July Newsletter

Happy 4th of July!
Gosh, where did June go?  Boy, this Summer is already going by too fast.
I'm tired of rain and have enjoyed laying out on the back patio soaking up the rays.
If you don't see me in the Shop and it's sunny out, that's where you can find me.
Just hanging out being a sun dog.

We've had some new fabrics come in, including Golden Retrievers, Moda flannels, light pastel batiks from Maywood, Henry Glass Butter Churn by Kim Diehl, some yarn dyes (homespun) from Henry Glass & new patriotic fabrics.

My kittens are doing well. My 2 greys ones have homes but my 2 tigers are still waiting for homes. Mom and I are asking $15.00 homing fee to cover some kitten expenses. On Monday, July 1st, they will be getting their distemper shot, wormed & another wellness vet check over.  They will be ready for their new homes Monday afternoon.
I would really appreciate it if you would spread the word on my foster kittens. Mom and I would love to get them furever homes soon. 
I will miss the little furballs, I really love being a Doggie Daddy but Mom says I have enough cats. I really love cats.
 My little kitten kids. I love them so much.               Sometimes one escapes... Do you see her?
