Day and Night

I've got a great thing going - in my studio, in the garden, pool late afternoon and/or gallivanting and/or visiting the family during the day; doing prep work for some easy felting or stitching while watching tv with my husband in the evening (when we are not out and about).  I hope to have a whole bouquet of flowers by the first weekend of October; I've made four so far and already given one away as a thank you to the person who organizes our Habersham knitting (social) group.  Didn't get a picture of the pink one but I'm sure there will be many more.  These are lariat necklaces which are perfect for the Southern woman - a blossom arranged around her delicate neck while she sips her sweet tea (wine!) under the palmettos and crescent moon - hahahaha! I've been reading too many Southern novels so fun!

Anyway, still stuck on Joomchi (layers of delicious mulberry paper rolled together with nothing but water and then manipulated with your hands)  which is one of the other things I do in the evening as I have to be busy doing something with my hands to be happy.  I visited the Savannah Dick Blick store (what a treasure trove of everything an artists loves!) and spent some time with the resident artist brainstorming about the best way to display my Joomchi for the FAB (Fiber Arts Beaufort) and now I cant wait to see how my ideas will transfer into reality- stay tuned for more!
