Whippet Good

dakota.jpgMeet Dakota. She is the one and only true love of my BFF in North Carolina. Dakota and I have a rocky history beginning with the eating of my ipod and ending with the ceremonial burying of my wallet in the backyard. We have worked through our differences mainly being the attention of her owner and my friend. I have bowed to her unyielding presence as the queen of the household and now we get along just fine. In an effort to seal the deal on our life long sharing of her owner I made her this gift of peace and unity. It was also another opportunity for me to indulge in the splendor of Spoonflower. So I made this portrait fabric and fashioned it into a dog bed in which she can rest her royal rump after a long and arduous day of burying my prized possessions (or at least the things that are the most difficult to replace like my driver’s license). I told you I have been busy and this is just the beginning of many little projects I have indulged in since my removal to isolation.
