Quilted Pip

Have you sent in your treasure for the quilt for Sandra?  Dachsies With Moxie is making an amazing quilt for Sandra and her family and we are all invited to send in something special. You can read more about it here.


My plan was to send in part of my old couch, but the peeps said no. So, I had to settle for one of my favorite blankies. 


This blanket serves many purposes - comfort, warmth, trickery - I got a couple of cheeseburgers hidden under here, but don't tell.


What do you mean, where am I going? I got a little something to take care of ...chomp, chomp, bletch ...

 Post cheeseburger smile ...life is sweet! 
Thanks for all the wonderful holiday cards! We didn't participate in the holiday card exchange this year (cause my mom didn't get her act together), but it sure was nice of everyone to send us cards anyway! Yes, that's Rosie's tail!

sprinkles said...

Are ya gonna send one of your cheeseburgers too, Pip? bol

That's a really nice blanket. It'll look super duper in Sandra's quilt! I'm still thinking on what I could send in. The only idea I can come up with is sending in part of one of my bedsheets since my boys and I sleep together.

Madi and Mom said...

PIP,
MOL MOL MOL oh we are late to the party. My assistant and her better half go to Panera every Friday for breakfast, then they walked then they had to go buy my assistant new walking shoes...yada yada yada. Excuses!!

Tell Rosie she has a lovely tail...and my Mom said to tell your MOM she loves thate piece of furniture where you displayed your cards...is it an antique?
