Talk about syncronicity! I just got into a discussion on another
list because someone complimented my parchment/vellum skins as being
'works of art' in their own right. I insisted that while they
sometimes can be quite beautiful, I'm just a humble craftsman,
making raw materials for other artists/craftspeople.
And I like to think the goats helped!
Cheers, Rick C.
