After finding the crock starting to deteriorate on our go-to crock pot we decided to give the Instant Pot a try. We are getting low on ghee so I expect we will do that over the weekend.

Here is the finished wall hanging! In retrospect I think I should have outlined the grid with either machine or hand stitching to secure it to the backing but I'm generally happy with how it turned out. #autumnsampler

Not what I want to see east of my house on a windy day. 🙁 #brushfire

This is why I took quilting classes originally: to finish cross stitch like quilts. This is the first project I stitched after a wee cheap test project and the first one I have finished like a quilt. The others have all gone into picture frames. #crossstitch #quilting #multicraftual #autumnsampler

The first hat of @thefrostedpumpkinstitchery #BlackHatSociety is complete! Yes, this means Halloween Cat is finished. Pic tomorrow when the light is better.

Took a short trip down to SB today to go to Mermaid Day at the Sea Center. After lunch we fell down a rabbit hole waiting to have room for ice cream from McConnell's.

Between heat & kittens I was awake in both the 2&3am hours. By 4am I was bored and came out to work on my Halloween Cat project and dream of foggy coldness.

The sky looks like fluffy wool tonight.

It was 74F before 6am. I have declared a household emergency and unearthed the window air conditioner to be installed as soon as the other humans in the house are awake. I hope the power grid can cope. ☚ī¸

Friday night.

NOPE. ETA: It is 101F now. 😭 Wake me up when September ends.

Long kittens are long. This is a 36in cushion. They're sprawling out more now that the weather is warming up here.

Got my tween an emoji donut before the monthly specials change @slodoco!

Halloween cats, in person and cross stitch. I started this last year after finishing my Autumn Sampler from FPS. #satsumastreet

Sabine is enjoying her Caturday afternoon nap with Z on the window seat.

I wanted all the crumble flavors so ramekins it is! From top left: strawberry rhubarb, blueberry lime ginger, blackberry lime mint, and plain blackberry. I made a half batch of topping and split it up evenly among the dishes.

Once again I find myself trapped under a blanket of cats.

When a fig bounty comes my way all I can do is make jam. ❤ī¸ This is Fig Jam With Thyme from @foodinjars Preserving by the Pint.

Sam is pretending there are no kittens on the bed. #ostrichstyle

Someone likes being carried around so much that I dug out the old sling I sewed almost a decade ago. I think he might come to the bus stop after he's had all his shots.

It appears my tween might have a future in card making.

The bell peppers are doing amazing this year. More tomatoes are coming along and Meyer lemons are starting to ripen from the last round of fruits. #garden #maybeitisallthebullshitthisyear

This is what I see every time I look at Ezra's face. #threemeringues

I may have just done this. #hamiltour #hamiltonlottery

Whee! Thank you @sewtubbywubby! Z is stitching the walrus right now. I'm taking the sloth to the dance studio tonight. ❤ī¸

Sam is giving Ezra some serious side eye and then I somehow ended up with all three cats on me. #howdidigethere

Seriously. The cuteness is just kind of absurd at this point.

Window kittens want to know what's going on out there!

Did a bit of a walk through the front garden today. Dahlias are still going strong, roses have hit their second bloom, and my spider plants have put out a ton of flowering stalks. I've never seen them do that before this summer.
