Our Whole Life

For the person who has everything!

For the person who has everything, perhaps this is just the thing. If they have pets they love or if they are a grandparent they may love to receive one of these in a quilt or on a garment.

I digitized the dog design for my niece, Beth. She loves dogs and all animals really. OWL_300_DogQuiltwoButtons_600

During the development of the ‘Petals’ collections, I kept aside some of my mother's buttons for her. With this dog design I added the flowers with centers just begging for something 3 dimensional to nest inside the fringe.

Ability to customize your message is built in

To aid you in customizing your message, I added a color stop for the words ‘Cats’ and ‘Dogs’. This should make it easier for you to use your software to remove those words and substitute them for Birds, Fish, etc.

Sew these designs onto woven fabrics.

Mariner's Compass Collection



While working on the dogs and cats design, the grandchildren alternate message came to me. I like it. So I included it with this collection.
