Introducing Rocky

BillHubby and I are happy to announce the addition of Rocky to our happy family! Kitteh and Stanley are less than excited but all are adjusting. Slowly.....
Rocky is the 8 year old nephew/cousin/somethin or another of our Petey.  Same wonderful breeders - Venture Bostons of 
Kings Mountain, NC.

Rocky's first humans were sad to part with him but their 5 year old's asthma dictates removing as many allergens as possible 
from their home.

Rocky attended his first social event - 
Siler City's (NC) 3rd Friday Art Walk. 
He flirted his way up and down the street and posed with us outside our friend, Dru's,  
Rocky knows Art when he sees it!  


Hotel Hadley Studios will host a very exciting 
contemporary fiber art show, 
April 15 - May 14, 2011.
 The opening reception will be 
April 15 from 6-9pm.

The featured artists will be:

This exhibition was inspired by the work of Alexandra J. Walters.  

Curator Drucilla Pettibone has worked with both established and emerging fiber artists to put together this group exhibition which will showcase new work and explore issues of war and peace, gender and sexuality.

If you'll be in the area I hope you can stop by to see the thoughtful and thought provoking works the artists have created.

The show will be funded through donations via Kickstarter!

What Have You Been Doing?

I have days that I feel as if I have been so busy but that produce little in the way of "getting things done."
How about you?

I often find myself doing what I want to do rather than what I "need" to be doing.

Lately I have been re-inspired to embroider and cross-stitch.

It is so much more fun than doing the laundry or dusting.

I made this one up.
It's a fire in honor of our first ever Fire-Pit party back in December.
I'll show you when it's finished.

This is a Kristy Kizzee design. I won
Zombie Cross-Stitch kit by Erika Kern and Kristy Kizzee!
I'm stitching it with waste canvas on black fabric that will soon (hopefully) be a shirt for BillHubby.
I'm taking poetic license with the colors. I just started stitching again and didn't have all the absolute exact DMC flosses. And there's no way BillHubby is goin around 
with a blonde on his shirt!

The last couple of weeks have been stressful so I escaped into an old habit.
Backtracking a wee bit - in First Grade I determined that my crayons at school and those of my best friend should be arranged thusly - yellow, orange, blue, purple, red, green, brown and black.

I do not know why. 
I still arrange things in this order.
Since 1964!

Anyway, my doodles are most often a design surrounded by progressively bigger outlines of said doodle. If I use crayons or colored pencils or markers I always start with yellow and so on. (Oh please, someone analyze this for me!)

So this flower was born.
When I finished it the other day I felt so happy and cleansed of all 
that had been plaguing my brain.

I leave you with, as Jon Stewart says, 
"your moment of zen." 
Is there anything more peaceful than tired kittehs curled up for a nap?
