Simply Red...

A simple red hat to share today. I've had a very busy week of dyeing silk, felting, making a lot of nuno,...and there is so much to get done before the Michigan Fiber Festival, which is August 17-21 in Allegan, Michigan.

I'll be teaching at the Michigan Fiber Festival. I was informed by the workshop committee that I have some openings remaining in the multiple resist bag class. The details are on the Michigan Fiber Festival website,if you are interested. The other classes have filled. I will not be teaching any nuno classes at this event, but nuno will be incorporated into the bags if desired.

So much to do, so this is all for today.
Be Happy and touch others with your gifts,

It's toooooo hot!
is where I'm heading off to in a few short hours. I just returned from beautiful Asheville, NC and home just long enough to catch my breath, do a bit of dyeing, unpack and re-pack the van, do laundry, answer a few emails, pack orders, pay bills, all while under incredible heat indexes. I can not function well in this heat, so I keep ice packs on my person at all times. We do not have central air, only a small window air conditioner. It at least dries it out...or so that's what I am suppose to say, right?

Sold most of my nuno while in Asheville, so I am heading off to Castle Farm with very little other than newly dyed silks. I have one I am working on, but that may be more than I can accomplish right now. The air conditioner is keep the house at 88 degrees. Can you tell the heat is bothering me?

I leave you with these photos of the newly dyed silks. I am getting requests to teach a nuno class in October. Are you interests? If so, I need to hear from you so that I can finalize the dates.

Shalom and good felting!

Green Bird House

Just a few minutes to write today, much to do, still getting ready to leave for Asheville, NC. We leave early next week and will be away for a week. I will miss being home.

I got to thinking about how our felt bird pods....(you've made one, haven't you?) are really green and they last a long time even left out of doors throughout the year. I just love the versatility of felt and felt products.

This is a small sample of the next project I am working on. It may be mid August before I get it all done. I am the slowest feltmaker ever!

Off to get more stuff ready to go.

Felt Happy!
