with a broken machine, still doing things

 I've been doing a lot of embroidery this past week for my local Chihuahua rescue group.  I made 10 bags with chihuahua designs on them.  These take about 2 1/2 hours to stitch out.

 These two designs take about an hour to stitch out.  Long hair...
 and short hair.

 I also made 57 bandanas for dogs of all different sizes.

Each one takes such a small amount of fabric and I have so much scrap fabric and can't make quilts right now that making these little bandanas is satisfying the need to create something.

I dropped off all of these donations to my local rescue group today and hope they are able to use them to raise some money for saving a few more dogs.

You do such an amazing job and I am so humbled to call you friend. I am so blessed to know you. I have taken up crocheting, right now just scarves for the Diva grand, but I hope to take a class to make afghans and then when I am relaxing (yeah right) in the evenings away from the machine, my hands will be busy!

Love your Chihuahuas!!! I have a short hair cuddled against my right leg and a long hair snoozing against my left leg!! Both rescues, totally loved by someone who always hated "rat dogs"!!! I still love big dogs, but these girls have been such fabulous companions and they are so easy to travel with. Lucky rescue organization!!!
