I have been an off and on blogger for a while and I left this site a while back after my father died. I am going to try to be a little more faithful. I was a member of an art gallery for 2 years and had a wonderful time with many great artists, but am now taking a break from that for a while. I need to spend more time with my 92 year old mother. She lives in Portland, Oregon which is about an hour away from me given the traffic.She relies on me to take her to doctors appointments and shopping.

When I left the art gallery I still had many felted garments. This shrug is one of them. It doesn't show very well, but it has fabric painted cheese cloth in it, and it looks great on.
This coat took forever to felt. The wool is beautiful. I'll have to take more pictures.It has inlaid silks throughout and several different wool's.
The two coats below have sold, but they are examples of garments that can be made in somewhat similar fashion. I never make anything the same again. It is too much fun to make different garments each time.
I am looking forward to visiting with some old friends again. I hope that some of them drop by to see me now that I am back.
