Hi friends! I finished stitching the boy poodle and I cut them both out and whip stitched around them both. I still have to make cording for the ornament loop and cut and attach the backing. That will have to wait until Madeleine works this weekend.
Brian and I came one day to do a little more work, since we were working on the apartment bit by bit, and I walked in and noticed something laying on the ceramic tile floor of the bathroom. I could NOT figure out what this could be for a moment. Then I realized it was the boy poodle face down in pieces. The girl fell down also, but she fell into the sink and had only one tiny chip. Why did this happen? We used those Command picture hanging thingies this time. Each poodle has a tiny wire hanging out the back and it is a rather delicate situation. These were made in 1978! I just about cried.So I went to ebay and I found another set for a very good price. Yay!
A half a week later I unpacked Smokey Joe and Tobacco Tess. Yes, they looked fine, but, WHOA! I actually got a headache from the tobacco scent off these two poodles. The poor things. They lived their lives with a smoker. I took Tobacco Tess' picture here with Mrs. Poodle. Tess is on the left. I guess you cannot really tell except in real life how yellow she is. Ugh. Gross. Mrs. Poodle has a pink bow and collar with rhinestones because I painted her that way.
The only other decoration in the bathroom I have ever hung I also never shared with you. I have always referred to it as the Poodle Display Board.
That is it for today my friends. Thanks for reading my silliness. Or maybe I bored you? Or scared you?
Take care. Come back soon
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord 2Peter 1:2
