How Dachshunds Sleep

Dachshunds love to burrow, and they hate to have light in their eyes while they are sleeping (I feel the same way). The other night, as I was working on a project, I looked over at the couch and had to get my camera. Poki's rear was all I could see! I snapped the picture (above).

Then, the next time I looked, her rear was gone and her stomach (and one paw) was all I could see (middle). Don't ask me how they breathe under there!!
The top picture shows the entire Poki. She doesn't spend ALL her time out of sight!

Angel Block for the Quilt Teaparty

Not much to say about this block; I did the buttonhole stitching by hand. I have a sewing machine that can do that, but I didn't have the heavier thread it would have required. I do needle turn applique (no adhesives), but sometimes when I turn the edges under, I baste them in place, if the fabric doesn't want to obey.

Anna Has a Sister: Introducing Beatrix

Here is the second Hitty doll I've carved--well MOST of her. I'm almost done with her arms, but have had some other projects that demanded my time lately. So the arms have taken a backseat, temporarily.
I have dresses done for both Anna and Beatrix; just need to hem them and put on snaps/buttons.
