the newest member of our family.... Basil.

Here is Basil. He is my baby chihuahua who is 7 weeks old.
We tryed to weight him, but the scale wouldn't register, so I guess he is under a pound.

He has already won my heart. I love him. He will be making his first camping trip this weekend too. I'll let you know how he does on my camping blog when we get back.
I made a really cute bakit doggie harness to sell on Etsy. Of course it fits a chihuahua. This is Chile, He is about 8 or 9 pounds.



And I told you awhile back I would show you Miss Ward's end of the year wall hanging quilt. Miss Ward is Jonah's teacher. I finished quilting it. The end of the book says" teacher, teacher what do you see?". So I added a photo of Miss Ward at the bottom. Isn't she cute and she is as sweet as a button.



Progress is still coming along on my gerger flower quilt , ( no photo this time). I am getting about one block quilted a day. But I am leaving to go camping tomorrow. So 4 days without quilting on it.
Happy Sewing, Amy

Oh Basil you got my heart too! What a little sweetie! Nothing better than a new puppy. Well, except a new kitty. *G*

Love the quilt - putting her picture on it was absolutely inspired. What a treasure!

Oh is he cute!! Our 15 yr old chihuahua recently died, so little Basil tugs at my heart. He's adorable!!

Under a pound, that is almost nothing. But when you look at the picture it is a lot!
Love the teacher quilt. My kids knew the book by heart, not to mention me, I could read it with my eyes closed!

OMGOODNESS! Basil is so cute, and so is his name! I hope he has a blast on his first camping trip! I'm sure he will!

He is adorable! When we first got our little dog nine(!) years ago, she weighed 6 ounces. They are so small it is a little worrisome. The quilt is beautiful and I know his teacher will treasure it.

Your new, little, teeny, tiny chihuahua is more than adorable -- and wouldn't you know -- this is exactly what our soon-to-be 16 yr. old wants for her birthday.....

Jonah's teacher's quilt is so fabulous! My goodness, Amy -- you did such a wonderful job on this. As a teacher, I know that is one very special gift.

I love the idea of incorporating the teacher into the Brown Bear quilt. I made a very hungry Caterpillar Quilt for my daughter who teaches kindergarten. I am going to make Brown Bear over this Summer vacation so she can use it in the Fall. I'll ask her if she wants to be a part of the quilt like Ms. Ward. Thanks for the inspiration!
