Puppy Love


Hello, Dear Ones! I want to share with you a little puppy love! My talented dainty fingers have been going to town all for my little tiny granddaughter, Carter. A few weeks ago I did share a few of these photos on Face Book but wanted to show you all.
 Carter loved their Christmas tree so much, especially the lights, that after my daughter took off the decorations she left the tree up a while just so she could look at it. I wanted her to continue to have fun with a seasonal tree so I ordered her a little white three feet lit tree. This is not her tree but my olden feather tree so I could show you the little ornaments I've made for her.

 Okay, I went to town making Valentine ornaments ~ little felt puppies and hearts to hang on her tree. I'm telling you, I have had so much fun making these little darling ornies.

The little Scottie dogs are all hot pink with ribbons around their tiny necks. I made french knots for the little eyes, stuffed the little bodies lightly and then blanket stitched all around! Then I added a little ribbon for the hanger. I got my pattern for the little dog from AllSorts blog ~ if you'd like it just click HERE. You can even make this little doggy to stand up if you'd like.

 Then she had to have some hearts ~ special Valentine hearts. I just cut out a heart pattern and added some little touches of embroidery, stuffed and blanket stitched again.

 A match made in felt embroidery heaven - Hearts and Puppies! I love it, don't you?

 I got to watch little Carter open her box of Valentine ornaments last night on Skype and she hung all the little dogs on her tree by herself ~ all around the bottom! :) I was in Grandmother heaven!

Now my most talented dainty fingers are working on some felt Easter decorations for Carter's little tree! I just love this stuff! :)




Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Puppy Love

And they called it puppy love
Oh i guess they'll never know
how a young heart really feels
and just why i love her so
and they called it puppy love
just because we're in our teens
tell them all
please tell them it isn't fair
to take away my only dream
i cry each night
my tears for you
my tears are all in vain
i hope and i pray
that maybe someday
you'll be back in my arms
once again
someone help me
help me
help me please
is the answer up above?
how can i
oh how can i tell them
this is not a puppy love
someone help me
help me
help me please
is the answer up above?
how can i
oh how can i tell them
this is not a puppy love
