Land Mines & Fur Bombs

I had my daughter do a little modeling for me this afternoon
and on our way out the backdoor
we had to steer around a few land mines.
The mines were courtesy of our big white pit bull,
better known as the Pigapotomus.....formerly know as the Pitapotomus.
And of course since she's white, nothing is safe....
she drops her fur bombs everywhere.
But....we still love her

So, Taylor's modeling consisted of holding the rug hooked 
~Animal Crackers~
~Rug Hooked Theodore~
from the Animal Cracker Series

I love how they turned out!!
But they are so big compared to their stitched counterparts.

~Stitched Clementine & Theodore~
from the Animal Cracker Series
