So, as I am in my studio working feverishly before spring, enjoying the warm afternoon sunshine, I am also befriending one of the backyard squirrels. They are so funny, racing around in the yard in the morning, digging tiny holes for acorns, and chittering. I have been leaving little pieces of left-over gingerbread house on the end of the banister, which just happens to be right in front of the window where I sit to work. Usually the little critter just takes the piece and runs with it, but sometimes it just sits there and nibbles. Today it sat there in front of me (on the other side of glass) and nibbled for several minutes! It will hold it's little paw up to its chest as it surveys the surroundings for possible danger. It's so cute:D (well, except when they dig up my flower bulbs! grr).
Sunday I brought all of my new felted hats to the yarn sho
Below is a picture of the community clay wall piece: It was been cut into pieces and is drying to go into the kiln. (Journey of Dreams, Diane Doyle, fundraiser piece)
So, I just finished felting and sculpting 5 new felted hats tonight! They are sitting in my studio drying right now. They will be dry in a couple of days, and I will then be able to defuzz them, line and trim them. Then deliver them to the lovely Asheville NC Homecrafts store in the Grove Arcade! This batch is all light shades: beige, cream, gray, and linen colors. Three new fedoras and two new cloche-type hats.
A few days ago I finished the colorful cat painting I started in the last post. I am anxiously awaiting to have it scanned, so I can start offering prints of my three new paintings! After I frame them, they will be available for purchase in Flat Rock, at the scrumptious Flat Rock Bakery (give it a google, then give it a taste!).
I also recently finished a gaggle of new feltings, and since I am finished with the hats and paintings, I am going to start some more wall-hangings....I hope to be well-stocked for my spring shows this year! As soon as I know dates on shows, I will post all of the necessary information on my homepage....hope to see you there!
