Need a little spontaneity in your artistic life??

Need a little spontaneity in your artistic life??

Do you have a creative block?
I just found a very fun web site,,  (Credit:Jackson Pollock by Miltos Manetas, original design Stamen)  Once you click the link just put the cursor in the white screen, move it around and click again to change colors...very freeing! and yes colorful!!

Scarves So Sweet!

Saturday's Festive Felt Scarves class was a great day.  We had a great group of students all very excited to learn felt making and work with interesting fiber.  We made two scarves, the first was merino (I used short hair batts) and then we incorporated Patterns on our scarves.  The afternoon's scarf was made with exotic fiber, mohair tops.  Very silky, and very slippery....We should have a sign that says caution: slippery when wet!!  All in all a good day. 
Oh and I made Irish Soda Bread (the recipe from Dingle Ireland) as the snack.  It turned out very tasty if I don't say so myself!
