 Here's my beloved Fred.
He lost his best dog friend this week...
our dear rescue Lilalou

I just couldn't focus on the sadness.
She came from the shelter
with some issues
and over our seven years together
she completely healed (!)
and became a trusting, joyful, and loyal companion.

Time to celebrate!
I played in my scraps
joy was found!

I also made some happymatts for Christmas.

I have three left that need a binding.

I am also working on my third lattice quilt 
from the book Colorific.
So much fun going through my stash
and the visual pop is so rewarding.

I finally finished my Domestic Bliss quilt!
Whoop Whoop!

I was able to ask my youngest and his friend to hold it up...
no school...
it's snowing!
(Not a common experience here in the Pacific Northwest.)


A new year is quickly approaching...

Any changes coming your way?


  1. Love that happy house quilt of yours--as usual all that you make is creative and and originally gorgeous! I am sorry you lost your buddy...time has a way of marching on and that's why we have to try to enjoy our time with all our friends each day. glad you found some best to you during the holidays...hugs, Julierose

  2. So sorry for your loss, Stephanie. Our fur babies hold such a special place in our hearts, don't they? Your work is so very creative! And wasn't the snow fun today? My girl built a snow family and managed to get the sled moving down our driveway! So fun!


  3. I'm sorry about your Lilalou - so good she had a loving family. Wheee, love that Domestic Bliss!!!

  4. I love your happy celebrations of your pouch's good life with you. So many fun things here.

  5. Lilalou sitting in my chair I love it... You honored her well!!!
