Full House

The scene from the living room...  Not a creature was stirring...  :-)  Our 4, the foster, and a former foster who is visiting for the weekend.

Our Dolley is recuperating from a toe amputation.

Last week she did a real number on her toe.

Can you say, "Ouch!!!"  Poor girl.  Nothing broken, just dislocated.  Our vet set it back into position, but it just wouldn't stay - she'd torn the ligaments.  So this past Wednesday she went back in to have the toe removed.  Now she's resting on the couch.

Pressure bandage comes off Monday.  But it's such a relief to see that she's not in as much pain.  That poor toe was totally torqued.

Well, it's been a long time coming!  But I've just completed listing all my unique greyhound pieces to date!  Check out my shop on etsy!  Thank you for your patience while was working on that.  I have a few duplicate pieces, so if you don't see something you're looking for or need multiples, please let me know!

Studio Time!!!

I was able to squeeze in some much needed studio time yesterday!!!  Hooray!  It's very therapeutic to me and I've missed it so much.

June has been a very busy month, starting with Mountain Hounds.  :-)  SO much fun!!!  After July 4th I should be able to create on a much more regular basis.  After all, it's time to start getting things in order for Greyhounds Reach the Beach...

Time for a self-indulgent picture of my current foster, Debit.  :-)

All for now -- until July.

Finishing Touches for Mountain Hounds

As much as I'd hoped to be calm and prepared for Mountain Hounds - with plenty of time to post pictures of pieces - that doesn't seem to be happening!  :-)  Thankful for a 3-day weekend to work on things, pull things together, and pack...  Trying to figure out how the family (including 3 fur kids) and all our stuff will fit in the car.  :-)
