It was a beautiful sunny day when I finished - I sat out on the patio with an audiobook in the MP3 player and zipped right along. I love the Mezzanine backing. This quilt is long and narrow, and perfect for using on the backseat to protect the upholstery. I think it will also work nicely on my bed where she lays, to protect my own bedding from her dirty tummy.
And speaking of dirty tummies, this is what I saw after my little photo shoot. She rarely digs in the yard, but on occasion she likes to dig a bit in a flower bed. On this day, she was burying a rawhide with her nose. Her nose and paws are usually white or cream - not dirt colored! Isn't she a cutie? I didn't yell at all, so please don't think she's been scolded. She is the best dog, even when she's a bit naughty.
I think she's thinking that if she doesn't look at me directly, somehow I won't notice!
