HOW TO QUILT WITH A PUPPY IN THE HOUSE!

OMG!! This puppy can howl! I didn’t know such a tiny little thing could reach such an extreme volume! The neighbors probably think she is dying!

Let me explain. I have my sewing machine in the kitchen on the table. It provides a large enough space for quilting.

I also have a baby gate separating the kitchen from the living room…to keep the puppy out of the kitchen and ultimately out of the cats’ food bowl, which she, BTW, is more fond of than her own food. It also provides a sanctuary for the cats when they want to get away from the “let’s chase the cats and have fun” attitude of the puppy. Can you believe a 15 pound cat is terrified of a 4 pound puppy?

So what happens when I go in the kitchen to sew or quilt and shut the gate behind me, leaving the puppy looking in? The HOWLING begins! OMG! It is deafening!

I have learned that I have to be patient and wait until the little bugger is sleeping. Then I can sew. The noise doesn’t wake her, thank goodness.

Right now she is at my feet, jumping up, trying to get me to pick her up. I read somewhere that Westies are not lap dogs. Someone forgot to tell her that.

  1. Too cute…but at least she isn’t sitting on top of your fabric, batting at the thread, grabbing pins and needles, hissing at the iron. 🙂

    Give her belly a raspberry for me.

  2. Thanks. She has definitely stolen our hearts. I cannot imagine having a 60 pound pup in my lap :-).

  3. He thinks he’s a small dog like I had for [15] years. Sugar Man, my little dog ,that weighed only 6 pounds. Prince Albert [a pomeranium], weighs 12 pounds~~big difference when it comes to him jumping upon your lap. I love him dearley, but he is by no way, a lap dog.
