This week finds me behind once again. I've promised myself that I'm going to get caught up before the kids go back to school. I've been concentrating on painting and carving all week. We have so much in progress right now just waiting for embellishment and so many that are within minutes of being completed. Courtney has been a Godsend. She's taking over the fitting and taking pressure of Kari (the best stretcher in the Western World.) I'm behind on answering e-mails again, so if you've written me in the last two weeks and I haven't answered you, I promise I'm going to make it a priority next week.
Midge and Gidget are still just the best thing that ever came into our lives. Midge has this precious way of letting you know what she needs by ever so gently bumping you with her tiny little nose. If she doesn't get what she needs she will then get very aggressive and dig at your leg. If she's thirsty she'll point at my bottle of tea or she'll bang her water dish until someone hears her. When she wants a new bone she'll play Lassie and lead you to the treat box. Gidget has yet to learn to get exactly what she wants. She'll put her front paws on you and look at you lovingly. Her humans are so stupid that we all just think she's asking for a cuddle. It must be frustrating to be so cute. It's a good thing she has a sister that takes care of her. She still watches the television with us and barks at actors she doesn't like the look of. I have to wait until she's sleeping before I can get through an episode of "The Dog Whisperer" in peace! They've both been real troopers as we've been spending 12 hour days at the studio. I'm thinking there's a long weekend at the dog park in their future!
Here are some of the pieces I neglected to show last week as well as this week's accomplishments.
