Home from retreat, and feeling energized with new ideas, things I want to try, and some projects in several stages of completion. (Pictures to be posted as things get done.)
I have a new class basket, The Dance, in that stage where I now know what doesn't work, but am pretty sure of what WILL work. One of members of my group loves the proto-type, so it will not be wasted. We bartered one of her smaller quilted pieces for this version, once I get it rimmed.
A new art piece, Northwest Vines II, was started (it took 3 hours to trim and place the 146 spokes out of 3 mm dyed reed). I have about 20 hours into it, reflecting about 2 inches of weaving past the base.
The crocheted baby blanket for my goddaughter's baby is started in a variegated pastel yarn, making an alphabet design. I love working on it, filling the fibers and design with love for them both.
Worked a bit on the salla bag for class - will have the sides done as required for our second class this next Saturday.
We had a class in silk painting, so I now have a window hanger of a dragonfly for the main bathroom at Lopez - I needed something to block the window, and this is perfect! I still need to brush on a medium to protect it, but it's nice to have at least one thing completed.
It was a successful, productive, loving weekend filled with work, learning and laughter.
