Big news at our house!

Last year on March 25 we said goodbye to our big black lab

Yesterday, a year and a day later we said hello to the new dog in our lives

This is Gypsy

She is a lab cross puppy whose mama was rescued in Galveston, TX and she was 8 weeks old on March 25

she has amazingly blue eyes

my daughter and son in law were our stork assistants, taking us across the Denver area (in the snow!) to pick her up from the foster family that had her, her mama and her 4 siblings in their care, which meant I got to hold her on the way home


and when we got her home, she had a very busy afternoon, helping load the dishwasher, shoveling snow on the back deck and playing with Mr Cute
yes indeed, life will be a lot more exciting with this little girl around

earlier in the week there was progress on projects

these three bracelets are made of little glass beads worked over memory wire -- a different technique than I usually do

and I have now started this bracelet which is bead embroidery around three resin cameos -- more like my usual thing

this piece is ready to be sandwiched and quilted -- YEAH!

and this piece is moving toward finished as well

the sweater I'm knitting for my daughter is moving right along too --- this picture is actually from about the middle of the week and I have actually started working the first sleeve now

on Wednesday we had about a foot of snow, it snowed some yesterday and we are supposed to get some more snow on this Wednesday ---- in between it's sunny and clear --- got to love spring time in the Rockies!
