Four Colors of Doberman Cross Stitched Lap Quilt by Donna Campbell!!
the rest of The Four Colors of Doberman Crafts Combo!!
Stitched Darling Dobermans In
"I Share My Life With A DOBERMAN" Quilt by
Donna Campbell In Honor of all the Dobes she has loved! The
poem that precisely defines what a DobeLover feels for a Darling Doberman!
The author is unknown but the feeling definitely is not!! Our
quilter was inspired by these sentiments, and so this lovely quilt was
designed and created to spread the joy. It is composed of five
cross stitched blocks and four framing blocks - the Four Colors of Doberman
are shown in the four corners... Darling Dobermans (DD's) Beautiful
Black DD and Red DD head studies, beautiful Blue DD and Fawn DD in stacked
body position. These, along with contrasting tone on tone tan
blocks, frame the large center panel with the "I Share My Life
With A DOBERMAN" poem which has been lovingly cross-stitched on
same pale blue background as the DD studies. Not enough DD's?
The reverse of this quilt brings another feast of black DD head studies
on a field of antique white - a beautiful foil for these beautiful creatures!
The quilt is made of broadcloth and has a thin layer of batting beautifully
bound in black and finally quilted with large bones scattered about
the whole and smaller bone accents within the poem square! The
finished size is approximately a four foot square - a perfect size for
a lap quilt, quilted coverlet OR a very striking wall hanging!!
In The Garden" cross stitched on a field of pale
blue complementing the quilt! This work of love was created and
donated by Mary Drachus In Memory of her dear Mr. Magoo. It's
been professionally laced and specially framed which has a backing frame
which gives it depth hanging on a wall. The cross stitched scene
is set in an 11" by 14" gold-beaded mat and the finished EyeCandy
measures approximately 19" by 16" - it will come to you dust-jacketed
and ready to grace your DobeGalleria!
"Doberman Duo" Porcelain Thimble donated by
Donna Campbell. The kind of needlework in the quilt inspires this
craft and if your favorite DobeLover loves a needle and thread, here's
a porcelain Doberman Duo thimble to keep those DobeLoving fingers safe...
or to use as Doberman Eye Candy in the DobeGalleria!! The porcelain
is so fine and thin you can actually see through its milky color from
the inside - the regal DD's permanently fired on the outside!!
Winter Wonderland" Set of Three Embroidered Tea Towels by
the Maxter Girls, Grace & Sydney In Honor of all their DD Loves!
These elves have been busy embroidering tea towels showing DD's interacting
with Snowmen... tangled up in a holiday string of lights, holding a
Gingerbread Man and finally... a puddle of water with a sign "Gone
South For Summer" and a pile of snowman belongings... top hat,
coal eyes, carrot nose, mittens, coal buttons and shoes!! :))
The tea towels are 100% cotton for great absorbency and measure 16"
by 25" - a great size for using or just displaying more Doberman
"Dobermans!" 3-Collar + Lead Ensemble! This
"Dobermans!" set has something for everyone or... if DD invokes
the "Doberman Property Rights" directive: ALL MINE!!
This very generous and well made ensemble was donated by Miss FancyNancy
herself, Jan Frick In Honor of all the Dobes she's ever loved!
The woven heavy cotton twill ribbon features a sublimation printed head
study framed by two sitting Dobes in a repeating pattern. The
ribbon is carefully sewn onto strong nylon webbing and features solid
brass hardware - strength and beauty not unlike a Dobe!! There is a
1" tan French satin lined parachute buckle collar with matching
52" lead, and TWO 1 1/2" Martingale collars - one with dark
brown satin lining and the second in a Black & Rust Paisley Print...
Quilted and Appliquéd Throw Pillow donated by
Bunny Clark from Ohio In Honor of her DobeBoy.
This is a 16" square throw pillow that became a crafts mixed media
playing field! Made of navy broadcloth and comfortably filled,
there are several layers of appliquéd adornments and quilting
accents... 5 rows of parallel stitching, trims and an appliquéd
centerpiece DOBE!! This is a visual treat - Doberman EyeCandy!!
Too cute and a great functional DobeGalleria addition!
Doberman Key Holder donated by resident DobeAngel Irene
Jansen In Memory of her dear DobeLadies, Flirt and Kira. Irene
found this (and other treasures) while scouring the net looking for
Dobe items with which to tempt DobeLovers into supporting our Dobes
In Need! This Key Holder is an Art With Function creation by Lisa
Charlton in Canada and is created with a crackleur base and adorned
with a Black DD head study and the ubiquitous "pawprints on our
hearts" accents! It's 4 1/2" by 7" by 1/2"
thick and comes 'ready to hang' by the door from a keyhole hanger with
screw and screw jacket at the handy!! It features 3 hook holders
for your keys, tags or whatever!! "Treat Pouch" anyone?
Ornaments included for the sheer fun of it in this festive
season!! Thanks again Irene!! Two rocking horses crafted from
crepe paper and a lovely beaded gold and green stocking too...
Surprises can only follow... :))
