Sam is in the Doghouse

My name is Samson J Collins and I did a Very Bad Thing.

Do you remember the beautiful twisted tea time quilt that my friend Gully’s mom Dee made for my mom a couple of years ago?

Well, I was snoozing in the sun the other day when I heard an awful sound! It came from my mom! It sounded like Arrrgghhh!! and then I heard her say, “Oh, Sam, what have you done?” I jumped right up and ran to investigate.

010Oh. That.

Um…well… obviously I must have had something to do with that little incident. I wish I could remember! Maybe I was left unsupervised during a thunder storm? That quilt helped me get through a rough time!”

008I am very sorry.

007I know! I’ll make amends by helping my mom out in the sewing room!

Yesterday I held down the quilt sandwich so Mom could baste it.

005Just when I thought I was done, my Mom laid out a second, larger top to baste that very same day! I had to recruit Misty to help. This was too much quilt for one little dog to hold down all by myself!

013And then I supervised that darned Spooky for the rest of the day.

018I even swallowed my pride and held this little table runner up so Mom could take a picture.

004Even though it was beneath my dignity. Making amends can be so…embarrassing!

003Do you forgive me, Mom?

  3. Oh Sam! LOL!!! I have a dog that nibbles of fabric….kinda annoying. But of course, we always forgive them!

    I’m sure the over-loved quilt can wear a little patch quite dashingly! Love the colours on the table runner, and that crazy, wonky-squared thing is awesomely dizzying to look at. 🙂
