String Flimsy and Molly

Pretty flimsy....beautiful dog!
Like many other quilters I made a point of spending some good quality end-of-year time in my sewing room. We quilters know where the best New Year's Eve party is!

The zig-zag string blocks that I had been working on over the past few months (I started them in September) were close to my machine and they were so close to becoming a flimsy. I decided they were perfect to work on and I finished joining them together into a flimsy.

I love this flimsy - it is very striking in person - and I can't wait to quilt it!

I didn't get a picture of the full flimsy because my sweet Molly decided she wanted to be a poster girl and she can do whatever she wants!

On the night of December 23 Molly had a seizure and we rushed her to the emergency vet clinic and it scared the heck out of me. She was already being treated for minor heart failure but her heart condition has progressed significantly and another medication was added to her routine. She is not suffering and she still has good quality of life but the vet's prognosis is not good.

Oh, my goodness, poor Molly! She certainly can do what she wants! Bless her heart. My daughter's dog had to have half her mandible removed (cancerous and aggressive tumor) and it's amazing how everyone's attitude toward her has softened! Blessing in disguise? Happy New Year! I know you'll make it Molly's best!

It's always sweet to see a fur-baby on a quilt. She is so cute. Hope she pulls through for another year or two. Sending you good vibes. ;^)

Oh! The quilt looks great. Those blocks aren't square or is it my eyes or monitor playing tricks here? ;^)

Dear sweet Molly looks to be saying, "It's done, Mama. Now, snuggle with ME, please!!"

Poor Molly. She looks like she is happy on your new quilt despite her troubles. So glad that you were able to find some quality sewing time. The strings are lovely. Enjoy getting them quilted up.
