I'm still sewing, even if I do forget to take photos. This week it's dog costumes and flag banners for Christmas presents. We're only buying (or sewing in my case) for the children this year. In years past I would sew ALL the presents, which was taking me 3 months of my sewing time. I couldn't keep that up, so this year I only have 5 to make. The dog costumes look sort of weird, but I'm hoping they look better on.
Esmerelda lived with us for a couple of months, then one night she ripped through a window screen, and disappeared into the night, never to be seen again.
My cousin found Puss as a kitten, stuck in the wall cavity of her shed at Gunns Plains. She convinced me to keep her. She wasn't an affectionate cat when she came here, but became more so as time went on.
"Thousands - millions and billions - of animals are killed for food. That is very sad. We human beings can live without meat, especially in our modern world. We have a great variety of vegetables and other supplementary food, so we have the capacity and responsibility to save billions of lives." - His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
