Furry Fridays & Tasha took over my quilt studio
I have had company in my quilt room lately as I'm dog sitting Tasha a long haired dachshund. Notice the water and food bowls.....yep, she has moved in! Actually I am watching her while her owner gets radiation treatments for 6 weeks. Tasha is a sweetie, very shy and would love to play with Sadie but......Sadie just ignores her.
Here is a closer look at her, Tasha gets a trim so you really wouldn't know she was long haired other than her ears have long hair on them. Notice the look she is giving me.....she doesn't like her picture taken either!
She is used to sitting next to her owner and sleeping in a chair so we had to haul a soft comfy chair down to my quilt studio as she wasn't too happy lying on a quilt on the floor. I actually have this chair pulled up right next to my table with my computer on it and she is now very happy. She even brought her own quilt, I think I made this one about 25 years ago. It is falling apart and the seams are all serged so it when I bought a serger when they first came out.
So far she gets to go home on the weekends. Sadie pretty much ignores her....hopefully next week I'll be able to get some pictures of them together.
Tasha looks pretty comfortable!
Last month the Island Batik ambassadors all made kennel quilts that were given to animals in shelters. I showed the kennel quilts that I made with our little rescue dog Sadie.
This month we will take turns sharing blog posts every Friday to help the Petfinder Foundation find homes for pets. My post isn't until next week but I was planning on doing a post about sweet little Tasha so I thought I would also include information here on
Visit Petfinder and read about Catnine who lived a hard life before she was saved by Zeus' Rescues in New Orleans: Both her leg and her jaw had been broken. Still, she adores people, and she's ready for a loving home that will help her heal! and June This gentle, house trained 6-year-old gal is comfortable around adults, children and other dogs, and even lived happily with a gecko! She's waiting for a new family at Animal Care Centers of NYC in Manhattan. - hopefully they will find forever homes soon!
There will also be a TQPM Virtual Kennel Quilt Retreat March 18 and March 19th that will be a perfect way to help animals. Be sure to check out the National Quilting Day Virtual Kennel Quilt Retreat.
