Chihuahua Princess

Ladies and (one or two) gentlemen, may I introduce Chihuahua Princess, my latest embroidered hoop project...

This is on it's way to my secret partner in the Misfit Quilter's modern hoop swap, a small swap group that I totally gate-crashed after reading about it on Twitter. I was in the mood to make another hoop. They don't take tons of time and you can have a lot of fun with them.

Her 'diamonds' are clear beads attached with a French knot.

I'm never sure that others will share my sense of humor, but I thought it would be funny to have a totally blinged out princess Chihuahua in her 80's Adidas bag letting everyone know that her other ride is a Prada. I hope no one sues me. I think every boy in my high school carried their books in those vinyl Adidas bags in the early 80's...that is until the handles inevitably ripped out of the rivets!

I'm linking up to Rachel's Celebrate Color Needlepoint pool with this hoop!

One more swap to complete: I'm making a pair of potholders for a member of the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild in a swap with my Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. We are only about an hour's drive apart location-wise and sometimes a few members of one guild will attend the other's monthly meeting. We thought a guild to guild swap would be fun. Have you ever done a swap like that?

This is so cute! I love the bling it is such a good contrast. I often see license plates on beater cars that say something like "My other ride is a ..." whatever their dream car is. This little dog reminds me of a family friend who decked out her little dog as part of her wedding party. Roxy looked like a total Diva.
I have not participated in a swap but it sure looks fun!

That Adidas bag totally took me back. I wanted one sooooo badly. My well-meaning but clueless parents got me a different kind of Adidas bag and it was All Wrong. Grade 8 just wasn't the same after that.

I actually think it's all wrong to carry a dog in a bag but this one it just adorable and a would make a great accessory on any wall ;-)
