Since June of 2001, I have been making weekly quilts. Each year the size and shape change and each week the surface design relates to something that happened that week or just playing around with color and design. This year our sweet Maggie had liver and kidney failure and I had to make the dreaded call to end her suffering. I made the quilt on the left the week she died. I was going to try and live without a dog in my life because it would make things simpler. I finally realized that I didn't just want another dog, I needed one. On Saturday, I adopted Penny from the Amherst County Humane Society and I am so happy. If you are looking for a furry friend, please consider contacting your local animal shelter or humane society. If you have a dog or cat, please get them spayed or neutered, don't add to the problem.
