Dragon in a cave yarn bowl …again. I almost feel apologetic about posting yet another Dragon yarn bowl. Each one that I make is slightly different from the last because there are things and features I decide to change or improve. I’m keen to try this design in different glaze colours like greens and reds. This bowl design is available at earthwoolfire.etsy.com or via email@example.com £100GBP +P&P ($168+shipping)
All that day she had the strange feeling that she was taking part in a theatrical performance with better actors than herself and that her own bad performance was spoiling the whole show.

After hearing the same question over and over from friends and family — “Why aren’t you married yet?” — art director Suzanne Heintz got tired of it and set out to do something about it. She got herself a little family…of mannequins.
She’s underlining the fact that for many people, a family seems to be little better than a trophy or badge to prove that someone has succeeded at fulfilling society’s expectations of them. How many families look great in photographs but are actually empty inside? The point is not to condemn family life, but to refuse to accept that a good life is simply one that looks good to other people.
Octopus yarn bowl. The glazed result. I’m pleased with the outcome of this bowl. The complementary colours of the reds and blues work well together and there is an element of movement and menace about the creature. The hollowed log in the grasp of the Octopus easily holds both knitting needles and crochet hooks. If you are interested in having one of these bowls they will be available to order at earthwoolfire.etsy.com or via firstname.lastname@example.org at £100 GBP +P&P ($168+shipping)
