I know she wasn't thrilled, but she came to us smelling a little funny. Kittens need a bath. They're babies, and they need a little help! Here she is, helping herself to the rest.

This photo was taken in Santa Clara a few years back on a particularly warm day in the apartment. Kesa got warm and decided to lay in the tub.

Needle Felted Merino Cloche-style Hat

I finally broke down a few months ago and bought a needle felting hat form. I just recently finished my first piece on it, a merino needle felted cloche in grey with a two-tone purple braided wool trim that has also been needle felted on.

I know it's a little late in the season to be making wool hats, but I love the classic style of this type of hat. I'll definitely save it for next year. Plus, I bet I get at least one night's wear out in it soon, it's still kind of cold in the bay area in the evenings.

Here's the hat alone. It's thick enough that it can stand up by itself.

Here's a detail shot of the braided purple trim. Also, if you look carefully at the rim, you can see just how much my kitties like my hat as well. *sigh*

I can't wait to wear this thing out!

Victory Seeds - Heirloom, open-pollinated, and non-hybrid seed varieties

I am becoming more and more aware every day of the dangers of genetically modified and hybrid seeds. I did not do so this year, but next year I will be planting my entire garden from non-hybrid varieties.

Here is a great website that I found with a selection of seeds. Herbs, flowers, vegetables, etc.

Victory Seeds.

If we lose our traditional seeds, we lose control of our food supply. Preserve sustainable food, plant heirloom non-GMO seeds.

So I've seen several videos lately with cats enjoying corn, often straight from the cob. I guess they enjoy how sweet it is.

Well, we got a cob of corn the other day to try out on the girls, and though neither of them would eat it straight from the cob, they both ate some when I took it off the cob!

Here's a photo of Diz with a few niblets. Nom nom nom!

WOTD - April 16, 2008 - WhooshClang Juggling Video

Ok, so it's not a whole website this time. It's a single YouTube video. But this man is amazing!

He's created a juggling routine for a really cool piece of music, and his motions work so fluidly with it. I really enjoyed it.

WhooshClang!

WOTD - April 15, 2008 - The TreePee Company

I think these are designed for kids. It's pretty dang likely that's the case. But DUDE, I want one.

Can't I have a secret hideout now that I'm no longer a kid?

Planting Seeds in Chalkboard Starter Pots

Here's my pots, all filled and ready. I have a few mosaic pots from a while ago as well. They'll be holding catnip and lavender.

You can view my tutorial for these pots in the craft section, or by clicking here: Chalkboard Starter Pots Tutorial

My pinky makes the perfect sized hole in these little pots to drop a few seeds into.

Those thyme seeds were so tiny!

I lay my pots out on cookie sheets lined with paper towels while they're in the starters.

Here I'm closing the hole where I just dropped my seeds.

I'm using chalk pastel here to write the name of my seeds on the rim. I like lots of color, and i had these on hand, so I used the pastels. You could use regular white chalk or regular colored chalk as well.

Give everything enough water to moisten but not flood the seeds. Water lightly every day, unless soil is still very moist.

Here I'm watering the sugar snap peas and green onions.

Everything on its trays, awaiting a trip outside tomorrow morning.

I love the trays because i can move them outside for the sunlight during the day, but easily bring them back in at night to protect the sensitive little seedlings from the cold until they're ready to be planted.
