Nero's Post II (2013-2015)

{Dog Gone Cute} Blog Hop Starts!


Vof vof friends! It’s me, Nero and I have great news! ‘Dog Gone Cute’ blog hop has began! First puppies are out from the kennel! When I saw Lorna’s new pattern with puppies, I said to Teje that this is for me and since then I’m thinking all the time my puppies!

This is Cecil who lives in the city. She ‘moved’ and now there is blue, wooden fence around her house.

First Cecil’s neighbourhood looked very busy. Hanna is very careful with colours and she didn’t like the strong purple with Cecil’s brown-pink face. I have to admit she’s right. Cecil looks much better with the calm surrounding.

I’m happy to have still lot of time to play with my puppies. Plan is made and now we just continue with Teje. She went for fabric shopping to her home country and I have been waiting for her to come back so we can continue my project. With Hanna we have picked fabrics ready for new puppies. I’m not sure yet how many friends there will be.

My other good friend is Bruno! I love his white spotted grey face!

You can find instructions for the blocks and quilts in Lorna’s blog ‘Sew Fresh Quilts’ and start to make {Dog Gone Cute} puppies. Take my word: if you start, you are going to have lots of puppies around your house!

At the end of the blog hop, there will be a linky party. Looks like Lorna’s fantastic sponsors really love puppies because the prizes are amazing!

Sew Fresh Quilts
I have to go to see what my puppies are doing, they might have messed up with my scraps!
One last important thing before I leave you. I saw today the MUST fabric bundle! Look what I saw today!
There is even my yellow ball! See all the bundle in ‘Hawthorne Threads’ and I already began to write the letter to Santa Claus …

Furry Hugs and Kisses!

  1. Love your block! That dog fabric is adorable!!! I saw they have a black and tan set room that has kind of animal prints that is cool.

  2. Great blocks! Love what you’ve done with the background fabric! So much fun!!

  3. Oh, you are so right to think that writing to Santa Claus to request that dog fabric is a great idea, Nero has been such a good dog all year. And Hanna is such a sweet dog too. But even if Santa only brings them each a bone for Christmas, they still have made such very cute puppies and will be happy with what they have already been blessed with.

    • Thank you Lorna for your sweet words! We all have jumped into patches and scraps here! New puppies appear and the project runs. x Nero, Hanna, Teje

  4. I agree with Hanna, the wooden fence is better. I´m sure that you will have this wonderful fabric with your yellow ball becouse Teje knows the Santa Claus very well since childhood. Have a nice week!

  5. I love the background fabric. Great block!

  6. This quilt is going to be epic! I can’t wait to see your finish.

  7. Lorna makes such great designs, and your dog looks great. I think it is a fabulous idea to put him into the city – it gives him a story. The blue fence does look much better than the original.

  8. Cute post Teje. Have fun making your doggies : )

  9. Love your block…cute puppy and lovely fabric choices! Happy weekend to you all!

  10. What a cute block Teje and I hope Nero gets the new fabric from Santa!!

I would love to hear from you! If you have a moment, please leave a message!
