I am just loving the pieces I have been creating. I steered away from plain fabric that I would stain with tea and coffee and then dry in the sun. Instead I visited the fabric store and took my 16 year old with me. He was a good sport because we were in the store for over an hour. Yards and yards of fabric. I went crazy.

A year ago I went shopping in the seamstress district of Hong Kong and I picked up a yard of feather edgings. BOO-YA - I put the feathers on this piece and it sits amongst my pug collection:
I must get back to sewing pug ears now. Until then my BLOG BUDDIES - I throw out Pug Hugs to all.
