While at the gym this morning,
the beta endorphins suddenly kicked in and
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my piece of wet felting
from my class with Jane LaFazio.
So, I've begun embroidering on it!
Any guesses as to what it will be??
Speaking of wet felting,
Lea, one of my table mates in the class
shared a gorgeous piece of silk that she had dyed naturally.
It so inspired me that when I got home,
I had to give the process another try.
Here is my first result,
hanging on the line drying.
(hence the light shining through in the upper portion)
Lea is graciously sharing her process
and I have put this piece back into the dye bath
in hopes of getting even more color.
I'm really pretty thrilled with it right now!
We bought some locally crafted Adirondack chairs
for the lake.
When Charlie comes to visit,
he enjoys puttering around down there,
and the chairs will be more comfy
(for his adult companions) than the grass.
I sat there for a while this evening,
and it was really lovely:
there was a cool breeze
and lots of birdsong.
