A cup of tea please!?!

Wonder: Today as I go about Garden Preservation-freezing broccoli,harvesting squash,washing heads of lettuce before they bolt,and making various liqueurs that capture the colors and warmth of summer.  I am reminded of Emily Dickenson's thought," I dwell in possibility"-surely that is so as I gaze on the garden outside and as well as I gaze on the fabrics,fibers,paper,and yarn that fill my studio inside.  Waiting for me in Possibility!!!

Garden Inspiration

In the cool of the evening the garden pulsates with color-how quickly it translates to my hands!  I am over joyed at seeing the colors and feeling the softness of silk and wool as I work to blend these fibers.  Collaborating with a fellow artist to make visions real!!  All in preparation for July 14th at Florediem.

Blogging Not Slogging Through Life

Why a blogg?  Because I want to converse and share what I'm doing in the happy world of transformation that I find myself in.  Fiber tends to acquire ju-ju. That can be good or bad depending on many factors.  At any rate I find myself being gifted with much fiber that has acquired what to its past owners has been bad ju-ju.  I take that fiber and transform it into something that is warm and beautiful.  I find it a constant and interesting challenge to try and change the fiber and patterns I come across to achieve that end.
