Hot, hot, hot but I'm not complaining. I need to feel the heat warming up my bones.
There have been complaints today - from Posie. She's one of my two cats. They've been with us for about 18 months now. Tigerlily, our previous cat died at the grand old age of 16. I said no more but then paid a visit to Cats Protection and you can guess the rest.
Posie and Dizzy Rascal, their new names, had been there for 6 months. It was their second stay at the cattery. I'm their third owner. They'd have a fourth but I will not be beaten.
They are destructive, naughty stop outs. Extremely precious considering their background. Posie, in particular, has special requirements weatherwise. No snow, no rain, no wind and an optimum temperature somewhere between 55 and 65.
Today has reached 70+ and this is Posie
She's in the rotten old container I use for weeds with a leave me alone look on her face.
I have been sewing again today. A little house that means a lot because somebody I know lives in a house like this.
Hopefully, it's the first of many. Next time I'll improve the proportions and embellish more.
Also listed today on Folksy - a mauve, organic cotton, baby blanket. Yes, I know it's not the weather for blankets but it's listed until December so there is some sort of logic there. It's also described as being made in a pet free environment. My cats are allowed in only two rooms, the kitchen and utility far from my workroom and any cross contamination!
My pick from July Jewels is a Kindle case/cover from BaggieAggieToo.
Rosie's pieces always look so well made and I love her choice of fabrics.
I'm also spreading the love today to somebody who has stuck to her roots and has relaunched her skills with a new shop Lolly Rotten. It's a creepy perfumery for strange, scary girls. Jody's words not mine! I love the new look and check out some of the names. Good luck with Lolly Rotten. I can only imagine the work that went into its development.
