Returning from Hamilton
I had a great time at The Fiber Festival I went to. Sarah came to visit so that was the best part.
Brenna, Sarah and Kyle willing post for me. It was so great to see all of the kids.
Here is a picture that Sarah drew in my sketchbook. A profile drawing of Kyle.
Of course I had to get a few new goodies while I was there. This necklace was being sold by a women selling all her old jewelry. Its a birds nest and the eggs are freshwater pearls. It seemed to fit me well.
This is a skein of merino/bamboo/nylon sock yarn. A friend was knitting with it and I really liked the way all the color was playing out in the sock as she knit it. It has many shades of green.
I also bought this pair of fingerless mits. They were the right color and they were really inexpensive. I have always wanted a pair of these, so now I don't need to make them myself.
There is a wonderful article at Creativity Portal. Its called Aging techniques, Mixed Media and collage by Tatiana Kuzyk. There are several pages to look at but it covers a lot of ground and uses all sorts of mediums. If you have never been to Creativity Portal it is wonderful. Its full of projects and articles to inspire and get you going creatively.
