As you can see, he didn't go without harm in his absence. Only Ziggy knows what happened but he returned with a golfball sized abscess on the side of his face. I took him to work with me on Monday and after a little shave and draining of the abscess he was (almost) as good as new. I am thankful he returned with no more than this small injury. I can hardly wait to see what worry he can come up with for me next. He has now been dubbed "Frankenface".

I think I mentioned that I am trying to make some patriotic/summer ornaments so I can decorate a tree for the summertime. Here is my first finish towards that end. I giggled at this one when I first saw it on Paulette's blog and knew I would have to stitch it. It has a dog in it after all. :o)
Of course the poodle had to have a patriotic bow on it's poof. :o)
This bunting fabric in my stash made for the perfect backing. I gave it a little coffee bath to tone down the bright white that it had in it's original state. A bit of pom pom fringe and a wire hanger finished it up.
Time to go check on the ribs. Are you ready for some football!?
