Interesting hairy email from L

" Hi Fi,
Thought you might be interested in this. Basically it's like taxidermy, but made out of crochet! (Or 'crochetdermy') It's amazing... if not a little bit scary (especially the lion and the bear)
Also... I was at Styal Mill yesterday and I was reading some stuff about what happened to mill workers when they ran away. There were two girls in the 1800s who ran away for a week and when they were caught they were going to punish them by cutting their hair off! They didn't, because a magistrate said they couldn't, but I thought that it was quite symbolic.
Anyway, just thought you'd like to know these weird and wonderful things that I've picked up.
Love you,
L. x "
