A Great Quilt and Bruce

This is another great quilt I saw in that quilt show in 2000. I really like quilts, made from the makers imagination. I don't follow patterns well so my best work has come from my imagination. When I started sewing in my teens, it was without patterns. I have used patterns but most of my sewing and quilting has been from my creativity. I think the best quilts come
from creativity.

Bruce when he was 7 months old. Bruce loved balls and he loved sticks. It turned out, good that he loved balls because I had little time to walk him. We (Bruce and I) went to work 7:30am and came home at 8;30pm. So when we had a pepe break, we would play ball. We would do that about every 2 and a half - 3 hours. That was the way he got his exercise. Bruce went to work with me 6 days a week. My first marriage broke up while I had Bruce. When we left the station I knew my then husband could not run it alone. In less then 6 months he went belly up.
Thank-you for coming to share my life. Thank-you for your friendship!!
I will be back blogging Monday.
Love you all, Fern


  1. Good Morning Fern,

    Bruce was so lucky to have you. And I think you were lucky to have him too!!

    That Pinocchio quilt it fabulous. You are right - the best quilts come from the imagination. Although I do like traditional patterns - I think Double Irish Chain is my very favorite.

    Have a fun weekend.

  2. Hi Fern,
    I love the quilt. It looks as if it will come to life any minute. Bruce is a beautiful German. I bet he was a excellent companion.
    Have a very good weekend. We'er expecting lots of rain,
    Madi and Mom

  3. How I love GSD's...they have a special place in my heart. I had a solid white one for twelve years.

    Bruce was gorgeous. I know he was a good friend to you!

  4. What a cute Pinocchio quilt! Mom did Pinocchio and Geppetto on the Airedale quilt that was just raffled off this past weekend and no, mom didn't win it! Bummer!
    Bruce was a very lucky dog to be able to go to work with you!

  5. Happy Monday Fern,
    Madi and I wish you a great week,
