pluto eating labels

and the result ... muching away on a label he's peeled off. he doens't actually ingest them, he just plays, kinds like the way people munch on straws.

pluto on cascade

there he is in action! this was actually a hard shot to get because he can see me coming from his beady little eyes on the sides of his head.

pluto climbs cascade

pluto climbs cascade, originally uploaded by myhighfiber.

pluto's been having a day of independence. he's been climbing all over the sale yarns, picking off the price tags (and eviscerating the occasional ball band). i guess he doesn't want to part with them? he's been hitting all the really good ones, the bird know's his textiles! well, not quite, he's been hitting all the yarns at a comfortable height. anyway, better come and get your cascade quattro on sale before pluto gets to it!

Haley & Chelle dropped in today! Haley is smitten with Pluto, who unfortunately doesn't seem to know that she exists. Chelle also brought me another gift (seeing haley is really enough), a tube of Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector! mmm, my hands will be hemparific! seriously, it's really nice to get gifts. as a vendor i don't get many.

i made a .... FACEBOOK account! of course, i am old and all my friends are busy with their kids, so i don't have too many people to network with (i padded my friends list with my brother's friends, i figure it's ok since i've known them since they were kids). more networking for me!

i'm procrastinating ... made the umbilical hat from Stitch n Bitch 2 weekends ago while my friend Jenny was visiting me. She needed a gift for a baby shower. This hat is Baby-shower approved! it was fast & cheap & easy!
