Time for a refresh

Update time!

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).

Easter Eggs Part Two

Have you been swithering about whether or not you want to take a workshop on needle felting Easter eggs?  Good news – while the April 1st class is full, another has been scheduled for April 8th.  As always, space is limited. Drop by the Beehive or give them a call at 250-385-2727 to register. Hope to see you there!

It’s easier than dyeing…

Needle felting eggs, that is. It’s definitely less messy… well, maybe less messy. Hmmm… forget what I just said. The mess is easier to clean up, well, unless you have a cat – that can make it challenging.

All this to say there is a new needle felting workshop scheduled at the Beehive Wool Shop on April 1 from 10:30am – 12:30pm. We’ll be making and decorating eggs – all supplies provided. It will be up to you how detailed you want to get, but I will show you how to layer colours for shading, and how to add dimension to your creation. The egg can be displayed in a variety of ways – in an egg-cup, propped against something or hanging like an ornament.  Space is limited (six people), so sign up by calling (250-385-2727) or dropping in to the Beehive (1700 Douglas Street). Hope to see you there!

A Plethora of Pumpkins

Wow.  And once again… wow.  I just finished a workshop at the Beehive Wool Shop, and I am so impressed with the pumpkins that were made… and the owl… That’s right – in addition to some people making second pumpkins, one person made an owl.  Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the owl (it wasn’t finished), but here is a picture of all the pumpkins. Sorry for the poor quality of the picture – two cups of coffee apparently makes for a shaky hand!  Thanks for a great class – that was a lot of fun!
