    "Mandy" Figurine Made By My Best Friend

    This was made with Sculpey clay. I put it here, since it was handmade, and not knit or crochet. My best friend, when she heard that Mandy had passed, asked if she could make me a figurine of her. I gave her my permission, and it arrived today, less than two weeks since Mandy's death. She's quite an artist! I couldn't believe it when I unwrapped it...the likeness was startling and so realistic. Keep in mind, she never met Mandy in person. The markings are almost perfect!
    “I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that everywhere, wherever you may be, the least plant may bring to you the clear remembrance of the Creator. If you see the grass of the fields, think of human nature, and remember the comparison of the wise Isaiah. “All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field.”
    ― Basil the Great

      It's incredible. The only difference is the tail...Mandy didn't have a tail...just the muscle, since they trimmed it extremely short. She gave her a slightly longer tail, which is typical for a cocker, and having never seen her in person, that's understandable. And like I said, the markings are almost perfect...she even almost got the heart on her hip!
