Welcome to Barlee Creations' blog! I am an artist that creates all breed needlepoint dog art and more. On this blog I will be posting dog stuff along with a little bit of this and that. I was not very good at writing assignments for school so what ever my "Dog doesn't eat" I will be posting it here.
It is with a heavy heart that I must tell you of my dear Fussy's passing. The Degenerative Myelopathy and old age took its toll on her body and mind. I did my best to prepare myself for this day but it still doesn't lessen the grief of loss. I want to thank everyone for their heartwarming condolences, I know the "old sweet dog in the wheelchair" touched so many people. I am so grateful for the time I did have with Fussy, I was blessed to have been able to tell her story. Her story will live on in our hearts and in her adult pups Sunka and Cahokia.
Run free my sweet Fussy.

Wowie, 2014 ended awesomely thanks to my customers! I had every intention to do at least one blog post before it 2015 came, but my customers kept me busy stitching instead. They were so on the ball and got their 2014 holiday orders in early. In past years the end of November and December up to Christmas week had been the time everyone would give me their holiday orders, having to stitch each item by hand from scratch in such a crunch was hard to say the least. When you order handmade it is savvy to order ahead of time to allow for the item to be made and shipped in time for when ever the order is needed. This time around my customers where so smart and started placing orders as early as October, making this my best year to stitch holiday orders. I hope this tread will continue into 2015 and beyond. This helped me accommodate more (and bigger) orders in time, it also took a lot of stress off me to get everything finished quick enough so as not to miss the post office's Christmas shipping deadline.
I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store. I look forward to having more returning customers along with seeing new faces. Ok! Let's get this new year started!
