Spreading the love...

I knew I was starting to feel better after losing my sister when I wanted to get back into the studio and surround myself once again with possibilities.

What I have been doing is making things for people who are important to me.

I dyed some silk scarves for my two sisters, and they are on their way to them now. Here is a peek- and as I am posting these, I just realized I meant to put a fringe on the purple and black one- I completely forgot!
Hopefully they will be happy with them anyways!

Then I picked up my crochet hook, something I haven't done in many years, and attempted to make a little sweater and bonnet set- something I have never done at all. These were delivered to my stepdaughter who is expecting the little bundle of joy who will be joining our family this spring!


And a tied fleece blanket, just because you can never have enough blankets with a baby, right?
(I didn't crochet the set quickly enough to make a matching blanket! lol)

I am currently working on a fiber scarf for my youngest sister's birthday in a couple of weeks. I have to get it done and in the mail no later than Monday or she won't get it in time. So I will be able to show you how it turned out very soon.

I am still working in the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" and really enjoying it. I am hoping it will help me to sketch better on the fly, so that when we travel, I can draw in my journal as well as journaling.

My art quilt for the wall is nearing completion, as is a bed quilt I have worked on, on and off, for the better part of four years now. Something always pushes it aside... lol 

Maybe if I focus, I can get those two projects finished and move on to the next exciting new idea!

Thank you to all who sent me their love and sympathy- maybe we don't know each other in person, but you are my friends and I cherish you!
