I just could not stop at two puppies. I had a couple more ideas to try. My first idea was to make a husky with blue eyes. Well, it turned out looking more like a Border Collie or an Australian Shepherd. Oh well.
I tried again with some cream and gray Grunge fabrics. In my mind, the block was awesome, but my placement of fabrics was just wrong, and block was so hideous that I'm not even going to show you. Puppy fail. Funny how that happens.
I also wanted to try a brown dog--I don't know what they're called, but I know I've seen them--with blue eyes and a pinkish nose. That one turned out more like what I was imagining.
I wonder, though: do these puppies look a little vacant? A little zombie-ish? Maybe I should have used a slightly darker blue for the eyes. I love them anyway, and I'm sure someone somewhere will love them, too. I probably should have named them, but then they'd be harder to part with. Wait, I'll name one. The Border Collie is Fly, of course, from the movie Babe. Love that movie! You can name the others if you want.
I have other ideas, but I think I need to stop
I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday. Have fun with your puppies--whether furry or fabric. And thank you, Karen and Lorna, for making this project possible!
Okay, since this has been a tiny post, how about a
|A peek through a window of the farmhouse--layers of wall paper and linoleum printed to look like carpet.|
|Rest stop tree|
|Do you see the beaver cuts? Two trees about to be toppled and one pointy stump where one has already been felled (way on the left)|
|Log school house from the 1800's (right across the trail from the beaver work)|
|A peek through the window. This is one of my favorite pictures from the ride. I love the dusty light.|
|I wonder if this could be a Native American trail marker tree.|
|The brightest spot of color we saw on the trail.|
Okay that's it for this post. Bye bye.
