This is not a bear. But a minute or so after I took this photo this morning, my dog and I ended up in a scary situation with a bear who charged us repeatedly, coming within 8-10 feet, until we managed to get far enough away from where her cubs must have been. I’m grateful to get to live in a wild place and I’m very grateful none of us involved got hurt today. #bearencounter
The uncommon beauty of “common” milkweed
A few more from the print shop. Especially the first, from Wendell Berry, which echoes my ‘business’ name and gives it a much greater meaning. Work like snow. #arevolutionarypress #wendellberry #departmentofwisdom #activism
So... In good Revolutionary spirit, I enjoyed another collaboration with A Revolutionary Press this July 4th. The bizarre slogan and graphic on the front of the card is an authentic mid-20th century newspaper advertising block that I found on eBay. The punchline is mine. Going out to #arevolutionarypress subscribers this month! #climatecrisis #motherearth #letterpress
The teals of Hydnellum mushrooms. I don’t always get them, so when the magic happens... 😍🤩 #mushroomdye #hydnellumpeckii #hydnellumspongiosipes #naturaldyeing #foragedcolor
Gosh, thanks everyone who came out yesterday to the Athens Meetinghouse quilt and craft fair! It was such a sweet event and I loved the opportunity to sell hats in my hometown, where all the colors grow. Also, the wild madder, my favorite red dye, is blooming right on time on the solstice, and is a gorgeous white backdrop for vetch, clover and maiden pinks.
