I know I hardly ever post on here but I read everyone daily. I'm posting today in hopes to get the word further out especially among the pug crowd. My good friend Janine lost her beloved pug Frodo this past Saturday. She is in Emerald Isle, North Carolina.
Here is a link to Frodo's missing flyer: http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e17/jkg_vader/frodoflyer.jpg
She's already contacted the vets & shelters (they have a sort of 'Amber Alter' system in their area for animals) as well as the local pug rescue but if you know anything else she should do please let me know. We are praying that someone will take him to the vet this morning and have his microchip scanned.
Thank you for your help!

Me walking to be crowned Queen
Posing with my Bellydance troupe after the ceremony
Also this year I made a really nice red silk satin version of Scarlett's 'Shame' gown from 'Gone with the Wind' for a Bride for her wedding. Here are a few pics of how it came out:
The red gown was REALLY expensive one; the fabric alone was close to $1000! I want one for myself now though. LOL!
Seriously, if you aren't in sugar shock from the cuteness you need to get yourself checked out. ;) If you don't know Punchy yet here is a link to her blog & here is a link to her Etsy store! I know my furkids are soon going to have a wardrobe from her!
I promise to post with some pics & info from this year soon!

Here is a closeup of the neckline:
Still alot to do. The sleeves are only half there, the bottom half will be large bell sleeves. The hem of the sleeves will also be beaded so I can't attach them till that is done and then they are lined. Pics will be posted as I make more progress!

Side view, you can see the train. The dress is 8.5 yards around at the hem!
Started the beading for the hem of the dress; the silk is REALLY red rather than pink like my silly camera makes it out to be. FYI, the beading is not crooked either; its just the way the silk was laying when I took the pic that makes it looks so.
My shoes that I will be wearing on the big day! I love them but they are a little snug so I am wearing them to stretch them out a little.
So thats what I've been up to! The pugs are all well and have been trying to 'help' while I've been sewing with things like walking all over and standing on my WHITE SILK FABRIC while I was trying to cut it out! :p Now that I've got the dress mostly together (can't sew the sleeves on until the armbands have been beaded) I've been working on beading the hem (which will be attached once its beaded too) and the pugs are THRILLED about that. Why? Because when I am beading I am sitting in one spot for an extended amount of time and that means they come and lay all over me. Its not easy trying to be productive with three snoring pugs draped across you. Although I did learn that Pearl is a good prop up for the scroll frame that the beading is on. Just have to be careful not to poke her with the needle. :p
Well thats all for now! I hope everyone out there in Blogger land is well!
