Let's get Miss Cuteness out of the way first...
On the weekend, Gordon bought Emily the most expensive kitty bed in the pet store!
Only the best for his little princess. Emily approves!
Please ignore hideous decor in our guest bedroom, which is Emily's home base while I integrate her into the rest of the menagerie. I hope all the pink doesn't permanently damage her! Apologies to you pink-lovers out there. When I was a teen, I did have a pink room, but now I'm more of a red kinda gal.
I think these two are both very adorable. Gordon is totally in love with his new kitten.
Can you tell? Hard to believe he's all tough-ass when he puts on his lawyer robes and goes to court.
And now for the chicken content. Here I am with Charlotte and my new great chicken quilt!
Cluck-tastic! (See? I like red. NOT PINK!)
Isn't it fabulous?
This quilt was in the fundraising auction for the Friends of Pets in Anchorage, Alaska. My friend Peg volunteers there, and I have done a few design projects for them over the years, including this fun 2001 Dog Jog t-shirt:
...and the logo for their annual quilt auction:
Something about Friends of Pets obviously makes me think of magenta, purple and lime green! :)
Peg knew that I liked this quilt, so she secretly procured it for me, then sweated buckets while Canada Post took FOUR weeks to deliver it!! But it is here now, and I plan to hang it in a place of honour. Thanks, Peg. It was such a wonderful surprise.
If you are looking for a good cause to donate to, Friends of Pets is very deserving. Click here for the donation form. They do great work way up north.
And if you're looking for a doggy daycare in Anchorage (surely someone out there is from Alaska!) I highly recommend Dog Tired Doggie Daycare. Peg works there and I designed their logo too...
Yeah, there's that colour scheme again. Maybe it's something about Alaska that makes want design in bright colours. I visited in 2003 and loved it. Can't wait to visit Canada's true north some day. We were considering a move to Whitehorse back in 2006. Gordon has been to all three territories (Yukon, Nunavut and Northwest Territories), but Iv'e been to none.
How's that for a digression? From kitten to chicken to quilt to logos to dog daycare to the north!
I need to go cuddle my kitten now...
