it's been a while...

I realized I missed January completely!  I have a good reason.  January welcomed my new grand-baby into our lives.  Here she is wearing the superwash merino cocoon, that I made so many months ago.  (not the best photo of baby, but a nice one of the cocoon!)

Here's a nice one of her gray-blue eyes and a headband that I made.
 I have also hosted two workshops in my felting studio.  They are so fun.  Email me if you would like to be notified of future workshops.
 AND, I began a wonderful relationship with a charming shop in Jordan Village.  Pamela's now carries my nunofelt scarves, shawls and coats.  The rust coloured coat below was featured in the Fashion Show on the Ice Wine Weekend in January.

I have been knitting as well, but not as much and mostly socks and simple shawls.  No new patterns for a bit.  I will be showing a felt Art piece shortly, hoping to place it into a fibre art gallery soon.

Love the cocoon and what a lucky grand baby - a future of wonderful handmade items from her grandmother.

It's So nice to meet you Kathy! I would love to see a photo of you in the coat. These are some of my favourite colours, all those warm rusts, browns and black! I hope you wear it a lot.
Check in with Pamela's next week to see the butterfly coat in person. All are one of a kind.
Cheers, Chris
