My sister joined me in studio Saturday, making jewelry. Lynnette came in for lunch. I like company and visitors.
I needlefelted detail on Peace Felt 2010, and it's complete for mailing out in a week or two.
Finished Pink Pockets. Pockets is turning into a theme. It's very lightly needlefelted. I like the feel of fluffy batts of wool, and coaxing pockets into it.
I did another piece in my "Times of My Life" series, Baby. Baby is a very lightly needlefelted piece. So I have Baby, 8, Hippie, 28, and Bride. I need to take photos of all of these. Hippie is the first piece of textile art-to-wear I ever made, back in the late 60's-- a pair of hip hugger bell bottom jeans that I patched and embroidered (NFS of course).
I started a needlefelt background for a rocky beach, and worked on another piece that's a birdseye view of sea and marsh that needs to be wet-felted before I needlefelt detail.
In more mundane efforts, I threw all of the loose stuff in front of the shelves into bins, so it looks a little more organized. Open Studio is coming up the first weekend of November, and the studio needs to be accessible and I need to have display space.
Looking forward to taking Lynette's class in encaustic. (http://www.lynettehaggard.com/) Should be fun to experiment with mixing encaustic and fiber.
Counting down the days until I get back in the studio next Saturday. And vacation week follows-- up to Maine for Monday through Wednesday, and then home and studio. Need to gather together new things for the Danforth Museum Shop for the fall season.
