Tuesday Archives # 17 - Dogs & Dots

It's Tuesday Archives and all about dogs and dots.  I certainly have some special things to share about dogs today.  My very first blog post introduced my 'real-life shadow'.......... Kody.  He is now a 9 year old sheltie, always under foot and he has some control issues.  My sewing room is at the back of the house.  He loves to be outside but he must keep track of me, so whenever I'm in the sewing room, he can do both.


This year I commissioned an internet friend in Nebraska to make an applique of Kody.  She did it via this photo.  I gave her cart blanche as to size or design.  She loves detail and I knew it would be a wonderful piece.  It is also beautifully quilted.  I am glad it is wall hanging size. It is displayed in my dining area.  You can find the creator, Sarah Lynn  HERE .

I'm linking up with Val's Quilting Studio where you will find lots more posts about special dogs and dots.

Have a happy day and thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Found y ou by way of Rebecca in AK - just had to check out your sweet sheltie! We have 3 of those little barkers and herders. You are so right - they love to be underfoot and outside. What a wonderful pictorial quilt featuring your Kody.

  2. Kody is really cute and I love the applique wall hanging of him xx

  3. Kody looks like a sweetheart! What a wonderful pictorial quilt Sarah made of him! My American bulldog loves it outside, but she has to run inside every little bit to check on me!

  4. OMG!! I love this quilt!! Your friend did an awesome job of catching Kody's spirit!! Life would be so quiet without our loyal companions for sure!! SOOO glad you linked us to this post!! Thanks kat!

  5. What a great quilt. It's wonderful to have your best friend captured in a quilt.
