Seen here relaxing on the couch listening to 'Where the Red Fern Grows' on tape, Red Dog underwent surgery to remove a fractured molar and a cyst on her eyelid.  This has brought production at Violinisto to a near standstill. We hope to be back to making shavings very soon.

Rosalie is taken from the Del Gesu violin "The D'Egville". The sound is full size but the physical dimensions are better suited for small hands. Shown here with the first few coats of varnish applied.
