I wonder why today was the day I created this quilt?
I created this story quilt to honor a very special dog, Onna. She died several years ago and I have always wanted to gift to Becky and Arden a piece that would CELEBRATE! her life and today was the day. I awoke and knew exactly how I wanted to create it and yet the piece has been stewing for weeks since I found a children's book that depicted a black dog chasing a squirrel. Whenever Arden would speak of Onna, it was usually in the context of a story of chasing a squirrel. In the beginning my goal was to creat a squirrel but then I decided to use a stash fabric with squirrels scattered willy-nilly knowing that Onna would love the abundance of options instead of a single squirrel. I imagine that she is still chasing squirrels in heaven and I cannot wait to quilt her tomorrow and send her in the mail.

So it is with this couple and my life!
I am the clinician, the woman, a mom largely because of one man.....Dr. Weintraub.

PS...Do you notice the feminine shape of the tree....Not on purpose but I am thinking it may become a habit!
