Well, I did it again and didn't write for a month!  I know it's hard to believe, but my goal really is to write more on my blog (because I like it and think it's a fun space!)

April was pretty quiet around the shop, which was perfect timing for me to take care of non-shop related stuff in my universe.  Now I'm pretty excited to be this far into May, and am looking forward to the upcoming summer months, too!

Happily, I can report that May has been busier in Bax Cat & Co. land; people are prepping their cats with new fun summer toys and mats!  I just re-listed and renewed a bunch of items in my shop, and am up to 99 items.  It has been my goal for a long time to have 100 items listed... and it's so close!  I hope to sew this weekend and take some photos of new items.  The 100 mark will be reached soon, yay :)

This is a cat mat that I made a little while ago.  I've been rooting for it to sell from the start.  Happy news: it sold a couple days ago!  This fabric was too cute not to buy (don't worry, the ants won't ruin your cat's picnic... or his nap).  I re-listed it in the shop today, because I'm proud of it and would love to share it with more kitties.  It's always fun to see what people buy from my shop, because I love everything that I make!

Speaking of things that make me happy... I also brought back this little bumble bee toy.  I ran out of this bees fabric a few months ago and then went on a mission to find it.  Luckily I did find it, and bought a bunch more.  It's so bright and colorful, and I really like the movement of the bees on it.  To me, it is one of my perfect spring/summer fabrics.  Here is the little bumble bee toy :)

There is something very comforting to me about making toys and mats for cats.  Seeing these two (above) is like seeing an old friend.  Like "Hi, I remember when I first came up with your design... and then when I created you... and now I get to send you off into the paws of a cat who will hopefully have fun with you for a long time!"  Maybe I'm just silly, but I really take pride in the things I make for cats, and am happy when I get to share them with others. 

On that note... thank you for visiting my blog and my shop!  See you on here or over there soon.  Feel free to share us with your friends (and their cats!)
