Happy November!

Time is going so fast! It’s been a couple weeks since my last post. My Easy and Fun Silk Scarf Dyeing Class last Saturday was so much fun. Everyone went home with two beautiful scarves. This is my last class at Scattered Art. Dolly will be closing her shop in December. I sure have enjoyed…

A lesson on just “being”

This year’s vacation was a lesson on just “being” for both of us.  This was not something I wanted to do; It’s something I had no control over. Dave and I flew into Maui on the 11th. On the way to the rental car shuttle I fell. I had fallen several years ago in the…

Sunday Roundup: July 17

It’s time for a Sunday Roundup. I’ve been harvesting blueberries every other morning. I get out there early before the heat sets in. This year’s harvest has not been as productive as in the past although we will end up with four gallon bags for the freezer. That doesn’t include eating blueberries every morning in…

Playing with Dyed Silk

I taught a couple more Easy and Fun Silk Scarf Dyeing classes this month. In these classes students practice on a piece of silk before they actually dye their scarves. In the past I’ve suggested making cards with those scraps. For these classes I had finished cards to show and the supplies needed for them…
