As you may recall, we have two Australian Shepherds named Roxie (age 7) and Ruby (age 4). Ruby is the younger, more animated pup–while Roxie is the undisputed alpha.
Roxie is the strong, silent type…the dog you can count on when there’s trouble around (deer, moles, Ruby getting out of line…)
She is very calm and sweet, and is most often found right by my side or snoozing at my feet.
and her favorite place in the entire house…?
…On a quilt by my sewing machine! A loyal sewing buddy!

If you have three minutes to spare today, I think you will enjoy this very short video about a Dutch artist named Theo Jansen.

Another cold day in sunny Minnesota… I hope to get time in my sewing room. I am working on a free motion quilting project/tutorial using all of the motifs we have learned so far. I hope you have been practicing! Even if you don’t have time to stitch the motifs, it is very helpful to practice doodling them on paper. Please check out the Quilts tab above and try one tutorial each day this week. Anyone interested in a Link Up—sharing photos of your doodles or practice pieces? I’d love to see them!
