More on chickens

The Femivore’s Dilemma

"Femivorism is grounded in the very principles of self-sufficiency, autonomy and personal fulfillment that drove women into the work force in the first place."

Happy Chickens have their own website

Happy Chickens have their own online presence. Visit Buffalo Girls Farm. I will be at the Moscow Food Coop Growers' Market on Tuesday selling their fabulous, yummy, very organic eggs. Our stand will also feature my friend Bobbie, of Spring Valley Garden in Troy. She will bring a wide variety of herbs and vegetable starters. See you there!
And Growers Market is on Facebook. I worked on the "facebook logo" for the Coop website last night, I think it came out nicely.

The Art of Knitting or Knitting ART

Knitting has enjoyed a massive revival in the last few years, and boy, haven't we heard about it. But while the papers and glossies have been falling over themselves to report on the rise of yarn sales in John Lewis and how many twentysomethings have been seen knitting in pubs, contemporary textile designers have been busy doing some rather more brilliant things with their needles. New book In The Loop: Knitting Now by Jessica Hemmings charts their work, and Perri Lewis guides you through it.

Handmade Wedding Dress

Little Bo Peep bride marries in stunning dress made of wool from her own flock of sheep

Everybody knits continues: Truckers knit!

"Mr. Banks, who lives in Sioux Falls, S.D., and hauls romaine lettuce between California and the Midwest, learned to knit last year after load-volumes slowed. Creating something tangible beats sitting around the truck stop "talking about who has a bigger radio," he said. He's finished a scarf and socks, and is working on a sweater for his wife."

How cool!

My wee teeny tiny socks are featured on Amy's Stocking Stuffers Blog. Amy has a cute tag line: Don't think outside the box, think inside the stocking!
These little socks make a great Mother's Day gift. Especially if your mom is a knitter! You can order them from my Etsy store or from my Buffalo Girls Design website.
Thank you Amy.

I am working on new Mother's Day cards. Please check back soon for new wonderful designs.

A good friend and natural dyes

My good friend, Lorena, is deep into natural dyes. Here is the results of her fabulous work. She "borrowed" two skeins and created these beautiful colors. I just love the earthy look and feel. Way to go Lorena. Visit her blog to view more of her awsome artistic ventures,

And here is a link to Margo's blog. Margo was the teacher of the natural dyeing workshop. More beautiful natural colors, yes we do need more colors especially now, when the ground is still brownish, just a bit of grass here and there poking out. Notice a tiny bit of snow in the top right corner of the images.
