Awesome Gift

For Christmas of 1990, when Dottie was our only Dal, my sister made me a quilted wall hanging featuring our spotted girl. It was a cherished gift and still hangs in our house today. I remember Dottie fondly each time I see it.
Imagine my surprise this Christmas when Carol gave me this incredible wall hanging of Tess and Jazz! She says her skill set has improved a bit since 1990, but she wishes we'd get another breed of dog...all those Dal spots just drive her crazy!! Of course, it doesn't help that we have very spotty dogs, even by Dalmatian standards!

Here's the photo that Carol used to create her pattern for the wall hanging. Amazing likeness, isn't it? And believe me when I tell you that the photo above doesn't do justice to the actual piece itself.

Thanks, Carol...I LOVE it!!
