Up, Up and Away!

First, let me wish everyone a happy Autumn Equinox! It's been quite a coupla weeks here. Still trying to shake off this lingering cold and nagging cough for 2 weeks now (as one of my best friends and I call it, the Chicago Cough~ it does not respond to any over-the-counter products or herbal remedies, lol) hence I haven't felt much up to sewing. So it may be a bit longer til my debut *wee cats* will be listed on my web site... but so far they are looking quite adorable.

Speaking of cats, I recently discovered a feral cat colony living in the parking lot of a grocery store I frequent. A tiny gray kitten with a misshapen tail (curled up in a bushy spiral) has become my mascot for the colony... he was the first cat I saw. It breaks my heart to see these cats out on the streets, and it's entirely due to folks not spaying/ neutering their cats and then letting them run loose outside. Frustrating to say the least, and the emotional stress over what to do about these kitties didn't help my cold either (yes, I visited them during the crazy rainstorm last week... cough, cough). But I will continue this story another time...

Upcoming! I have a fun new item for my Etsy shop, which my hand-stamped Sock Monkey balloon gal note card will be attached to it! I will be sure to let you know when they're available.

Here's a pic of little TOKO bear prototype, in the "fur" (pattern available in my Etsy shop). He just looked too cute and small sitting there on my shelf, awaiting to be sent off to his new home. {{hugs}} to everyone who ordered my bear patterns~ hope you are enjoying making them! Bye for now and have a great evening!

Happy Autumn to you to Peng Peng.

I'm so sorry your still feeling so awful. Those pesky coughs are so hard to get rid of. I am so thankful that I haven't been sick yet.
Knock on wood. Knock! Knock!

I was in downtown Bellingham not too long ago and saw two grey cats in the alley behind the Greek Restaurant. One was definitely younger than the other and they had a dish of food and water near by, so it looks like the Restaurant staff is keeping them fed. Thank goodness. It always saddens me to see them out roaming around like that too.
Take care and I'll keep a look out for your newest update.
Hugs,
Karen
