Complimentary Dog Hair with Pattern

If you receive a complimentary dog hair in one of your quilt patterns, you can thank one of these three. Holly, Kiley, and Glady all come to "work" at Amy Bradley Designs. Yes, two people, one baby, and three dogs in a metal barn, is starting to resemble a funny farm. The other day the baby was crying, the dogs were barking, the TV was blaring and I was laughing. My husband says that I have the personality to work like this but he does not. I choose this environment and I feel so blessed to be doing what I love with family and pets that I love. I wake up in the morning pinching myself to make sure this is all real.

How do I get dogs at full attention? Lots and lots of their favorite treats!

Do I look like the Quilt Diva?

I sometimes have my customers ask me if I resemble any of my characters. There might be some resemblance but I mostly take traits from other quilters I know or see. People-watching is a hobby of mine. Airports, grocery stores, burger joints and I am rubber necking trying to get a good look. Thank goodness the world is full of characters like me going through our day to day motions. It makes for wonderful drawing subjects. I see women walking through the airport with spike heels and I think they are nuts! A good pair of sneakers or clogs would make them much more comfortable...not a fashionista but definitely more comfy. High heels went out with my twenties along with my true hair color.
