Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Hit Me Where I Live

Okay, I hardly ever push charities, but this one hits me where I live.

A guy in Maine was walking his dog after dark and a snowmobiler hit both him and his dog. And sped off, leaving his victim with two broken legs, a broken arm and other injuries. The dog's got a broken pelvis, at least.

Dr. Mel is treating Phoebe.

I heard about this via Rabbitch and the Panopticon.

If you are so moved, Dr. Mel has a Paypal donation button at the post above. Any excess funds beyond those used to treat Phoebe's injuries will go into the clinic fund to help some other family in need.
