other people's work
(Spike the cat, Jami glazing a piggy, dyed wool in September, the missus knitted the scarf)
So, Jami is a pal with a husband and a baby and came over for some secret Santa work. I made and biqued a mug and piggy for her to decorate, glaze and fire for her boys. Her idea, which is quite brilliant: glaze a pig yellow, for example, and add purple spots.
In September, Missus Muffin attended a natural yarn dyeing workshop, using marigold flowers and carrots, and came home with all this colored yarn. The scarf is finished. It is a huge caterpillar monster, most colorful for the shortest day of the year.
Spike is here looking very fat.
Maggie and Katie were here yesterday too, busy day, and Wendy is due to drive in from Syracuse, but holy cats, it is a blizzard out there, our fun may be postponed.
