GDFTCB - Other Duties

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave.  Some of you might be wondering about some of my other duties as my mom's Guide Dog for the Color Blind. It's not all about the color and trust me ...

...sometimes it's hard, hard work!

Right now, Mom and I are focusing on that scrap quilt I showed you the other day.  I normally am not too keen on scrap quilts - but we settled on choosing only fabrics in the "warm, fuzzy (I especially like the fuzzy part), muted" arena.  That was enough of a color scheme to please me and to let me relax.

Perhaps I relaxed too much, because the other day I came into the Studio to check Mom's progress and ...

Me, hanging my head in disbelief in front of Mom's design wall

I couldn't believe the fabric she had slipped in there!

"Not in my quilt!  Not on my watch!"

I got right to work, taking the offending (and I DO mean "offending") block out!

"This one right here!  It must GO!"

Sorry the pix are so blurry:
A) I was working really fast!
B) Mom was in disbelief as to what I was doing!

I've never had to remove a block before, but this was just ... just too MUCH!!!

"Sorry to have to do this, Mom!"

That's so much better.  Can you see the block I took out?  When you see it, you'll understand why I had to do what I had to do.  Here - I did a special close up for you that should explain it all:

Oh, sure, the colors fit! ... but CAT fabric?!? Unless maybe this is for Zim or another cat-lover ...

I better keep a closer eye on my mom.  A Guide Dog for the Color Blind's work is never done!

Luv,
Dave, GDFTCB

  3. OMD Dave I can't believe your Mom did that to you! I hope there aren't other cats hiding further up on the design wall where you can't reach. You better get a ladder or chair to get up on and check the fabrics near the top.

    What would your Mom do without you to review her work. It's good you caught it before she pieced all the blocks together.

    Good work, Dave!

  19. That was a close one Dave! Your mom must be cat blind in addition to color blind but thankfully you spotted it in time! Phew!

    Woos,

    PeeS: Does the heart quilt on the side have you, Zim and your angel sisters on it?

  20. Oh, Dave, you are a dog after Abby's own heart! A stickler for doing your duty AND very sound on the subject of cats.

  22. Whew! What a relief you were there. Apparently you are also a Guide Dog for the Cat Blind as well. Disaster averted!

    Kat (I know you would not take out a fabric with a Kat on it.)
