Friday Finish and Puppy Love

I have been really busy this past month and not much sewing. I also have had computer troubles. Sorry for not posting much. 

I got this table mat done. I have some of these heavy cork mats but they are looking sad so I made a cover for one of them. I used all selvages and used a "quilt as you go" method.  

There are some very cute selvages.

I have added the post to Crazy Mom Quilts

Here is the back, Limes. I first made the pocket in the middle but the cover would not go over the stiff mat so I had to change the opening at one end so the mat could go inside. I will know for next time.

Cuteness Overload.

I got a new puppy. This is Gemma my Black Lab Pup. Now you know what else has kept me busy. We picked her up Jan 1st at 8 weeks old. These photos are just a few days after we got home. I already need more new photos, she is growing. I have plans to do Agility with her. I might have to get in shape and learn to run faster. 

Here she is next to Lex, wow what a size difference. 

Now that I seam to have some of my computer trouble smoothed over maybe I can get back to posting a few times a week.  


  1. Love the mat with the pieces at odds, and that they are salvages - even better. So cute... and your puppy too. Thanks for getting back to blogging.

  2. A new puppy is definitely a computer diversion worth having!

  3. Oh she is soooo cute…have fun playing agility with her...
