Getting back to business

It's been a month of the plague here in the Kingdom. Even Cassie's been sick, but thanks to the wonders of modern medicine (and good - if expensive! - veterinary care), we all seem to be back on track. Since the world rolls on, even when we're too sick to notice, we have a couple of news items to catch you up on ........

1)  There's a new animal welfare group in the Kingdom. The Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project is determined to look after the feral and stray cats in our community.  They're just starting to organize. You can imagine how expensive it is to care for a group of cats....not just food, but vet care, too.  To that end, we've offered a few of our recent knits for fundraising. If you're interested in helping out, please go have a look at their Facebook page. I'm sure they can work something out if you need the item mailed. At the very least, you can Like the page and share with your Facebook friends. The cats will thank you.

2) Our friend, Karen at Sewkaren-ly Created,  has a quilt pattern in the running at Craftsy's Pattern Design Awards. They've narrowed the finalists down to FOUR!! And hers is one of the 4. Her design is called: Rhythmic.  If you click here, you can read her blog post. Follow the instructions there to vote, and don't forget to leave your email address, because you could win a free class.
