It's a dog's life.....


Tarka (our dog) is very fond of Widget (our local living Grandson) , and Widget is very fond of Tarka....

Tarka is a bit portly in her older ages and Widget asked for a good word for 'fat' so that Tarka's feelings wouldn't get hurt!

We have a small tent which Pops and Widget put up on our front lawn and some 'quality' time was spent together....


Later when it got cold they came inside (nothing to do with getting dark and scary!!) 


... and I finished off stitching this block from The Splendid Sampler....


The next day Pops was away for work and it was a very cold wet day outside so Widget decided Tarka needed her own quilt....


a few hours later and Tarka gets tucked in....


... I have pulled out my Dutch Treat blocks to do some work on them....


Yup... cold weather means indoors activities and keeping snug under quilts....


Righto, Gotto Go.....  I wonder if the sun will shine today?

A boy and his dog is such a strong connection which has nothing to do with love, of course. It's just a bond, you know. (wink) Is this Widget first quilt? So cute to see him sitting at the sewing machine. Precious child. Enjoy. ;^)

It sounds like you all have been having a great time. I think Tarka must be a very patient dog. Great work for Widget to make such a special quilt.
