Season Greetings

This is a picture of Dargo ( Ragdoll) and Higby ( Dalmatian) taken in Cold Lake AB 2004. Dargo was only a year old and Higby was 7. Good thing about pets they really don't change much over the years. Both are still doing very well.

This next picture is of Rudy this year. Rudy is about a year and a half . He found Higby and I when we were out for a walk last summer (07). He was is in rough shape but knew a good thing when he saw it and though it doesn't show in this picture he has to be one of the happiest and smartest animals that I have owned.

Colour Wheel

I like dyeing my fibers and I try to keep a record of what I do. In these colour wheels I used G&S dyes (http://www.gsdye.com/) with very good results. The material is cotton and the threads are rayon ( inside) cotton and silk(out side).

Today was a typical November day , cloudy and dreary so a good time to do some experimenting on the computer. I love Kaleidoscopes so I had a go at manipulating a photo of one of Dads Sunflowers from this summer. These flowers were huge and must have been more then 12 ft tall.

Playing with the program can be very addictive and time flies by.

These are but a few. I have no plans for the sunflower yet but other photos for another project are on the drawing board.

Snow day

Yesterday was a snow day, all day!. Very unusal to have a snowy Saturday and I didn't have to be any wheres. It was the perfect day to rearrange the studio, work on a project thats been nagging me, and even managed to get a loaf of bread made. Whole wheat with orange that I start in the bread maker and the bake in the oven.

A photo from one of last years snow days. There were 24 "stormy" days between November and March. Good days to stay in and be creative.

As a Fiber Artist I am always looking for new ways to display my art work so a few years ago I decide to explore the doll form as venue. The end results were 14 stump dolls that were created from start to finish in 3 months. The dolls were part of an exhibit called "Links"that showed in western Canada with the Fiber Arts Group Articulation.
