The Miniature Dachshund Sculpture Appreciation Society

Its not Embroidery, its not Craft, its not Fibre Art.
Porky and Blodwen get to grips with Barbara Hepworth.
A last minute dash with our friends to the Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal for the last day of the Ben Nicholson Exhibition which was excellent.
I doubt if I'll have time to do any sewing this week, another very busy one including hospital (nothing serious) church flowers for a wedding, and a workshop.
Hope this will do for now.
Please do click on the photograph to view their expressions more closely.
Enigmatic would be the word I would choose to describe them.
Or perhaps inscrutable?

More like 'who do they think we are'???

Hi Jackie, jealous gulp... Greece sounds nice, I hope you had a great time, I bet you just lapped up the warmth. I shall be legging it up to the exhibition I love Ben's work it always inspires me... I adore Kendal's charity shops, you can always pick up bits of treasures. I think it is the 'Art run' soon, I went last year, lots of open houses, and exhibitions in artists studios and lounges, bit of a treck around, but enormous fun. Have a great weekend and thanks for that lovely information.

Your Greek trip sounds idyllic. I wish I was back there, I been in a permanent funk since I got back.

I would have said that they were puzzled. Why put them there for a photo when certainly dogs are cute enough on their own with no need for fancy sculptures in the picture!

It's nice to see dogs that appreciate art. I've tried to teach Jack a thing or two but he keeps mistaking my garden art for fire hydrants.

Most wonderful expression on the pups faces. Too cute! Photos of Greece.....beautiful! Needlework stitches enticing. Now, have a great week and we'll catch up later. Pat

Awww - they look fabulous. I think they are telepathically saying to one another 'look gormless - she'll take a picture' ;-)

Loved your hamster story, by the way. It would seem I'm not the only one with a rodent with bags of 'personality'.

I just discovered your blog. I love the dogs! They are both very cute! Is the gray one part schnauzer? I ask because I have a Miniature Schnauzer named Sally, and she is the very same color. The eyes look very similar too.

Such gorgeous dogs, my little girl would adore them... Just read your last post, looks like you had an amazing holiday. I have been to Rhodes a couple of times and I even worked there for a few months when I was 18 (seems like forever ago now..), your photo's brought back some lovely memories. X

They are the cutest dogs! They are like little old men. :O)

Oh dear what an indigent look your dogs are giving you - my little girl [doggie] she gives me looks like that & we reckon she is saying 'ohhh it's a dog's life ...' ha ha
Be thinking of you & hope all goes well with you hospital stay ... get well as I will miss having a gander at your blog - love your embroidery & photos ... you are blog famous as I've been finding references to your blog all over the place the last few weeks so congratulations ... OOroo ... Bethel of Bethania

Mini wire hairs! How fab!

Dachshunds...sot sweet and so tricky to needlefelt (the little legs!)

My blog is usually known as Middle of Nowhere, but I couldn't have that as the web address, as someone else had it, so I called it all around us (momentary panic) as a technical name but Middle of Nowhere as its real name (like when someone's parents call them Sebastian and they call themselves Kevin). But my blog's been knocking about for so long now that it doesn't matter at all, it gets called both and I don't mind at all. :)

I'm still trying not to be too envious of the Greek trip...

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

I would call them wary, and adorable! They are just so charming and I love their names!! Edward sends them both his best!

Arrrghhh - I want me a dachshund - I wonder if Poppy will notice if I sneak one in the back door.

So glad that you had a wonderful, sunny holiday - that sunshine will last you all winter!
