"My Chair"

How many times has this happened to you? You get up from your comfy chair to get something and when you come back, your pet is sitting there, looking very comfortable and looking at you like “WHAT?” It happens in the blink of an eye (or the wag of a tail) and it makes me laugh every time!

"His" chair

I”ve been needle felting dogs again, the dogs are telling a story; it’s the everyday, mundane actions of dogs that make them so humorous. It’s the “human” things that dogs (and cats) do that I find the most interesting. My dog Quill used to jump into the bed next to me, when my husband came into the room and stood by the bed, Quill would be sprawled over the bed and look at him with a face that said “where are you going to sleep?!”

There are several small details in this piece that I think make it more interesting, the leather collar with a copper buckle and the piping around the chair.

Sometimes animals surprise (and delight) us with the things they do!

Needle Felted Dog and Bead Bug

Much like children, dogs (and cats) can occupy themselves with the smallest, everyday things; they don’t need fancy toys to play. It’s like that saying: it’s not what you have, but what you do with what you have that’s important.

Observation

I think the stance of this bug conveys a little attitude; the bug is standing his own ground.
