Collars for Marcia

I made a beautiful collar for another Mother of the Bride. She lives in Maryland and it happens that she also raises Border Leicesters which have been used to create the collar below:

The brown collar was made with Wensleydale lambswool from JoAnn in Occidental, CA and then dipped in an Indigo Vat to get a blue background.

I swear I can’t ever get enough of these curls.

One more project, almost done!

This dress isn’t quite finished yet. Still needs color, straps and some adjustments here and there. Hmm… I might even add some beads to it. But, I’ve been missing blogging. It has been a fun and busy summer with some up and downs. Heck, if it wasn’t for the downs, I wouldn’t be having the ups, right? Nothing too extreme, but when it comes to computers problems, it can turn your life quite miserable, especially when all that I want to do, is be outdoors.

By the way, the jewelry has been designed by moi. I’ve been having a ride making jewelry again. It deserves a later post.

Lastly, yesterday, my friend Charmaine and I went to visit my friend Mimi and came back home with a nice fleece with lots of curls and I want so badly to make something totally different this weekend…

My last show of the year

Art by the water

Holiday Craft Fair

I wanted to do one more show this year, but I didn’t feel like driving anywhere and get into the frenzy of getting ready for one more craft show (don’t get me wrong, because I like doing craft fairs), but wanted to do something special and what a better way to do it surrounded by my friends who share the same interests when it comes to crafts, food and community. So my last show will be held here at home. If you feel like driving to Bolinas, my doors will be open and I will have a booth set up with my fiber and finished garments. It will be sort of an open studio, except that I will be joined by my friends with their own booths selling their hand made crafts. If you feel hungry, my friend Mirta will be offering her delicious Mexican food, so come and support handmade!
