Another Celebration

Today marks the anniversary of the adoption of my Tom Sawyer. Eight years ago today we signed the papers and made him ours. He has come so far.

From the shy dog who spent 16 hours in his kennel that first night to a hound who now shares our bed at night. Happy gotcha day Tommie Boy!

A Special Quilt

A little project I have been working on. This bow tie quilt is made from a few of my dad's favorite plaid shirts. I took a bunch of his shirts and have had them stashed away for a while now. It has always been my intention to make pillows or quilts out of them. So when my daughter found out she was pregnant, I knew the baby would be the first one to get a quilt.

The baby shower/cookout was this past Saturday, so I was under the gun to get this finished. I presented it to her when the family arrived. Worried there might be tears, I figured it was better to do it before everyone got here. I will post more about the "mustache bash" later. I'm off to work now!
