More things for Nadia

This week I finally got off a package of things for Nadia. In addition to the rainbow blanket I made for her (see July 21 post), I sent this piggy bank. Her sisters each have a large pig bank. I wanted hers to be a bit different. I found it at the Hallmark store in Clarkston.
I went to my local favorite quilt shop and saw this adorable diaper/tote bag all made up. There was not pattern, so I took some pictures (with permission), bought the fabric and made it. The inside (not visible) is a pretty pink flowered fabric with pockets. It was a challenge to make something without a pattern.

Dudley is here

We have our puppy and his name is Dudley, not Quincy. He is so soft and fluffy and very young (6 weeks) which means getting up with him in the middle of the night. We are going to a graduation/birthday party today and he is going along (lots of teenagers to play with).
Oscar, our 6 yr. old Golden, isn't too sure about this intruder. But he needs a playmate as soon as Dudley gets bigger.
