Stuffies are too manly!!
Without much to do during this lock down, I am expecting a baby boom late this year and early next. If it happens that you will be welcoming a new life to your family or circle of friends, consider giving him or her a beautiful handmade quilt.
This ASL/American Sign Language Quilt is crib sized (41.5″ x 47.25″) and is an original design of mine. The quilt is made using hand applique, hand embroidery and hand quilting techniques, so it is quite time consuming to make. The shell is entirely cotton with a cotton/bamboo batting.
If you can help my quilt find a happy home, I would be most appreciative. (The cost is $725 with shipping determined by ZIP code. You can contact me here or through my website L Bowman Studios ).
TOBY…STUFFIES ARE MANLY. THEY SHOW THE WORLD YOU ARE A COMPASSIONATE AND CARING SOUL !LADIES LOVE THAT !!
Aw, what a beautiful way of looking at things!
It’s OK, Toby. You hang on to those stuffies for as long as you want. You’re never too old to have a favorite stuffie. Tell your DogMom that’s a mighty fine quilt, something to be very proud about.
Thank you, Maxwell! – Toby
Yes, Toby is right! Stuffies are manly! A real man has lots of stuff(ies)! 😉 😛
Cooper does! Toby and Coop are sweet sweet men!
PS…The quilt is fabulous! Love the design! I’ve made a few machine quilts and a couple of handmade quilts so I know the great effort, creativity, and love you put into it! ❤
Yay, Coop! We’re real men! I have a ton of stuffies…and tennis balls.
Mom says thanks for the kind words anout the quilt! If you know anyone who might be interested in it, please feel free to share this link. Mom is trying to keep me in stuffues and buscuits!
Maverick says stuffies are to be disemboweled as quickly as possible. Maverick’s Mommah says that’s a gorgeous quilt and wonders if you would like to do the binding on her current project?
Ha ha! My brother Geordie had the same philosophy as you. He never had a stuffie more than 30 seconds without it being de-squeakered, I only rip mine apart sometimes.
Mom says: Sure, if you need help, I can help! You probably already have my email address from WP replies. If not, it is on my website too.
I watched youtube videos last night from Missouri Star and I’m going to do a trial run tomorrow. I’ve done a ton of bindings, but I just always think I’m gonna screw up!
I think all quilters feel that way. After all that work, you would hate to screw up on the last step. Happy sewing!
I don’t think that was in your face. That was on your pole.
Geordie says, “At least it wasn’t on my face”.
Dear Toby – that brings back the happy memory of the first time I lifted my leg to mark something – that manly feeling!
Did you wait a long time like I did? Mom was starting to wonder about me.
