These are the first photos of our new addition, Maxwell. Since he is only a month old, he is still living with his momma and Cathy Kirby in Virginia. He will get to come home with me in June after the Scottie convention in Cincinnati. In the bottom photo, he is the puppy on the left of the brindle. He has 6 brothers and sisters. I think he is a real cutie-pie and can't wait to hold him!

It is with great sadness that I tell you that our Grand Old Gentleman Scottie Fraser went to the Rainbow Bridge today to be with his pals Angus & Abbey. He worsened overnight and there was nothing more the oncologists at the Purdue University Veterinary Teaching Hospital could do for him. I would like to thank Dr Abbo, Dr Knapp, Amalia, Patty and all of the others who took such good care of Fraser during his visits. He always seemed to enjoy "going visiting" at the hospital. He was much loved and will be greatly missed. Sweet Dreams Buddy -- I love you & miss you.

This is a recent photo of our 12-1/2 yr old scottie Fraser. He was diagnosed with bladder cancer in August 2006. Until recently he has been doing very well with his chemo treatments. Unfortunately, it appears that he is developing other health issues with his liver. He is a wonderful "gentleman scottie" and still likes a good meal and treats!
Last month I bought a BabyLock Embellisher machine, which is basically a needle felting machine. I tried a friends machine at our monthly Fiber Arts group meeting and liked it so much I had to have one. Here are some samples that I have made with my new machine. Also a photo of the machine. I am hoping to get inspired for a project making use of these samples. The are made with wool felt, yarn and other odds and ends.
