Welcome to my blog! Today, “It’s All About Me!” This is my first blog hop EVER 🙂 I was so excited when I read that Madame Samm was offering a blog hop in conjunction with one of my favorite designers, Amy Bradley. I love Amy’s designs…the directions are super clear. One of the best things about Amy is her love of animals and her animal patterns. Her husband is a veterinarian, just like me! So, a huge thank you is in order for Madame Samm and Marlene, our head cheerleader, for coordinating all the bloggers! An even bigger thank you to Amy Bradley for providing the bloggers with the pattern and allowing us to create our own likeness. I had a great time and I hope you enjoy my version of “ME”.
Here I am 🙂 So, a little about me. I’m a veterinary dermatologist…yep, there really are such things! I spend my days working with animals with various forms of skin disease. I manage a lot of allergies, but also work with auto-immune diseases, ear diseases, and parasitic disorder. You can click here to see pictures of my patients. I am very blessed in being able to do what I do. I love my job, I love my patients, but some days…well, let’s just say I love this too, lol. Quilting is my therapy.This was a fantastic little project and worked up quickly. It gave me a chance to try out a Frixion pen for marking quilting lines. You’ve heard of these I’m sure. You press the areas you’ve marked with a hot iron and “poof”, the marks disappear. There are stories of the lines returning when the temperature drops below a certain temperature, but this little wall hanging is just for me and I have no intention of putting her in the freezer 🙂
I love my patients, but as you can see from my blog, I have a house full of fur children as well. We have 4 cats, 3 dogs, and 2 horses! My poor husband sometimes feels surrounded by cats, but I adore them. See this cute little one peeking over my head?I quilted the little wall hanging with straight line quilting at an angle in order to simulate “bias”. So fun! And the Frixion pen really did vanish when ironed with a warm iron. Can you see the little DVM name tag I made?So there you have it! I hope you like it. Now, don’t forget to go and visit all of our other bloggers today (listed below) for Day 3 of the blog hop. Thanks for stopping by!
