Making the dachshund and snail from Dare to be Square by Boo Davis has been on my to do list for a couple of years. Actually every pattern in that book is on my to do list (the deer is next!). With a friend having twins this week I had a good reason to make them. They went together really easily once all the pieces were cut out (sometimes I wish there was a cutting fairy who would do it for me). Hopefully today I can find time to baste and quilt them.
