Barre Ewe gets published in NOFA/Mass enewsletter

It was a pleasure to hook up Guild friend Betsy with Mindy Harris at NOFA/Mass. Mindy was looking for a story about wool and spinning as the editor of this monthly publication. Betsy has a knack for capturing the joy we all feel about the subject, and has written a number of articles already on spinning and more. Mindy also asked for photos, and I was pleased she liked Barre Ewe so much as to put it on the cover this month's issue. Other photos in the article of Betsy spinning and our Guild members showing off naturally dyed fibers were happily supplied to Mindy as well. Nice commentary by Julie Rawson about her love of knitting, too.

Colin's Creatures | Collectible Porcelain Animal Figurines

Okay, Sara in ME told me about this artist weeks ago and I am only now looking at his sweet and oh so charming work. Very happy to gaze on these creations today, one of the gloomier ones weather and mood-wise. If you need a smile, visit this link.
