Gone, but not Forgotten

I have been really absent from the blogging world, but it has not been forgotten. This is a busy time of year for everyone. Santa's helper has been busy up in the studio, and though I have not taken pictures of everything I've done (some things have been ripped out from under the presser foot and wrapped immediately for delivery), some of the recipients have posted pictures on FB that I have been able to rip off  glean. My friend Nancy works tirelessly as a foster Mom to find homes for abandoned dogs, mostly pitbulls. I made her a sweatshirt because she is special (and I don't mean in that derogatory drawn out "spec-i-i-a-a-l tone either!)
 What's not to love about Ruberta?
Ruberta needs a home!

La perrita Ruberta anela ayar su propia familia para disfrutar las siestas y las fiestas. Tiene Usted campo para una nueva amigita peluda?
Or Little Raggedy Ruby?
How about Grandma Ruby?
I'm happy to report that Ruby found her forever family thanks to Nancy's diligent work (and play) with Ruby. Here's what she looks like when she's not in cognito...
This story has a happy ending, but not all shelter dogs have a Nancy as a champion. Remember to check the shelter when looking for a new furry companion. There are alot of animals waiting to be loved. And if you're not looking to increase your herd this holiday season...love the furbabies you already have at home...it comes back to you in wags and kisses!

What adorable photos! Glad Ruby found a home. Alas, no dog for my in my third-floor walkup single-career-woman home. :/

OMG! Ruby is precious! Especially as Raggedy Ruby, and I'm so glad she found a home. Our Wilbur is a rescue pitty and we absolutely love him to pieces. Too many wonderful dogs are sitting in shelters just waiting for someone to take them home.

For the past couple of years, I have made dresses for Project Dress a Girl Around the World, in part thanks to the campaign launched by Mari...
