Doxie Dog Fever

I’m back from Quilt Market and feel like I have a fever…Doxie Dog Fever!  These little dogs were a hit at market. Apparently a lot of you are Doxie lovers.  There’s something about those little long bodies and big droopy ears that we all seem to love. Here’s the real life Lulu sleeping on my sweater when […]

Hildy - Anne, thank you, thank you, you’re the best:-)
Love your Doxie dog it’s really cute especially in pink!
It says on Charlotte’s blog that the dogs will be good for 3-5 days … let’s face it they won’t survive this long with me.

May 29, 2015 - 11:15 am

DeAnna Dodson - Oh, the “Lulu” quilt is precious. When do we get to hear more about market?

Good to have you back. :)

Anita K - Your pups are adorable, and so are those cute buttons. Can’t wait to see your new pattern. Maybe making one of those quilts will cheer me up, my chihauhau, Boston Terrier mix “Scooter” went missing over a month ago and I miss him something terrible. Thanks So Much for Sharing your talent with us..

Katherine Schaffer - As the grammie to a mini Daschie (Stanzi by name) I just love the new pattern. No surprise that folks love daschies- they are the cutest ever and they have feet that smell like popcorn!!

May 29, 2015 - 10:44 pm

Nancy B. - Finally, some competition for Scottie dogs! I love the doggie pillow in pink, my favorite color!, and a Dachshund too, yippee! The quilt looks precious, the fabrics are perfect, I can’t wait to see the whole thing! We had Dachshunds when I was little. They are wonderful dogs.

Snow Happy Hearts for May

Hopefully you’re busy stitching away on your Snow Happy Hearts snow lady for May.  I’m a little late blogging about her, because I’ve had so many last-minute things to do to get ready for quilt market.  Just in case you haven’t seen the pattern yet, I’ve linked you to it below. Snow Happy Hearts May We’re […]

DeAnna Dodson - This may be my favorite of your hearts patterns so far. Love the sweet garland of flowers. SO Spring!

Lulu is darling. :D

Can’t wait to hear about your Market experiences.

May 9, 2015 - 11:41 am

Hildy - Love your snow lady! I really need to start with this project but so far I’ve downloaded all the patterns and printed them. Perhaps next week (due to a holiday on thursday it’s a three day week for me:-)
To sad that Mark didn’t give in and let you bring your two troublemakers … perhaps you should name two of the Lulu dogs after them (of course, Chelsea needs a pink one;-)
Have a great time at market (and wish Michaela Happy Birthday on tuesday)!

May 9, 2015 - 1:46 pm

mary stiles - love May’s snow heart. I am hoping to get going on them all now that I have finished quilting my Grandson’s hockey quilt.
I have a huge dog and 2 cats and they all hate when I leave them. Yours are so cute and your grand daughter is beautiful.
Happy market to you!!!

Mary T Salmon - Anne:
Michaela is going to be 15?? I can’t believe it! She is gorgeous, BTW…I love the little Lulu…I used to have doxies…
Thanks for the pattern for May. I have not started it yet. You are so generous. Have a blast at market. Yes, I wish I could go. I used to work market for a Peruvian import company. I loved meeting people and writing up orders!
Love,
Mary

May 9, 2015 - 8:06 pm

kshackabq - Your granddaughter is beautiful! Have fun at market. Can’t wait to hear all about it.

May 9, 2015 - 9:18 pm

Beth - Wonderful little snowlady, darling puppies, beautiful granddaughter, adorable pattern! This blog has so much happy :) Have fun at Market!

May 9, 2015 - 10:39 pm

Colleen - Beautiful granddaughter and her dog is lovely too. Your howling Milkshake made me laugh then cry we had a wonderful dog (over the rainbow bridge now) who would bark when the door bell rang at home or on TV. She didn’t go to the door she just barked until we asked her to stop or she tried of barking. She also was the dog that walked on the TV remote and turned the TV on or off or changed channels. She was wonderful she lost her hearing we knew because she stopped barking at the door bell sound she got cataracts and couldn’t see we found out when we moved and she got lost on the patio. She never stopped changing the TV though

May 10, 2015 - 12:31 am

Laura Lynch - Anne, Thank you for posting the daring Snow Gal pattern this month… she’s so cute… love the red check fabric background… I think I might have something similar in my stash. Michaela is beautiful & looks so grown up. Lulu is really cute (both the furry & fabric Lulu)! You’ve worked so hard to get ready for the show & I can’t wait to see pics of the show too! Have fun with all your designing friends!
Blessings,

Laura

Sue - Have a wonderful time at market. Thank you for the darling snowman heart.

May 10, 2015 - 5:05 am

Lee - I adore the new pattern! The pic of your granddaughter and Lulu is lovely! I love doxies!

May 10, 2015 - 5:34 am

Julie - Me & My Stitches - I have to laugh when you say your husband is looking forward to you leaving! Mine is the same way when I am getting ready for a show – but at least I know my kitties miss me!

May 10, 2015 - 5:50 am

mimi'sdarlins - Hi Anne,
Chelsea and Milkshake were obviously upset about not going along to Market after all their planning and scheming. You’ll have to bring back a special treat for them so they’ll know you were thinking of them. Your granddaughter is so beautiful, and how she’s growing! I can see why her sweet little dog inspired you….I love the new petite pattern and so does my youngest granddaughter :)

May 10, 2015 - 8:04 am

Kay - Your dogs are so sweet. I am sure you will miss them too, but still have lots of fun. x

May 10, 2015 - 9:30 am

Karen in Breezy Point - Lulu is adorable–reminds me of the dogs we used to autograph at the end of the school year. I guess that kind of dates me–oops!

May 10, 2015 - 3:30 pm

Vicky - Lulu and Michaela are adorable! Love your newest little critter!

May 11, 2015 - 6:16 am

Barb R. - Oh Miss Michaela is just beautiful! A very Happy Birthday to her. I hope she has a wonderful year ahead of her. And, of course, Lulu is so adorable.

Then there is Milkshake & Chelsea – just about the two sweetest doggies ever! You can see how disappointed they are that they can’t go to Market. They’ll have to take care of your husband while you’re gone – oh, I can tell there will be mischief while you’re away!!! LOL!

Have a wonderful time at Market – looking forward to reading all about it and lots of pictures.

And, of course, thanks again for the May Snow Happy Heart – soooo cute!!!

May 11, 2015 - 7:11 am

Pat Godkin - Thank you for a great blog update! Lots of news.
Lucky Lulu’s going to market.
Michaela is growing into a beautiful young woman! Her Lulu is a sweet companion too.
Love!

May 15, 2015 - 7:31 pm

Malinda - The pups look so sad that you are leaving! Looking forward to the market report!

May 16, 2015 - 7:46 pm

Peggy - Hope you are enjoying Market! Can’t wait to hear your market recap.

May 17, 2015 - 10:41 am

Gale - Your granddaughter is absolutely beautiful and the cute little dog sure deserves to have a pattern of her. Good Luck with market and I look forward to seeing photo’s in the near future.

Hugs to Chelsea and Milkshake, they look so sad :(

May 26, 2015 - 9:31 am

Corinne - Love the dogs, too cute. The ornaments are beautiful, thank you

Mary T Salmon - Oh Anne! Thank you! You are sooooo generous!
I have had many Doxies in my life. They are such a loyal & loving dog. Your new quilt is very adorable!
Love,
Mary

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!

March 4, 2015 - 8:25 am

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

March 4, 2015 - 9:03 am

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

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.

I love simple and easy projects.

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

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

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

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

December 15, 2014 - 4:05 pm

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.

Laura

December 30, 2014 - 9:02 am

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!
