bring your pet to blog and recommendations




once again, PL helping with sewing
i feel bad not having posted any of my own projects lately. i've been excited to start sewing, but now have a cold, so haven't done much...

book rec: Coming of Age in Mississippi by Anne Moody - this outstanding autobiography is the kind of book kids should be reading in U.S. history classes!!! an engaging, moving, inspiring, infuriating, straightforward and honest account of growing up black in Mississippi in the 40's and 50's and of the civil rights movement in the 60's. one can also find in it the interconnection of issues of race, poverty and sex/gender.

movie rec: Thumbsucker - a sad, sweet, funny movie with excellent acting (except for Keanu's acting of course, but that's to be expected).

Great pics of your kitty. My cat does exactly the same whenever I get fabric out, he's helping...

I just discovered your blog. These pictures are really cute.

He, he.... when my cat gets sad - usually because she can't decide where to sleep (so many choices) - I have to throw a towel over her. It sends her to sleep straight away.

Your cat pics are so cute.
