“Anybody caught selling macrame in public should be dyed a natural color and hung out to dry.” —Calvin Trillin.

Amusingly eerie, macramé owls coincided in popularity with the 1970s Fibre Arts movement.
Owls were the harbinger of doom for the Fibre Arts discipline, claim some critics.
RIP Farley Mowat.
Awesome owl art.
