The Cutest Apron

20141118_055635 On my quest to embroidery everything I see (LOL) I found these cute aprons recently at Target and of course, I thought the apron bib was the perfect place for a little embellishment.

Here is one with a Mamie look-a-like.

We had the most fun Birthday Paint Party yesterday afternoon at The Studio.  Rhea had many of her friends come to paint to celebrate her 7th birthday…and boy did we have fun.  She requested to paint a “castle with purple flowers and a tree”!  So we did.

Do you have a young painter who would like to have a Paint Party?  Contact kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com .  We will be glad to help.

What a terrific time we had yesterday at The Studio-A Place for Learning.  Janice and Ruth taught a super fun class on making snowmen from gourds.

And everyone made the cutest little snowmen and snow-women.  The laughter was contagious and fun was had by all.

Thanks everyone for making this workshop a success!

20141117_065843I love Facebook because I am always seeing cute sayings that people post.  I saw this one a few weeks ago and thought it would make a cute embroidery pattern if I added a little dog to it.  So here it is on a pillow.

I love this one!

Wed Class KidsThe kids painted these wonderful Thanksgiving paintings of a colorful turkey yesterday in class.

Initials!

20141118_055602 2014-11-18 22 03 45  Initials are very popular now.  So the last two days I worked up these canvas with initials.  The K has torn paper over a 12×12 canvas.  The N has a sheet of paper untorn over a 6×6 canvas.  They are both fun to do.  We will be having a class soon at The Studio for anyone who wants to give it a try.  (Watch for the date coming soon.)  These would make really nice Christmas gifts!   UPDATE:  We now have dates for the class to make these.  Join us on Friday, Dec 5th at 11 am  or Tuesday Dec 9th at 6:30 pm.  Contact kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com to register.
