Report From the Studio

Hi everypup and everycat.  It's me, Dave, Guide Dog for the Color Blind (GDFTCB).  I'm coming at you from the Studio today.  I've been busy helping my mom with all kinds of stuff lately.  THEN, even though we're in the middle of some quilts, Mom said she wanted to stop and do something special for someone and that she needed my help!  This person's colors are in an area she can't distinguish very well, so this is my chance to shine! I jumped at the opportunity to lend my GDFTCB services!

"Let's get to it, Mom!"

She told me who it was for and opened the doors to Mom's House of Fabrics our closet; I got my snooter busy picking things for her. I like who this is going to a LOT, so I wanted to choose extra special careful!  Mom did that "SQUEEEE" thing when I was done, so I think that means she's happy with my choices. Here's what I've got:

She let me hold them for a while, then wanted to get right to work cutting and sewing and stuff.

I can't tell you any more about this - not until it's done and in the hands of our friend!  It's a big secret and she might see the blog - so I can't write any more about it.  YET!

While Mom gets to it ...

  8. I'm surprised you guys are so able to keep secrets over there at the HQ. Must huskies are BIG talkers ;)

  9. You did a great job picking out beautiful fabrics Dave! There's no way your mom could have picked those out all by herself! Your friend is going to love them!

  10. Dave, you have a great nose for colors and fabrics! We can't wait to see the finished quilt either! In the mean time, if you need any help on your research, let us know: we're good at that sort of thing ;-/
