I don’t know about your dog, but our dog Penny, is so happy to hear the end of the fireworks.  Our neighborhood was really into the Independence Day activities, lighting the sky for a 10 night period.  Penny finally retreated to the closet, occasionally peaking her head outside.   But then, I can’t feel too sorry for her, considering her wonderful life.  She loves her fenced in backyard with a flower garden to traipse through, an occasional rabbit to chase, squirrels who constantly tease her,  and an abundance of birds.  

More and more fabrics are being labeled “organic”.  But what does “organic” fabric mean?  Organic cotton is derived from non-genetically modified plants and grown without any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides.  The National Organic Program, a division of the USDA, determines the practices allowed by the farmer, certifying the label.  Also the fabrics are certified by GTOS, Global Organic Textile Standard, requiring low – impact dyes and a functional waste water treatment plan.  Dee and I think Organic Cotton feels and sews great...especially for children.
