Shaken` The Pom Poms!


Thanks to Madame Samm for creating this fun Hop and to Thearica for keeping all us chickens moving in the right direction.

 
This Poodle is cross stitched on a vintage gingham apron.  I purchased the apron five years ago. After repairing the stitching and the open work I set the apron aside. When I stumbled on her again I knew a few pom poms would be cute.  I made them with Coats Pearl Cotton, wrapping the thread around my fingers.





Thank you for stopping by. Please visit the other participants at the links below. I know there are wonderful things to see.

  38. Oh how cute. I had a poodle growing up and never even thought of that. Course my poodle was a boy and we never gave him a poodle cut.

  39. That is so adorable. Ladies used to always wear aprons but not any more. Now they seem to hang as a decorative item in their kitchens. lol

  41. That apron brings back so many memories. There was a time growing up where those gingham checked aprons were the "thing". Everyone did special cross-stitch embroidery on them. Yours looks so cute with the poodle and the poms.
