A 13-year-old eagle huntress in Mongolia
A friend shared this photographic story by photographer and travel writer Asher Svidensky, and I think it is magnificent. Ashol-Pan may be the only girl apprentice using eagles for hunting in 2000 years. She frees the birds to find their prey. There is so m...

James's birds of the air quilt finished
The quilt that tops this blog is one I began for my grandson James before I even knew if he was a boy or girl, which is about two and a half years ago. I pieced it by machine and then began stitching the quilting by hand. I pieced some old fabrics from my s...
