Brenda Stratton's Art & Teaching!

Yesterday (Saturday March 21st, 2009) I had the opportunity to observe & learn from Brenda Stratton. Not only did she teach us about the basics of felting, but she assisted us in making one-of-a-kind creations. Here is a picture of a bag I made for my mother. She also gave us a demonstration of dyeing yarn and roving.

A big thank you to Brenda. Awesome job, you must have been exausted.

MurrMade I.D. Labels

After a lot of chatter about whether I should put I.D. labels on my creations, I have finally decided to do it. Spent the day on Saturday at a local silkscreening shop learning all about the silkscreening process and making my labels.

It has been a cold week here and I have had some extra time off work to knit a pair of socks and a couple hats.
