Something about this thread made me take a lot of pictures of it. I couldn't even continue weaving for awhile, until I was done admiring its pattern...or something.So I was pretty happy weaving the pink and orange chenille scarves; the colors made me think of the tulips to come. Giving myself some credit or perhaps [...]

Winter has been long and winter has been dark, thereby my manic flower making. Lots of color with some of my lampworked beads for the centers and made into pins. Ah... that's better; not a trip to Tahiti, but it will do until the real thing pops out of the ground. Might be awhile judging [...]

It’s not all about fiber
