Last week and the week ahead...

Piece for "I AM WATER" in progress...

Studio Cat....
Pieces hanging to dry, ponder, decide how many more to make/size/placement
"What? You don't need me to move, do you?" These are squares made by some grade 8 students that I assembled and displayed...


I had a wonderful week last week teaching Beckie in Greece some wonderful felted jewelry (by webcam, of course) I volunteered in my son's grade 6 class doing some crazy needle felting (aliens, unicorns, lots of birds, rabbits...etc!) I had another school event the following day and 2 students from nearby in my studio to felt vessels on Friday, which was super fun. Pattycake was a happy cat with new people to pet her. she became a pest, however, and was ousted from her studio space. Saturday I had an impromptu consultation/lesson with another felt friend/student. I spent the rest of the day felting a form for an upcoming local group invitational show...Good week!! I also bought some pretty fabric to create a skirt under my counter table and machine table to hide the crap underneath. Covering in progress.

This week coming I have web students Mon-Wed and a weekend bags class here in my studio. I am hoping to find more time to make more forms for the previously mentioned show and will be able to fit them in here and there. In the meantime, I must write my statement...and don't really have one for this piece. It could be so many things, I hate to limit how it can be interpreted. I'll figure it out...I'll be very vague, perhaps.

So, right now I think I will pour myself a glass of wine and go back to the studio and see what gets done!

A glass of wine after a day like that? You'll probably fall asleep on a soft purring.
Your felting is so beautiful. I'm in awe of what you do.

That would be "..a soft purring cat." Good grief! I need to proof read.

Creative work. Wonderful. The top photo is fascinating. It looks like you are doing a hair perm with old fashioned curlers. I took out my magnifying glass to check it out and then saw the final picture, so was relieved that you are not into perming wool.
