Lila inside for a photo shoot before hubby came home (and thank you so much for keeping my secret!)..... I couldn't let Callie in because she just created chaos once inside.
Yes....so much has changed. We have moved to the other end of the country and ..... guess what? the girls live indoors!!!!! I know, I know! I can see all of you with your jaws nearly touching the ground! It was born out of necessity as we don't have a decent dog fence to keep them safe and also it is much colder where we are. They have adapted so well to the change and I am in my element to have my two babies with me all day.....my little shadows that follow every step I take! Now, this next photo collage is very important because it shows just how MUCH they do everything together.
|Having a drink.. together, sitting patiently looking at the view..together, stood watching me cook..together, getting up to no good..together|
Zoom forward to today and not so much togetherness going on. I have put two of my quilts out......the blue quilt I made (over 15 years ago) was laid on the floor because it has been used to death by my growing kids and I am happy for the dogs to lie on it. The quilt should have been big enough for a single bed but I made a rookie mistake of sewing the complicated blocks (Hidden Wells) on two different sewing machines and the blocks were completely different sizes so it ended up as a lap quilt.
together with my most recent finish....draped on the chair nearby which was made for a challenge late last year......click HERE if you would like to see more about that. Go ahead, I will still be here when you get back.
It was easy to get Callie to come over for a look and she happily made her self at home but Lila was getting her diva on......no how, no way was she going to sit on that quilt to get her photo taken! So here is my favourite one of Callie sharing the blanket with her favourite teddy instead.
I tried everything to get Lila to sit or lie there as well.....even Callie asked her by giving her that 'get over here and join me" look... but she was having none of it and just photobombed us.
So be sure to head over and either link your own Pet on a Quilt or just enjoy the show. If you would be so kind and vote for my darling Callie in the Category of Dog on a Quilt how happy we would be. HERE is the link. You have got until the 27th August.
Update: After holding off posting for hours, my little princess Diva, aka Lila, decided to give that quilt a try afterall.......not committing though and only half lying on it.
If you want to see more of these two, then listen up.....This year also sees me blogging about our new life here in the very south of Australia...really down under. You can see what I get up to in my kitchen, in the garden and see what it is like to live on my little slice of Eden...and in Tasmania. So please come over for a look....new friends are always welcome to Cath@Home and invited to have a chat anytime.
