Help a kitteh out

Multnomah County animal shelter is bursting at the seams with kittehs! I heard on the radio this morning that they were in taking 25-30 cats/day. That is a LOT of cats.

They are offering waiving adoption fees as part of their “Certified Pre-Owned Cats” program, to place as many cats in homes as possible. These are cats 1 year of age or older.
As a long time pet owner, I do love baby kittens, but I will never adopt anything other than an adult cat. They already have their personality, and won't climb your drapes (hopefully).

I am offering an item of clothing if you adopt one of these lovely felines. Let's review:

Adopt kitteh + free kitteh = happy you, happy kitteh, FREE CLOTHING!

Here is a link to their website about the program:

Here is where you can go to find your new BFF:
Kittehs! Kittehs! Kittehs!

(at the time of posting this there were 39 adoptable cats, I think we all know what goes on at the shelter, please save someones life)

Blog for Better Sewing

So as if I don't already have waaaaaay to much to do, I have been guest blogging on this fantastic blog:
Gertie's New Blog For Better Sewing

It's super cute and she's always working on fun projects.
I have been writing about knits. You can see my posts here:

Other than that I have been attempting to swim, my 2nd favorite thing besides making pretty dresses. The weather and my schedule have not been co-operating. If I could just swim all day and my clothes would sew themselves together on their own I'd be in good shape.

Jené DeSpain ! In Portland 7/9

I am so excited to see the lovely Jené DeSpain next week! There is a rather nice write up about her on the Mercury Online.

See her next Friday July 9th at Pin Me Apparel from 4-7pm. Her jewelry is most lovely. I had the pleasure of using it in my Fall/Winter shoot. Here is another sneak peak. Entire collection to hit the interwebs soon.
