LilyPad Quilting also helps support the Padsworth Project. The Padsworth Project makes beds and blankies for rescue shelters. Go here to find sewing instructions for making pet kennel beds and blankies. You see the wire and plastic kennels get so hard after a while so the beds and blankies help kept them comfortable while they are waiting on a forever home. Plus cute little blankies actually make the pets look more snuggly and appealing when prospective owners come to visit. I hope to make a few in the next day or so but I won't get them made in time to have extra entries tonight. But thats alright, my sweet little rescues
that I blogged about here have all found homes except for the mama and 1 kitten. The mama and the last kitten are gone to the local Humane Society. They are fixin to have an adoption day at our local Tractor Supply and PetSmart in the next town over. Angie at the Humane Society said she thought they would not have any problems getting them adopted plus they were going to have the mama spayed! I am so happy that I was able to find homes for all of the others. It was really hard to give up that last kitten though. I had gotten pretty attached. But I have two kitties at the house already, so I am glad The Humane Society was able to help in finding them homes.
There are ALOT of entries in the contest. I think I am number #84 - Homeless No More! I have other pictures of other pets on quilts but I really love the one above with those two sweeties on my Giant Churn Dash Quilt!
I hope that you will take some time to visit the Pets On Quilts 2013 Contest. I think you can vote on as many as you would like and I would love to have your vote too! But even if you don't vote for me, please go by and support this very worthwhile project. And if you can make a couple of blankies for your local rescue shelter and/or Humane Society that would be great. Also, I know the Humane Society and rescue shelters will take donations of food, pens, bowls , flea protection and of course monetary donations. And Volunteers! Check with your local chapter and see what they need most.
Yall, I hope you take some time to hug whatever little furballs you have in your life! They depend on us so much! Spend a few extra minutes with them and let them know you love them as much as they love you!
Thank yall for stopping by today! I hope you have a great time visiting all the adorable entries in the 2013 Pets on Quilts! and maybe even sew a few pet blankies!
