Good Dogs Make Good Ambassadors

May 22nd: Volunteered a few hours at a Pet Event hosted by Long Subaru of Webster MA. Fantasia (AmStaff) and Mandy (Coon Hound/Black & Tan) are great girls up for adoption at Worcester Animal Rescue League (WARL) and made a terrific show of themselves and their fabulous social skills. Playing with the rubber ducky in the kiddie pool, greeting the visitors' dogs, and giving plenty of hugs and kisses to all rounded out the day. Thank you to the host for giving these great WARL dogs a day in the limelight.

Fiber Animals are Shorn at Green Hill Park Farm

May 17, 2010: a visit to Green Hill Park Farm to see the freshly shorn fiber flock included viewing the llamas and Romneys in a much more comfortable state for the warm summer months. The green vegetation was very, very green, and the air was fresh and clean. Who knew, in the center of Worcester, such an experience could be had?!

Fun at RI Fiber Fest May 15, 2010

Coggeshall Farm in Bristol, RI is a lovely place to host this annual event. A living history museum, the sites provides interpreters who dress up in period costume and discuss shearing sheep, processing flax into linen, and dyeing fiber with natural materials. They specialize in Gulf Coast sheep, which were commonplace in New England during Colonial times.

I need to catch up!

Been dyeing and dog walking and consulting and census-working. No time for blogging? Have photos to take and talk about. Lovely dyeing experiences to relate and display. Oh, and add gardening to that list as well. Though, with tonight dipping into the 30s, who knows what will be left of my efforts. Will take the camera down to the studio and get caught up this week. I promise.

Oh, here's proof of my work today with the shelter dogs. Fantasia was our model,and I was prop master/canine stylist. We're going to feature WARL dogs in upcoming publicity for benefit events happening in June and July, and beyond hopefully. She was mostly cooperative. A nice photo by Lois Bourget, dog foster-er and pretty savvy canine photographer.
