Happy Valentine's Day AND WHN's entry in the Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop

Muffin and Snoopy arriving at the Blogville Valentine's Day Ball

Table runner/mat
 Madame Samm and Jane from Jane's Fabrics and Quilts have done it again!  Today is the penultimate day of the Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop celebrating Valentine's Day!  The only requirement was that the pawticipants used red and pink fabrics in their creations, and this is what we had WHN make!  First up is the table mat/runner using strips leftover from a prayer shawl WHN made last year for a Blogville resident who is no longer with us- we found the remaining strips tucked away in her UFO / scrap bin and put her to work!  She backed it with a nice mauvish pink leftover from a quilt made over twenty years ago!  (WHN saves everything it seems!)  

Next up are the Snoopy inspired placemats and cocktail napkins that we forced her to make for our girlfriends and boyfriends in BLogville!  Snoopy is gifting Miss Muffin a red dog bone placemat and her sister Lily Belle a pink dogbone placemat, while Tasha is gifting her Beagle beau Shiloh with a red placemat and his sister, Miss Shasta a pink one! (we hope they don't mind the photos being posted early- their packages are due to arrive in the mail sometime today!).  The cocktail napkins were made at Jackmans' during the free monthly Serger sewing class- this is only the second serger class WHN has attended and she is slowly getting over her fear of sergers!  Maybe one is in her future?

  Tasha and Shiloh are also celebrating their furst anniversary as a couple!  Just last year, Shiloh had the courage to take both Tasha and her sister, Angel Ginger to last year's BLogville extravaganza! 

 The bone shaped placemats are inspired by the Christmas gift that Jazzi and Addy  gave the DWM in the 2012 Blogville gift exchange- WHN loves them and has yet to post the photos of these gifts but promises to do so tomorrow! 

As you can see, WHN loves dachshunds and was able to score a dachshund candy dish from us at Target and Dad got the coffee mug from us- 

Now the rest of the ladies participating in today's extravaganza of quilting goodness are listed below- please visit them and leave a comment- there is a giveaway going on and commenters are included- just ask Newby's mom over at Simpatico Dreams - she won last year for commenting! It takes a lot of courage to show off your quilting/crafting skills on the internet!

Very nice work! It is always satisfying to use up left over fabric too. I'm sure the pups will all love their gifts too.

Pierro here:
You doggies are so lucky, you got hand crafted fancy things from your mom. Miles and I got store bought plastic trays with hearts on them - to place our bowls of meatglop and water....

Rosemary B here: Adorable table runner and the place mats and napkins are perfect. As always Agnes, you create with flair, I know it is the puppies that inspire you ♥♥
Have fun at the dance pupdogs!

Pierro said...

Rosemary B here:
Oh, I forgot to say... I know how it is to use up fabric that you made something special for a dear friend that is no longer with us. It tugs your heart and makes it hurt a little too.
They are safe now, and we still miss them

Kathy @ Kwilty Pleasures said...

Lovable Lily said...

Just wanted to call and check in with you. Snoopy is being such a wonderful date! He even opened up the door for me. We've been dancing up a storm. We think someone spiked the punch! Puddles is no where to be found, so that kind of is suspicious.

I just love MY Snoopy man!

Talk to you later I gotta run. Snoopy wants to slow dance right now and that's an offer a pup can't refuse.

I only knew of crocheted and knitted prayer shawls, that is really cool that you recovered fabric from a sewn one to make that pretty striped placemat.
