Furry Fridays

Image may contain: cat and text

Hi, and welcome to Furry Fridays!  I want to introduce you to two special animals who are looking for their Furever home.  First up is the pretty Carlee, a 3 year old female.  Aren't her colors and markings pretty?  You can go to Petfinder to find out more about her, and adopt her in Freeport, Florida.

Bristol, our puppy, has the sweetest face!  You can find out more about her Here.  She's in Waldorf, Maryland. She reminds me of my first dog, Taylor.  Shepherd mixes are wonderful.

If these two aren't near you, or were not what you were looking for, please consider adopting one from your local shelter. Use Petfinder's search for one in your area.  

Island Batik Ambassadors were asked to make kennel quilts in February.  Here's a photo of my rescue dog, Hazel, checking out the ones I made.  

Hazel was adopted as a puppy 8 years ago, from North Shore Animal League, and was a rescue. She's a sweetheart, who loves to play, and makes me laugh every day.  I got my first dog from North Shore Animal League, too.  Taylor was awesome, too.  I will only adopt pets.  I do plan to make more kennel quilts, and donate them to NSAL. 

If you haven't heard about kennel quilts, please go to The Quilt Pattern Magazine and join the Small Kennel Quilt Team.  Quilts are fast, easy to make, and a great use for scraps. The measure 12 by 18", and are not bound.  Just layer the backing, batting and top, stitch around the side leaving an opening to turn, and then stitch closed.  It's a great place to practice some quilting motifs, also.  You can donate them to the shelter that's requested them, or to your own shelter.  

A great group of companies are sponsoring this endeavor to get more pets adopted, and to make more kennel quilts.  Aurifil, Island BatikQuiltyBox, The Quilt Pattern Magazine, Benartex, and today's sponsor is Hancocks-Paducah.  You'll find fabric, thread kits, and more, all to benefit this cause.  

Please consider adopting a pet.  Unconditional love, friendship, and laughter will be part of the package.  

Thanks for reading.
