How Sausages Are Made



Heat wave today!  Panic in Wisconsin.  Above are a few pictures of my work today:
stuffing (with organic kapok), and sewing up new ragweave pillows.  I thought of a sausage factory.

Speaking of, here's some fun summer reading that cheered me up.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for that link. Living in Michigan, the absurdity of it all was driven home last week.

Love the "sausages" too.

thank you for that lol-read! I must go back again and continue following those two, I'll also tell my mother about them (she's 78); when will politicians stop telling us what (not) to do?! and when will we stop listening and make up our own minds....thanks again, I'm still giggling.

That was great!! Had me laughing..... which was hard to do since I had just written to somebody incensed by the voting on the farm bill and was all heated up!
Politicians are all worms in Monsanto's garden.... GMO worms!

I meant to ask you Susan.... where did you find organic kapok?

Julie,
It is a great material, and packs very firmly. It was used for life vests, so my pillows could be grabbed in a water emergency. Well, that may be an unsubstantiated claim. It's best to work with it outside on a breezy day. I bought it online, and I think it was a company called Near Sea Naturals.

These two are wonderful and prove that not everyone morphs into a Republican as they gray.

The most feminist and progressive women I've met recently have also been the oldest. That's so encouraging.
