I have unintenionally ignored my poor blog. I used to keep up with it, and now it seems to hide in the corner. Everyone knows I love to sew, my blog is littered with results of just that. The last 4 months or so I have been sewing smaller quilts for dogs and cats and to be used in the No Kill Shelters and the Rescues. Earlier this year, I had dropped off around 100 quilts to the Humane Society in my district only to find they were being warehoused until "needed". It was then I switched to Rescues and No Kill Shelters. I have met some wonderful folks who devote their lives to care for cats and dogs, to make them well, give them love and try to adopt each one out to a loving family. In the past month I was given several large bags of donated fabrics and it was those fabrics that allowed me to whip up 106 quilts for several of the Rescues. Here is a stack, different sizes for different size dogs. Some went to the vet of a Rescue (Forever Loving Hearts Rescue in Surprise, AZ).I had a little black and white cat visitor who wandered to my yard most likely from The Sahuaro Ranch, a literal dumping ground for unwanted cats, bunnies. Her ear was tipped, the sign that she was at The Park and she was "fixed". She was a loving kitty, so hardly feral, and probably dumped by a family that just didn't want her anymore. Or, of course, she could have gotten lost and wandered to The Park. Forever Loving Hearts Rescue now has Tux to find a forever family for her.
