Pets on Quilts

Have you checked out the wonderful Pets on Quilts Parade?  This is such a fun show as people show off their pets, pet quilts and all else.  Be sure to pop over and visit Snoodles and all of the fun links.  You will not be disappointed. 

My entry is in the "other pets" category.  The only pets we currently have are our wonderful tortoises.  They are really more like "half" pets since they sleep all winter.  ;-}

Please meet Joshua and Sagura on my Civil War mini quilt.

  5. Mary, your family pictures are always a joy to look at....I know you enjoy them so much. The granny square quilt is so pretty....has a little "water color" look to it...And now the tortoises have given us another look at your fabulous Civil War Mini. I'll be sure to go and vote for you on August 9!

  28. Hi! Your quilt is beautiful and wow, turtles, that's exiting! We have special protected turtles "Careta Careta' here in Crete. Your shadow dog is also so beautiful! I think he was worried that perhaps you leave, too.

  31. I love your turtles on the quilt. Do they live in an aquarium? Your family vacation looks wonderful. I am encouraged to read about your long marriage. My daughter married young-she just turned 18 and has been married 4 years.

  32. The "other pets" category is really the best. Cats and dogs are fabulous but tortoises? Yeah, they're special.

    (the quilt is great too, but the tortoises really stole the show for me)

  33. Oh, these are just so cute on the civil war quilt! The colors match very well.

    P.s I´m also struggling with the JT2 blocks..I´m very much behind :)

  39. At least they wouldn't run off the quilt. Love this photo, thanks for sharing.

  40. Whata fun couple of pets! My husband asked if I wanted to put our 30 gallon fish tank on a quilt or I could "put it on the top of the tank and just flip the picture over..."lol.

    ReplyDelete
  41. How sweet they are! I love that they "posed" on the quilt - a very original entry!

    ReplyDelete
