It's all good ...

Good news, that is.

Thanks to the generosity of stitchers, we have begun our sponsorship of some "friends" at "Best Friends". Since it is your dollars that are providing these sponsorships, I wanted to share with you what we have been able to do with the funds from "The Menagerie" so far ... I say so far because we are hoping we will be able to continue these sponsorships with the profits from this chart.

Here are our three new "best friends":

And last but not least ... for all the cat fanciers that bought "The Menagerie" ...
the loveliest kitty we've seen in a long time ... just look at those eyes!

You can read their stories by clicking on their names ... then scroll down the page to find them.

One other special photo:

There is a litter of these little cuties being born in Loveland, Colorado on March 21 or 22 and I am trying to think of a name for mine. Any suggestions? There will be 5 to 7 puppies in this litter. The mom is a beautiful black and white beardie. The dad is brown and white. I have requested a black and white male ... for obvious reasons. I'll keep you posted.

And last, but not least, I have sold my home. Unfortunately, part of the deal is that I rent it back for six months. Okay. Nice slow move. So I will also keep you all posted as to when the move will occur and if we will have to shut down operations for a few weeks to accomplish this task.

I promised good news. I delivered :-)

My thanks to all of you for your support of "The Menagerie". You are a very generous group of people.

Love and peace,


  1. How about Pepper for his name!

  2. Great news! And your puppy will be adorable. I'm bad at names. Oreo is too obvious I guess. I know you will find the perfect name.

  3. That's wonderful...on all counts :) I have to finish my ABC Hornbook before I start The Menagerie but I have it all kitted and ready to go. My dad loves all animals and all animals love him. I will do it to honor him.

  4. Glad you sold the house. Congrats on the upcoming arrival of your new puppy! What about Pepper? Or go with a literary or artistic name. I have a rescued 6 month old beagle puppy, his name is Romeo.

  5. O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
