Trials and Tribulations, or My Lol Cat is Mean

My lol cat ate my new coon bone. I came home to a mysteriously empty bag and an obnoxiously innocent looking cat, licking her chops. She also managed to rampage through my (locked) knitting stash, and rip 3 inches of skin from my left palm. So my next bone carving project will have to wait.

I know the blog has been simmering for awhile; I've been running to keep up with orders, adding new artisans to the site, field testing new products, and plotting new mischiefs...

The Witch n' Bitches will be held every Sunday from now on, starting next week, but not tomorrow (October 18th). I could really, really use the downtime. Next week, however, feel free to invade the Nile Cafe with your knitting needles and crochet hooks in tow. Cackle with us over coffee to your hearts content!

Man, when cats DESTROY, they DESTROY!

Hope you cleaned out that cut really well, Carmin. Their claws are quite dirty . . . just like human mouths!

FWIW - I saw your pic of the carved Celtic shield knot. It was so beautiful! You are such a talented woman. Must be all those blessings. ;o)

. . . and I'm glad I'm not the only one who has an idle blog these days!

Thanks Milaka!
I don't know what's gotten into her... maybe the seasons changing. I've been downing garlic like it's going out of style, and drowning it in Neosporin. It's past plantain season (those wonderful healing weeds!) but they make a great poultice for cuts, bee stings etc.

I'm glad you liked the necklace :D Eventually I'll start making them for the shop, they just take awhile to carve.
