Next is my small fiber art piece that is a portrait of my dog Rocky. Rocky is a Pit Bull and a sweetheart. I have never known a dog that all other dogs and most cats seem to like so well. I never have to worry about fights when introducing Rocky to other dogs, he is so calm and laid back (rather like me) that no one is intimidated by him. He is my sweet Rock.
I would like to submit these small fiber art pieces to the Pets on Quilts online show. You can see the details here: http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/2011/08/welcome-to-2011-pets-on-quilts-show.html
Thanks to Karen S over at A Creative Kick who has also entered some art work for encouraging me to enter this show. There are prizes to be awarded, so if you feel like voting for me or for Karen, or for anyone, jump on over and do so on August 20th and 21st.
The first quilt above is one I did of my llama and I gifted it to the friend who gave me the llama. I used all my own hand dyes to create this small wall hanging. The llamas name is Surprise and I also named the art piece Surprise. Still have Surprise, still have the friend, but unfortunately the friends house burned down and so did this quilt.
Last but not least is my hand embroidered portrait of a most mischievous cat, Simone. Simone is gone now but her memory lives on in more than just this portrait. I altered a photo and printed it on fabric, then stitched over it with embroidery floss to create this one.
Please go take a look at the other offering for this fun little show and don't forget to vote for your favorites this weekend!
