Nap Pads for Pups

 

Yesterday I dusted off an old pattern and whipped up a new nap pad for the boys.  I used to make tons of these to sell when I had the gift shop.  It’s so much more fun having these colorful, beautiful fabrics instead of the same old plain dog beds.  Anyone interested in a class or purchasing a pretty new, washable nap pad?

Have you got tons of t-shirts that you love but never wear any more?  If you are like me, you do!  You picked them up on vacation….or they have a theme you love…and you had to have it but you just can’t wear them all.  Time to repurpose those shirts into something you will use….a nice blanket or throw.  Our first T-shirt Rag Quilt workshop is coming up on March 30-31.  Click here for more information….Saturday we will cut and Sunday we will sew. There is one seat left in this session but you have time to gather up those shirts for the next one on Saturday, April 6th.  Click here for that info.  These are fun to make and you will enjoy having the memories where you can enjoy them more.

As promised a few days ago when we introduced the new Calico Cat Rag Quilt , here is the new “Dogs and Heart: Rag Quilt.  We love this one.  It’s a little harder to make than others we have been making but it’s worth the time and effort. And Jed wanted everyone to know that he was the inspiration for this design.   Scheduling a class now and will post the date soon.

Cat with Heart Rag QuiltI can just imagine a little girl all snuggled up with this Calico Cat Rag Quilt.  It’s a new design and we will be making it soon at The Studio.  Of course, since I love dogs so much I am working on a new dog design too!  That will be here soon.  In the meantime this one is for all my kitty loving friends to enjoy.  (As usual, the sample is available for sale…..this one measures 40″ x 52″ and is $89. Contact kwalker@thestudioforlearning.com if you would like it.)

It’s rare that I get a day off when there is a great class being offered nearby that I can take.  It happened yesterday!  I went to The Mud Peddler Studio in Shepherdstown, WV and painted with my friend, Denise Kupiszewski.  She is an excellent teacher and helps you create beautiful pieces.  The event was so much fun that I can’t wait to try again.  We decorated two bowls, one we keep and the other is going to a fundraiser for a charity.  Nice, huh?  Everyone did something totally different and they were all fabulous.  Thanks Denise.  Let’s do it again soon…and maybe this time in Front Royal!

Always my favorite paint party each month-PETS!  I love seeing what people paint and how excited they are when they turn out so good.  And I love that some of you are coming back to paint gifts for friends.  I know they will LOVE them.  And we even have a few more paintings that are still in the works and will be finished on Friday so I will share them then.  Nice work everyone!!!
