Spring Studio Tour
I've managed to pull the studio together for our spring studio tour. It was a close one though. I was vacuuming and washing the deck floor fifteen minutes before opening. I set some goals for myself (make 20 pieces of jewelry, dye 50 pounds of wool and 20 pounds of roving, put a few new kits together, get all the gardens weeded and mulched, write 3 new patterns, knit about 100 things and on and on). I did get the rug vacuumed.
Fresh spring colors and a new piece of fabulous fabric brighten up the space and make me happy.
Plenty of roving and felted purses.
Come on out and have a picnic. The table and chairs are ready, the view is great and it's gonna be a really nice weekend. Yay spring!
My new semi-solids.
Who needs a felt rock? Silly, I know, But aren't they cute?
When I was out in Missoula I bought two yards of this colorful fabric at this great store, Selvedge. I then picked up a few pieces of felt and some buttons, and a couple more small pieces of fabric. I finally put them all on the counter to pay and was mildly amazed that everything was color coordinated. I guess I'm into the orange, red, lime green and teal. Hey, a new colorway! A week later at a bead store I picked out beads in , yep, the same colors.
Some of the bracelets made with the beads.
I made lots of spring flower brooches with my hand dyed felt...
...and a few more 'Lambscapes.' Hope you can make it out. But enjoy the weekend, whatever you're doing.
