Felt Handbags and Skiing







Once upon a time I used to make felt handbags and ski alot. Now I don't really do either. However yesterday was so absolutely beautiful that I decided to join a friend of mine who was in town skiing at Marble Mountain. I could not have picked a better day if I tried! As for the felt handbags...I'm teaching a workshop at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College on Saturday. Students can make handbags, tea cosies, slippers, or hats...whatever their little heart's desire. I'm looking forward to it. Take care. Brenda

Whoosh!



Whoosh......there goes another three weeks! I taught a class at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College yesterday in Natural Dyeing. I also combine that with the technique of Shibori I wish I had thought to take a picture of my students' scarves because they were beautiful. I attended a Photography Workshop 2 weekends ago and learned the most important thing to do when taking photos is to use a tripod. I have a tripod which I used that weekend but now I'm missing the bolt to attach my camera! One step forward...three steps back. Ya have to laugh. I'm going to try to write at least once a week and include something I'm working on. In the meantime please enjoy my friend Shawn's Blog as she posts everyday. take care. Brenda
