The adventures of a knit designer, her dog, and yarn stash. I'm the author of Doggie Knits, Sweaters and Accessories for Your Best Friend.

If you think I'm nuts for making quilts for my dog, the fact is, she really uses them. I put it down for her, and she knows that she needs to roll in it, and twist her face in it. All of my dogs did the face twisty thing. I think it's a Pekingese mannerism, probably because of that face wrinkle. It's the cutest thing. This is the flip side of the spotted quilt that I posted a few days ago. It's like a double faced quilt! I improvised the design with strips and patches. Is this a barn raising? Fabrics are Tammis Keefe, Denyse Schmidt, Moda, and some assorted reproduction vintage.
Piccolo was super playful when I took this shot. She was attacking and killing her little squeaky lamb, and playing catch with it. Something about my mother's home makes her frisky.
