|"Puppy Loves and Doggie Comforts"|
This piece, entitled Puppy Loves and Doggie Comforts, was created in response to a guild Challenge. From there it traveled to shows and exhibits and received an Honorable Mention at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt and Wearable Art Festival XVI in 2005, a 3rd place award at the Smoky Mt. Quilt Show/Dogwood Arts Festival, and was juried into Artwear Celebrated, an artwear exhibit and fashion show at the Studio Channel Islands Art Center in Camarillo, California.
So, for all the animal lovers and those that appreciate light-hearted wearable art pieces, here is a revisit of Puppy Loves and Doggie Comforts. I hope it makes you smile!

The left and right sleeves are different. Bone buttons are sewn to folded origami puffs on the right sleeve. Prairie points and more buttons adorn the left sleeve. Three red hearts are pieced into the left sleeve—one for each of my dogs.
