Small Paws Rescue

I've uploaded my donation pieces to the Small Paws Rescue for their online auction that starts November 16th!

This piece is called Sunflower, 8.5" x 11.5...all hand stab stitched; machine quilted petals and lots of other hand work and beading..of course.  Two of the leaves are 2-D and can be twisted to curl up!

The next one is a small piece from my Underwater Fantasy series I did a few years ago.  Lots of beading, couching different threads, tyvek, which I would burn and painted transfers.  This is a smaller piece measuring 6.5" x 11.5".
This last piece, called Falling Leaves, is made with hand dyed shibori, FMQ and reverse applique (stem).  The leaves are metal that I sewed down the center to attach and which can be twisted and bent to your hearts desire!  It measures 11.5" x 9".  Each piece have a sleeve attached and are ready to hang.
If you're so inclined, check out some of the other auction pieces available...not sure if you can bid ahead of time or not...don't honestly remember.  No surprise there, right!  You can click on the widget on the sidebar of my blog or click here.  It's for a great cause...I'm still so shocked at all the different rescue organizations that are needed due stranded, abused and neglected dogs that are tossed away each day.  I know there are several rescues out there but I can only donate so much.  Small Paws is one that I've tried to work with as well as Semper Fidelis Pet Rescue which is one of my local rescues I try to donate to.


  1. Wonderful pieces for a wonderful cause. We have a rescue dog and know the importance of folks like you who give so freely of your time to support local programs......

  2. Love how the stab stitch and background really set off that sunflower! Is it a year already since you last did this?? Where does the time go?
