Doggies have new "Sack Beds"

As promised, I posted the little bed sacks I made for my little chi-children. These were super easy to make and I believe they are a huge hit. They are fleece on the outside and flannel on the inside. Completely machine washable so I may have to make another set if the girls get as attached to them as I think they will. I put them on the couch when I got finished and they knew right away they were theirs. I also carried them in the sacks right to my scrap room so they could hang out with me. Then when time for bed I brought them with me. Lady bug normally sleeps under the covers by my feet. If I move sometimes she growls and even has bitten at my toes! lol She is a bit of a grumble bug at times but we can't hold that against her. She didn't have the most stable home before we got her. She is so loving most of the time! So last night she slept in her new bed right up next to my chest (sorry Sam, I know that is YOUR spot!) As for Butterfly, she slept part of the night by my feet. I believe she felt sneaky since she was in her sister's spot. But by early this morning I pulled her up and in to her sack and she turned around and around then was snugly happy. I won't apologize for the love I feel for these girls, I am just grateful to have their love and companionship.

Muffins! Oh my goodness this was tedious!

Wow, this pattern for this pin cushion looked so easy. It only involved three pattern pieces. I had looked at the direction page before I bought the pattern. It seemed relatively easy. I even decided I would make one for my pal Rachel. So I cut them both out at the same time. I went ahead and finished one so I could take it to her tomorrow if I get a chance to see her. I am heading to Friendswood with my daughter to take her to her Dr's appointment. I know the picture doesn't show the detail of the muffin cup but it has many little tiny tucks sewn into it. The directions for the lace and the trim around the cup were to be hot glued on. I didn't like that because I felt it would make putting the pins in a strategic. So I hand sewed it on. Not a big deal but just took a little time and I know it is much more of a functioning pin cushion now. Anyways I will now sew the other one but not tonight! Rachel, just know I love you my friend!
