If you look closely you can see that the heel is turned on my wool socks...woohoo!! And check out the cool stitch markers that Denise - my knitting guru made for me to use. Thanks for all your help Denise!!
I really like it when students from the workshops send photos of their finished pieces. Jane first created the bottom blue/yellow/red bowl then went on to create the other two. Her email said she was planning to buy more clothesline. They are such fun. Thanks for sharing Jane!
What a delight to spend some time yesterday with some ladies in the Fabric Wrapped Basket Workshop I taught. It's always fun to see how they take the technique you teach and make it their own. This basket is what I created again from my remnant bin. I need to finish it still. Hopefully I'll have photos of the other creations from the day soon.
Something Beautiful is a wonderful site with mostly hand stamped unique silver jewelry creations ( very different looking than these earrings.)These earrings were created especially for me and include silver findings, speciality stones and fabric beads. It's wonderful to have such a creative daughter who indulges my like of balanced asymmetry and fabric. Thanks Melanie! She makes wonderful personalized Christmas, Wedding, Anniversary and Birthday gifts.
Since the 2 fabric wrapped bowls went into a gallery this week, I needed another one to use for my class sample for an upcoming workshop I am teaching. So, into the remnant bag in search of purples. Handles on this bowl are a first for me and quite simple.
There's an amazing 3 day weekend for youth, Chrysalis and college aged folks, Journey that is an opportunity for them to renew or rekindle their commitment to Christ. During the weekend, they receive small token reminders of God's love called Agape. I collect Altoid tins (rectangular and circular) and cover them with butterfly fabric for Agape.
