Beginning rug hooking class and new Easter pastel wools

I hooked up a small mat this week which I will be teaching at Whistle Stop Quilt Shop in March.  A very simple primitive piece geared for beginners but fun for all.

My other adventure this week was to dye up some spring pastel Eastery colors.  Here's the bundle I came up with:

There's eggshell, rose pink, peach, chick yellow, mint green, robin's egg blue, sky blue and violet.  Yummy!

I also have a new rug on the frame.  But... it's too early for pictures just yet.  Stay tuned.

New year, new venture

It's been another busy week.  With much happiness and excitement I am happy to report that is now carrying my hand-dyed woolens. Connie was SO excited too!
Check out  Whistle Stop on facebook .

ALSO, I will be teaching a wool applique sewing case which I designed, hot off the press, on February 23rd.  Here's the info.... 

Contact the shop to sign up!

And one other item of note.  I will also be teaching a rug hooking class in March for beginners (and beyond).  More info on this to come. Please check back later. I hope to see some familiar faces and look forward to meeting some new ones.  Woolly wishes!

A clearer mind and Studio

It feels good to clean out.  I have a renewed freshness to pursue new projects.  A few pics of my more organized studio...

A new pic of my granddog Lola.  I just have to post it!  She just sat there for several minutes lookin good!

I did get started on a new project today, but it's too early to have anything worth showing you.  Give me a few days.

Clearing my mind and studio

It's been a VERY busy past 3 months, three shows and and the holidays in there too.  It goes without saying I'm tired.  BUT, now that my calendar is free for a while, I also have a renewed sense of freshness.  I am busy cleaning out my studio and looking forward to new projects.  My mind is more at easy and it is only then I can let new ideas come out into new art.

 Since I haven't any new art to show at this point.  I thought I would include a shot of my booth at last week's QFAM (Quilt and fiber art marketplace) show in Sanford, NC.  Thank you to all of you who stopped by.
