Dear friends and visitors -- may you be Blessed with all good things for 2008. I wish you a very Happy New Year!
I've been MIA since before December and I do mean "missing in action" -- what is the action you might ask, well probably not too much different from those of you who need to take the time for the Christmas preparations that make those special memories for your families -- especially the little ones. I love entertaining the family and try making "fairytale" special happenings for the granddchildren as well as the extended family granddchildren particularly during special holidays such as Christmas, Easter and birthdays. Then there are those special gifts to be created. In the middle of all this activity, I've been nuno felting (another obsession) and took a fabulous class on Shibori which I've been doing for a couple of years having taught myself from a book. There is nothing like taking a class from a trained professional to boost the creative spirit and what I hadn't tried before was pre-folding and stitching. Here is an example of a Shibori collar as well as some examples of nuno felting. For some time I've been experimenting with wet/needle felting -- my passion.
