Don't miss the documentary An Apology to Elephants,
which will be premiering on HBO on Earth Day, Monday, April 22, at 7
p.m. ET (check local listings for times in your region). The film
explores how elephants—intelligent and fascinating animals who lead rich
social lives in the wild and play an essential role in global
ecology—have been exploited and abused by the circus and zoo industries.

HBO started working on this film two years ago, PETA has played an
instrumental role by supplying the filmmaker with footage you'll see in
the film, extensive information about elephants in captivity, and
elephant expert recommendations.

on HBO on Monday, April 22, at 7 p.m. ET (check local listings for

moo-moos and cluck-clucks! I've donated a few Patrician Prints for Art Barn fundraiser to benefit rescued farm animals at Happy Trails Sanctuary, Ohio (click banner). wish i lived closer to spend time with all the animals and attend this worthwhile event!
even if you aren't in Ohio, you can still help by sponsoring an individual, like Liberace the rooster, Diamond the gray mare, or Stg Pepper the pig and many many more.
back to the sewing table.. little meeces in progress for tomorrow: March PFATT Marketplace update! enjoy your saturday!
happy March! we've reached the threshold: 1000 Etsy sales! to celebrate (and get me away from the computer) we went to our favorite restaurant last night, Amitabul- korean vegan temple cuisine. their kimchi is the *best* i've ever had. (now i just remembered there are leftovers in the fridge i must attack! :)
the prints have kept me one busy peng peng and yes.. i know i promised new bears last month (how time whizzes by!). i have an acute case of bearmakers guilt, lol. balancing different projects can be a challenge, though i find it keeps things fresh. i have new ideas brewing and the sewing table is a-callin'...
foot tracks crossing paths, punctuating the smooth blanket of snow before sunrise this morning; my husband and local feral cat King Henry are off on their morning commutes!
i was tempted to follow King Henry's tracks to find out where he heads to every day, without fail, sun or snow. the little bugger!
Love Cat & Miss Marple... my February PFATT Marketplace offering! One of a kind set, not to be replicated.
