I don't even know what to say.  The legs are beautiful, the concept is wonderful.  I am going to stop making my kids throw away stuff, and I suspect my daughter of doing the same thing by 'rescuing' her treasures.  

I believe I may have to do a similar thing ( of course without the carving...couldn't do that!) and maybe a tad smaller, but I'm going to HAVE to do something like this.  Maybe a shadow box.  Right now you are my Hero for sharing this, you know people will copy, and I hope you consider that a complement.

This is just amazing, by far one of my favorites this challenge. It's going to be a hard one to judge! There's a late night diner/cool kid hangout down town in my area called the Saturn Cafe and all the tables along the windows have a different theme and have treasures under the glass like this. The legs aren't funky like yours but it reminded me of that and I got pretty excited. You did a beautiful job and I can't wait to vote for this challenge Cheesy

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

That is... well... hell, without swearing I really can't express how much I completely adore this. It's totally beautiful both visually and sentimentally.

I am totally going to show this to my husband next time he wants to toss some of the kiddo's toys.

I love your first doggie! Among other reasons, also because you obviously used the same type of fabric I love using for my softies. Wink
Amazing idea, the whole table. Maybe, if I did something like that, mom wouldn't call my treasures junk anymore... The problem is, I can't do it.
