I have been busy washing and dyeing fleeces and I hope to update my etsy shop soon, but I have also been busy learning a new found love to use all my fiber I have!!!
I have always loved knitting and felting bags and bowls etc, well now I have gotten the wet felting bug and hope to progress into and onto more fun and bigger projects! After my class with Pam MacGregor at Woolfest in Kirtland at the end of June, where I made my fun cuff I posted a picture of in my last post, I decided to contact her and take her up on her offer to have classes in her studio at her home!! I can not even begin to describe the fun I had , what a lovely home and of course fab studio Pam has!! I learned so much in 2 days my head was reeling with all the techniques and ideas going on in there! Not only that but all the eye candy in her studio and home was just sensational!! She is a wonderful teacher and so delightful to spend time with! I was made welcome by her, as well as her husband and the wonderful menagerie of 4 legged friends/"family members" she has!! Her dogs, cats, chickens, pot bellied pig, and llamas too!! Sadly I was so in love with all the wool fun, that I didn't get pics of her lovely home and gardens etc, but I will next time!! I have pics of some posted in my flickr you can take a peek at! Also some of my pages I did in the technique book I worked on plus lots of pieces from Pam that she has created!! Her work is wonderful!! I had the best time!! I hope to get to go back again soon!! Below are just a few pics!! check out my flickr for more! Thanks Pam!! I truly loved my time with you and hope I'll be able to come back soon!!! I will be embellishing all my "book pages" as well so I will post pics as I complete them! may be in the fall as now I want to keep trying new things!!
