I think Chelsea and Milkshake could snuggle on one…it looks big enough!! hugs Pauline

February 10, 2014 - 6:43 am

Wendy - Somebody looks pretty comfy in their new pink bed. So happy you found her!

February 11, 2014 - 7:33 pm

Anne Beale - Hi Anne,

Milkshake looks perfectly content on her fluffy pink bed but I do think that Chelsea will need one also. Both of your doggies have such sweet faces and dispositions to match ( I am sure) I hope Milkshake is settling in. I think that if I were a puppy I’d like to reside in your studio.

Warmest regards

Anne

Linda Enslow - I love your Believe pillow and am looking forward to making my version. Your framed B is adorable as well. I feel inspiration knocking.
