because i said i would

hot.dog

this post some sewing - really

my latest stuffie foray.

and proof that i am still finding a bit of time to sew. this summer has flown by. little hot doggie has been sitting around the whole time waiting for legs. and a tail.

this morning the big bug picked him up and told me "it's ok mom. it doesn't really look like a dog. but it's ok. i can tell you've tried your best."

i guess all those pep talks i have been giving her have been sinking in!

how sweet is that story. i love it when kids are willing to reciprocate the pep talks. i am sure it truly looks like a lovely dog...

I imagine without legs or tail he might look like an adorable linen hot dog with ears. My daughter occasionally says to me, "Mommy, I'm so proud of you." I think it's hysterical when you hear your words coming out of their mouths.

it's ok tracy, sometimes softies never get legs, but you certainly tried your best. he is pretty cute anyway, and who knows what you can accomplish with that kind of support!

Gorgeous photos these past two posts! Hope the sewing has been simplifying and therapeutic... I know that kind of work always is for me.

I agree with Steph, and her story and pep talk make this little guy even more special. I melt when wisdom like that comes out of my kid's mouths.

That doggy is cute, and now he has a great story -- even better.

I've been wanting to make a hot doggy for some friends that have a hot-dog dog and are expecting a baby. We'll see if I get around to it!
