Yes, I know this is a blog about fiber arts.   What looks like a lamb and is as sweet as a lamb, but is not a lamb…?

Yes, our family has been rescued, with the arrival of Elsa, a three year-old Labradoodle.  She is settling in, and, as the photo shows, really blending in!

Our daughter and future son-in-law, Lizzie and Josh, along with Josh’s Mother, Nora, had been fostering Elsa.  Lizzie and Josh own and operate “Petiquette Pooch Concierge,” a dog walking/in-home pet care/transportation/dog Bed & Breakfast business in the very dog-friendly neighborhood of South Boston.  Elsa has been lavished with care and affection by Lizzie, Josh and Nora while waiting to be brought to our home; and before being in their care, she was loved by her original owners and their family.  We feel grateful to have Elsa, and so thankful to everyone who helped nurture her sweet nature along the way.

Elsa already seems to love being in my cozy studio, resting on the carpet that matches her curls.  I am looking forward to long studio days together, with Elsa snoozing under the work tables while I felt and resting by my side while I spin, punctuated by brisk walks in the neighborhood.

After travels this summer to Ireland, twice, and to Boston, twice, I am so ready to felt!  And so happy for the studio companionship.

  1. This makes me SO happy! She’s finally found her forever home & family 🙂

    • She’s settling in beautifully. She’s a love-filled, sweet-natured, bundle of softness. Thank you for all of your tender loving care for Elsa during her time with you. Today I’ll see how she likes being in the studio for a felting day!

  2. Ooooh, Elsa is just divine looking, I love her and doesn’t she match your carpet perfectly!!!

    • Hi Nicola! You’ve been enjoying amazing fiber adventures this summer: dynamic patterns, colors, shapes! Your blog is a sort of creative tonic.
      Sweet Elsa joined us for an outdoor Beatlemania concert this evening and she was so happy — surrounded by so many people and so much activity. She’s my lamb. As she settles in she’s become so much more expressive and affectionate, and it’s wonderful to experience this.
      Best wishes to you, across the miles…

  3. You are not only a fiber artist, but an artist with words also. Your expressions are beautiful and your love of Celtic spirituality exudes through your writing. I was deeply touched by how you described your family as being “rescued.”

    • Thank you so much for your encouraging comment! I read your recent blog posts, and really enjoyed them — especially the “boogity, boogity, boogity, amen!” experience, and your “Smurf” confessional. Isn’t this an amazing time we live in, to touch and be touched by kindred souls through cyberspace! All the best to you and your family! — Ann
