Dawn's New Fiber Supply

Dawn writes from Oregon:
Ever since our fiber arts guild moved, it's been hard to find good alpaca to spin at a reasonable price.  I have solved that problem.  :)  Here are my solution: Blaze at the front and Shakota at the back.

 Shakota is smiling.

Roxie and Brad Pit Hanging Out

Roxie on the left and Brad Pit on the right are two very lucky dogs.  They were wandering the streets when Maureen and John caught them.   Maureen and John have been trying to find homes for them but Maureen and John's home is pretty much the home for the two lucky dogs.

Roxie and Brad are best friends for the day, they are hanging out at the pet cemetery!  Why would any dogs and human want to hang out at a pet cemetery?  Stay tuned.
