Fiber Fun!

Times have been full of fiber fun! Some of my creations were chosen for a Fiber Art Exhibit that ran at the Bellingham Public Library October 01 through November 10. It was an honor and a thrill to see my work displayed there!

The Whatcom Weavers Guild hosts an Annual Fibers and Beyond Show and Sale at the Hampton Inn, Fox Hall every Fall. I was happy to be a part of this years Show. I was able to meet the most wonderful and talented Fiber Artists. To top it off the Sale was a great success and I sold more than I had anticipated and made some wonderful connections. I look forward to participating next Fall!

Tiny Dancer

For my Daughter's 3rd birthday we signed her up for dance lessons. She loves her dance classes so much. Unfortunately its only one day a week, so she spends the other 6 days continually asking me when her next class is, lol. During class time they have a curtain covering the dance studio windows so the kids are not distracted by parents or others during lessons. I have to admit, I keep moving the curtain ever so slightly so I can peek at her.... I can't seem to help myself... it is such a joy to watch her dance. Now I take my needle felting with me. This keeps me from sticking my head behind the curtain too often (which I'm sure is a relief to the instructors) and I get some work done.....
