Artist's Description

“But up in that tree sits a chocolate cat,
And a gingerbread dog prowls below—-
And this is the way you contrive to get at
Those sugar-plums tempting you so:
You say but the word to that gingerbread dog
And he barks with such terrible zest
That the chocolate cat is at once all agog,
As her swelling proportions attest.
And the chocolate cat goes cavorting around
From this leafy limb unto that,
And the sugar-plums tumble, of course, to the ground—-
Hurrah for that chocolate cat! " ~ Eugene Field

I’ve been working on several very complex hand embroideries for baby blankets. I had three grandchildren arrive within the same year, so I’ve spent most of my spare time embroidering til my fingers cramp lol.

This self-satisfied fellow will live on my granddaughter’s blanket which was inspired by Field’s poem The Sugar Plum Tree. I modeled this gingerbread pup off our own Lughboy who wears this look after he has successfully cleared the area of any offending squirrels, rabbits, birds or other tresspassing critters… though I had to scale back the lolling tongue lol The embroideries for this blanket are coming along nicely and I can’t wait to see them all together. Each embroidery is entirely free form, stitched with love and laughter.
