Quilts hanging on the line provided a nice side-drop to the scene while the spinning wheel faced down the valley. The quilts were made by (l to r) by my beloved Aunt Bonnie and Dave's birthday quilt was made by me. We were all pleased with the arrangment and feel it adds greatly to a video that lacks textural softness. The quilts and animals add a touch of gentleness that softens the video and gives a more rounded picture of crafts, especially fiber crafts, in southwest Virginia.
~rain which we desperately need, dear God
~friends, some near, others far away but all dear
~a rich and varied heritage and culture
~critters, beasts and varmints - even those who do the nasty jobs
~the privilege of living @ Thistle Cove Farm in the USA!

She had a number of doilies made and a couple of beautiful white Celtic looking crosses. Of course, those crosses came home with us along with the wonderful memories of Haghpat and the "Haghpat Fiber Femmes".
