But you gotta love this face!

So we have been finding bent safety pins all over the place, and who in this house uses lots of safety pins but the quilter, right? But, I say innocently, I haven't pin basted a quilt lately and my tin of pins is sitting with its lid closed on my sewing table. Then I notice Scruffee, chewing on ... something...


The little nut has been pulling the safety pins out of a basted quilt that I had laid across my cedar chest and then chews the top off and mangles the straight part. Potential for major OUCH, Scruffee!


Here are some happy pincushions I made a while back from this pattern: http://www.quiltmaker.com/patterns/patt95.pdf. (Sorry, I can't seem to make the link thingy work.) They are fun to make while watching TV.

Yipee! You joined Connie's Swap! I think we should put out the call to all quilters NOT to name their pets Scruffee/Scruffy -- it's a bad omen. Our cat is named Scruffy and he eats ribbons and gets into big trouble. I love, love, Love, LOVE the quilt you put on your first post -- it's fabulous!
