Summer is here!
Well, the hot weather has returned and Critter Comforts is still going strong! Things here in Michigan are beginning to turn around but there are still a large number of homeless dog and cats that need families.
Recent events at many rescues have broken records in attendance and funds raised. Even in these hard times, people are opening up their wallets and their hearts to help these wonderful creatures that give us so much.
Thanks for all your help!!!! I certainly couldn't provide these blankets without the generousity of caring people! Any supplies, fabric, thread, batting and etc., no matter how small, help to make over 1000 blankets each and every year. Thank you!!!
Well, gotta go, there's more blankets to be done.
Thanks for your support!!!!!!
Critter Comforts: Quilts for Homeless Animals
Thanks to Susan Gavorin for my beautiful card design.
Isn't she just adorable, napping on her quilt from Critter Comforts. She is one of many of the spring puppies available for adoption from the Bellowood Rescue.
What it's all about!
Nicole from Silver Lake Rescue sent this to me and I thought I'd pass it on to all of you.
When calling to check on a previous adopter they said..."you know that blanket you sent with Zach? Please never stop doing that"! They said that when he wants a nap he will go get his blanket, carry it to his favorite spot, make a little "nest" in it and go to sleep.
Here's another wonderful dog waiting for a home to call his own. He's ready to go blankie and all. He and many more great dogs are available at Resq4Paws.
Peke A Tzu
Devas checks out the new quilt made especially for the wonderful dogs at Peke A Tzu rescue. For more information on the great dogs available, go to www.pekeatzurescue.com
Quilting for the Animals
When fabric arrives from a kind and generous person, it is divided by color and then by size. I use three size categories: 1) backing size, 2) medium size to cut squares of 4", 6" or 8", 3) small scraps for crazy quilting.
Using this system allows me to utilize every possible piece of fabric.
If you would like to help, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am always accepting unwanted washable fabric including cottons, knits, denim, polyester, fleece, flannel and etc.
Also any color of thread and UPCs(barcodes) from Hobbs brand battings.
Thank you for your support!
