Three biggies up in the shop!







The stitches on my shoulder have been slowing me down to a snail's pace in the sewing room but I managed to get a few things photographed and up in the shop this evening. These three big monsters are now available here! Looking for a red or green Big Monster? Or a Von Katz kitty? Check the Renegade Handmade online shop or visit them in person in Chicago as they gear up for this weekend's Renegade Craft Fair...Good luck to all my buddies who will be vending this year! I hope the winds are kind!

one arm..



A minor surgery yesterday (removing some bad mojo on my right shoulder) has left me with a ton of ugly stitches and instructions to keep my arm immobilized as best I can for proper healing (2 weeks minimum). After attempting to do some machine work today, and realizing my left arm is pretty useless at ironing and just about everything else... I returned to bed with a few monsters and some hand-work, four episodes of the new season of Weeds, and a pack of ice!

I've been singing one of my favorite Willie Nelson tunes all day to the kitties..."if I only had one arm to hold you..." Oh right arm, how I've taken you for granted! Hoping the discomfort wears off by this weekend, as Crafty Bastards is just ONE MONTH away (gasp) and there is much to be done!
