Truffles

Truffles is now 8 months old. I am so happy I got her; especially with the recent loss of our kitty Mocha.

Recently Truffles' kitten coat came out. Her hair is so thick that we weren't able to stay on top of brushing her.

I ended up taking her into our groomers with the thought that they would just need to shave her little tummy.

Sadly, that was not the case.



This was taken a few days after her shaving. Truffles was very embarrassed the first few days.



I still think she's adorable. Even if she looks so pitiful.

Mooses

This was Dave's Christmas present from 2008. I kept putting off the quilting of it. Every so often I would pull out all the threads for quilting it and than end up putting them away. I even had the quilt top hanging in the studio for about 5 months before I took it down.

Last weekend was the big day. I was going to quilt this!! I printed off some color photos of live moose off the internet so I could get all the details right; dug out 14 different colors of thread and went for it.



The quilt is little, roughly 40inches square and it took me around 8hours to quilt in total.

This is the eye section, lots of detail quilting,



And the antlers,



I am thrilled to have it done, as is Dave. I love how it turned out.

Now to get Rhonda's Christmas present finished.
