I'm a huge dog lover. I have three cocker spaniels of my home and I also have a foster dog that will stay with us until she finds a forever home.
So when the earthquake hit Japan, I wanted to do something for the animals affected by the devastation. I've made several novelty pillowcases that I'm selling to raise money for World Vets, an organization that is helping to rescue companion animals displaced during Japan's earthquake and keep them in no-kill shelters until they can be reunited with their owners.
I'm donating 50 percent of the pillowcase purchase price to World Vets relief efforts in Japan. Click here to see the selection.
Or if you'd like to donate directly to World Vets, click here.

If you're wondering why I'm talking about gnomes and dogs on a quilting blog, I'll explain.
I have a friend who love gnomes. She has a cute little set in her house. So when I found Michael Miller's Gnoming Around fabric collection I had to let her know about it. Soon a plan was hatched to make gnome pillowcases. And this is the result.
I've also been hard at work on a quilt that I'm donating to K9 Kindness Rescue, Inc., to raise money to help homeless dogs. I got the top done at a quilt retreat I went on last weekend and started to quilt it. I've included a sneak peak in the photo at the top of the blog.
