Ok, I’m probably the last person to find out about The Working Proof, but it’s too cool not to blather about. Limited edition prints by a whole shwack of artists, a percentage of each sale going to charity. Sounds good, right? You can search by charity, artist, price or size. Love!

I think we’ve had the wettest spring on record for Kami town this year. Admittedly that still doesn’t add up to much rain, and really not enough to justify bringing out the umbrella. But if I lived in Vancouver still, I’d definitely be trying this out. Recovering umbrellas in the fabric of your choice, how cool is that? And I bet if you live somewhere where it only really drizzles you could use regular upholstery or quilting weight fabric and just give it a good scotch guarding. For now I’ll be browsing all the cool waterproofs and laminates and maybe thinking of doing some stitching for my rain coast pals.laminate (waterproof!) fabrics from (clockwise from top right): Heather Bailey; Heather Bailey; Amy Butler; Kaffe Fassett; Heather Bailey
There’s a cheeky new girl in the shop… Beatrice! She may be named after my pup but she won’t hump your leg. Unless you ask her nicely!
My last post was in April? Really? Yikes! What a slacker! Or maybe it’s just new mum syndrome. No, not a baby, but we did get a puppy. A puppy who seemed calm and submissive (just like Cesar suggests) when we picked her out, but turned out to be dominant, strong willed, and very, very outgoing and energetic. Which has all come together to mean that I seem to spend most of my day as a dog wrangler, using the few short moments when she’s sleeping to do those little things we all take for granted… like showering. For a girly, loves her beauty products and long soaks girl, there’s been a shocking number of days when I crawl into bed and realize I haven’t showered all day… and I’m not sure I did the day before. Too much information? Probably. Sorry.
Other than dog wrangling, what’s up around here? Well the kitchen is progressing, slowly. Three cabinet doors were delivered yesterday. Yeah, I was confused by that, too. Hopefully there’s more coming! And we’ve (mostly my dad, actually) put in a front flower garden and a back veg patch. I’m putting in tomatoes tomorrow and can’t wait! Other than that, not much… but I think that’s about enough!
And huge news… news that I should have shared ages ago… I’m now a contributor to one of my fave blogs Going Home to Roost! Bonnie and her blog are ridiculously awesome and I’m so happy to be contributing the occasional recipe and craft project.
