Two new listings on ArtFire - Mini Greyhound and Whippet

I just wanted to quickly point out two new listings on ArtFire from me..... one is for a Mini Greyhound pattern that I created for peyote or brick stitch.The other is for a Whippet pattern that I created for peyote and/or brick stitch. Eventually I hope to list the actual dogs that I stitched up, in some sort of decorative frame or display. I love these dogs and surprisingly, the greyhound seems to be the hot dog on ArtFire right now. I thought for sure it would be a Pomeranian or Chihuahua. Anyway, these two dogs were inspired by my dog, Apple. She is a greyhound mix, black with some white socks, chest, and a white blaze on her face. She is a very striking dog, very tall, and has a very loud bark which intimidates a lot of people. Anyway, I am stitching up the next dog, which happens to be the regular-sized greyhound and am about 2/3 of the way done... will hope to have it on ArtFire within a day or so... And then I move on to a cat that I created and then a Malamute... I am still stewing an Akita in my head as well as a Scotty.... and then of course more cats.... I need to show equal love, as I have two wonderful kitties as well as my 2 dogs.Anyway, I always stitch up my patterns before listing them to make sure they don't look funny when done. I have a few patterns waiting in the line-up for stitching before I can list them. I wish my mom or sister would give bead weaving a shot, so that they could be my stitchers for when I have a backlog. LOL I will be teaching my kids how to use a bead loom. We are starting out small, with one of my paw print designs that is done and just waiting for stitching. Fun days! I wonder who will love it more, my daughter or my son?
