Not actually sucked into space

Just alternating “out of town” with “ferociously busy”. After the end of the month things will calm down considerably. Right? Before then, there’s Complex Weavers next week (say hi if you’ll be there), and a whole pile of end of year stuff for work. It may be September, but the garden is still going. Well-supervised, […]


I made every last one of my major spring deadlines, both planned and unexpected. (A few minor ones slipped, but let’s not talk about that.) Here’s one: These sprang bags went in the mail to Peters Valley Craft Center yesterday. I’m teaching a sprang and tablet weaving class there at the end of June (you […]

Digging out

I’m slowly getting through all the stuff that accumulated over the last six weeks. The piles of paper are diminishing, all the immediate crises have been averted, I’ve made a small clean spot in the office and uncovered half the desk! (The other half has novel manuscript pages on it, and is exempt from regular […]

March flowers

March didn’t kill me, I’m pleased to report. Not that it didn’t try rather hard, and I’m not out of the crunch yet, but the biggest and most important things are well in hand. I think. Though I’m pretty sure that mowing the lawn, as I did Friday, wasn’t on the schedule for another few […]

Baby it’s cold outside

So I spent the afternoon working on the website. Nothing should have changed from the outside, but the serverguts are all pretty and shiny and clean: updated, backed up, tweaked and twiddled. I don’t think I broke anything, but I trust you to let me know if I did. The main part of this side […]

Medieval life

I got this from matociquala quite some time ago, and yet didn’t get it posted. They got a lot of things right; I only saw one thing that make me cringe. This article suggests that codpieces were a medical as well as fashion statement. It sounds like a “just so story” to me, but it […]

Sorting things

I’m sorting through the last batch of class submissions for FFF (a draft schedule will be available tonight), cleaning up my email, trying to get a few things organized. I have some tabs open and some emails I saved to tell you about. this is also not my cat (sorry, can’t embed). There’s an online […]

Live from the Pink Shamrock

This is very important. Please pay careful attention. This is not my cat. Neither of these are my cat. This is my cat, the one and only Ferocious Monster. Are we clear now? The ones in Pittsburgh are not Morgan. The one in Toronto is not Morgan. The one in Chicago is not Morgan, nor […]


My dyeing pictures from September are around here somewhere. Also the photos from Martha’s Vineyard, and of the central Pennsylvania October leaves. Let me distract you from their glaring absence with dairy products, and so much more:

Continuing last weekend

Today is chill and raining, but I have photos from last weekend for you. Only a week behind – pretty good, given my recent track record. Not that you would know, dear reader, because you can’t see the half-written posts with photos from months ago that I still intend to finish… Complete with eastern tent […]
