After a few nervous days, I'm so grateful to be back here on my blog. Last week I got a virus/spam email that I didn't handle well, and Google deactivated my gmail account and removed my blog until I could show them I'm not a spammer. Fortunately they have ways all set up to do that, and I now have my mail and blog back. I could have dealt with setting up a new mail account, but losing my blog would have been really hard. I've put in a lot of time here, and it's how I communicate my show schedule - I'm really grateful I don't have to redo all that work!
Speaking of work, here's a photo of me taken by Duffy Schade at the Art For Nature's Sake show in Glastonbury. It was a lovely, sunny morning, perfect for sitting out and working on a bird. I've got my fiber bags on one side of me, and my bird guide on the other.
Here's my latest addition to the bird collection: a chipping sparrow. To me, they sound like a sewing machine. See what you think by listening here.
