Again with the Hamilton references! But, really, that score is so relatable sometimes. The house is, indeed, a lot quieter. We've lost our grouchy, talkative, always-underfoot fuzz butt, and it's tough to do much more than mope on the couch and force repeated snuggles on his brother. [Raven is sort of up in the air … Continue reading It’s Quiet Uptown
So, that last post was a bit of a downer. Not that I'm sorry about it. Life is full of both the joys and the sorrows, and I think it's a mistake to avoid talking about tough situations and topics.

I always get so backed up with crafting projects in the weeks right before Christmas - which … Continue reading Getting an Early Start
No, not cat quilts. Nor quilted cats. Quilt cats. That is clearly how Alvin and Raven see themselves. They LOVE quilts. They love when I'm laying out the fabric to cut.
