Towel Dog


We were invited to a 40th birthday party for our dear friend Ann on Saturday night.  The party was given by her husband George.  Really great friends and ones that we don't see nearly enough.  George sent out a really great evite to everyone and in the invitation he said that this was to be a surprise party for Ann.  He wanted everyone to arrive as close to 5:30 PM as possible because Ann was to go shopping with a girlfriend and they would return home between 5:45 PM and 6:00 PM.  We got there at 5:30 and there were other people already there and people arriving right behind us.  I decided to make a towel dog to hold the gift card.  Here is a picture of him.  The head just sits on the body so I was able to slip the gift card in the envelope under his chin.  His eyes and nose are cut from black felt and his tongue from red felt.  This was a really cute way to present a gift card.  Short end to the story - Ann and her girlfriend didn't show up until about 7:30 PM because they forgot where they parked the car and actually thought it had been stolen and called the police only to find out when the police arrived that they were looking for the car in the wrong garage.  That was the perfect ending to a perfect party.  Thanks for inviting us George.  And thanks for losing the car Ann.  We love you both!!
