The puppy is turning golden! Now for the face and ears. I realized while working on this how much I enjoy just holding a little stuffed animal in my hands. To think that I have discovered a way, and an excuse, to do this for the major portion of my day fills me with satisfaction that I do know what I need and have the courage to take it - and to make it a valuable little gift. Again the text manager on blogspot will not allow me to go backwards into text to fix my errors. Gggggrrrrr!
