DOG DISASTER on the STITCHING FRONT

My lovely dog is in the proverbial dog house today.  I woke up to find my needlework on the floor in the living room.  I had placed it on a small table that I keep near the sofa with all my stitching supplies on it for while I'm stitching.  She must have dragged it off and then proceded to have a bit of a snack.

Here's what it looks like now


The top is salvageable as it's far enough away from the stitching, and even going down towards the bottom there is enough "good" fabric to get it all in, but I'll only have 1" of fabric at the side and along the bottom...

I can't believe she did this?  Is she becoming senile?  Will this happen to me as I age?  Will I go around eating unedible items and think they taste good?  Will it make me sick?  I feel sick right now....

Oh, you poor thing! I'd be in tears, myself! It does look salvagable, though. Lucky for the dog in my opinion, lol.

The dog is very lucky...I'm going to ask Jill Rensel (the girl who framed my other pieces) and see what she says...Thanks for the virtual hug Tamara

You had me laughing at the end, but oh, dear god, I let out a gasp when I saw the fabric. I would be out of my mind right now!!!! Kind of like when a pen mark magically appeared on one of my Mirabilia mermaids as I was stitching it. I thought I would have a stroke when I saw it!!!!

What a naughty dog :( I would be so terrified if I woke up to something like that... At list there's still salvation for the project :)

Oh, no! I'd be so upset. Did your dog slink away with the ears back, mine does when he knows he did wrong. I keep all mine covered with cut up pillowcases, and he does not touch them. I hope you are able to save it and keep on stitching.

Oh, what a terrible thing to happen. {{{Hugs}}} I can't imagine I would have done were I in your place. Luckily it's salvageable.

How devastating! I am glad to hear that your work is salvageable though.
