Here she is, my new editorial assistant – Buttons (aka Jackie B).  She is, to state the obvious, our new Jack Russell Terrier puppy. Born in Ireland on March 31, 2011, Buttons came to America to be with a co-worker of my husband’s, but that didn’t work out. So this lucky girl gets to hang out with me and sit in my lap while I edit quilting books. She’s a little doll, who will be a lot more adorable once she’s house trained!!
