Wonderful Wednesday - Successful Surgery???

Welcome to this week's installment of Wonderful Wednesday!!  This week I'm here to tell you about a surgical procedure that I alluded to in Saturday's ScrapHappy post.

The horror!!  Mom found a hole in a special friend.  Baby can't sleep without Ruffy!  The Joyful Quilter to the rescue:

With the "Lovey" secured to light-weight fusible stabilizer...

I sewed around the edges and "birthed" the cuddle pup:

Notice the Band-Aid for his boo boo - Mom found a hole, which I stitched up prior to "surgery":

A lap around the perimeter...

Followed by another for good measure...

The patient looks like new:

He spent some time in "Recovery" just to make sure his vitals were stable and that there were no complications:

Ruffy was driven by "ambulance" (otherwise known as my car) back to his home and the waiting arms of his boy...

... Who promptly performed the "sniff" test:

While those photos make is SEEM like the surgery was a success, it took the weekend to know for certain, as the verdict was still out.

All was smiles...

... Until the boy touched the new fluffy side.  Definitely a mixed review!!  Only time will tell.  Days passed.  Finally, news arrived.

Mom sent some additional photos and heaved a HUGE sigh of relief because...

Hooray!!!  The surgery was indeed a success!!

Until next time...
Hope for the Best!!!


  1. Oh how cute! Glad the patient was able to make a full recovery.

  2. So adorable, can't decide which is cuter. I know where your heart is for sure.

  3. Aw, so sweet! I remember my Mom doing "surgery" on my favorite stuffies when I was little. Very important work! :)

  6. Dr. Joyful, you did an excellent job by the look of that smile. Awesome! So cute too. ;^)

  7. Oh so cute narrative - and I can relate! Loved the story!

  8. Great to know that the boy's Lovey is well and back on duty. Now Dr. Joyful will be on call 24/7 for years to come. ;)

  9. Oh, my gosh, that is too cute! The smell test -- I love it! All quilters hate mending, I think, but when it's for one of the little ones, it's delight.

  10. Cutest blog post ever! Oh, my gosh. I want to go back and read it again and again! Such a happy little story!

  11. Haha :D "The Sniff Test" :D Super fun post. Thank goodness acceptance was achieved. I know how bad it can be!

  12. That is so cute! Did you make it originally too? I love the new minky on the back. It looks soft and cuddly.

  13. That's the sweetest little puppy quilt ever! How fun! Can't wait for grandkids some day. I hear they're great.
