Doing my best to spread the sewing/quilting addiction.....

Better known as, FINALLY SOME SEWING CONTENT FOR THE BLAWG!!

Tonight Laurie and Billy came over after work, for dinner and for a project. Poor Billy was pooped, as he had worked in the body shop all day, and then worked on his own car right afterwards, replacing his brakes. (I envy him the savings and the satisfaction of being able to do that!)

After recharging over a haphazardly created dinner (burgers, salad, ravioli with meatballs, and some strawberries and whipped cream we never got around to.... see? haphazard and completely discombooberated!), Billy and Michael watched some old Twilight Zone TV, and Laurie and I headed upstairs.

She made a bed for Bella! She layered the skull material, over batting, and stitched it onto a black background slipcover......















Which unfortunately we had zipped shut before she sewed the last bit, and briefly we panicked.... But Billy finagled it open and.....















We stuffed in the foam mattress and the bed was done!
















Bella tried it out and apparently liked it just fine! She even shared a corner with Sadie....















It was a short evening, but a fun one! Wonder what Laurie's next project will be??

Laurie - congratulations! That is a cool doggie bed you made! Maybe if I make something like that, Moses will stay off my porch furniture..... Love you, Aunt Jackie
