This morning I took a picture of my newest felted item for the upcoming workshop at the Beehive Wool Shop.
This little Christmas penguin has had the song Santa Baby going through my head all day, replacing “baby” with “penguin”. Needless to say, it’s been a long day!
The upcoming workshop is on November 18th, from 10:30-12:30am. Contact or drop by the Beehive to register!
The Island Knits Fibre Market is over, and I’d say it was a great success! The Victoria Public Market was packed all day, and hopefully all the vendors made oodles of sales!
I had a lot of fun meeting and chatting with people – there are so many creative and interesting people in this city.
Here are a few blurry and busy pictures of my booth.
Thanks you to everyone for all your support leading up to this event – it was much appreciated! 😘
A whole lotta needle felting!
Vacations get me all fired up to be creative, but alas, during the last week of my holiday I fell and sprained my thumb. Sigh. It is, of course, the thumb on my dominant hand. I’ve been getting very antsy about not doing anything creative, but I have come to realize that maybe I need to turn my thoughts to what I can do, rather than focus on what I can’t. I decided this week that it was time for a bit of a website overhaul, and so it has begun. You won’t find any “construction zone” blank pages – I’ll just start making little changes here and there.
Please let me know your thoughts on the changes, and especially let me know if something isn’t working. Hopefully this will be a fairly smooth transition.
Thanks for all your support! Here is a picture of Smudge helping me needle felt (which I can do for short amounts of time).
Non-arty content ahead…
Sometimes when I’m preparing for a trip, I do silly things. The packing for this trip to Italy was no exception. One of the items I bring with me is a small adapter to plug my camera’s USB cable into my iPad so that I can edit and post pictures. Apparently a vintage phone cable looks similar to the adapter cable. Sigh. So I don’t have a lot of pictures to share, as I forget to use my phone for pictures. Hopefully I’ll track down one of the connectors, but until then here are a few pictures of the ground floor of the place we’re staying in Naples.
It’s an unusual place. When our cabbie dropped us off, it was across the street at a fairly posh place (similar name) – that wasn’t where we had booked. One of the hotel guys walked us over to where we would be staying, and there was a little culture shock at the entrance. It’s a wonderful, crumbly old place, that gives no indication of what the B&B we’re staying at is like. The B&B is modern, clean and lovely and we’re all very content. The elevator takes one person at a time, but yay – there’s an elevator!
More pictures to follow if I either find a cable or remember to use my phone. Ciao!
Lovely arches everywhere
