It's National Dog Day!
Granddog General gets top billing ... well,

major attitude - double check!
|Swings with her best bud!|
What a good ole boy he is.
|Of course, have to include Chance on this special day.|
He's my constant!
His new collars are ready from the finisher,

Above, the stamens are worked with
Gimp! I love Gimp!
Both are couched onto the surface,
both easily add so much
dimension and texture.

I couldn't leave the ends of the stamens just plain ...
so ... of course, I filled them with cut Turkey Work!
This is the first of a series of nine designs that I'm
creating to help push stitchers out of their comfort zone.
They're small treasures packed full of fun!
