Thanx! 8-] This was my signature scarf for a decade. I wore it 'til I wore it out! It was such a serendipity -- a hand-painted warp -- I painted it with primary colors because I knew nothing about colors then, and it turned out to be the best experiment I ever did. It went with absolutely everything I owned!
Hi Ellen. thanks for inviting me to be a friend. As you could probably see I am rather lacking in them ; ) I only have basic knowledge on computers and sometimes I find it all a little confusing and frustrating. I am very interested in your 'sprang caps', what is the history of these?
thanks for your comment, it's a collage made with dyed artist tissue and other handmade papers on a layered watercolor background. I wrote the words with white ink. the whole thing was made shortly after my granddaughter was born.
Now that I'm "dipping my toes" (or rather my fingers)into fiber arts, I realize that I my first love will allways be collage/mixed media. I'm just now finding out what can all be done including fiber into art. The pieces showing on your pictures are wondeful. Have you been doing this long? I'll try to get some of my art onto the web so you can see it. Now I better get to work ...sigh..would much rather be in my studio having fun .
Hi Ellen, Figured out how to put some photos on my page. Thanks for the nudge. Your work is great. Weaving is so cool, and yours is really wonderful. I love the one with the vase. Also the one with the greenish bluish twill and the band along the edge! Nice to get to know you.
Oh you must do your hair again, at the moment mine is just black ( yeh, to cover up the grey too) and I keep on thinking I must do something to make it more exciting. Sometimes I like to do things just to shock people. My neighbours are very 'staid' and I can feel the curtains twitching when I walk the dog, so I like to give them something to look at ; ) I followed your blog and was so amazed at your weavings and the catfluff yarn. My husband has a very long beard that is always shedding hair perhaps I will start saving it ! Looking at your indigo dying I did wonder if perhaps you had used that on your hair, I have often thought I would try that , got to be more natural than the dyes I use.
Hi Ellen, thankyou so much for your comment. It came just at a moment when I was considering closing down my blog account, you have inspired me to update it. I don,t really make dolls, I just seem to be at a point in my life when I am trying to find my 'mojo', so I just do whatever inspires me at the moment and dolls it seems to be. I am loving your hair, I too have often had blue hair , although it frustrates me how easily it washes out. I am working on a 'person' at this moment and coincidently her hair is exactly like yours ( I am using curly wensleydale locks). I will try and post some photos. Lovely to meet you.
