Postcard Bonanza

I am definitely having fun with the postcards. Here are some shots of my first sets of postcards.

I call these my "Splendor in the Grass" series.

This is my "Ribbon Bow" series.

I don't really have a name for this series -- just the background is the same.

This is the only non-series piece -- at the moment.

This series is a continuation of my "Happy Hour" series.

You can see others of my "Happy Hour" series on my website.

Four-Footed Muse News

Hudson has recovered nicely from his surgery and is completely unrepentent. So sad -- I had such dreams of him becoming my studio companion, but now the studio is off limits to this fiber-mad dog. He does look quite stylish in his post-surgery collar, though.

Now I must work on turning Bree, our new puppy, into a fiber-trustworthy muse.

Bree is a Rhodesian Ridgeback and we are hoping the she is able to distract Hudson from swallowing any other non-edible items.

A Lust for Fiber was His Undoing

Hudson has taken his lust for fiber just a little to far. Last night he was rushed to the emergency animal clinic for surgery -- he had eaten a part of a stuffed toy and it got caught in his small intestine! Today, we transferred him to his regular veterinarian for a few more days of recovery before he is allowed to come home. We, of course, are using this time to rid the house of all soft chewables! Gads, that was one expense toy. (Any one interested in buying some fiber art to support the "Save Hudson From Fiber Fund". LOL)

We should have known he was destined for trouble with fibers. Above is a photo I took soon after we brought him home when he was just 8 weeks old. Now at 10 months old, he would probably have no trouble eating the ball of yarn!

I was so worried that he had eaten some fabric scraps off of my studio floor, that I was actually relieved when we found out it had been one of his stuffed toys. I'll be making my studio a dog-free zone anyway, just to be safe.
